Lighthouse is the title of the Croatian entry in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. The idea behind the song and its lyrics is well reflected also in the preview video clip, which has been premiered today. You will see stunning impressions of light and shadow from the island of Hvar, including its lighthouse. Watch the video clip now!

Nina Kraljić will sing Lighthouse in Stockholm, in the First Semi-Final of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. The song was written by Andreas Grass and Nikola Paryla. Today the preview video of the song has been premiered.
In the preview video materials from the short film Hvar Into the Storm were used. It captures the spectacular atmospheric phenomena of the island in stunning slow motion and time lapse images. During a two-year period, Mario Romulić and Dražen Stojčić were lucky enough to capture some spectacular thunderstorms in slow motion and time lapse techniques. They shot over 350,000 photographs, picking "only" the 10,000 best frames for this film. The filming took place on the island of Hvar itself, but also from the mountain of Biokovo and the nearby island Brač.
Watch the video clip of Lighthouse below!

Lighthouse - The lyrics

verse1: Lightning strikes on the sea Breaking waves around me
Stormy tides and I feel My ship capsizing
Out of sight - saving shore Ever gone - evermore
Ropes untied - rain that pours The waters rising
pre-chorus: In devastating times I keep this hope of mine Even in the darkest night
chorus 1: 'cause there is a light Guiding my way Keeping me safe when oceans rage
There in the sky Hiding away Never to die and fade
I know that I'll find your
Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse
verse2: Harbours near No more fear Wall of clouds disappears
So I steer to the pier In tears - arriving
pre-chorus2: No devastating times I kept this hope of mine Even in the darkest night
chorus 2: 'cause there is a light Guiding my way Keeping me safe when oceans rage
There in the sky Hiding away Never to die and fade
I know that I'll find your
Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse
chorus 3: 'cause there is a light Guiding my way Keeping me safe when oceans rage
There in the sky Hiding away Never to die and fade
I know that I'll find your
Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse Your lighthouse
I know that I'll find your
