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
