Eurovision 2015 is a great chance to present myself as a solo artist. I believe in my entry song as it has so many powerful messages. It is truly a song with great meaning of which the most important is ‘that every heart deserves a fight’ and we should never give up. We must fight for our happiness and for the better future. I’m going to the Eurovision to share this message with the European audience, says Elnur.

Elnur's music career

The Lyrics of Hour Of The Wolf

I hold my breath, I´m on the edge Storming hills, I´ve been lost and found I hope they're coming, I can hear them running I once met peace, he said that he Soon would have the answers to this hurt And my mind was made up, I would never give up No I won't sleep tonight If tomorrow comes I'll loose my mind I won't give up my right, I know every heart deserves a fight I will beat on the drum, rise above with me I will go till I'm numb, rise above with me No I won't sleep tonight They whine and roar, hungry for more Yellow glowing eyes, I’m hypnotized I feel brave yet scared, but I'll stay prepared Oh have my soul, it’s destined It’s written in the sky Let me not be blinded by this hurt Set him loose I’m ready For the stars to guide me No I won't sleep tonight If tomorrow comes I'll loose my mind No I won't sleep tonight If tomorrow comes I'll loose my mind I won't give up my right, I know every heart deserves a fight I will beat on the drum, rise above with me I will go till I'm numb, rise above with me No I won't sleep tonight No I won't sleep tonight If tomorrow comes I'll loose my mind I won't give up my right, I know every heart deserves a fight
