The lyrics convey a sense of yearning for a deep connection with someone special.

The chorus reflects a hopeful anticipation for a natural and profound love, one that is both serene on the outside and passionate within.

Overall Impression

From the moment “Future Lover” graced my ears, I was hooked, but nothing could have prepared me for the transformative experience of Brunette’s live performance in Liverpool.

It was as if the song transcended mere sound waves and became a living, breathing entity, full of raw emotion and exquisite artistry.

This wasn’t just a performance; it was a masterclass in how to elevate music to the realm of pure art.

Brunette’s delivery gave me—and undoubtedly countless others—goosebumps, solidifying this act as one of the best that Armenia has ever sent to the Eurovision stage.

There’s a particular moment in the song that deserves a standing ovation: when Brunette transitions into singing in Armenian.

It’s a seamless yet striking shift that adds a profound layer of emotion and authenticity to the performance, tugging at the heartstrings in a way that only music can.

It’s a testament to Brunette’s skill as an artist that she can honor her heritage and tell a universal story of longing and love all at once.

However, it’s worth mentioning that the semi-final performance was nearly shrouded in mystery—or rather, an overzealous use of the smoke machine.

The stage was so engulfed in fog that Brunette was almost lost in the haze. Thankfully, the feedback was taken to heart, and the smoke was dialed back for the grand final, allowing Brunette’s magnetic presence to shine through unobstructed.

The final performance was visually and sonically clearer, allowing every nuance of Brunette’s artistry to be appreciated in full. It was a wise decision that undoubtedly contributed to the overall impact of this unforgettable Eurovision entry.

Brunette – “Future Lover” – Lyrics (Original)

I just wanna make art
Read books and just find someone
Who likes me enough to kiss my face
I wanna explore with him and visit old bookstores
And cute little things, like drink smoothies at near cafes

Oh oh oh…
Drink smoothies at near cafes
Oh oh oh…

Oh future lover, I hope it all comes naturally
I hope our love is quiet outside, but loud inside oh baby
Oh future lover, this song I wrote for you
This song I wrote for you my future lover

I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good

It’s like a daydream, but I got some other, better plans
I wanna scream and shout
My heart caught in chains
Cold heart, cold hands, fire in my veins
Fire in my veins, heart in chains
I’m a volcano that is going to explode in a sec’
I’m so hypnotised by someone that I’ve never ever met
Don’t wanna forget, am I dreaming yet?
Poetic dream, I don՚t want it to end oh
3 minutes of making impossible plans
7 minutes of unnecessary panic attacks
Here I go with the coldest hands
Here I go with still no plans oh, still no plans
I can’t cool off, no I can’t relax
Lord what I’m gonna’ do my pain just attacks
I still have the coldest hands
Oh my Lord, my Lord
My pain, my panic attacks, oh

I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good

U du indznits’ herru
Lk’vats yes herru, herru yes du
Yerazums yes u du eink’ lurr
Molorvum eink’ herru – herru herrvum
