Eurovision2017 performers: OG3NE from the Netherlands
Eurovision2017,Performers, OG3NE, Netherlands

These are three sisters: Lisa (22) and twins Amy and Shelley (21). In 2014 they were the world's first ever group to win The Voice and their great breakthrough in the Netherlands followed in 2016. The very personal and harmonious Lights and Shadows is a musical tribute to their mother, written by their father Rick, to inspire those whose families are disrupted by illness. Their mother has been seriously ill for several years. The impact on their close, musical family is huge. They support each other and take care of each other, but still there is also a lot of grief.

OG3NE's success creates valuable moments of happiness. "We will do everything in our power to make our country proud. We want to see a proud smile on our mother's face too. This is our way to say thank you for everything she has given us and for what she means to us".

"We have been fans of the contest our whole lives, we want to make our country proud and we want to put a smile on other mother's face!" OG3NE said.

Lyrics

(English original)

Cry no more, cry no more

Though the hallway catches light

It won't reach the corner where you strongly fight

Here in the shadow

At this place they know the game

Outside the world will turn and feel the same

There in the sunlight

But you are so much more to me

Than the one who carries all the burden

I can only hope once you fly you'll be free

You should never...

Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure

You have been going through these stages

Now it's time to turn the pages

We're gonna stand in line

And not give up but walk that road

That everybody goes

Through lights and shadows

Every time the candle glows

It lightens up the space but no one knows

Will there be a dark side?

Every battle's victory

Is a double feeling when you cannot be

Here in the spotlight

Cause you are so much more to me

Than the one who lifts us on your shoulders

I can only hope once you fly you'll be free

You should never...

Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure

You have been going through these stages

Now it's time to turn the pages

We're gonna stand in line

And not give up but walk that road

That everybody goes

Through lights and shadows

On a scale of one to ten

You got the biggest score, you're heaven sent

No one will doubt that you're an angel

So what went wrong this time?

Hurt nobody, did no crime

What's with the universe, why you?

Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure

You have been going through these stages

Now it's time to turn the pages

We're gonna stand in line

And not give up but walk that road

That everybody goes

Through lights and shadows
