Visionary Dream

I’ll dream of tales and rhymes
In visionary dream
This precious moment of my life
Holds me excited

I will fly away
To reach the heights I’ve ever dreamed
Beneath the sun
No sense of time and space

Anticipation of your light
Holds me excited

Clouds containing lakes
I’m near the haze of pouring light
I feel embraced

Sailing through my story
Sharing my history
Sailing through my story
Sharing my history

Sailing through my story
Sharing my history
Sailing through my story
Sharing my history

This precious moment of my life
Holds me excited
The meditation of my dreams
Holds me delighted

I will fly away
To reach the ambience I’ve dreamed
Beneath the sun

Sailing through my story
Sharing my history
Sailing through my story
Sharing my history

Sailing’ through my story
Sharing’ my history

THIS SONG WAS AWESOME!!! If i think the garbage that has won instead…grrr is this why italy doesn’t goes anymore? unless is crap won’t win?! (i’m really gross sorry 😛 )
This and the bulgarian song where awesome.
I bet we are going to hear both in all the clubs this summer.

Alberto from italy


Awesome song i think it had to win! Lyrics are great so is beat rythm singer voice, i like it all 110%! Go go sopho pown these comercial pop/rap rtards


Song’s the best pop product i’ve ever heard on the mainstream tv for the last five years. IMHO the performance was crappy, except cutie Sopho ofcourse) putting those lisginka dancers on the scene doesn’t make any sense. Anyway, i didn’t excpect to hear such a bomb on the stupid eurovision. Sopho, u was really great, good luck to you!
With love from Russia) Ты лучшая, чмок ))


sopho’s vocal skills and the song are perfect! Both are too much for the competition,where the “comedy show” with no vocal and no taste to music took the second place…

I am 100% sure, if the judges of the contest where musicians and people who knew the value of the real music,Georgia would be at least in the first 5, even if not the first!!!!

From Serbia

I am from Serbia and I liked this song (together with the Hungarian) the most. It is great.


I”m from russia. I’m singer too. I never saw Sopho before, but i like her song. she’s great singer.

Max, England, UK

Someone else said she sounds like Bjork. Someone else thought like me and reckonded the tune was a bit Jame Bond like. Anyway this was by far the best song in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007. Georgia and Sopho was horribly robbed.


I’m from Scotland and would just like to say that this song is probably the finest Eurovision song that has ever been. It grabbed me the way people grab their mobiles when they ring.
It held me the way we are held to the Earth….it is that powerful.
Its notes and rhythms invite a communion. Sopho sang this song with such passion, sensitivity and intensity. The song and the singer produced a synergism.
The video to accompany the song opened up Georgia to my eyes.
Before long, I plan to visit.
