Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta – Hope Never Dies

A song performed by Czech singers Marta Jandová and the song’s composer Václav Noid Bárta. The entrant for the Czech Republic at Eurovision 2015, “Hope Never Dies” is the fourth song to be entered by the Czech Republic in Eurovision and is the third to be sung in English rather than in Czech. With “Hope Never Dies” the Czech Republic returns to Eurovision for the fourth time after a six-year absence from the contest following three consecutive low placings in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 editions of Eurovision (see Czech Republic in the Eurovision Song Contest). The Czech national broadcaster ČT had announced in July 2014 that they would not be sponsoring an entrant in Eurovision 2015: however in a 19 November 2014 announcement ČT stated that a Czech entrant for Eurovision 2015 would be chosen by an expert panel of jurors from a field of five specially commissioned nominees. This marked the first time that there had been no national preliminary round to select the Eurovision entrant for the Czech Republic (although the previous Czech entrant at Eurovision: the 2009 entrant “Aven Romale” by Gypsy.cz, had only vied in the national preliminary with one other song).

The selection of “Hope Never Dies” as the entrant for the Czech Republic at Eurovision 2015 was announced on 31 January 2015. The jurors reportedly were not made aware of the composer of the songs in contention until after the selection for the 2015 Eurovision entrant for the Czech Republic had been made. Juror Michael Kocáb stated: “The songs we were choosing from were quite on par with each other in my opinion. However, the winning song ‘Hope Never Dies’ was a candidate of mine too. It sports a peculiar and nice chorus, along with some nice and surprising modulation. And when I heard it, I figured that this song can really impress if done well.” Wikipedia®.

Song composer(s): Václav Noid Bárta

Wait for me don’t cross the sea of pain
Wait for me I’m lost I’ve gone astray
Ravens calling my name, their wings so dark
Soon they’ll take me away, I have their mark
They never miss their prey

There is no light to pray for
Cold and dim are the skies
Wounded lying
Running out of life
In your eyes I could see
Our hopes and our future
Now we must let go

Find me where the night turns into day
Your love as a torch shows us the way
How to be whole again

There is no light to pray for
Cold and dim are the skies
Wounded lying
Running out of life
In your eyes I could see
Our hopes and our future
Now we must let go
Must let go, must let fade away
Or we can rise and fight

For a light to live for
Fire in our hearts
Through our pain
Through all the lies
We will walk, walk reborn
Hope never dies
Never let me go.
