“Love can be a crazy thing. We run into it, we dance, we fall… blindly. And when it’s gone, all we do is hope for it to ever come back. Until we realize, mostly when it’s too late, that like a small town boy in a big arcade, we’ve been addicted to a losing game.”

A broken heart is all that’s left
I’m still fixing all the cracks
Lost a couple of pieces when
I carried it carried it carried it home
I’m afraid of all I am
My mind feels like a foreign land
Silence ringing inside my head
Please carry me carry me carry me home
I’ve spent all of the love I saved
We were always a losing game
Small town boy in a big arcade
I got addicted to a losing game
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
How many pennies in the slot
Giving us up didn’t take a lot
I saw the end ‘for it begun
Still I carried I carried, I carry on
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
I don’t need your games, game over
Get me off this rollercoaster
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game

    • +Beppy I know and that's all right.

    • I really don't give a crap about what you like, +mrruud0101

    • +E Sastrowiardjo ha ha ha another victim of the CIA propaganda team... I bet you can't speak Dutch at all..... Ik weet zeker dat je geen enkele woordje Nederlands spreekt...zielepootje !

    • BE AWARE of mrruud0101, he is A RUSSIAN TROLL!

    • +Beppy Boring...Gay-Nude-Pathetic, so calculable. Don't like it.

  • Ik hoop echt dat je ze het zwijgen op legt. Want afkraken kunnen ze goed hier. 😘🔥

  • i dont understand how people can dislike it ..hardly possible .. in this case.

    • +SergSs Se Jealous?

    • What a beauty to watch a naked man for 3 minutes and listen to a studio recording. After all, the real voice is much weaker and loses to many competitors.

  • Booooooring

  • The fact that he is a favorite among bookmakers is not an indicator! Last year, Estonia and Norway were among the favorites. After performances in the semifinals and finals, they failed. And Cyprus at the bookmakers before the Final was the favorite, but Israel won. In 2016, Lazarev was the favorite. Total 3 place. In 2017, Italy and Bulgaria were favorites. In March and April, Portugal was 4-6 place with chances of 9/100, Italy 2.5 / 100. Outcome Portugal won, beautiful singing and voice. Here, too, favorites in the voice of Russia, Sweden and others. And the Netherlands in May at bookmakers will be on the 3-4 place, after rehearsals.

    • +Justina S S For you, funny. And I say the real facts, in May it will be so.

    • Funny you

    • Thanks for your all knowing piece of insight about what will happen in May

  • This amazing!!!!! Good luck form Israel ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Terrible production. He is under water and hid hair do not move...

    • yes, dumbass he's not actually under water do you even know how video clips work

  • Ik kan hier gewoon de hele dag naar luisteren....en dat doe ik ook.. niets aan toe te voegen. geniale compositie..spannend van begin tot eind. Vooral de rust en de opbouw.. Dit zou wereldwijd trending moeten zijn.

  • 12 Points from Israel! Beautiful song and amazing performance!

    • Same compliment back at Israel … Kobi is an éxcellent singer! :D

  • Oh. My.

  • Epic and breathtaking song! 12 points from Poland!

  • this song will win eurovision

  • Heeft Duncan niet mee gedaan aan the voice of Holland?

    • Dat heb je goed gezien Emma

  • Duncan dont needs autotune, Autotune needs him!

  • Vond dit nummer eerst helemaal niks maar damnnn wat begin ik van dit lied te houden!😍

  • my top 5: 1. Cyprus 2. Greece 3. Netherlands 4. Switzerland 5. Italy

    • P.W my top 5: 1. 🇳🇱 2.🇳🇱 3.🇳🇱 4.🇳🇱 5.🇳🇱

  • Very good


  • It is soooo beautiful that I want to cry . My vote is for you . Greetings from Turkey

  • Very common text, deja vu. It's not bad but can't see what is so special about it, unfortunately. Naked butt? Does it work the same way as big boobs?

  • It's the most touched song I've ever heard in the Eurovision Song Contest. I think 'Arcade' deserves for the winning. Duncan's voice sounds like angelic voice. He's probably angel, not human ;) Good luck Duncan, good luck Netherlands! 12 points from Poland with love ❤

    • Very nice opinion!! Love from the Netherlands

  • Just took a great nap...

  • That Duncan also sings a part in Falsetto doesn't mean the song sounds the same as *Hymn for the weekend*, key-melody and lyrics wise totally different. If you want to say it sounds similair as a song at least name a song that actually sounds similair (I know they can be found as well lmao, but this whole "it sounds like Hymn for the weekend is nonsense. If you say that you have absolutely no knowledge about music and the way it is structured, made etc.)

  • we have the winner already

  • 12 points from panama He is the winner of Eurovision 2019

  • Wow.

  • I’m Armenian and if Armenia doesn’t win I really honestly want The Netherlands to win ♥️♥️♥️

    • Sweet! … Lots of luck to you guys in Armenia too! :DDD

  • I'm from Nederlands I'm so happy 🇳🇱🇳🇱

  • The winner! Love from Sweden.

    • 12 points from sweden! Thanks! Love from the Netherlands

  • Not bad...sorry, but this no winner. Lazarev - Scream the best!

    • Александр Белый No screaming for me. Go Duncan!

    • He is screaming too much!!

  • I think will win Eurovision 2019 Netherlands or Italy. 2 good songs. Good luck!!

  • He's my winner no matter what happens at Tel Aviv! Good luck from Greece! 🇳🇱🇬🇷

    • Good luck to Greece too! <3 <3

    • I thinks so too! Thanks from the Netherlands

  • 12 points from Kazakhstan go to... they go to the Netherlands

  • The costume budget for the entry this year must have been overwhelming 😧

    • Hahahahahaha, no doubt, +D C

    • By the time he would have finished he’d be looking like a shrivelled shrimp 😂😂😂

    • Poor guy had to lay in the water for 7 hours in a row … :O

    • For real though this is one of my favourite songs this year along with Belarus, Romania, Malta and Cyprus😂❤️

  • This is amazing ! Has to win Eurovision! Did also a cover of this song btw

  • 3,2 mio Spotify

    • Ik wil de illusie niet breken, Ton, maar Italië heeft ruim 30M streams op Spotify :O

  • top 3: Netherlands 🇳🇱 -Arcade Malta 🇲🇹 -Chameleon Italy 🇮🇹 -Soldi

  • Gorgeous

  • It is great song... But you hear song of Lazarev? It's beautiful!!! I don't know. I.. I want vote and for Lazarev, and for Duncan

    • I heard the song of Lazarev, but it's not really my taste. Wishing the guy good luck though. ;)

  • Damn.... why ESC2019 songs are so good??? Every song is a hit)) You even don't know to whom choose((

    • Its easy! Choose The Netherlands!

    • +C R I agree)) great song))

    • Naira Movsisyan I suggest..... The Netherlands 😉

  • Sounds like every Coldplay song ever. The guy even sounds like Chris Martin.

    • ... en dat is een foto van Emilia Clarke, XD

    • He , +C R Dit zijn precies de boze reacties die ze hebben willen … getrol joh ;)

    • Who Told You That? Sounds fine by me!

  • I broke the replay button 😂😅❣

  • Schitterend, inderdaad te goed voor het songfestival!

  • I love that song! ❤

  • This may be the best song this year by many parameters, but it's not going to win, obviously. This song is in the range of Beautiful mess, Bones, Not Alone and many other masterpieces but none of them won...

    • +dzeno rzv woops my mistake! Reading to fast i guess 😝

    • Rachel 36 I am speaking about the QUALITY of the song

    • And its totally different then bones etc..

    • C R I hope the winning parameters change

    • dzeno rzv According to parameters this is obviously the most moving entry this year. It even has been covered European wide. So maybe this year is changing the ‘obviously’.

  • Maybe 14th

  • It's not for Eurovision sorry but no but it's still good

    • yes it is there's no such thing as 'for eurovision' always the same songs = boring

  • Sergey Lazarev has no equal, On behalf of Russia

    • Ws Znaus Your bet is a losing game.

    • +C R Let me remind you that Duncan will also be abroad and I bet that Lazarev will be better.

    • +Adrianus Sorry, but with what such assumptions? And from where you know that Lazarev can not sing with emotions. I'll tell you this, Sergey Lazarev cult artist. Soon you will see for yourself.

    • Ws Znaus Perhaps Sergey has no equal in Russia. Beyond the borders he has no chance against Duncan.

    • Well he certainly has no equal in Duncan Laurence. Because Duncan Laurence can sing with much more emotions than Sergey Lazarev.

  • Привет из РОССИИ Hello from Russia

    • Ws Znaus 👍

    • +C R Everything's fine, how are you?

    • Ws Znaus Hello Russia! How are you? Grtz from the Netherlands.

    • +Carolien Lecoq Hello

    • Hello from the Netherlands!!

  • 12 points from Armenia🇦🇲🇳🇱💜

  • For me, this is the real deal.

  • Winner!

  • Wauw wat een prachtig nummer !! We gaan echt winnen kan niet anders. Ben die hard coldplay fan. Zij hadden dit nummer kunnen maken! Duncan mijn complimenten kan niet wachten tot het songfestival! Hou het hoofde koel!!!

  • He is cheating, this song is to good !!!!!! 😱😱 # Amsterdam2020

  • Cancel the Eurovision this year, no competition needed - we have the winner.

    • The only reason to cancel the competition is Palaistine. Great song, thank you Netherlands 👏👏

  • this is definitely going to win and i'm so happy!! AMSTERDAM 2020 🇳🇱

  • Ok I get the hype now and why everyone's talking about this song. Simply beautiful

    • TheBirdjam I never react, but now I just had to say I love your reaction. Thank you!

  • Winner

  • Lindo; magnifico, fantástico, maravilhoso, incrível, genial, fabuloso, esplendido, brutal, supremo, ótimo, excelente, top, luminoso, belissimo, soberbo . Todos os adjetivos são poucos para qualificar esta canção. 12 pontos de Portugal

  • Het zou Duncan heel erg gegund zijn om voor ons het Songfestival te winnen. Want....Dit is een supergoed nummer.

  • I'm not much into casted stars but the song is beautiful. Though I've quite liked the other dutch entries over the last years as well. Veel geluk.

  • The winner👏👏

  • gg

  • See u at amsterdam ggs netherlands from cyprus✌🙌🏻🔥

    • I’m still gutted Cyprus did not win last year, it was the best!

  • Wow😍 Good luck from Spain🇪🇸

    • Lots of luck and love back to Miki and Spain too! Your song makes me happy!😍

  • Nice butt🤣🤣

    • Karl cachia but what.....? Huh? 🤔🤨

    • Karl cachia But?

    • And what is your opinion of the song?

  • Worst song wtf

    • you're just angry it's doing better than your country's crappy song

    • Nova ESC bedoelt waarschijnlijk dat het een eenheidsworst is. Nou, het zal me echt een worst weze....

    • Conchita Worst?

    • +Vlam Pyra Ja nou je het zegt!!! haha

    • @Carolien Lecoq Jawel hoor, ‘t is een worstig tiepje, zieje zo. Die handjes voor heur mondje, die lust er wel pap van. 😆👍🏻

  • Wauw ik krijg echt kippenvel 😍

  • I hope this will be the version at the eurovision. The acoustic is good but this one is outstanding

    • Even when he wants to bring the acoustic version, he's not allowed. This is the version he send in,. this is the version he has to play.

    • Its gonna be stunning on stage i think!

    • this version will be used on stage dont worry

  • Omg! Amazing voice ! 😍😶 Greetings from 🇵🇱

  • Woow Lekker Nummer!!

  • Repeat for 4mill views 🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♂️🇳🇱

  • Boring af. HATRID MUN SIGRA!

    • shinri tyan TITLE OF YOUR SEX TAPE

    • +Lucia79ification 🤣👍

    • Ton van Velzen 😂😂😂

    • +Lucia79ification Nice way to give a comment😉 or he is to busy with that performance that other things are boring.....

    • Boring? Are you talking about your sexual performances in the bedroom? 😘

  • Omg, this song is so beautiful!♥️♥️ Good luck The Netherlands! Much love from Armenia!🇦🇲🇳🇱

  • Duncan wrotes this song a few years ago cause a friend of him died. ForzaNetherlands

  • Am I the only one who see the obvious similarity with Coldplay’s music (especially “Hymn for the Weekend”) Yeah, it is beautiful song,melodic, with good singing, but it sounds not new, seriously. Whatever, good luck!!!

    • well tbh everything has already been done in music so you could compare every entry this year with earlier made music (exept for Australia I guess lmao) And this is still one of the more original songs compared to cyprus, switzerland and malta wich are also placed high in the odds. So I still think compared to those it could win. We'll see ;)

    • That's the thing with popmusic these days: it's all been done before.

    • +Elina Oganezova your argument that this is not something new can be applied to practically every entry at the Eurovision. Name me one song that isn't reflecting somehow something that has been done before. Even for Iceland or Portugal you can find somewhere in the musical history some kind of equivalent that reflects it. Point is if a song is bringing something extra to the festival that distinguishes it from the others. Each country tries to reach that in a different way. Some countries make a big show of the staging to reach that, other countries try to hit the audience straight into their hearts with the emotions the singer puts in the voice and the song. Some people vote, because they like a good show, other people vote because they like to get touched in their souls. Luckily every year there is a different winner, for a different reason. The people here that like this song, are very clear in the reason why they like it. They obviously don't mind that it is reminding them of something they have heard before.

    • J D yeah, I guess, you’re right

    • Since when is there anything new? , dont know what age you 've got but when your older of age than you should realise that everthing is already been done in the musicstream history. , each era music is wrapped into another package to create a different experience , but new?? noop .

  • With MARUV retreating, there is no serious competition left to this one.

  • 6,1K dislikes? people are deaf.

    • Everyone is deaf you say!! Only not you

    • Or they don't understand what pure music is all about. Emotions. They go for weird acts.😉

    • Wendytje well, some people just have different taste in music, it’s impossible for everyone to like it :/

  • This year the one song reminds the other ,this is something between Greece and Coldplay,nice song

    • Dark phoenixxx I think there's really something wrong with your ears, because hym for the weekend doesn't actually sound the same as this

  • Amazing.

  • He sings well. Music is ok. But Europe wants Conan Osiris.

    • +Mitchel van Eijk Let your soul to be 'conannized'. 😂

    • Duhhh speak for yourself dude ..

    • Europe wants Conan? Guess I am not from Europe then

    • no not really....it's too artistic for Europe...well done though! And 6th place for Portugal is still cool.. ;-)

  • Douze points

  • 10 points from Armenia🇦🇲🇦🇲🇦🇲🇵🇾🇵🇾🇵🇾

  • First time: so boring! Second time: love his voice! Third time: LOVE THIS SONG!

    • And now your addicted,,

    • Respect for your honesty. That is the way how to react.

  • Beautiful voice!!! Love from Greece!

  • Dusss... ik heb eens even een gekeken naar de likes van andere, en Nederland heeft er het meest🥰

  • 👏👏👏👏👏😢😢😢😢😢

  • I don't like.

  • I think 1st place will be between Holland, Portugal and North Macedonia or Greece.

  • I wish this iceland,italy and greece do well on the stage of eurovision

  • So pure and full of emotions... that's all a good song needs! Best wishes and 12 points from Germany 🇩🇪

  • Winner
