I'm neutral on this song.
Maybe it will grow in me. At the moment doesn't belong to my favourites.

Don't like the beginning of the song at all but the way it builds is good.  However it does get a little bit repetitive towards the end.  Written by Jamie Cullum - he should have written our entry because no doubt we'll end up with some second rate songwriter again.

I like Roman more than the song itself. That guy has potential. German entry should've been an uptempo rock rong.
This song song is nice but weak.

I don't really get all this Roman love. Isn't he a terrible live singer? He almost completely ruins an otherwise perfectly decent, albeit admittedly repetitive song.

Having said that this one is my third favorite right now in this year of cheap uptempo numbers.

yeah it's a bit too radio friendly and mainstream, but Roman is a very nice (and sexy) singer and he does put a lot of charisma into it, and of course, it's one of the better mainstream songs too, so I like it... it doesn't have the instant appeal of "Satellite" or the masterwork of "Taken by a stranger" but Germany might really do well in my list once more. On the other hand, I fear it might get lost in eurovision

If there's any song from this year which i still find it hard to remember how it sounds, it's this one! even though i don't think at all it's bad or something like this...
