Our quote today is from the Latvian entry of 2005. The selected entry was “The War Is Not Over” by Valters and Kaža.
Valters and Kaža is a Latvian duo. The members are Valters Frīdenbergs and Kārlis Būmeisters. When they perform at the Eurovision stage, Valters was 17 and Kārlis 18. Sadly, Valters died in 2018 at the age of 30. Their song is anti-war song with a simple but catchy tone. That’s the reason that is including in our Christmas quotes.
Their song was “The War Is Not Over” and it was composed by Mārtiņš Freimanis. It qualified for its semi 10th and finished 5th at the final with 153 points.
The war is not over, everyone knows it
It’s just a reason to make us believe
That someone’s the loser, someone’s the winner
To make us believe that’s the way it should be
But I don’t wanna believe
The quote is in English as it is the rest of the song.
