Song: What They Say

The song “What They Say” is a fresh, energetic and at the same time stunning song in way there has not been a Greek entry yet. With his charisma and positive attitude he will certainly stand out of the others in Liverpool.
The self-reflecting lyrics are serious and touching:
Well you know What They Say (Ooh)
Lost souls make sure no one loses their way
Hurt ones can’t stand seeing others in pain
Oh I am both now I got too much on my plate
And I save all the others cause for me it’s too
