Alexander Rybak

Watch & Listen How He Performed


My hubby who lives in Norway, shares me about Alexander Rybak as a Norwegian contestant for the Eurovision contest 2009. I am interested too. So I search more about this young man and seems like he got great talent in singing. Hope his name will be on the final this coming Saturday.

Alexander Rybak, representing Norway with his Fairytale, is a true wonderkid. He's written his own song, will be starring in a movie this summer and got the record amount of votes in the national selection!

Here's is the lyrics of his song in titled "Fairytale"

Performer: Alexander Rybak
Song title: Fairytale
Song writer(s): Alexander Rybak
Song composer(s): Alexander Rybak

Years ago when I was younger
I kinda’ liked a girl I knew.
She was mine, and we were sweethearts,
That was then, but then it’s true

I’m in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts.
‘Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind;
I’m already cursed

Every day we started fighting,
Every night we fell in love.
No one else could make me sadder,
But no one else could lift me high above

I don’t know what I was doing
But suddenly we fell apart.
Nowadays I cannot find her.
But when I do we’ll get a brand new start

I’m in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts.
Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind;
I’m already cursed

She’s a fairytale
Yeah
Even though it hurts.
Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind;
I’m already cursed
