Run & Hide was the German entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 in Kiev performed by Gracia.

In the final, the song was performed seventeenth on the night, following Ukraine and preceding Croatia. At the close of voting, it finished in last place with only 4 points.

The song's poor placing was one of the reasons for a debate over the merits of the "Big Four", as these four countries finished the Contest in the bottom four places - but still had automatic entry to the next final.

Lyrics

You’d better run and hide

Twenty five dollars wasted on you
Got you out of trouble, but you’ll soon
Come by for another try

You’re a friend of mine and I know
Only crooked places you can go
Your eyes conveyed too many lies

You’d better run and hide
Too many girls have cried
Oh, no, no, no, why
Do I feel sorry?

You’d better run and hide
Too many dreams have died
Oh, no, no, no, why
Do I still worry?


You’d better run and…
You’d better run and hide

Twenty-five reasons to leave you
But I’m still feeling kinda blue inside
Watching our worlds collide

Baby, gotta see you as you are
Wipe the rest of yearning out of my heart
And try to say that last goodbye
Yeah, yeah, yeah…

You’d better run and hide
Too many girls have cried
Oh, no, no, no, why
Do I feel sorry?

You’d better run and hide
Too many dreams have died
Oh, no, no, no, why
Do I still worry?

Yeah, yeah…
No, no, no, no
I still worry

You’d better run and hide, hide
You’d better run and hide
You’d better run and hide

Trivia

  • Due to the manipulation of the song's chart position, co-writer David Brandes (who also wrote the Swiss entry Cool Vibes) was barred from attending the 2005 contest and the song itself was banned from the German charts.
