Korean-Australian singer and songwriter Dami Im has just announced her desire to represent her country again at Eurovision Song Contest, after finishing second in 2016 with the amazing “Sound of silence“.
While we wait for it, she delights fans as she drops a new single called “Marching on”.
Written by Dami Im herself and produced by Andy Mak, the intimate song talks about the relationship between mother and daughter.
“‘Marching on’ was inspired by the strong and resilient women in my life” explained Dami. “It is about a daughter reflecting on the character of her mother. Initially perceiving her as a person who was perfect & unafraid of anything… but then one day realizing her mother was just a woman walking through the storms of life with the same frailties as herself.”
“Marching on” is the follow up to “Kiss you anyway”, released last month.
Recently the singer collaborates with Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw on the single “Walk with me”.


Grandma told me I look just like you
Flawless, strong and fragile like a dove
I wondered will I grow to be as tall as you were to me
You were perfect, bathed me in your love

I was young, now I know sometimes you cried alone
I’ve learnt the world isn’t black and white
When you made me look away
I know you never meant to hurt me
You kept marching on

A faded picture of you at my age
A candid smile I hardly recognise
When you close your eyes at night
Do you dream of your past life
I never know what’s going through your mind

I was young, now I know sometimes you took the plunge
Those nights you prayed, you were terrified
You’d say go figure it out
Darling, no one knows the answers
You keep marching on
You keep marching on

Sometimes I wonder if I was born as your reincarnation
But I could never be like you
I’m a child without patience
Did you mean that
Did you mean that
When you told me
That I’m your dream

You keep marching on…
