History
Bosnia and Herzegovina debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993 after coming second in the qualification round “Kvalifikacija za Millstreet”, and has taken part every year since except 1998 and 2000, when low average scores forced Bosnia and Herzegovina to skip the contest.
Prior to 1993, Bosnia and Herzegovina participated in the Eurovision Song Contest as part of Yugoslavia.
Bosnia and Herzegovina’s best result was in 2006, when Hari Mata Hari came 3rd with the song “Lejla” (second in the semi-final). Since 2004, it has reached the final every year (together with Greece, Russia, Romania and Ukraine) and therefore has never been eliminated in the semi-final.

1993


Bosnia and Herzegovina entered the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 1993. The war-torn country was represented by Fazla with the song “Sva bol svijeta”.RTVBiH decided to hold a national final to select the first entry from an independent Bosnia and Herzegovina. BH Eurosong 1993 was held in the RTVBiH TV studios in Sarajevo on 28 February, hosted by Ismeta Krvavac, who had previously represented Bosnia and Herzegovina at the 1976, representing Yugoslavia, as the lead singer of the group Ambasadori.
11 songs competed to be the first entry for the independent country, however the group Nina, who competed with “Zapleši”, were unable to get to the studio, and so a video-clip of their song was presented instead. Only the winner of the contest was announced, with an expert jury selecting the winner.
The winner was Fazla with the song “Sva bol svijeta”. Alma Čardžić was rumoured to have come second with “Svi na ulice”, however this was never confirmed.
The lyrics of “Sva bol svijeta” (All the pain in the world) describe the Bosnian War occurring at that time in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which gripped the entire country at the time.
The Kvalifikacija za Millstreet (Qualification for Millstreet) contest was held in Ljubljana, Slovenia on 3 April at the TV studios of Slovene broadcaster Radiotelevizija Slovenija (RTV SLO). Seven countries in total competed, including Bosnia and Herzegovina, for a place in the final on 15 May 1993. Fazla performed first, preceding Croatia. The band received 52 points, placing 2nd, qualifying to the Eurovision Song Contest final alongside Slovenia and Croatia.
Fazla performed 18th at the Eurovision Song Contest 1993 in Millstreet, Ireland, following Finland and preceding the United Kingdom. The group received 27 points, receiving the maximum 12 points from Turkey, placing 16th of the 25 competing countries.
Warm applause rang throughout the hall during the voting when the Bosnian votes were announced in the midst of the war in the country.
Lyrics

I can’t take the stars down from the sky
I can’t find the way, the way to universe
But I can send you this song
So you’ll know I’m alive, my love

Tonight when tears on my face freeze up
I won’t let the fear take me over
I still have the strength to win alone
If we were together, it’d be easier

All the pain in the world tonight is in Bosnia
I’m staying to defy the fear
I’m not afraid to stand in front of the wall
I can sing, I can win

Tonight when tears on my face freeze up
I won’t let the fear take me over
Who will be the guard instead of me?
So that another evil doesn’t occur

All the pain in the world tonight is in Bosnia
I’m staying to defy the fear
I’m not afraid to stand in front of the wall
I can sing, I can win

All the pain in the world tonight is in Bosnia
I’m staying to defy the fear
I’m not afraid to stand in front of the wall
I can sing, I can win

lyrics

You’re the only one who can
Lighten up this darkness I am feeling
With you, I am like a happy child
Although I don’t look like it

Years, one by one
Like a train and a station
Only we’re at the last one

Stay beside me
You are all my hope
You are all my strength
All my happiness and stay because of that
My love

In your eyes, there’s a blue river
Through which hatred will never flow
Your heart knows the sweet words
Said when one’s in love

Years, step by step
And all the pain will vanish
Except this song, me and you

Stay beside me
You are all my hope
You are all my strength
All my happiness and stay because of that
My love

1995

lyrics

You have frozen up the sea, the crazy waves
And hidden the pores, the first sweetest pores from me

Where are you blue-eyed, my life’s miserable
Does someone love your heart away from me
I still wear the old jumper you’ve knitted for me
And forever split my heart

When streets are quiet and tramways asleep
And when the thick fog is swallowing me
Only half the heart is pounding, half’s with you
When we give life everything, it eats us alive

The 21st century is coming, my dear
And you’re nowhere to be found
The 21st century is coming, my dear
And happiness is nowhere to be found
And happiness is nowhere to be found

The breakfast is in bed, but love is outside it
Farewell with you is most horrific
Your light’s still on, like an everlasting lighthouse
Why was I born, when I lose everything I own

When you light up the stars, quietness sings
Do you know how much I miss you
My life is worth nothing
It’s decaying, like the old blue jeans

The 21st century is coming, my dear
And you’re nowhere to be found
The 21st century is coming, my dear
And happiness is nowhere to be found
And happiness is nowhere to be found

1996

lyrics

I’d give it all, everything in the world
To have you beside me
To have your arms around me
My love

To have you wake me up in the morning
With your warm lips.
To have your hands touch mine
Stealing me away from dreams

The night is long when I’m without you
And every day, as if I’m dying
But I know I love you
And will wait hundred years

I can’t be without you, I know
I’m living for only one day
For only one night, made of dreams
Only for our love, I live

I can’t be without you, I know
I’m living for only one day
For only one night, made of dreams
Only for our love, I live

lyrics

Calm me down with pictures from good movies
Brave me with a line from good songs
I can’t see, my eye’s devoid of shine
I only hear the two words, which mean it’s over

Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye

Look for me in your memories
Find me in the dawn of a new day
But please don’t sigh falsely
Don’t say the two words, which mean it’s over

Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye

I can’t see, my eye’s devoid of shine
I only hear the two words, which mean it’s over

Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, goodbye love
Goodbye

lyrics

I believe in God and God’s decree
And I believe that nothing is an illusion
Everything is so true, so real
I believe in it, I believe in it

No, nothing occured that didn’t have to
There isn’t a face that wasn’t wrinkled
There isn’t a rock that won’t become ashes
No shoulder that won’t feel fear

What is it that you want?
You are the traveller

We are, you are, they are, they are
We are, you are the travellers
We have, you have, they have, they have
We have, you have the house, the house

Arrival is a dream, cover of a book
But parting is a dream’s evil sister
What are we, as travellers without a place?
We’ll never know where this road leads us

What are we –
What are we, you and me
If not travellers without a place?

Tell me are you sorry, do you feel remorse
IIf you say yes, you’ll be giving up on yourself
Tell me are you sorry, do you feel remorse
If you say yes, it’ll be a proof of choice

What is it that you want?
You are the traveller

We are, you are, they are, they are
We are, you are the travellers
We have, you have, they have, they have
We have, you have the house, the house

We are, you are, they are, they are
We are, you are the travellers
We have, you have, they have, they have
We have, you have the house, the house

lyrics

Come on

Even if the sun came out promptly at half past two
Even if from a clear sky thunderbolt struck me
You wouln’t care, you wouldn’t wink
Much less when I call you, turn you head

Even if the snow fell now on the tree blooms and fruits
Even if I told you in your face what I want to
You woudn’t care, you wouldn’t wink
Much less for my pleasure, at least smile

Hano, come on, don’t your eyes see?
Doesn’t your soul hear when I say I love you?
Hano, come on, don’t your eyes see?
Doesn’t your soul hear when I say I love you?

A thousand times I’ve tried to walk away
I’m losin’ my mind about you – what can I say?
You keep telling me to let you go, that makes me wanna cry
‘Cause God knows I love you so – so much, I’m gonna die

Hano, come, come on, tell me what is going on
Tell me, would it be all right for me to be your light?
Hano, come, come on, tell me what is going on
Tell me, would it be all right for me to be your…?

Hano, come on, don’t your eyes see?
Doesn’t your soul hear when I say I love you?
Hano, come on, don’t your eyes see?
Doesn’t your soul hear when I say I love you?

lyrics

Good morning, my heart is smiling
You I don’t want, I only sin with you
Comforting words are not necessary
I don’t love you anymore, move away from me

I have that thing called the heart
Because of you it’s now looking for tears

On a pillow for two made of illusions
The thoughts are far, miles away
Love is on a journey to shatter someone else’s dreams

On a pillow for two, I’m alone now
Steps are moving far, far away
Love is on a journey to shatter someone else’s dream
I don’t know know who he is, but I’ll wait for him

(Wala pa pa pa pa… wala pa pa pa…)
(Wala pa pa pa pa… wala parapa para pa…)

Welcome, sister, the club is open, sign in
Take these members, be prepared for crying
I am sad no more, you took away my lonesome blues
I was blind and stupid when I spent my dreams on him
(Yeah, yeah)

And if I ever, if I ever meet him (No, no)
No, I will never, I will never want him (Yeah, yeah)

Fairytales about love – this lady knows so well
There’s no sound of music in the broken bell, yeah
If someone doesn’t care about you, don’t be sad and blue

Fairytales about love – this lady learnt so well
There’s no sound of music in the broken bell, yeah
If someone doesn’t care about you, just don’t waste your time
Never, never free – you’d better run away
(Parapa para pa…)

lyrics

The day departs
You slowly follow it, alone
‘Cause you will lose the game
This game I have known for long

(Down by the river where nobody goes)

Don’t worry, don’t worry about me
Lies can’t hurt me
Say, say what it feels like
When everything is lost

You tell everyone that you don’t suffer
That you don’t love me, baby
Now, fine, show me
That you can do without me

Because only two words
I have to tell you today
Bye, bye, at least for the end

Don’t worry, don’t worry about me
Lies can’t hurt me
Say, say what it feels like
When everything is lost

Don’t worry, don’t worry about me
Lies can’t hurt me
Say, say what it feels like
When everything is lost

I couldn’t stand the lie
Now you are doomed to cry
Bye, bye, don’t lie, ah, ah

Could it be, could it be
Is it true?
I was fool that could die for you
Tell me, tell me
Can’t you see
You’d never die for me?

Could it be, could it be
Is it true?
I was fool that could die for you
Tell me, tell me
Can’t you see
You’d never die for me?

Could it be, could it be
Is it true?
I was fool that could die for you
Tell me, tell me
Can’t you see
You’d never die for me?

Tell me, tell me
Can’t you see
You’d never die for me?

lyrics

Call me

I used to think that we could never make it
That million hearts could never beat as one
But now, miracle is not so hard to find

There were times when I really doubted
If, after stormy weather, always comes the sun
But now, I can see the world from a different side, yeah

Singer after singer, remembered
Different flags, but nations gathered
From the north to the south
All standing side by side

There was laughter, and there was crying
But after all, I’m not denying
I’m so happy to be here, ’cause it’s the time of my life

Call me
Everytime you’re feeling lonely
Our greatest wish is one and only
Sing with me, it’s how it should be
For the rest of our lives

So won’t you call me?
We’ll reach the very top and nothing less
United in the song, that’s all it takes
Fifty candles on the fourty cakes
For the many years of happiness

There were times when I really doubted
If, after stormy weather, always comes the sun
But now, I can see the world from a different side, yeah

There was laughter, and there was crying
But after all, I’m not denying
I’m so happy to be here, ’cause it’s the time of my life

Call me
Everytime you’re feeling lonely
Our greatest wish is one and only
Sing with me, it’s how it should be
For the rest of our lives

So won’t you call me?
We’ll reach the very top and nothing less
United in the song, that’s all it takes
Fifty candles on the fourty cakes
For the many years of happiness

There was laughter, and there was crying
But after all, I’m not denying
I’m so happy to be here, ’cause it’s the time of my life

Call me, call me
We’ll reach the very top and nothing less
United in the song, that’s all it takes
Fifty candles on the fourty cakes
For the many years of happiness

United in the song, that’s all it takes
Fifty candles on the fourty cakes
For the many years of happiness
Of happiness
Call me

lyrics

Down a field, a scent of wind
And pain follows me like a shadow
Are you sighing after me somewhere?
Where are you hidden from me?

Place rosemary in your hair
And a flower from an old fountain
Layla, could you love another?

If they propose to you tomorrow
Know that I won’t be there
Sorrows are easily forgiven
But only love never is

Could you love another?

Dove, my dove
Bring her tears instead of a song
I’m leaving, as if guilty
For loving who I’m not allowed

Dove, my dove
Bring her tears instead of a song
I’m leaving, as if guilty
For loving you who I’m not allowed

For loving you, Lejla
(Dove, my dove)

lyrics

Down a river without a name, like a wave
May my pain begin its journey to find you
Rose of all winds
Only I know the paths over water

Day by day and night by night
I build my pain
Like a bridge on a river, after you
Who still loves you like I do
Knows your soul, just the way I do?

Unfaithful sorrow, my pain
How do I return you?
To embrace you, like it’s the first time
Cover with gold rivers of tears for you

Unfaithful sorrow, eh, if I only could
I would still go anywhere with you
May this pain bind to my soul for dying for you

Unfaithful sorrow, my pain
How do I return you?
To embrace you, like it’s the first time
Cover with gold rivers of tears for you

Unfaithful sorrow, (my pain)
I would still go anywhere with you
May this pain bind to my soul for dying for you
(Unfaithful sorrow, unfaithful sorrow)

(Don’t come down from the balcony)

(Don’t make noise with your sandals)
(Don’t pretend to be a lady)

(Don’t come down from the balcony)
(Laka told me personally)
(Don’t come down from the balcony)
(Until your love is strong)

I tricked both fauna and flora
With my favorite prank
That life did not begin in the sea
But of love
Love, love
Of love

How many days did we spend
Lying down, eating bananas
And then we fell onto the lower branches
Without love
Love, love
Without love

I’ll try to kiss you and you can act foolish
I’ll try to kiss you and you can act foolish
I’ll try to wake you up and you can pretend you’re awake

(Don’t come down from the balcony)
(Laka the singer told me)
(Don’t make noise with your sandals)
(Don’t pretend to be a lady)

(Don’t come down from the balcony)
(Laka told me personally)
(Don’t come down from the balcony)
(Until your love is strong)

I’ll try to kiss you and you can act foolish
I’ll try to kiss you and you can act foolish
I’ll try to wake you up and you can pretend you’re awake

I’ll try to kiss you and you can act foolish
(Don’t come down from the balcony)
(Laka the singer told me)
I’ll try to kiss you and you can act foolish
(Don’t make noise with your sandals)
(Don’t pretend to be a lady)
I’ll try to wake you up and you can pretend you’re awake

lyrics

I asked some people
In the neighbourhood, where my soul resides
A secret from me
They say you are hiding, dear

I asked that they return to me
That time, the old hours, the spring
That love is in the air
They say

Give birth to me at dawn in May
Bathe me in the clear water
I guard one world, when all others leave
I guard you as long as I’m alive

Steal a bit of sun for us
There’s no tomorrow, there’s no today
It all becomes easy as the song finds the heart

Give birth to me at dawn in May
Bathe me in the clear water
I guard one world, when all others leave
I guard you as long as I’m alive

Give birth to me at dawn in May
Bathe me in the clear water
I guard one world, when all others leave
I guard you as long as I’m alive

lyrics

Say just one more word
And you will make it end
And I will leave this place
Only anger will remain
And it doesn’t seem to me
We’re each other’s better side
These days

This is the time to melt the ice
Off our lips and off our hearts
Thunder and lightning holding hands
Let’s overcome the past

The drought is all around
But if we start breathing together
We can bring the rain down
For a dream, for a brand new day
To wash away our sins
And carry them away

This is the time to melt the ice
Off our lips and off our hearts
Thunder and lightning holding hands
Let’s overcome the past
We have to do it fast

This is the time (to melt the ice)
(Off our lips and off our hearts) Off our hearts
(Thunder and lightning holding hands)
Thunder and lightning
(Let’s overcome the past)
(We have to do it fast)

In this crazy world
In this crazy world
Just you and I

Say just one more word
And everything will end, everyone will leave

lyrics

Oh… (Oh…)

One to a hundred, multiplied by you
It all looks great, it all looks cool
Healthy children go to school
My daughter’s in love, my son loves too

Oh, on the surface, oh, in the distance
It’s all the same
Oh, in the darkness, oh, don’t you notice
What a different game

If you take this life from me today
Tear it up and bury me away

You’ll just find two, three songs of mine
Hundred worries of mine
Your love, your love in rewind
You’ll just find two, three songs of mine
Hundred worries of mine
And all your love in rewind

Sito, oh…
Sito, oh…
Sito, oh…
Sito, oh…

One to a hundred, multiplied by two
It’s less about me, it’s less about you
We keep on running from certainty
But don’t know where to run from reality

If you take this life from me today
Tear it up and bury me away

You’ll just find two, three songs of mine
Hundred worries of mine
Your love, your love in rewind
You’ll just find two, three songs of mine
Hundred worries of mine
And all your love, your love

lyrics

I know your moves, you rush like without your head
Where, I don’t ask, because if I ask, you stay silent
And it’s ever harder to part with you and your body
And I know you less and less, that’s not what I wanted

It’s as if I’m stealing you away from everybody just for me
May they leave you, may they not touch you
I poisin blood and soul most when I wound you
And I still hate it all while I defend myself in front of you

Don’t ruin my day, it’s never been harder for me
You’ve never lived alone in a spider’s web
Like I have
Life connects me to you
Will it ever get easier or only harder
Eh….

When you easily put our whole life in a gamble
As if we never said: “Till death do us part”

Don’t ruin my day, it’s never been harder for me
You’ve never lived alone in a spider’s web
Like I have
Like I have

I know your moves
