Biography

Zoe Straub’s talent for music and love of chanson run in her family: the 19-years old Viennese artist is the daughter of Papermoon’s founder Christof Straub. Since 2013, Zoe has been active as a singer and songwriter, her songs being the product of musical cooperation with her father. Alongside music, Zoe has been active as a moderator and actress from a young age. Zoe is a European with her heart and soul.

The blend of European cultures, languages and regional musical traditions is meant to obliterate borderlines and stimulate the European idea. Her earliest memory of the Song Contest: “I guess I was some five years old and my parents were watching the Song Contest in their bedroom. I should have been fast asleep, but I eavesdropped at the door.”

Lyrics:

French

Et quand tu chantes, oui moi je chante aussi
Quand tu t’élances, je suis
Et quand tu voles, oui moi je vole aussi
Si tu t’élances, j’te suis

Dans un pays loin d’ici
À la recherche du paradis
Dans un pays loin d’ici
On chante, on chante
Dans un pays loin d’ici
À la recherche du paradis
Dans un pays loin d’ici
On chante

Et quand la route nous semble sans issue
Sans aucun doute, j’te suis
Sans aucun doute, même si on s’ra perdu
Sans aucun doute, j’te suis

Dans un pays loin d’ici
À la recherche du paradis
Dans un pays loin d’ici
On chante, on chante
Dans un pays loin d’ici
À la recherche du paradis
Dans un pays loin d’ici
On chante, on chante

On chante et on danse et on rit, on s’élance, réuni, enivré, dans l’imprudence

Dans un pays loin d’ici
À la recherche du paradis
Dans un pays loin d’ici
On chante, on chante
Dans un pays loin d’ici
À la recherche du paradis
Dans un pays loin d’ici
On chante, on chante
Dans un pays loin d’ici
À la recherche du paradis
Dans un pays loin d’ici
On chante, on chante

On chante, on chante, on danse, on danse
Dans un pays
On chante, on chante, on danse, on danse
Loin d’ici

French

When you sing
I will sing along
When you go for it
I follow

And when you fly
Yes I will fly with you
When you go for it
I follow

In a land, far from here
Searching for the paradise
In an land far from here
They’re singing
x2

Even if the road seams to be a dead end
If you go for it
I follow

Without any doubt
Even if we would be lost
Without any doubt
I’d follow you

In a land, far from here
Searching for the paradise
In an land far from here
They’re singing
x2

They sing and they dance
And they laugh, they go for it, all together, tipsy, into carelessness

In a land, far from here
Searching for the paradise
In an land far from here
They’re singing
x2
