For the opening of the Eurovision Song 2013 Contest in Malmö, Sweden on May 18th Benny Andersson composer a new Eurovision anthem, with lyrics by Björn Ulvaeus, in collaboration with Swedish DJ an producer Avicii. ‘We Write The Story’ was written to tie in with this year’s Eurovision slogan We Are One, and even included the slogan at the end.

The song has all the hallmarks of a Benny composition. Listeners may even hear hints o the more anthemic moments of some later ABBA songs. But that’s to be expected, thy wer composed by the same man, after all.

‘We Write The Story’ was released exclusively in iTunes on the morning of the Grand Final, credited to Avicii & B & B And Choir.

Justice and peace and liberty
We write the story
We can fulfil the legacy
We write the song
Welcome a new enlightenment
We write the story
We can recast and reinvent
We write the song

We are humans
Born free and equal
On this one earth lies our future
Reason and conscience
May they move the world one day

Justice and peace and liberty
We write the story
We can fulfil the legacy
We write the song

True to the ones who live their life
We write the story
We have a choice to reunite
We write the song

Welcome a new enlightenment
Welcome the glory
We can recast then reinvent
We can be strong
We have a choice in everything
We write the story
We have a voice and words to sing
We write the song

We are humans
Born free and equal
On this one earth lies our future
We are keepers
Reason and conscience
May they rule the world one day

Justice and peace and liberty
We write the story
We can fulfil the legacy
We write the song

True to the ones who live their life
We write the story
We have a torch to reunite
We write the song

Welcome a new enlightenment
Welcome the glory
We can recast and reinvent
We can restore
We have a choice in everything
We write the story
We have a voice and words to sing
We write the song

Free and equal
Reason and conscience
We are humans
We are one
