  • Softengine was formed in the summer of 2011 in the city of Seinäjoki. After two years of practicing, songwriting, and preparing, Softengine was officially born with members Topi Latukka, Ossi Mäkelä, Eero Keskinen, Henri Oskár, and Tuomo Alarinta.

    After signing a contract with Sony Music Finland at the start of 2014, Softengine decided to try their luck at “Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) 2014” with the song “Something Better.”


  • Softengine submitted their song “Something Better” to Finnish broadcaster YLE for consideration in the selection show “Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) 2014.” Soon, it was announced that Softengine and their entry were among the semi-finalists.

    In the first semi-final of UMK 2014, Softengine earned the top points from the jury, directly qualifying for the final. At the final, Softengine once again received the top votes from the jury, and also, gained the top televote points as well, securing their victory as Finland’s representative for Eurovision 2014.

    Even human bound, people rolling dice.

    Image on the ground, such a novel life, he thought,

    while knowing nothing at all.

    Every option noted or tendency made,

    they will carry on until the perfect date, she said,

    while knowing nothing at all.

     

    All the rules well known, they mean nothing to me.

    Everything I’m used to seems to be

    fine misshapen made up fantasy,

    should let go, should let go!

     

    But we found something better,

    plain answer however,

    for I’ll not surrender.

    We found something better.

     

    Vis-à-vis estranged and we got close.

    Trust full of lies, sure how it goes, they told,

    while knowing nothing at all.

    Talking loud ’bout future in our hands.

    Exchanging dreams and how they’ll last, no no,

    still knowing nothing at all.

    But we found something better.

    plain answer however,

    for I’ll not surrender.

    We found something better.

     

    All these words reflected back to me.

    All these words, I’m buying, why?

    All these words, the lives grand mystery.

    All these words a sweet white lie!

    All these words she meant to say to me.

    All these words against my faith.

    All these words, before she passed away.

    All these words, will never never never change.

     

    We found something better.

    plain answer however,

    for I’ll not surrender.

    We found something better.

    We found!

    We found!

    We found!

    We found, we found, we found, we found! We found!
