Maiú Levi Lawlor

Maiú hails from Greystones, a coastal village in County Wicklow, known as the ‘Garden of Ireland’. It is located on the east coast of Ireland, flanked by beautiful beaches and the magnificent Wicklow Mountains.

The talented young singer also enjoys youth theatre, basketball and playing the piano (which he took up as a hobby at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic).

During the grand final of Junior Eurovision Éire, Maiú had to perform two cover songs in front of a distinguished panel of judges: Eurovision winner Linda Martin, radio presenter Niamh Ní Chróinín, and Fiachna Ó Braonáin of the band Hothouse Flowers.

No stranger to the pressure of singing live, Maiú has performed at the London Palladium for the Britain's Got Talent judges and appeared on RTE’s Late Late Toy Show at the age of 10.

Lyrics of Saor (Disappear)

Stop na lámha ar an gclog D’eirigh mo shaol
Mo shaol an-bheag
Éist leis an gclog
Le breis agus bliain Sheas an t-am go docht Gan chairde nó scoil Aon áit le dhul
Aon áit le dhul
Seasaigí
Cuma faoi Rialachaí
C'est la vie
Níl muid inár suí Na múinteoirí Zoom TV
Anseo anseo damhsa ar an mbord

Is cuma liom céard
a cheapann tu fúm anois Cloisim mo chara
Ag briseadh ón nós* arís Anseo, 'sé fíor
Inár gcroíthe tá muid saor Éistigí liom agus
Seas le na déagóirí
Fanaigí liom don oíche
Lán le spraoi arís
Anseo, 'fós saor
You can’t make us disappear You can't make us disappear

‘nois táim anseo Comme si comme ca Ag teacht i dtír
Cloisim - Oo la la Cloisim - Oo la la
An tú mo ghrá?*
Mo chailín deas
Is me i bParii
an dtiocfaidh tú ar ais? an dtiocfaidh tú ar ais?
Seasaigí Cuma faoi
Rialachaí
C'est la vie
Níl muid inár suí
Na múinteoirí
Zoom TV
Anseo anseo damhsa ar an mbord

Is cuma liom céard
a cheapann tu fúm anois Cloisim mo chara
Ag briseadh ón nós* arís Anseo, 'sé fíor
Inár gcroíthe tá muid saor Éistigí liom agus
Seas le na déagóirí
Fanaigí liom don oíche
Lán le spraoi arís
Anseo, 'fós saor
You can’t make us disappear You can't make us disappear

Saor a chroí Agus éistigí
Bígi Saor a chroí
Seasaigí
Cuma faoi Rialachaí
C'est la vie
Níl muid inár suí Na múinteoirí Zoom TV
Anseo anseo damhsa ar an mbord

Is cuma liom céard
a cheapann tu fúm anois Cloisim mo chara
Ag briseadh ón nós arís Anseo, 'fós saor
You can’t make us disappear Éistigí liom agus
Seas le na déagóirí
Fanaigí liom don oíche
Lán le spraoi arís
Anseo, 'fós saor
Inár gcroíthe tá muid saor
Inár gcroíthe tá muid saor
Stop the hands on the clock
My life, my life got very small
Listen to the clock
For more than a year
Time stood still
Without friends or school
Or anywhere to go - anywhere to go
Stand with me
Don’t care about rules
C’est la via
We’re not sitting down
The teachers
Zoom TV
Here, here
Dancing on the table

I don’t care
What you think about me now I hear my friend
Breaking out of the norm again
Here, it’s true
In our hearts we are free
Listen to me and
Stand with the young people
Stay with me for the night
Full of fun again
Here, still free,
You can’t make us disappear
You can’t make us disappear

Now I’m here
Comme si Comme sa
Arriving on the land here I hear ooh la la
I hear ooh la la
Are you my love?
My lovely girl
With me in Paris
Will you come back? Will you come back?
Stand with me Don’t care about
Rules
C’est la via
We’re not sitting down
The teachers
Zoom TV
Here, here
Dancing on the table

I don’t care
What you think about me now I hear my friend
Breaking out of the norm again
Here, it’s true
In our hearts we are free
Listen to me and
Stand with the young people
Stay with me for the night
Full of fun again
Here, still free,
You can’t make us disappear
You can’t make us disappear

Free, my dear and listen
Be free my dears
Stand with me
Don’t care about rules
C’est la via
We’re not sitting down The teachers
Zoom TV
Here, here
Dancing on the table

I don’t care
What you think about me now I hear my friend
Breaking out of the norm again
Here, it’s true
In our hearts we are free Listen to me and
Stand with the young people
Stay with me for the night
Full of fun again
Here, still free,
You can’t make us disappear
You can’t make us disappear
