Frans Jeppsson-Wall wordt in Zweden bekend met de groep Elias en voert in 2006 voor 13 weken de Zweedse hitlijst aan met Who’s Da’ Man, een eerbetoon aan voetballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Twee jaar later staat dezelfde combinatie van Elias en Frans opnieuw op 1 met Fotbollsfest, het themalied voor het Zweedse voetbalteam tijdens de EK van 2008.



In 2016 doet Frans mee aan Melodifestivalen, de Zweedse voorronde voor het Eurovisiesongfestival. Zijn If I Were Sorry komt op de eerste plaats in de Zweedse singlelijst en op 12 maart wordt hij de winnaar van de voorronde. Na Carola (1983) is hij met 17 jaar de een na jongste winaar in de 33-jarige geschiedenis van de voorronde.

If I Were Sorry wordt op het Eurovisiesongfestival van 2016 in Stockholm uiteindelijk vijfde.

Songtekst

I’d crawl through the desert on my hands and knees
Rehearsin' my pretty please
Climb the highest mountain
If I were sorry

Shout it from the top
Swim under water until my lungs exploded
Walk into the fire
If I were sorry

I'd run a thousand miles
Wouldn't stop until I dropped
Wouldn’t take a break to breathe
Until I got close enough

Then I'd do it all again
If I really had the chance
But I know deep inside
For you it's just another dance

If I were sorry
I’d give you all the glory
If I were sorry
If I were sorry
It would be a different story
If I were sorry
If I were sorry, oh

I’d hold my breath until my face turned blue
I’d rob a bank and the post office too
Swim across the ocean
If I were sorry

I’d take vow of silence
I wouldn’t say a single word
Until you really heard
If I were sorry

I’d run a thousand miles
Wouldn’t stop until I dropped
Wouldn’t take the break to breathe
Until I, I got close enough

If I were sorry
I’d give you all the glory
If I were sorry
If I were sorry
It would be a different story
If I were sorry, oh

Now did you ever realize
That your mistake had a prize
Oh, you threw it all away
Cause you're the devil in disguise

Now would you ever realize
The consequences of your lies
And would you save the falling tear
Or act as if there’s nothing there

If I were sorry (If I were sorry)
If I were sorry (If I were sorry)

If I were sorry
I’d take a vow of silence
Wouldn’t say a single word
If I were sorry

If I were sorry
I’d be on my hands and knees
Beggin' pretty please
If I were sorry
But I’m not sorry, no
