Absent Friend was the Swedish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1965 in Naples, performed by opera singer Ingvar Wixell. This was the first time that the country had not sung in Swedish in the Contest, and also the first time that any participating country did not sing in its own national language.

In the final, the song was performed 10th, following Monaco and preceding France. At the close of voting, it had placed tenth with 6 points.

Lyrics

A night of spring is a lovely thing
But I feel sad in this night of spring
For this is the time the sloe gets bright
And this is a most bewitching night

And I am lonely and you are far
And you can’t hear what I sing

I wish I knew where you are tonight
I wish you’re thinking of me tonight
Where are you tonight?

I wish you feel how I long for you
And I wish you’re missing me too
And I wish I knew where to go
Knowing you, knowing you

We ought to walk where the cowslips grow
Behind the hedge of candescent sloe
And you ought to smile and look at me
And I ought to kiss you tenderly

But I don’t know if you still are mine
This lovely evening of spring

I wish I knew where you are tonight
I wish you’re thinking of me tonight
Where are you tonight?

I wish you feel how I long for you
And I wish you’re missing me too
And I wish I knew where to go
Knowing you, knowing you
Tonight
