Amar pelos dois was the Portuguese entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kiev performed by Salvador Sobral. This is the country's return after a 1-year absence.

It qualified from the first semifinal in first place, the country's first qualification in 7 years. In the final, it was performed 11th following Denmark and preceding Azerbaijan. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 758 points, shattering the all-time points record and ending the longest wait for a country's first win, having waited 53 years for this moment.

As he had done in the Portuguese final, Salvador performed the winner's reprise with his sister Luísa, who wrote the song.

Lyrics

Se um dia alguém perguntar por mim
Diz que vivi p’ra te amar
Antes de ti, só existi
Cansado e sem nada p’ra dar

Meu bem, ouve as minhas preces
Peço que regresses, que me voltes a querer
Eu sei que não se ama sozinho
Talves devagarinho possas voltar a aprender

Meu bem, ouve as minhas preces
Peço que regresses, que me voltes a querer
Eu sei que não se ama sozinho
Talves devagarinho possas voltar a aprender

Se o teu coração não quiser ceder
Não sentir paixão, não quiser sofrer
Sem fazer planos do que virá depois
O meu coração pode amar pelos dois

If one day someone asks for me
Says I lived to love you
Before you, I only existed
Tired and with nothing to give

My love, listen to my prayers.
I ask you to come back, that you want me again
I know you do not love yourself
Maybe you can learn again slowly.

My love, listen to my prayers.
I ask you to come back, that you want me again
I know you do not love yourself
Maybe you can learn again slowly.

If your heart does not want to give in
Do not feel passion, do not want to suffer
Without making plans of what will come after
My heart can love for both
