I Can was the United Kingdom entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf performed by the group Blue. After a last-place finish the previous year following a national final, the BBC opted to go for an internal selection instead in the hopes of making a turnaround in their fortunes.

As a member of the Big Five, the song was pre-qualified for the final. On the night, it was performed 14th following Switzerland and preceding Moldova. At the close of voting, it finished in 11th place with 100 points, a huge improvement from the year before.

Lyrics

(Ge-ge-ge-get back up again)
(Ge-ge-ge-get back up again)

You were the eyes in the face of fortune
I lost my way and I couldn't find you
Oh… oh no

We're not the first ones to be divided
Won't be the last to be reunited
Oh… oh no

It's like rain fallin' down
Drops of pain hit the ground
I can't speak, there's no sound when you're gone
(Yeah, yeah, come on)

I can, I will
I know I can untie these hands
Ge-ge-ge-get back up again
I can, I will
I know I can untie these hands
Ge-ge-ge-get back up again

I can, oh
I can
(Get back up again)

I've never lost anything quite like this
No second chances if I don't find it
No, oh no, no

You closed the door and you kept on walkin'
Left me behind and there's no more talkin'
No, oh no (Oh no)

It's like rain fallin' down
Drops of pain hit the ground
I can't speak, there's no sound when you're gone

I can, I will
I know I can untie these hands
Ge-ge-ge-get back up again

I can, I will
I know I can untie these hands
Ge-ge-ge-get back up again
(Come on)

I can, oh
I can
(Get back up again)

We're not the first ones to be divided, oh
Won't be the last to be reunited, no
(Come again, one more time)
When you're gone
(Come on)

I can, I will
I know I can untie these hands
Ge-ge-ge-get back up again
I can, I will
I know I can untie these hands
Ge-ge-ge-get back up again

I can, I can
Ge-ge-ge-get back up again[1]
