It Hurts was the Swedish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 in Istanbul performed by Lena Philipsson.

An uptempo, disco sounding song, Philipsson's stage appearance caused much controversy in Swedish press and media because her performance, in a short fuchsia pink dress and high heels, consisted of dancing with the microphone stand in a fashion similar to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

Under the new rules, Sweden did not have to participate in the semifinal due to their 5th-place finish in 2003. In the final, it was performed last following Romania. At the close of voting, it finished in 5th place with 170 points, giving Sweden a guaranteed spot in the 2005 final.

Lyrics

Nobody but me could know the way I feel

I’m standing on a rooftop and I’m crying out your name
I’m looking for an answer and for somebody to blame
‘Cause even though it’s over you linger on my mind, oh…

Hurts, oh it hurts, really hurts
In the middle of the night, in the light of the day
You know that it hurts, oh it hurts, really hurts
And I wish I could be stronger, no longer afraid

Nobody but me could know the way I feel
Oh it hurts, oh it hurts

I’m trying to forget love, the pain I feel inside
I’m clinging to my pillow and the tears I cannot hide
I wish it could be over so I can start anew, oh…

Hurts, oh it hurts, really hurts
In the middle of the night, in the light of the day
You know that it hurts, oh it hurts, really hurts
And I wish I could be stronger, no longer afraid

Nobody but me could know the way I feel
Oh it hurts, oh…

Not easy to remember and even harder to forget
Whenever I surrender (Whenever I surrender)
Oh, you’re always on my mind…

(Hurts, oh, it hurts, really hurts)
Oh, in the middle of the night, in the light of the day
You know that it hurts, oh it hurts, really hurts
And I wish I could be stronger, no longer afraid

Nobody but me could know the way I feel
Oh it hurts, ooh it hurts (Ooh it hurts)
I wish I could be stronger
Oh, but it hurts
(Hurts, oh it hurts, oh it hurts)
