Millennium of Love was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2000 in Stockholm performed by Eamonn Toal. The song is a dramatic ballad, inspired by the coming of the new millennium, 2000.

Eamonn sings about the negative aspects of the modern world, but expresses hope that humanity will overcome these and let our carbon footprints leave a harvest for future generations. It was a song before its time as today everyone is talking about the importance of carbon footprints. Although it swept the boards at the Eurosong Ireland via a public voting system, the song was unkindly dubbed 'Millennium Of Cheese' by cynics in Ireland, who accused it of being yet another bland ballad with schmaltzy lyrics.

However, it still remains Ireland's best placing in the Eurovision since the new system of televoting took place scoring more votes than the combined total of Ireland's next 5 entries. The song was performed 23rd on the night, following Turkey and preceding Austria. At the close of voting, it finished in 6th place with 92 points.

Lyrics

Nature's child lays beside a mother's broken heart
We stand denied the power and glory
Bitterness can't feed the hungry, hate just leaves us cold
It's time to change it

I lit a candle in a dream I thought I heard
Liberated voices crying freedom
Open hearts, open doors in truth and honesty
Let wisdom be the guiding light

Celebrate the new millennium of love
Where our footprints leave a harvest for the children
Somewhere on our journey lies a world beyond compare
I believe we all have the answer

A cloud can hide a mountain
And a face can hide the pain
Search until you find the answer
There is no reason
Who can understand man's inhumanity to man?

Celebrate the new millennium of love
Where our footprints leave a harvest for the children
Somewhere on our journey lies a world beyond compare
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you

(Celebrate the new millennium of love)
Let our footprints leave a harvest for the children
Somewhere on our journey lies a world beyond compare
I believe we all have the answer
I believe we all have the answer
