Mitt liv was the Norwegian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1987 in Brussels performed by Kate Gulbrandsen. It was written by Rolf Løvland and Hanne Krogh, both of whom had a hand in Norway's first winning song in 1985 - he as the composer and she as one half of Bobbysocks!.

The song is a ballad, with Kate singing about her feelings towards her life. She sings that she needs to take responsibility for it, although she appears hesitant to do so.

At the contest, it was performed first preceding Israel. At the close of voting, it finished in 9th place with 65 points.

Lyrics

Nå er scenelyset tent, en stemme hvisker spent
Hva har jeg å si?
Kan jeg våge å gå frem? Tør jeg møte dem?
Har jeg nok å gi?
Jeg må gripe sjansen nå
Men kan jeg stole på meg selv, mitt liv?

Nå står jeg foran en vei bare jeg kan gå
En fremtid i mine hender
Og et mål bare jeg kan nå
Ingen kan ta fra meg min drøm, det er mitt liv

Jeg leter etter svar
Alle tankene jeg har gir meg tvil
Men det får ikke stanse meg
Jeg vil gå min egen vei og jeg tør å si
Det er meg det gjelder nå
Nå skal jeg stole på meg selv, mitt liv

Nå står jeg foran en vei bare jeg kan gå
En fremtid i mine hender
Og et mål bare jeg kan nå
Ingen kan ta fra meg min drøm

Foran en vei bare jeg kan gå
En fremtid i mine hender
Og et mål bare jeg kan nå
Ingen kan ta fra meg min drøm
Min drøm

Now the limelight has been lit, a voice whispers anxiously
What have I to say?
Will I dare to walk forward? Do I dare to meet them?
Do I have enough to give?
I have to seize the chance now
But can I trust myself, my life?

Now I'm standing in front of a road, only I can walk
A future in my hands
And a goal only I can catch
No one can take my dream away from me, it is my life

I'm looking for answers
All the thoughts I have, make me doubt
But that won't stop me
I want to go my own way and I dare to say
Now it's me it's all about
Now I'm going to trust myself, my life

Now I'm standing in front of a road, only I can walk
A future in my hands
And a goal only I can catch
No one can take my dream away from me

In front of a road, only I can walk
A future in my hands
And a goal only I can catch
No one can take my dream away from me
My dream
