Only Teardrops was the Danish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmo performed by Emmelie de Forest.

It qualified from the final in first place. In the final, it was performed 18th following Hungary and preceding Iceland. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 281 points, giving Denmark its third victory.

At the 2014 contest in Copenhagen, Emmelie performed it with a choir of people from across Europe to open the first semifinal, and performed a truncated version along with her new single Rainmaker during the grand final.

Lyrics

The sky is red tonight
We're on the edge tonight
No shooting star to guide us

Eye for an eye, why tear each other apart?
Please tell me why, why do we make it so hard?
Look at us now, we only got ourselves to blame
It's such a shame

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us – only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right?
Between us – only teardrops

So come and face me now
Here on the stage tonight
Let's leave the past behind us

Eye for an eye, why tear each other apart?
Please tell me why, why do we make it so hard?
Look at us now, we only got ourselves to blame
It's such a shame

Tell me
How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us – only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right between us?
Only teardrops

(Tell me now) What's gone between us has come between us
Only teardrops
(Tell me now) What's gone between us has come between us

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us – only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right?
Between us – only teardrops, only teardrops
Oh... only teardrops, only teardrops

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us – only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right?
Between us – only teardrops
