Somewhere In Europe was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1990 in Zagreb performed by Liam Reilly

The song is a ballad, in which Reilly sings about his desire to meet a former lover once again. He sings that he is "back in Ireland", which implies that the romance took place during a trip through Europe. He then reminisces about the relationship they had (in places such as Brussels, Amsterdam and the Black Forest), as well as begging the former lover to "meet me in Paris" among other locations in order to rekindle the romance.

The song was performed seventeenth on the night, following Portugal and preceding Sweden. At the close of voting, it finished in joint second place with France, both receiving 132 points

Lyrics

It’s been a long time since we were together
I’m back in Ireland and I miss you more than ever
In early spring we parted and I’ve been here since then
But if I could only see you once again

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, ‘neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, and maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe tonight

I remember Amsterdam as we sailed along the canal
And as the leaves began to fall, we were walking in old Bruxelles
In the Black Forest on a German summer’s day
And the memories refuse to go away

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, ‘neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, and maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe

Don’t you remember those Adriatic days?
I miss your laughter and all your little ways
I can still see you in London, walking on Trafalgar Square
And drinking wine in Old Seville, how I wish that we were there

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, ‘neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe tonight

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, ‘neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, and maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe tonight

Somewhere in Europe tonight
Somewhere in Europe
