Take me to your heaven was the Swedish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, and performed by Charlotte Nilsson, who went on to represent Sweden again in 2008. The song was the 47th winning song of the contest.

The song was performed in Swedish at the Melodifestivalen 1999, the national heats for Sweden, under the title Tusen Och En Natt. The song was then changed to English following the lifting of the rule that required songs to be in their national languages. The orchestra was also abolished in 1999, so no conductor was sent.

Lyrics

Shadows dancin' slowly on my wall
Moonlight paintin' silver to the sound of heartbeats
Magical emotions take control
Knowin' we will meet before the night is over
 
Then I'm gonna make you mine, love you till the end of time
 
Take me to your heaven, hold on to a dream
Take me to your heaven when my nights are cold and lonely
Flyin' high together on a journey to the stars
Won't you take me to your heaven, to your heart?
 
I can feel your body next to mine
Reachin' for a kiss that keeps me warm and tender
Seven steps to heaven show the way
When I'm there, I give myself in sweet surrender
 
Then I'm gonna make you mine, love you till the end of time
 
Take me to your heaven, hold on to a dream
Take me to your heaven when my nights are cold and lonely
Flyin' high together on a journey to the stars
Won't you take me to your heaven, to your heart?
 
As dawn is breakin' there is so much more to say
So will you be my one and only when nights are lonely?
Hold on tight forever
 
Take me to your heaven, hold on to a dream
Take me to your heaven when my nights are cold and lonely
Flyin' high together on a journey to the stars
Won't you take me to your heaven, to your heart?
 
Oh... so won't you take me to your heaven, to your heart?
