This Time was the Maltese entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1993 in Millstreet performed by William Mangion. This song was re-recorded in Maltese under the name "Issa", but the English version was allowed to be performed as Malta was allowed to sing in English through the 1990s before the language rule was lifted.

It was performed 8th on the night following Belgium and preceding Iceland. At the close of voting, it finished in 8th place with 69 points.

Lyrics

Oo baby, when I'm alone with you, you show your love for me
I believed that our love was for real, but I knew it was too good to be true

Oh baby, baby, when I found out that you were foolin' around with my heart
It hurt so much, pain unexplained
How could you do it? - I thought I found love

This time I'm gonna stand on my own
I said, now, baby, this time I won't be missin' you at all
No, no, now, baby, this time I'll be strong, I won't fall in love again

You thought I was usin' your love, wastin' all your time, that's where you were wrong
Oh baby, baby, when I found out that you went wrong with foolin' around with my little heart
It hurt so much, pain unexplained
How could you do it when I thought I found love?

This time I'm gonna stand on my own
Said, now, baby, this time I won't be missin' you at all
No, no, now, baby, baby, I'll be strong, I'll be strong, yeah
(This time)
This time I won't be needin' your lovin' for me, baby
Baby, babe, baby, I'm gettin' by
This time I'll be strong, I won't fall in love again
