"Water" was the song performed at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki by duo Elitsa Todorova and Stoyan Yankoulov on their first of two performances for Bulgaria.

The song is an up-tempo number with techno influences, as well as a jaw harp and traditional percussion. Todorova sings folk-inspired lyrics dealing with a young girl meeting a young boy riding a horse.

The performance in the semi-final featured the duo wearing what looked like armour, while they were wearing more mainstream clothes in the final. The performances were also notable for the high-energy percussion performances of both musicians.

It qualified from the semi final in 5th place. In the final, it was performed twenty-first following Romania and preceding Turkey. At the close of voting, it finished in sixth place with 146 points.
