When You Need Me was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999 in Jerusalem performed by The Mullans.

The song is a ballad, sung from the perspective of a woman whose lover has ended their relationship. She explains that she realises that they had not connected ("But the fool that I am/Never tried to understand") and pleads with him for another chance, promising that "When you need me I'll be there".

It was performed 17th following Portugal and preceding Austria. At the close of voting, it finished in 17th place with 18 points

Lyrics

And you would always be there
In everything I’d do
But the fool that I am
Never tried to understand

When you needed someone
To help you through the rain
But this child inside of me
Never let me feel your pain

And how I’ve let it all just slip away
And now I’m wishing for yesterday

Don’t you go on your own
Don’t leave me here alone
‘Cause I’ll be there, yes, I swear
When you need me I’ll be there

Don’t you go, I’m on my own
Don’t you go

You’ve been my inspiration
All along the way
But I can see it in your eyes
Well, there’s no more yesterday

But I will find my way back
No matter what it takes
For the first time I can see
The love you lost on me

Don’t you go on your own
Don’t leave me here alone
‘Cause I’ll be there, yes, I swear
When you need me I’ll be there
Don’t you go, no, no

And now I’ve let it all just slip away
But the fool, the fool’s inside of me

Don’t you go on your own
Don’t leave me here alone
‘Cause I’ll be there, yes, I swear
When you need me I’ll be there

Don’t you go, I’m on my own
Don’t you go
