Why Me? was the Irish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1992 in Malmo performed by Linda Martin and written by 2-time winner Johnny Logan. It is sung from the point of view of a woman who is lucky to have her lover in her life - Johnny had originally written it about his wife. He also admitted that it appealed to him to win singing someone else's song, singing his own song, and have another artist win singing one of his songs.

At the contest, it was performed seventeenth following the United Kingdom and preceding Denmark. At the close of voting, it came first with 155 points giving Ireland its fourth victory overall and the first of three consecutive wins in the early 90s. It also entered Linda into the elite group of artists who finished first one-year and second in another and further cemented Johnny's "legendary" status in Eurovision history, joining the group of composers who have written two winning songs.

Lyrics

Sometimes I watch you passing by my window
And sometimes I watch you passing through my dreams
And sometimes, when I look at you
You take my breath away

Sometimes I try and understand your reasons
You choose to feel the way you feel about me
And sometimes, when I turn around
And you’re there, like today
I wanna say:

Why me?
I look at you and I get to feeling, why me?
(Why me? Ooh…)
I know it’s true but I can’t believe it
I keep on wonderin’ why my love shines in your eyes
Why me?
I look at you and I ask myself, why me?

Sometimes I lie awake and watch you sleeping
And listen to the beating of your heart
And sometimes, when you’re lyin’ there
You take my breath away
And I wanna say

Why me?
I look at you and I get to feeling, why me?
(Why me? Ooh…)
I know it’s true but I can’t believe that it’s me
Who’s gonna be holdin’ you in my arms tonight
And why it’s me who’s gonna be the one to make you feel all right tonight

Why me?
I look at you and I get to feeling, why me?
(Why me? Ooh…)
I know it’s true but I can’t believe it
I keep on wonderin’ why my love shines in your eyes
Why me?
I look at you and I ask myself, why me?

Why me?
