"For A Thousand Years" was the Slovene entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, sung by Darja Švajger and performed in English, the first time a Slovenian entry was performed in English

The song performed sixth on the night, following the United Kingdom's Precious with "Say It Again" and preceding Turkey's Tuğba Önal and "Dön artık". At the close of voting, it had received 50 points, placing eleventh in a field of twenty three.

It was succeeded as Slovene representative at the 2001 contest, after missing the 2000 contest due to low average figures over the previous five years, by Nuša Derenda with "Energy".
