"Verliebt in Dich" (In Love with You) was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in German by Stone & Stone.

The song was performed third on the night, following Ireland's Eddie Friel with "Dreamin'" and preceding Bosnia and Herzegovina's Davorin Popović with "Dvadeset prvi vijek". At the close of voting, it had received 1 point, placing 23rd (last) in a field of 23, being spared from the dreaded nul points by Malta, which voted second to last among the field of competing countries.

The song is written as a religiously themed ballad, with the singer expressing her love and devotion to God, and explaining that this faith serves to comfort her in troubled times. Stone & Stone also recorded an English-language version of the song, bearing the title "(Oh Lord) I Realized It's You".

Due to the rapidly expanding size of the Contest, the decision was taken prior to the 1996 Contest that all entries would have to pre-qualify based on the opinions of a panel of judges listening to recordings of the songs. The would-be German entrant (Leon with "Planet of Blue") did not progress beyond this stage. His failure to do so was one of the main factors in the establishment of the "Big Four" tradition, whereby Germany, France, Spain and the United Kingdom would be guaranteed a berth in the Contest.

With a change to the rules again prior to the 1997 contest allowing Germany back in, the song was succeeded as German representative at that Contest by Bianca Shomburg with "Zeit".
