"Without Your Love" was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, performed in English by Gary O'Shaughnessy.

The song is a ballad, with O'Shaughnessy telling his lover that he doesn't want to live his life without her. He tells her, for example, that "You're the light in the dark".

The song was performed twelfth on the night, following Portugal's MTM with "Só sei ser feliz assim" and preceding Spain's David Civera with "Dile que la quiero". At the close of voting, it had received 6 points, placing 21st in a field of 23. As Ireland finished in the bottom 8 countries, they were unable to compete in the 2002 contest.

The song was thus succeeded as Irish representative at the 2003 contest by Mickey Joe Harte with "We've Got the World".
