"In Your Eyes" is a ballad sung by Irish singer Niamh Kavanagh that won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993 for Ireland with 187 points. The song is a long song written and composed by Jimmy Walsh, where the singer tells how, after being lonely, she has found love and heaven in her lover's arms and how it had changed her.
Kavanagh had a home win, since the contest took place in Ireland due to Linda Martin's win the previous year. It was the second of Ireland's three victories in a row in the early Nineties. The song was performed fourteenth on the night (following Sweden's Arvingarna with "Eloise" and preceding Luxembourg's Modern Times with "Donne-moi une chance"). At the close of voting, it had received 187 points, placing 1st in a field of 25.
The song was succeeded as winner in 1994 by Paul Harrington and Charlie McGettigan, also representing Ireland, singing "Rock 'n' Roll Kids". Niamh Kavanagh also returned to the Contest in 2010 with "It's for You", which came 23rd out of 25 countries, with 25 points in the final.
