Se o teu coração não quiser ceder
Não sentir paixão, não quiser sofrer
Sem fazer planos do que virá depois
O meu coração pode amar pelos dois
If you heart won't be wiling to give in
Won't be willing to feel, nor to suffer
Without making plans of what will come ahead
My heart can love for both of us instead
Lyrics: Amar Pelos Dois(English translation)

Portugal in Eurovision Song Contest

Portugal 2014 | Suzy - "Quero Ser Tua"
Portugal has participated 49 times since 1964. It was a very bad start, as they managed to get Zero Points in the debuting year. Until 2017 they have never won the contest, and never made the top-5. In fact Portugal did hold the record for most appearances in the contest without a win!

Since the introduction of Semi-finals in 2004 Portugal only qualified for the Grand Final 4 out of 12 times.
