Draumur um Nínu (translation: The Dream about Nina), sometimes simply referred to as Nina, was the Icelandic entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1991 in Rome performed by Stefán & Eyfi

The song, with its catchy piano intro, is a ballad, with the singers expressing their love for the titular Nina. It appears that she can never be with them, however the reason for this is never explained.

It was performed second on the night following Yugoslavia and preceding Malta. At the close of voting, it finished in 15th place with 26 points. Despite the low result, it maintained regular airplay in Iceland.

Lyrics

Núna ertu hjá mér, Nína
Strýkur mér um vangann, Nína
Ó, haltu í höndina á mér, Nína
Því þú veist að ég mun aldrei aftur
Ég mun aldrei, aldrei aftur
Aldrei aftur eiga stund með þér

Það er sárt að sakna einhvers
Lífið heldur áfram, til hvers?
Ég vil ekki vakna frá þér

Því ég veit að þú munt aldrei aftur
Þú munt aldrei, aldrei aftur
Aldrei aftur strjúka vanga minn

Þegar þú í draumum mínum birtist allt er ljúft og gott
Og ég vildi ég gæti sofið heila öld
Því að nóttin veitir aðeins skamma stund með þér

Er ég vakna
Nína, þú ert ekki lengur hér
Opna augun
Engin strýkur blítt um vanga mér

Dagurinn er eilífð án þín
Kvöldið kalt og tómlegt án þín
Er nóttin kemur fer ég til þín

Þegar þú í draumum mínum birtist allt er ljúft og gott
Og ég vildi ég gæti sofið heila öld
Því að nóttin veitir aðeins skamma stund með þér

Er ég vakna
Nína, þú ert ekki lengur hér
Opna augun
Engin strýkur blítt um vanga mér

Er ég vakna, ó
Nína, þú ert ekki lengur hér
Opna augun
Engin strýkur blítt um vanga mér

Now you are beside me, Nina
Caressing my cheek, Nina
Oh, hold my hand, Nina
For you know that I will never again
I will never, never again
Never again share a moment with you

It hurts to miss someone
Life goes on, but for what reason?
I do not want to wake up from you

Because I know that you will never ever
You will never, never ever
Never ever caress my cheek

When you appear in my dreams everything is sweet and good
I wish I could sleep for a century
Because the night only offers a moment with you

When I wake up
Nina, you are no longer here
My eyes open
But there’s no one to caress my cheek

A day is like an eternity, without you
The night is cold and empty, without you
When the night comes I go to you

When you appear in my dreams everything is sweet and good
I wish I could sleep for a century
Because the night only offers a moment with you

When I wake up
Nina, you are no longer here
My eyes open
But there’s no one to caress my cheek

When I wake up, oh
Nina, you are no longer here
My eyes open
But there’s no one to caress my cheek
