For a Thousand Years was the Slovenian entry at the 1999 Contest performed by returning artist Darja Švajger, who previously took part for her country in 1995 with Prisluhni mi.

This was the first Slovenian entry to be performed in English due to the relaxation of the language rule. It was performed sixth in the running order, after Precious of the United Kingdom, and before Tuğba Önal & Grup Mistik of Turkey. Švajger finished just outside the top ten, placing 11th this time around with 50 points - four places lower than in 1995.

Lyrics

Teardrops in my eyes, a dance of glistening rain
Falling from the sky, a carpet of the stars
Clouds of tenderness are fleeing in the light
Now it's here, the light for a thousand years

I tremble in your eyes, I tremble in your palms
Lie inside you deep, in dreams of yours I sleep
Caress you with my eyes and love you with my hands
Yes, I feel the light for a thousand years

I know you are my love
A touch, a kiss, your heart is mine
I know the light is always here
We kiss each other in its shine

I tremble in your eyes, I tremble in your palms
Lie inside you deep, in dreams of yours I sleep
Caress you with my eyes and love you with my hands
Yes, I feel the light for a thousand years

I know you are my love
A touch, a kiss, your heart is mine
I know the light is always here
We kiss each other in its shine[1]
