Nur noch Gefühl was the Austrian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1987 in Brussels performed by Gary Lux. It was his third attempt at representing his country after top 10 finishes in 1983 (with the group Westend) and 1985 (as a soloist).

The song is a ballad, in which Lux sings to his lover that "only emotion exists" between them.

It was performed 3rd on the night following Israel and preceding Iceland. At the close of voting, it finished in 20th place with 8 points, only getting scores from the Italian and Greek juries.


Halt dich fest an mir, wenn du den Mut verlierst
Ich will zärtlich sein, dass du nicht frierst
Du bist wie ein Kind, das ich behüten will
Was mit uns beginnt, ist nur noch Gefühl

Auch du hast das Feuer oft berührt
Bist d'ran verbrannt, hast dich nur darin verirrt

Unser Feuer brennt, langsam und still
Denn es gibt für uns nur noch Gefühl

Und nie mehr diese Leere spür'n
Nur noch Gefühl und nie mehr
Diese Liebe auf Zeit, in Einsamkeit
Nur noch Gefühl

Komm' ganz nah zu mir, weil ich dich spüren will
Und ich gebe dir nur noch Gefühl

Soviel du willst, nur noch Gefühl
Soviel ich hab', nur noch Gefühl
Nur noch Gefühl

Hold me tight, when you lose courage
I want to be tender, so you don't have to freeze
You're like a child, that I want to protect
At the beginning, we only have feelings

Also, you've often touched the fire
You've burned yourself on it, you only got lost in it

Our fire burns, slowly and quietly
Because for us, only feelings exist

And we'll never feel this emptiness again
Only feelings, and nothing more
This love for a time, in loneliness
Are only feelings

Come closer to me, because I want to feel you
And I only give you feelings

As much as you want, only feelings
As much as I have, only feelings
Only feelings
