"Keep Me Warm" (original Finnish title "Älä mene pois" - "Don't Go Away") was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1974, performed in English by Carita.

The song was performed first on the night (preceding the United Kingdom's Olivia Newton-John with "Long Live Love"). At the close of voting, it had received 4 points, placing 13th in a field of 17.

The song is sung from the perspective of a young woman asking a "friend" to stay with her and "keep me warm". She suggests that she can do the same for him, and there is a general implication that she wants there to be a relationship between the two of them.

It was succeeded as Finnish representative at the 1975 Contest by Pihasoittajat with "Old Man Fiddle".
