"Sentiments songes" ("Liar feelings", portmanteau between "sentiments" and "mensonges") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1997, performed in French by Fanny.
The song was performed twenty-second on the night, following Denmark's Kølig Kaj with "Stemmen i mit liv" and preceding Croatia's E.N.I. with "Probudi me". At the close of voting, it had received 95 points, placing 7th in a field of 25.
The song is a ballad, with Fanny explaining that we often run from love, instead of embracing it. She puts this down to fear of our true feelings.
It was succeeded as French representative at the 1998 Contest by Marie Line with "Où aller".
