"This Time I Mean It" was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in English (the first time the entry from Denmark had not performed in Danish) by Michael Teschl & Trine Jepsen.

The song was performed in Danish at the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, titled "Denne gang" ("This time").

The song was performed ninth on the night, following Norway's Van Eijk with "Living My Life Without You" and preceding France's Nayah with "Je veux donner ma voix". At the close of voting, it had received 71 points, placing 8th in a field of 23.

The song is sung from the perspective of two people realising that they are in love with each other "again", and promising that this time they will be better in the relationship than they had been before.

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 2000 Contest by the Olsen Brothers with "Fly on the Wings of Love".
