Time is a song by Israeli band Izabo. The song represented Israel at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, but did not make it to the final.[1] The song is described as a pop song with an oriental influence.[2] Frantz writes: "It is surrealistic-postmodern and the tune is close to that of 'Dream Lover' song made popular by Bobby Darin in 1959."[3]

Two versions of the song exist. One version is in English with the chorus in Hebrew and it was the version which was used in the Eurovision Song Contest. The other version is entirely in English. There are also two versions of the video. There is a preview video which is set in a circus where the band perform the song and are joined by various circus acts and a stop motion video which gives the effect of various facial images of the band being put up and taken down at such a high speed that it looks like they are being animated.
