"Tule luo" (English translation: "Come To Me") was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1993, performed in Finnish by Katri Helena. This was Katri Helena's second Eurovision entry, in the 1979 contest she sang "Katson sineen taivaan" ("I Will Follow Starlight"), placing 14th in a field of 19.

The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following Slovenia's 1x Band with "Tih Deževen Dan" and preceding Bosnia and Herzegovina's Fazla with "Sva Bol Svijeta"). At the close of voting, it had received 20 points, placing 17th in a field of 25.

The song is a plea from the singer for someone (presumably a lover) to "come to me". She sings about the reasons this person should come to her, including that he or she will "bring a light to the dark night". The lyrics are notable for not containing any Ö or Ä sounds, as otherwise very common in the Finnish language. Katri Helena did not record "Tule luo" in any other language than Finnish.

It was succeeded as Finnish representative at the 1994 Contest by CatCat with "Bye Bye Baby".
