"Your Heart Belongs To Me" is an English language pop song by Dutch singer Hind, released as a single on 14 April 2008. The song is composed by Hind, Tjeerd van Zanen, and Bas van den Heuvel. The lyrics are written by Hind and Tjeerd van Zanen.[1]

It was the first time Hind has contributed to the writing of one of her songs. It is an up-tempo pop song with rock and Arabic influences. The lyrics are about a boy Hind had fallen in love with five years before.[2]

The song was the Dutch entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in Belgrade, Serbia. Hind performed the song during the first semi-final on 20 May, performing 15th in the running order, following Armenia's Sirusho with "Qélé, Qélé" and preceding Finland's Teräsbetoni with "Missä miehet ratsastaa". The song received 27 points, placing 13th in a field of 19 and failing to qualify for the final.

The song was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 2009 contest by De Toppers with "Shine".
