"Envie de vivre" ("The Will to Live") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2000, performed in French by Nathalie Sorce.[1]

The song was performed tenth on the night, following Russia's Alsou with "Solo" and preceding Cyprus' Voice with "Nomiza". At the close of voting, it had received 2 points, placing last of 24 countries.

Sorce sings about the will to live and the power that it has, although she points out the difficulties of living in a world without love.[2]

Due to the expanded Contest, Belgium's poor recent record made them ineligible for participation in the 2001 Contest, but as a "passive country", they were invited to return for 2002. Thus, the song was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 2002 Contest by Sergio & The Ladies with "Sister".
