"Living My Life Without You" was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in English by Van Eijk.

The song is an up-tempo number, heavily inspired by urban music, in which Van Eijk takes the role of a man whose lover has left him. He tells her that "Something is missing, baby", explaining that his whole world has changed without her and that he wants her back for that reason.

The song was performed eighth on the night, following Turkey's Tuğba Önal & Grup Mistik with "Dön artık" and preceding Denmark's Michael Teschl & Trine Jepsen with "This Time I Mean It". At the close of voting, it had received 35 points, placing 14th in a field of 23.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 2000 Contest by Charmed with "My Heart Goes Boom".
