"Valentine Lost" (Icelandic version: "Ég les í lófa þínum") was the Icelandic entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, performed in English by Eiríkur Hauksson.

The song is a ballad, featuring poetic language, in which the singer describes the end of a love affair. He suggests that his former lover is unaware of the pain she has caused him, while also contending that "rock 'n' roll will heal your soul".

As Iceland had not finished the 2006 Contest in the top 10, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed fifth (following Belarus' Koldun with Work Your Magic and preceding Georgia's Sopho with Visionary Dream). At the close of voting, it had received 77 points, placing 13th in a field of 28 and thus missing out on qualification for the final.
