"Jij Bent Mijn Leven" (English translation: "You Are My Life") was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1964, performed in Dutch by Anneke Grönloh.

The song is sung from the perspective of a woman whose lover has been unfaithful. She tells him that she is fully aware of his infidelity, but she chooses to ignore it "because you are my life". It appears from the lyrics that this has been a common situation in their relationship.

The song was performed second on the night (following Luxembourg's Hugues Aufray with "Dès Que Le Printemps Revient" and preceding Norway's Arne Bendiksen with "Spiral"). At the close of voting, it had received 2 points, placing 10th in a field of 16.

It was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 1965 Contest by Conny Vandenbos with "'t Is Genoeg".
