"Sans toi" (English translation: "Without You") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1973, performed in French by Martine Clémenceau.

The song was performed sixteenth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Cliff Richard with "Power to All Our Friends" and preceding Israel's Ilanit with "Ey Sham"). At the close of voting, it had received 65 points, placing 15th in a field of 17.

The song is a dramatic ballad, with Clémenceau expressing her feelings about a lover who has left her. Clémenceau also recorded the song in German, under the title "Immer" (translated: "Still").

France withdrew from the 1974 Contest due to the funeral of President Georges Pompidou, making it the first time in the history of Eurovision since its inception in 1956 that France did not participate. Thus, "Sans toi" was succeeded as French representative at the 1975 Contest by Nicole Rieu with "Et bonjour à toi l'artiste".
