"Amanece" (Spanish pronunciation: [amaˈneθe], "It's Dawning") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1972, performed in Spanish by Jaime Morey.

The song is a ballad in which Morey sings to his former lover. "It's dawning/But it seems like the sky became grey for us/Because of the sad moment when I heard your goodbye". Morey asks if they can "start all over again", and together find "a place beyond the sea/Where the day shines brighter in the dawn". Morey also recorded the song in an English language version, entitled "Let's Begin Again".

At the Contest, it was performed fourth on the night, following Ireland's Sandie Jones with "Ceol an Ghrá" and preceding United Kingdom's The New Seekers with "Beg, Steal or Borrow". At the close of voting, it had received 83 points, placing 10th in a field of 18.

The following year the Spanish entry at the 1973 Contest was "Eres tú" by Mocedades.
