The song is a ballad, with Szigeti singing about his attempt to meet with an old friend but having no luck. It appears, for example, that she has moved and that someone else now lives in her house.
Due to a change in qualification rules prior to the 1996 Contest, all entries had to pre-qualify based on the opinions of judges listening to recordings of the song, something which the proposed Hungarian entry for that Contest did not do. This rule was rescinded for the 1997 Contest, hence the song was succeeded as Hungarian representative at that Contest by V.I.P. with Miért kell, hogy elmenj?.
