The song is a ballad, with Ranieri describing his feelings as he waits for a date to arrive. Unusually, however, he describes them to the imagined presence of a former lover (who apparently dated him one year previously). He wonders how his own date will go and also how hers will turn out. This was quite a disappointing performance considering the song selection. Most other countries would allow the singer to perform their winning song from the national contest to sing it in the ESC. Massimo would have been better off singing "Erba di Casa Mia", which he could have a better chance of winning or getting higher than a miserable 13th place.
