The song is a ballad, with Bittman addressing his lover directly. He tells her that he accepts that he has wronged her in the past, but that with their mutual love he will be able to treat her better. He sings, "I am not asking for forgiveness for all I have done/I am asking for a ray of love to start all over again".
Due to the poor result, Romania was rendered ineligible to participate in the 1995 contest. Additionally, Romania's entry for the 1996 Contest did not qualify through the internal selection for that year's Contest, rendering Romania ineligible for the 1997 Contest as well. As a "passive participant" (a country broadcasting but not entering the Contest) in 1997, Romania was re-admitted the following year. Thus, the song was succeeded as Romanian representative at the 1998 Contest by Mălina Olinescu with "Eu cred".
