The song is a ballad, in which Dunphy tells his lover how special she is to him. He explains that, while he currently lives in County Clare, he would willingly live in a desert if it meant that he could live with her. He also sets up other scenarios, including choosing to walk "the longest road" with her and talk with her on "the longest day", asking "What would I lose if I could choose?".
The musical arrangement of this song was by Pat King.
