As Denmark had not finished in the top 10 at the 2004 Contest, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed twenty-fourth (following Slovenia's Omar Naber with "Stop" and preceding Poland's Ivan & Delfin with "Czarna dziewczyna"). It received 185 points to place 3rd in the 25-song semi-final and qualify for the final.
In the final, it was performed thirteenth (following Serbia and Montenegro's No Name with "Zauvijek moja" and preceding Sweden's Martin Stenmarck with "Las Vegas". At the close of voting, it had received 125 points, placing 9th in a field of 24 and ensuring that Denmark would remain in the final at their next Contest appearance.
The song itself is a love ballad, with Sveistrup trying to communicate his interest in a woman. He appears quite shy in the lyrics, as he is "talking to you, through my heart".
Musically, the song owes something to the reggae style of music.
The rules of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix were changed so that songs could be performed in any language, however Jakob Sveistrup, did not take advantage of this and performed his song in Danish at the national finals.
