The song is a ballad, with McGeegan reminiscing about the first time he saw his lover. He tells her that he thought her appearance in his life was "the chance of a lifetime", and goes on to explain that he does not want to lose such a chance.
The song was performed fourteenth on the night, following Norway's Odd Børre with "Stress" and preceding Spain's Massiel with "La, la, la". At the close of voting, it had received 18 points, placing 4th in a field of 17. However, the song went to the top of the Irish singles chart, only to be knocked off a week later by Cliff Richard's "Congratulations", which came second in the contest.
