The song is a ballad, with Aufray musing on how he feels when Spring begins. He sings that everyone finds love during the season, but frequently forgets it later on. As for his own situation, he sings that he hopes to find love, but also that occasionally he "want[s] to die" as a result of not finding it. Aufray also recorded his entry in German, as "Das alles geht vorbei", and Spanish, as "La primavera llegó".
The song was performed first on the night, preceding the Netherlands' Anneke Grönloh with "Jij bent mijn leven". As Luxembourg had performed last at the 1963 contest, this represents the rare event of a country "succeeding itself" on the Eurovision stage. At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 4th in a field of 16.
