The song uses depressing images to describe the singer's mood anticipating a breakup with his significant other, comparable to the feeling of a rainy day or a Monday, contrasted with the "memories of Sunday" when the two were still together, as he hopes she changes her mind and comes back to him. The bridge is noted for its lines: "Misty morning eyes/ I'm trying to disguise the way I feel/ But, I just can't hide it/ People seem to know/ The loneliness will show/ I'm thinking of my pride/ But, breaking up inside, girl." Lead singer Rod Allen uses a vocal technique similar to that used by Frankie Valli on his solo records.
The song reached number 15 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number 8 on the Cash Box Top 100. It was also a hit in Canada (number 25) and charted minorly in Australia.
