The song is a ballad, with Winter telling his lover that he had previously lived in heaven before seeing her. As a result, he fell from his lofty place and now wishes not to return, implying that being with her is in fact better than being in heaven. Winter also recorded an English-language version of the song, entitled "Falling in Love".
The song was performed eighth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Mary Hopkin with "Knock Knock, Who's There?" and preceding Spain's Julio Iglesias with "Gwendolyne"). At the close of voting, it had received the dreaded nul points, placing 12th (last) in a field of 12.
