The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with Roberts singing about a woman he saw at an airport (with a "Ticket in your hand"). He sings that he was instantly attracted to her, despite having no knowledge about where she was from or where she was going. In the course of his musing, he wonders if she was perhaps from Paris, Italy or even "the gulf of Araby". As the song ends, however, she has been called to board her plane and he is left still wondering about her.
The song was performed fifth on the night, following Austria's Bettina Soriat with "One Step" and preceding Slovenia's Tanja Ribič with "Zbudi se". At the close of voting, it had received 157 points, placing 2nd in a field of 25. As of the 2015 contest, this was the last time Ireland had a song that placed in the top five.
