The song is a classic chanson, with the singer addressing her husband and asking him if he remembers their early days as a couple. The lyrics suggest that the romance has gone out of the marriage, although it had not always been this way. Brokken also recorded the song in French and German, as "Tout comme avant" and "Damals war alles so schön".
The song was performed sixth on the night, following Austria's Bob Martin with "Wohin, kleines Pony?" and preceding Germany's Margot Hielscher with "Telefon, Telefon". By the close of voting, it had received 31 points, placing it first in a field of ten.
