The song is a ballad, in which Barbarossa apologises to the recipient of a letter he is writing for using this method of communication. This recipient appears to be a former lover, as he sings that "Without a good reason/I just scream out your name/It makes me feel alive" and makes mention of deep feelings which needed to be communicated.
The song was performed eighteenth on the night (following Luxembourg's Lara Fabian with "Croire" and preceding France's Gérard Lenorman with "Chanteur de charme"). At the close of voting, it had received 52 points, placing 12th in a field of 21.
