The song is a ballad, with Hurley singing about the manner in which "my thoughts run on to you" at various times during the day. It is later revealed, however, that the lover he sings about is no longer with him, something which plays on his mind considerably. The song ends with a plea for this lover to return to him.
The song was performed seventh on the night (following Belgium's Pierre Rapsat with " Judy et Cie" and preceding the Netherlands' Sandra Reemer with " The Party's Over"). At the close of voting, it had received 54 points, placing 10th in a field of 18.
It was succeeded as Irish representative at the 1977 Contest by The Swarbriggs Plus Two with " It's Nice to Be in Love Again".
