As Cyprus had not finished in the top ten at the 2003 Contest, the song was performed for the first time in the semi-final. Here, it was performed fourteenth (following
Albania's Anjeza Shahiniwith " The Image Of You" and preceding FYR Macedonia's Toše Proeskiwith "Life"). It received 149 points to place 5th in the 22-song semi-final and qualify for the final.
In the final, it was performed twenty-first (following the
United Kingdom's James Fox with " Hold On To Our Love" and preceding Turkey's Athena with "For Real"). At the close of voting, it had received 170 points, also placing equal 5th (this time in a field of 24) and qualifying Cyprus for the final in the next Contest.
The song is a love ballad, in contrast to the pyrotechnics and dance routines typical of the Contest at the time of its performance. Andreas performed it on stage unaccompanied by any other singers or musicians, earning a comparison to
Barbra Streisandby one broadcaster.
Lyrically, it is a confession to her lover that "my love grows stronger every minute".
