The song deals with the ordinariness of humanity, as Arazi sings that "no man is perfect in all virtues" and tells her listeners "don't always judge him for the worse". With this in mind, she exhorts her listeners to "let him dream and give him breath", that is, to treat everyone with dignity. Musically, the song is perhaps best known for its final chorus. Beginning at a slow tempo, the song builds to a fast-paced conclusion.
The song was performed eighth on the night (following the Netherlands' Gerard Joling with "Shangri-La" and preceding Switzerland's entry and winning song "Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi"), sung by Celine Dion. At the close of voting, it had received 85 points, placing 7th in a field of 21.
