The songs features no drumming but relies on various melodic resources such as orchestral strings, classical guitar and a music box. Lyrics talk about a short-lived love (referenced by "she had been mine for a day") for a girl called Aubrey and furthermore Gates' like for that name. It's regarded as one of Bread's most beautiful yet melancholic songs. The song was later recorded (1973) by Perry Como and released on his And I Love You So album of covered songs.
