The song is a ballad, with Rieu greeting "the great artist" and reminding him or her that it is time to get to work painting. The artist is also described as an author, an illusionist and an actor.
Rieu recorded the song in no less than six languages; French, English (as "Live for Love"), German (with the French title "Vive l'amour", translated: "Long Live Love"), Spanish ("Dios te guarde buen artista"), Italian ("Buongiorno artista") and Japanese ("Soyokaze no okurimono").
