The Lyrics

I got the idea to write this after seeing what turned out to be the final performance of another song Jerry did, "Let It Be Me", with his long time singing partner, Betty Everett, who had passed away shortly after the performance. I was never sure how he took that news, so I decided to rewrite one of his own hits.
I don't know you, but I love you
Come to me and let me mend your heart
I just want to take care of you
From your side I will never part

Jerry dear, I know you're grieving
For your lost beloved friend
But listen up, to what I'm saying
I know the love you two had will never end

I know...

I can love you like she loved you
You won't always have a broken heart
She don't want you to be so blue
For one end there's a brand new start

Now, for all those times you sang together
Just keep them close, and she's always there
So, for those times whenever you miss her
Close your eyes and keep her in your prayers.

But wait!

So when you're on that stage alone, dear
And feel your singing days are through
When you hear that song, go on and sing it
I'll be there to sing with you
