about

A simple, swingin' rendition of the classic Gershwin tune that speaks to the eternal love of family. Its little-known backstory only adds to the poignant sweetness of the composition:
"Among the Gershwin brothers’ hundreds of hit songs from the great jazz age, “Love Is Here to Stay” is perhaps the most poignant... It was George‘s last composition. He died prematurely in July of 1937 at the age of 38, and Ira completed the lyrics alone. Using his beloved brother’s last score, he wrote a love song expressing his grief at the loss of his brother, his partner and his friend, creating the cherished song that we know today."

lyrics

OUR LOVE IS HERE TO STAY
Written by George and Ira Gershwin

****

It’s very clear
Our love is here to stay
Not for a year
But ever and a day
The radio and the telephone
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies,
And in time may go

But, oh my dear,
Our love is here to stay
Together we’re
Going a long, long way
In time the Rockies may crumble,
Gibralter may tumble,
They’re only made of clay,
But our love is here to stay.
