"If You Knew" as written by and Nina Simone....
If you knew how I miss you,
You would not stay away today.
Don't you know how I need you?
Stay here, my dear, with me.

I need you here beside me,
Forever and a day, a day.
Together, never parted,
Just you, just me, my love.

I can't go on without you.
Your love is all I?m living for.
I love all things about you.
Your heart, your soul, my love.

I can't go on without you,
Forever and a day, a day.
I need you here beside me,
Forever and a day, a day.
And no one else besides me.
I love you, I love you, I do.
I do.

    General Commenthe sings with such passion! and it's even more meaningful because i can hear jeff actually misses the tune at about 2:42 and i just love it. he was absolutely perfect but this one time you can actually hear it and it's so special because you realize that even the his mistakes are so precious and one of a kind and i miss him so much more...it's so unfair that he didn't get chance to record more. absolutely brilliant artist...

    General CommentOne of my favorite of his live songs.

    Beautiful because of the emotion conveyed and as Kresju said, because of the little idiosyncrasies.

    Love how the last line, "I love you, I do", was sung. Gorgeous. :)

    My InterpretationI think the line in the last stanza
    that is written here as
    "and no one else besides me"
    is actually
    "i know what air betides me"

    what do you think?
