Grow Old With Me Grow old along with me The best is yet to be When our time has come We will be as one God bless our love God bless our love Grow old along with me Two branches of one tree Face the setting sun When the day is done God bless our love God bless our love Spending our lives together Man and wife together World without end World without end Grow old along with me Whatever fate decrees We will see it through For our love is true God bless our love God bless our love

about

This single was originally released to celebrate what would have been John Lennon's 80th birthday on 9th October 2020 and is now re-released on 8th December 2022 with four other Lennon songs as bonus tracks: 'Don't Let Me Down', 'Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)', 'I'm Only Sleeping' and 'Woman'. 'Grow Old With Me' has always occupied a special place in my heart. Written in summer 1980 and held back from Double Fantasy to be the centrepiece of its follow-up, Milk and Honey, the song is terribly poignant in the context of what happened in December. John didn't get the opportunity to complete more than a demo recording, yet just this rough take encapsulates the beauty of the song. I tried my best to emulate the original single vocal demo recording as much as possible.

The bonus tracks were all rehearsal takes recorded live with my Beatles tribute band, All You Need Is The Beatles.
