about

"Terry Turtle's song "I Wish She Loved Me" was the last song he ever heard on Earth. He asked to hear it during our final visit with him in the hospital. When we were getting ready for his memorial show in NYC, Alethea wanted to cover it and asked if we could sing it as a duet. She put together the music and we both sing Terry's lyrics. We hope he can hear us while he's suspended in the stars."

lyrics

I WISH SHE LOVED ME (T. Turtle)

IN THE NIGHT WHEN SHADOWS STEAL
MY SOUL IS GONE
I FEEL THE CHILL
ME AND MY GUITAR
WILL KEEP ON MAKING LOVE
LATER I’LL PAY THE BILL

I’M JUST A ROCKER WITHOUT A PLAN
AND TENDERNESS IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND
TIME IS FLEECING
I AM ALONE
I CAN COUNT TWO WISHES ON MY HAND:

I WISH SHE LOVED ME
AND I COULD MAKE IT TO HEAVEN
I WISH SHE LOVED ME

I WISH FOR A LOT OF THINGS
WISH I WERE YOUNGER
I HAD MORE BRAINS
WISH I COULD HOLD HER EVERY RAINY NIGHT
BUT I’LL NEVER BE THE LUCKY MAN

I’M JUST A ROCKER WITHOUT A PLAN
AND TENDERNESS IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND
TIME IS FLEECING
I AM ALONE
BUT I CAN COUNT TWO WISHES ON MY HAND:

I WISH SHE LOVED ME
AND I COULD MAKE IT TO HEAVEN
I WISH SHE LOVED ME
