"Love Is Here to Stay" is a song featured in Frank Sinatra's 1956 album Songs for Swingin' Lovers!.

History Edit

"Our Love Is Here to Stay" is a Gershwin brothers tune originally written for the movie The Goldwyn Follies. It was one of the final songs that the pair wrote together, as George Gershwin died of a brain tumor in 1937, one year before the song was published for the film.

The brothers originally titled the song "It's Here to Stay" and then "Our Love Is Here to Stay," however, when the song was finally published, it was published as "Love Is Here to Stay."[1] Several years later, Ira Gershwin wanted to change the name of the song back to feature "Our," however, due to the song's status as a standard, he decided against it.[2]

Lyrics Edit

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
Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay
