Seals & Crofts — Jessica lyrics

(lyrics by James Seals; music by James Seals and Dash Crofts, 1973)
From the albums DIAMOND GIRL (1973), APPETIZERS (1973) and

Jessica, dear Jessica, forget me not and won't you try to write to me, on your wedding day?
Jessica, dear Jessica, you'll look just like a painting in your dress of white as you walk away.
But just remember who taught you how to kiss. I'm gonna miss you.
Remember back when you were just a lonely girl, all alone in a lonely world.
Did I try to care too much, or have I lost my touch?

Jessica, dear Jessica, I'll dress in black and cry upon my pillow, when each day is through.
Jessica, my Jessica, the flowers in the fields will bow their heads today, 'cause I'm feeling blue.
But just remember who taught you how to care. And tell me where
I can find the little girl I used to know so well. Could she still be around?
I would give the world to know if she's still in town.
