Brooks was at the top of his vocal game throughout the video making for an exquisite performance Whitley surely would be proud of. He stayed true to the original, performing the ballad and acoustically radiated intimacy throughout the theatre.
The heartbreaking love ballad tells the story of a man in love with a woman who is still trapped in the memories of her past relationship, escaping into thoughts of him every time she closes her eyes. The man begs her “Don’t close your eyes, let it be me…Let yesterday go and you’ll find more love than you’ll ever know.”
