In 1998, on London Weekend Television, the Bee Gees performed five of their most renowned and well liked songs including: "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart". The DVD recording of this performance was then featured on the Bee Gees album "Number Ones", which was a tribute album to Maurice Gibb, one of the Bee Gees, who died in 2003.

Lyrics:

I can think of younger days when living for my life
Was everything a man could want to do.
I could never see tomorrow, but I was never told about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend a this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees
And misty memories of days gone by
We could never see tomorrow, noone said a word about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again

History: (from Wikipedia)
"How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?" is a song released by the Bee Gees in 1971. The song had been written by Barry and Robin Gibb in August 1970, when the Gibb brothers had reconvened following a period of break-up and alienation. They said that they originally offered it to Andy Williams, but ultimately the Bee Gees recorded it themselves and included it on their 1971 album, Trafalgar.

The song was recorded on January 28, 1971, in London. The instrumental track is: Barry Gibb (guitar), Maurice Gibb (guitar, piano, bass guitar), possibly Alan Kendall (guitar), and Geoff Bridgeford (drums), with strings and woodwinds arranged and conducted by Bill Shepherd. The vocals are by Robin (solo in the opening verse), Barry (solo in choruses and second verse), and Maurice (joins Barry and Robin in harmony on choruses). It was released as a single in May 1971 ahead of the album. The B side was a non-album song "Country Woman", written by Maurice Gibb, recorded April 6 by Maurice (guitar, piano, bass guitar), Kendall (guitar), Bridgeford (drums), and Shepherd (string and horn arrangement).

Al Green covered the track on his 1972 album Let's Stay Together. The song was also covered by Michael Bublé in 2003, with Barry Gibb performing back-up vocals, on his self-titled album Michael Bublé. Bublé's version reached the Top 30 of the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart. Jazz singer/pianist Diana Krall has not recorded this song, but has been performing it as an encore during her 2007 tour.

The song failed to chart in the UK Singles Chart, but it was the Bee Gees first U.S. Number one on the Billboard Hot 100,the song also reached #4 on the Billboard Easy Listening survey.
