Hey guys! I know I haven't been around for awhile, but I just wanted to pop in and ask a question. I've been stuck on this chorus, thinking it sounds like a solo Lennon tune, and I just can't figure out which.

I'm thinking it almost sounds like John's demo Real Life, which turned into Real Love and I'm Stepping Out. But I'm not quite sure...

Anyone have any other ideas?

No one wants to play? Arghhh...this is driving me insane. It's particularly the part where he sings, "Fingers dimming the lights." It sounds just like a part of a Lennon song.

I'm thinking maybe (Just Like) Starting Over. I know there's a Lennon tune that sounds more like it.

Wait! As I was typing I might have it. It could be How? from his Imagine album.

I don't expect you... to understand after you've caused so much pain. But then again, you're just a human... a victim of the insane.

I'm not hearing it with How?

Erghh...I think I'm just going to give up and say it reminds me of Real Life. Thank you for helping, though!

It is a pain, @kedame. I've tried it against a few things and have decided it's Lennonesque, but nothing too specific. I had the same problem with this:
