The words are purely inspirational and were given to me - except for maybe one or two where I had to resolve a line or something like that. I don't own it; it came through like that.
 

 

John Lennon - Anthology


I've always wondered what he meant by that, like he's a medium or something? Regardless, they are incredible lyrics and arguably Johns best with the Beatles or maybe ever.

I'm sorry but what song is this about?

Welcome.

 

I never understood "It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out." Was John trying to be someone he wasn't?

Maybe he meant being a Beatle, it's getting hard to be someone, or separate of the four. In his Rolling Stone interview in 1970 he talks about how the Beatles were sort of four parts of the same mind, but around the time he wrote Strawberry Fields, they were all going in separate directions and John was probably the cognoscente in terms of realizing their eventual breakup. It's getting hard to be someone (within the Beatles), but it all works out (fame, success, etc), it doesn't matter much to me (at the time, but Yoko definitely changed his mind.)

I was listening "For No One" today in traffic jam, and I realized how sad and hard are the words:

"SHE TAKES HER TIME AND DOESNT FEEL SHE HAS TO HURRY

SHE NO LONGER NEEDS YOU"...

 

Total indifference...

I've always felt that about someone I don't know.

Friend: What is it Prudence? Take care of your kids, look after your husband, what?

Prudence: You WILL play Octopus Gardan at my funeral! I dont care about that other crap.
