I love how he switches from "scared" to "scarred" in the lyrics. A minor little thing that is so majorly John. heart

It's the lyric

Hatred and jealousy, gonna be the death of me
I guess I knew it right from the start

that gets to me.  Because he was right, more or less.

The lyrics are incredibly honest by John and rip apart the notion that all was great with him in '74 without Yoko.  

Sing out about love and peace
Don't wanna see the red raw meat
The green eyed goddamn straight from your heart

I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired
Of being so alone
No place to call my own
Like a rollin' stone

It's one of my favourites, if going with the 'Anthology' take where you can hear a brutally bare John vocal not buried in the mix.

That lyric has always stayed with me. Also “I just manage to survive, I just wanna stay alive.”

I love this song and the way it peaks at key moments. The themes also resonate with me. As humans we are scared of being alone, and we’re emotionally scarred. But we really shouldn’t worry too much because “it is what it is.”

I have always loved this song, ever since I first listened to it. It makes me feel... un-alone. I'm not the only one who gets scared.
