a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Which reminds me of those who thought that the "Dont be long" coda of Blue Jay Way was actually a message of encouragement from the Beatles for hippies and the like to drop out of society and its way of life - "dont belong".

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris)

We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know-they can't see-are you one of them?
When you've seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there-
And the time will come when you see
we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

I've always loved the lyrics to "Within You Without You." I looooove how insightful George is in this a-hard-days-night-george-4 

I like The Beatles.

There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All this places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more
In my life-- I love you more

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.

Ben Remon mentioned the "and it doesnt really matter" section of Fixing A Hole. Well Fixing A Hole was on in the car yesterday and it reminded me of the line "Im taking the time for a number of things that werent important yesterday". I think thats fantastic; the normalities of life that have to be dealt with.

Fixing A Hole is one of those songs i rarely choose to play but its always a joy and delight to hear it.

Agreed wholeheartedly, that's a wonderfully thoughtful and witty verse. Also love the stream of word play in Fixing A Hole- "and it really doesn't matter, if I'm wrong I'm right, where I belong I'm right, where I belong!" Makes sense wherever you want to split up the sentences and creates multiple layers of meaning and contradiction in the line. And the bold, spiritual, mantraic statements of Because- very "mother earth."

That line from Fixing a Whole is one of my favorites! I've heard before that Mal helped Paul with the lyrics of Fixing A Hole, and he was paid for it, but he didn't get a writing credit. I've always hoped it wasn't that line that is supposedly by Mal because I selfishly would love it if Paul was responsible for one of my favorite lyrics.

I also love "No one I think is in my tree," because it appeals to my ego...
