The lyric “watching her eyes and hoping I’m always there” is contrasted by For No One ‘s “no sign of love behind the tears”, which happens to be a later track on Revolver . What are our thoughts? Does this seem like a coincidence or am I not reading too far into this?
very interesting take that I quite like– i never though of that before, how For No One could be a follow-up in a storyline involving HTE.

I think you’ve stumbled on something quite brilliant here, @thasboy .
HTAE: “Each one believing that love never dies”
FNO: “A love that should have lasted years”
HTAE: “I need my love to be here”
FNO: Still “you need her”, but “she no longer needs you”. Heartbreaking!

I think it's great you're going through a phase,
and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

Another way For No One comes off as the follow-up to Here, There, And Everywhere is the arrangement. On HTAE, you have lush harmonies and the progression goes up from G to Am to Bm to C but on For No One , it’s just Paul with Ringo on drums and Alan Civil on French horn and it goes down from B Gb/Bb Abm Gb E G B.
If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

I’ve always liked this song, but someone pointed out the structure (possibly in McCartney 3, 2, 1?) where the first verse is “here”, the second is “there” and the third is “everywhere” and that made me fall in love with it.
More recently I’ve been thinking about the third person in this song (someone is speaking), and the fact that it *really* sounds like he saying “watching their eyes” (both times). It occurred to me that there could be another pattern in the verses: I, both, each (1, 2, 3).

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney
