"There, there's a place
where I can go
when I feel low
when I feel blue
And it's my mind
and there's no time
When I'm alone" 

(There's a Place - 1963)

"We were talking
about the space between us all
and people who hide themselves
behind a wall of illusion,
never glimpse the truth
then it's far too late
when they pass away

We were talking
about the love we all could share
When we find it
to try our best to hold it there
with our love, with our love
we could save the world
if they only knew

Try to realize it's all within yourself
no one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
and life flows on within you and without you

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"

(Within You, Without You - 1968)

"Life is very short and there's no time
for fussing and fighting, my friend"

(We Can Work it Out  1965)

"I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it need sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
how to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you;
they bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps"

 (While My Guitar Gently Weeps - 1968)

"Turn off your mind, relax
and float down stream
It is not dying
It is not dying

Lay down all thought
Surrender to the void
It is shining
It is shining

That you may see
The meaning of within
It is being
It is being

That love is all
And love is everyone
It is knowing
It is knowing

That ignorance and hate
May mourn the dead
It is believing
It is believing

But listen to the
color of your dreams
It is not living
It is not living

Or play the game
existence to the end
Of the beginning"

(Tomorrow never Knows - 1966)

"I've got a word or two
To say about the things that you do
You're telling all those lies
About the good things that we can have
if we close our eyes"

 (Think for Yourself - 1965)

"Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough"

 (Things We've Said Today - 1964)

"Give the word a chance to say
That the word is just a way
It's the word I'm thinking of
And the only word is love"

 (Word - 1966)

"Without going out of my door
I can know all things of earth
Without looking out of my window
I can know the ways of heaven

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Without going out of my door
You can know all things of earth
With out looking out of my window
You could know the ways of heaven

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Arrive without traveling
See all without looking
Do all without doing"

 (The Inner Light - 1968) from the Tao of Lao Tzu

"You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free your mind instead"

 (Revolution - 1968)

"From this moment on I know
exactly where my life will go.
Seems that all I really was doing
was waiting for love."

 (Real Love - 1995)

"He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere man, can you see me at all
Nowhere man don't worry
Take your time, don't hurry
Leave it all till somebody else
Lends you a hand"

 (Nowhere Man - 1965)

"And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer
Let it be
For though they may be parted there is
still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be"

 (Let it Be - 1970)

"Words are flowing out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe"

 (Across the Universe - 1968)

"All things must pass
none of life's strings can last
So I must be on my way
and face another day

Now the darkness only stays at nighttime,
in the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good
at arriving at the right time
It's not always
going to be this gray

All things must pass,
all things must pass away"

 (All Things Must Pass - 1970)

"There's nothing you can know that isn't known
Nothing you can see that isn't shown
No where you can be that isn't where you're meant to be
It's easy

All you need is love"

 (All You Need is Love - 1967)

"Whatever happened to
the life that we once knew?
Can we really live without each other?"

 (Free as a Bird- 1995)

"When I was younger, so much younger than today
I never needed anybody's help in any way
But now these days are gone
I'm not so self assured
Now I find I've changed my mind
I've opened up the doors"

(Help - 1965) 

"All through the day
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine
All through the night
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine
Now they're frightened of leaving it
Everyone's reading it
comin' on strong all the time

All through the day
I me mine"

 (I, Me, Mine - 1969)

"It's all too much for me to see
the love that's shining all around you
The more I learn, the less I know
and what I do it's all too much"

 (It's All too Much - 1967)

"And in the end, the love you take
is equal to the love you make" 

(The End - 1968)
