"Across the Universe (Beatles cover)" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
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 through my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai Guru Deva Om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

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

Jai Guru Deva Om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing
Through my open mind inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai Guru Deva Om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva

    General CommentI think Rufus did it better than The Beatles. As much as I listen to the beatles (for amusement mostly), I think Rufus did a better job. This song is awesome.

    General CommentYup. Definately a cover. But hey, this is my all time favorite Beatles song, so I pay respect to whomever can cover it-and do it well. Which he has done quite well indeed. ;)

    General Commenti'm laughing at pomegranatesROCK's comment about rufus' name. that's what i'm naming my karin terrier when i get him. ha. but anyway, this is an AMAZING cover. just as good as the beatles version. i love the emotion rufus puts into each and every word..he really paints a picture with his voice.

    General CommentThis is an awesome song, it was on the 'I Am Sam' soundtrack, and if anyone hasn't bought it yet, BUY IT, if you're a Beatles fan. The whole album is Beatles covers, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites on the album! :)
