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 needs 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

I don't know how
You were diverted
You were perverted, too
I don't know how
You were inverted
No one alerted you

I look from the wings
At the play you are staging
While my guitar gently weeps
As I'm sitting here
Doing nothing but aging
Still, my guitar gently weeps...

    General CommentNo, it's not cool. This is one of their best songs and it's so under rated.
    I prefer this version to the one in studio, there's more to it.

    General Commentalone a lover finds himself in a dichotomos situation- he's in love and repulsed at the same time. Stroming his guitar softly, slowly, sadly.
