"For No One" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Your day breaks, your mind aches
You find that all the words of kindness linger on
When she no longer needs you

She wakes up, she makes up
She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years!

You want her, you need her
And yet you don't believe her when she said her love is dead
You think she needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years!

You stay home, she goes out
She says that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone
She doesn't need him

Your day breaks, your mind aches
There will be time when all the things she said will fil your head
You won't forget her

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years!

    General CommentWow, after being left by someone I thought I had a future with, that I thought I meant something to, this song has become so powerful to me. It fucks you up to realize that someone that is so important to you, isn't all that interested in you anymore. Everything they said to you when you were together that made you feel so good, seems to have really meant nothing. Goddamn.

    General Commentthis song makes me cry almost everytime i play it. mainly because it reminds me of myself being the woman in the song. i worry that's (the lyrics) what my boyfriend thinks at times. it so depresses me! but it's beautiful. amazing what songs do to you, eh?

    General CommentOne of my favorite "break-up songs" and Beatles songs in general.

    There's no sentimentality behind it. It just is what it is...people in relationships change after a while and this change in feelings isn't always mutual. So you have to deal with it. But god damn does it suck.

    General CommentPossibly the second most beautiful track I've ever heard, save for The Everly Brothers' "Sweet Memories".
