"I Call Your Name" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
I call your name but you're not there
Was I to blame for being unfair
Oh, I can't sleep at night
Since you've been gone
I never weep at night
I can't go on

Don't you know I can't take it
I don't know who can
I'm not going to make it
I'm not that kind of man

Oh, I can't sleep at night
But just the same
I never weep at night
I call your name

Don't you know I can't take it
I don't know who can
I'm not going to make it
I'm not that kind of man

Oh, I can't sleep at night
But just the same
I never weep at night
I call your name
I call your name
I call your name
I call your name

    General CommentI love this ong, but I prefer the Mamas and the Papas cover. I think what it's about is kinda obvious.

    General CommentHiya wok, took a while, but I just think it's about someone who's cut up about a split.

    Asking himself over and over again what he did wrong, yadaya, you get the idea.

    General CommentI like this song... but I am a fan of the earlier stuff because I like that happy-go-lucky 50s style. The style where a guy can be singing about how his girl dumped him and he wants to kill himself but the song still has an upbeat sound. I love how the guitars go from one part to the other like that, this song is hot!

    General Commentthis song perfectly sums up the way i feel about the fact that the one i love is in ireland.

    very touching song, made me cry.

    gotta love the beatles for always being there for you when you need to say something you can't.
