Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love
God bless our love

Spending our lives together
Man and wife together
World without end
World without end

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love

    General CommentThis Is an Amazing Song that, if John Had More Time to work On, could have been very succesful

    At This Point, John Was very content with being a father and Husband, and you can tell in his tone

    Also, Around the time that the Beatles Anthology Came out, Yoko Ono gave the Beatles three tapes (Free As A Bird, Real Love, And Grow Old With Me). The beatles added to the first two, but felt that the later was two person to work with...

    Beatiful John, God Bless

    General CommentI really love this song! It's so great. I think it's underrated. I was really impressed because John turned out to be a good father. He really loved Sean. I guess he did it because he had regrets with Julian.

    God bless, John.

    My InterpretationI think this song can be interpreted in more than one way, which is the beauty of John Lennon music. Most people know that John Lennon (at least in his earlier years) was an advocate for drugs like marijuana, magic mushrooms, and LSD. And to an audience of people who have taken psychedelics like LSD and shrooms (like me) the lyrics may seem to allude to the feelings you get from an "enlightening" experience one can have while on these drugs. For instance the lyric, "When our time has come/ We will be as one" can be seen as meaning that after death our spirits will be one again and that we are all infact the same entity devided into human bodies while on this planet. I have no doubt in my mind that John Lennon, with the number of times he experimented with psychedelics, had the same enlightening experience as me, especially since he was reading "The Psychedelic Experience" by Timothy Leary, which is all about life after death and taking psychedelics to see "the truth". This could seem like over-interpretaion but I think John was suggesting that even after all those years since his first enlightening experience, he hasnt forgotten it and still believes it.....I'm not insane, lol, I just like psychedelics.

    General CommentA tune definitely on par with his best during his Beatle days. It also succeeds where many of Paul's lovely post-Beatle songs fail - that being Paul's tendency toward schmaltzy goofy lyrics. That was alway the good thing about John - he didn't just keep cramming the airwaves with any tune or lyric he came up with. He admitted to not being as prolific as Paul. But Paul would frequently put something out when, perhaps, he shouldn't have.

    Yes, a great tune that didn't quite get realized. I was hoping that Paul would have selected this one as among those he would flesh out a bit more during that semi-Beatle reunion in the late '90s. Alas. As it stands on its own it would probably be very difficult to improve. A beautiful song! Great and very appropriate lyrics. Almost a wedding anthem!
