Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right
Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right
Little darling, the smiles returning to their faces
Little darling, it seems like it's years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
It's all right, it's all right

    MemoryThis song is nothing but comfort for me. It was the first song I ever heard, my mom would sing it to me when I had a bad dream, and the night my dad moved out when my parent's divorce was final, I listened to this on the cassette player. Now it's one of my recovery from depression songs. I'm not fully recovered, in fact I just started treatment, but this song makes me smile with the assurance that in my life the sun will come. It seems like when I'm about to fall apart, The Beatles have a song that saves me!

    General CommentI don't think this song is about summer. It's about being happy. Being sad (long cold lonely winter) and then being happy again (here comes the sun).
    A very nice tune. Love it, one of my fav from George.

    My InterpretationI love this song, it always makes me feel happy! George Harrison decided not to attend a meeting with Apple and went to Eric Claptons' house. While there he walked around the garden with one of Claptons' guitars and wrote a love song. It is about tomorrow, and the optimism it brings. It has no underlying negativity, or cryptic ideologies. It gives you a sense of something that is coming, something so clear and beneficial. Happiness.
    It is refreshing; a cold sunny morning.

    My InterpretationMy take on these lyrics is that is it a reflection on a depressive episode that was lifting and the brighter clearer future is in sight.

    General CommentWhen George wrote this song, I think what he was trying to say that every new day brings a chance to start all over and forget the mistakes you made in the past, and that anyone has this opportunity. George talks about winter and the cold and it seems to me that those represent the hardships that he's ready to leave behind to start a new

    General CommentI can't stop listening to this song lately.

    I am going through a huge spiritual awakening. After years of addiction, self will and turning my back on God, I have finally let him into my life. And He is working miracles.

    This song captures it all for me. After that long, cold, dark spiritual winter - the sun (Son?) is finally peeking through. I feel that ice is slowly melting. It feels like years since it's been here. The warmth, the hope, the optimism - all returning like Spring after a cold winter. After all the years of worry, anxiety, self-will, resentment, anger, fear - I have turned my life over to God. And - like George Harrison said - I finally feel like "it's allright".

    General CommentGeorge was getting sick of the music business. it had lost its fun with everyone telling him to "play this, sign this, do this." he wanted a break, so he went to his good friend eric clapton's house to relax. he borrowed one of erics acoustic guitars and went for a walk in the garden. he strummed a chord, looked up into the sky just as a cloud passed away from the sun, and said to the sun "here comes the sun and its alright."

    General CommentI know this song is about all the great things everyone else has mentioned... but ever since my daughter was born, I have automatically always personally thought of this song being about her. Her smile is perfection and I feel like I am looking at the sun whenever I see her little face light up.

    MemoryThis song reminds me of my friends' mom, Angie. She LOVED this song. When she passed away a little over a year ago, it was one of the hardest things in life for me. First funeral I've ever been to. They also played this at her funeral. Even though it makes sad to know she's gone, but I'll definitely never forget her. Now, I think of it in a good way. Remind myself of all the memories I have of her. It brings me to tears, because I can still hear her voice, her laugh. They're happy tears, though. She was such a beautiful woman. I miss seeing her little short self, hearing her jokes, seeing her smile, & even saying my name. I can still hear it. I just know she's in a better place jamming out with some of The Beatles, living the dream. :) So, R.I.P. Angelia Cooper. Love & miss you. Gone but never forgotten. You'll forever be my always.
