For No One

Allegedly, Paul McCartney wrote this song sitting in a chalet while on holiday with his girlfriend Jane Asher in Klosters, Switzerland, March of 1966. The working title was “Why Did It Die?”, and there is speculation that McCartney wrote the song about Asher, who was a successful London actress. The theory is that Paul wanted her to cater to his schedule, tour with him, and be the “perfect Beatle wife,” but Jane had a life and career of her own, hence the “She doesn’t need you” lyrics. Paul has never said it was about Jane specifically, however he did say, “I guess there had been an argument. I never have easy relationships with women.” He knew what he was getting into when he got involved with Jane, and being that the song was written in 1966 and they didn’t break up until 1968, it’s likely that if the song was about Jane, it wasn’t a serious argument.

This was recorded on May 9, 16 and 19, 1966 by only two Beatles – Paul singing and playing the keyboard and bass, and Ringo on percussion, originally appeared on The Beatles’ seventh album, Revolver. McCartney used this song in his 1984 movie Give My Regards to Broad Street.

John Lennon at some point said that this was his favorite McCartney song.

For No One is such a beautiful song with a touch of a melancholic lonely feel to it. A brilliant example of true ballad writing.

Enjoy!

Lyrics

The day breaks, your mind aches
You find that all her 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 her 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 says 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 times when all the things she said will fill your head
You won’t forget her

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

Pennywise – My God

My God Lyrics:
People on the street they wannna find a god they’ll never know,
Organized religion pulls the blinds then they pull the wool,
They open up your head, they’re fuckin’ with your mind,
Now you can’t see because you’re blind
You try to make amends but your heads still spinnin’ round,
The church of Jesus Christ said it’s time, don’t fuck around,
You wanna go to heaven, you see it isn’t free, give your money up to me
My god is not the one that you wanna see, your god is a mirage,
A conspiracy, you pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin’,
Scared to death so your money you’ll be givin’, yeah

Holier than thou with your one way morality,
I think your shallow faith isn’t based in reality,
You don’t like how were live, we’re sinful and obscene,
Why are you judgin’ me?
You’re richer than God but you’re cryin’ out for more,
You’re livin’ like a king while you steal from the poor,
Wanna be forgiven, get on your knees and pray,
Send in your cash and be saved

My god is not the one that you wanna see,
Your god is a mirage, a conspiracy,
You pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin’,
Scared to death so your money you’ll be givin’,
Yeah, better hope you’ve been chosen to be saved

Cause your empathy only goes so far today
Pay no mind to those in pain if you just want the souls
Who are willing to pay
Their way, your god’s not for me

My god is not the one that you wanna see,
Your god is a mirage, a conspiracy,
You pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin’,
Scared to death so your money you’ll be givin’,
Yeah, my god is not the one that you wanna see,
Your god is a mirage, a conspiracy,
You pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin’,
Scared to death so your money you’ll be givin’,
Yeah, stop
