Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day
Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

Sunset doesn't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up and must be leaving
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

All things must pass
None of life's strings can last
So, I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away

I have a story about this song... Back in the day when Coyote FM was new and the programmer was playing things like "Come and Go Blues" by Gregg Allman and "Illinois" by Dan Fogelberg, I was invited to provide music for the station, so I delivered some pretty good stuff. Got to know the programmer, we exchanged e-mail addresses, and one day, I was having a pretty bad time. My brother was in the hospital, right in the middle of a refinance and a remodel that I had to handle because of his incapacitation, and I was working at a full-time job, too. I sort of snapped, and e-mailed the programmer-friend, telling him about what I was going through. He said, "Listen at noon."  So I did, and he played this song, with the dedication, "To my friend, who's handling a lot now. Music can help anyone get through anything."

I never forgot that. I don't know where my friend is now, but every time I hear this song, I think of him, of what I was going through, and how I got through it. I know the time will come when I can just listen to this song and love it on its own merits, and not because of anything else attached to it.
 
Thank you again for sharing that, Cynaera...  we all miss you so very much...  everybody in my hotel room loves this incredible song more than zesty pussy pickles...  this song is soooo good it puts a spring in our step this new winter day...  we be dancing like happy hippies...  love sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll...
Lovely lyrics.  Just what I need on a dreary Monday.

. . . I am preparing a meal for a second date with a beautiful lady. I was standing over the sink staring off into the distance thinking about how my marriage ended two years ago and how I am finally ready to entertain another person after what was, for what seemed like forever, a long, sad, slow recovery. "How could it have ended?", I briefly mused....
Then this song came on.
Asked and answered. Let go and let God (or "Source" in my case)
Back to the food. Glorious days ahead. No guarantees, just possibilities.
 
With all the nasty, negative stuff that shows up on these boards, it's nice to read a comment like this.
Thanks, passion8.
Absolutely brilliant.  Miss you, George.
George .... Ahhh .   
Okay, TMI warning!

First triple album I ever bought. Great song. George was finally able to put more than a couple of songs on a record! He had a lot of music, ready to release, upon Beatles break up.
{#Meditate}
I really like this routine of playing something from ATMP on Sat. mornings.  Just like last weekend, listening to GH while drinking my Sat. am cappuccino.  A great way to start the weekend, reminding me that life is good. 
Great song. One of the great albums, more than a mere sum of its musical parts. 
George's best work this album; would love hear 'Isn't It A Pity'.
9 —> 10. Thank you, George.

This song is soooo good it puts a spring in my step this spring night...

 
I could have easily enjoyed a couple more life-times of George's music. Loved the Wilbury's and
wonder what was inspiration triggered End Of The Line . George always traveled with at least two and
often more ukuleles in the trunk of his car. He pulled into Petty's drive one day and told Tom to pick out
one of the uku's, but Petty said " I don't know how to play one of those" George said " Hey no problem, I'll teach you, grab one," so Petty did, and after an hour of so Petty had picked up the chord patterns and they were jamming away. Tom said from that day on "he" never went anywhere without a uku in his trunk.

Cheers George. Saw your son and his new band recently.  You should be proud.

Much wisdom in such a simple statement...
Where did those 40 years go? All things have passed.

Story:  My radio-programmer friend played this song on the radio right after I'd lost a dear friend to cancer. He didn't know, but I e-mailed him, and he apologized. I fwapped him, we met for drinks and talked about my friend, and the music. He confessed that "All Things Must Pass" was one of his favorite songs and he built song-sets around it because it lent itself to sorrow and hope.

So - I can't listen to it without being very ambiguous about how I feel. It makes me cry, but it also inspires a sense of positivity. I hate this song.  I love this song.

Today, I love it, because I can feel positive about the immediate future of me. As I type this, I have five cats sacked out around the bedroom, the sun is still shining, the chirdies are burping, and tomorrow's dinner is planned. And RP is playing some very amazing music.

It must be said, this has got to be the world's weirdest-slash-most spiritually profound breakup song... Doesn't keep it from being a 10, of course.

As I remember it, All Things Must Pass was a triple album when it was first released.  I remember being blown away by how much music George must have been storing up, either on paper or in his head, before he finally got the chance to get it all down in a studio.  A tremendous outpouring that, infortunately, he never equaled again.  But we can all be grateful for this truly Magnum Opus.

The demo version of this song on Beatles Anthology 3 is something special - better than this version I think. The demo was recorded in the buildup to the White Album - really this song should have been on the White Album.
 
That demo version is something special, as are the versions of Something and While My Guitar Gently Weeps George recorded the same day - his 27th birthday, if I recall correctly.

One of the finest, if not THE finest, song comments ever. Thanks OV.



Still love it, even as things pass...




Profound...  love it...


On the All Things Must Pass album, George demonstrated his passion and musical chops as he issued a sublime collection that spanned the entire range of human emotion. Rock with the very best of them; ethereal soundscapes; melodies like spring; celebrations of love; and the tragedies of humanity — George Harrison was a true master of all of them!
A true jewel of the sonic world!

One of the most heartfelt songs that I've ever heard.

George has that pen that writes to your soul.

This album has been one of my favorites of all the Beatles works.

Is this not a seriously re-mastered version ??

Imagine George's fate - to have learned at the feet of his peers/mentors/fellow geniouses/ legends...

Love George but remember, George had a few years of tunes that never made it onto Beatles records thanks to John and Paul's dominance. Hear a couple of demos on Anthology 3.
