I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

Well...

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, ooh

Sounds like a bad cover by some random band
Actually... I'm pretty sure this is NOT beatles..
Are you telling me that the singer is any beatles member? It's not
Bill check it :) 

 

In its defense, it sounds way better after a few drinks with acrobats flying all over the place.

Way to mess up a pretty song.

Right MassivRuss! Where is Clapton's weeping guitar?

Somehow the lone voice of George, backed by a string ensemble, lends this incredible song a sense of personal poignancy--much like Paul's "Eleanor Rigby."

 
I agree.  Shows what a beautiful piece of songwriting this really is.
My favorite version of this song, without a doubt!
 
I could never make up my mind about my favorite Beatle.  Right now?  Ya, it's George. {#Hearteyes}

Sappy arrangement. I see French acrobats, not the Beatles.

 

I see sad person walking on a dismal, dark, rainy day-alone in the city.

It's ok. Wouldn't give it more than a ten though.

Overproduced.

If you like this song, you must see the show.
No comments ? How is that possible!

One best song ever, then we don't need any new comments :)
