While My Guitar Gently Weeps

We were talking – about the space between us all
And the people – who hide themselves behind a
   wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth – then it’s far too late –
   when they pass away.

One of the most overlooked songwriters of this century has passed. Of course he was overlooked only because there were two pretty good songwriters in his group also. I loved his music and how much of his soul he put into it. I am very sad today.

Within You Without You by George Harrison (1967)

We were talking – about the space between us all
And the people – who hide themselves behind a
   wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth – then it’s far too late –
   when they pass away.

We were talking – about the love we all could
   share – when we find it
To try our best to hold it there – with our love
With our love – we could save the world – if
   they only knew.

Try to realize it’s all within yourself no-one else
   can make you change
And to see you’re really only very small,
   and life flows on within you and without you.

We were talking – about the love that’s gone so
   cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul –
   they don’t know – they can’t see – are you one
   of them?

When you’ve seen beyond yourself – then you
   may find, peace of mind is waiting there –
And the time will come when you see
   we’re all one, and life flows on within you and
   without you.
