John Lennon / Paul McCartney
For No One (1966)

 

Your day breaks, your mind aches

 

You find that all her words

 

of kindness linger on

4

When she no longer needs you

 

She wakes up, she makes up

 

She takes her time and doesnít

 

feel she has to hurry

8

She no longer needs you

   
 

And in her eyes, you see nothing

 

No sign of love behind the tears

 

Cried for no one

12

A love that should have lasted years

   
 

You want her, you need her

 

And yet you donít believe her

 

When she says her love is dead

16

You think she needs you

   
 

And in her eyes, you see nothing

 

No sign of love behind the tears

 

Cried for no one

20

A love that should have lasted years

   
 

You stay home, she goes out

 

She says that long ago she knew someone

 

but now heís gone

24

She doesnít need him

 

your day breaks, your mind aches

 

There will be times when all the things

 

she said will fill your head

28

You wonít forget her

   
 

And in her eyes, you see nothing

 

No sign of love behind the tears

 

Cried for no one

32

A love that should have lasted years
