In my life


There are places I'll remember

All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

'I've always considered my work one piece
and I consider that my work won't be finished
until I am dead and buried
and I hope that's a long, long time'


Mother


Mother, you had me but I never had you

I wanted you, you didn't want me
So I, I just gotta tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Father, you left me but I never left you
I needed you, you didn't need me
So I, I just gotta tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Children, don't do what I have done
I couldn't walk and I tried to run
So I, I just gotta tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Mamma, don't go
Daddy, come home


God

 

God is a concept
By which we measure our pain
I'll say it again, God is a concept
By which we measure our pain

I don't believe in magic, I don't believe in I-ching
I don't believe in Bible, I don't believe in tarot
I don't believe in Hitler, I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in Kennedy, I don't believe in Buddha
I don't believe in Mantra, I don't believe in Gita
I don't believe in Yoga, I don't believe in kings
I don't believe in Elvis, I don't believe in Zimmerman
I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me
Yoko and me and that's reality

The dream is over, what can I say?
The dream is over yesterday
I was the dreamweaver but now I'm reborn
I was the walrus but now I'm John

And so dear friends, you'll just have to carry on
The dream is over

 


Imagine


Imagine there's no heaven

It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
No religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one


Op 8 december 1980, om 22u50, werd John Lennon bij zijn aankomst aan zijn appartementsgebouw in 72nd Street door vier kogels neergeschoten. Wegens het hevige bloeden kon geen hulp meer baten. Hij overleed enkele minuten na aankomst in het ziekenhuis.

Ev'rybody's talking about

Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism

This-ism, that-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m

All we are saying is give peace a chance
