Music Monday # 10: While My Guitar Gently Weeps – The Beatles


Like last week's Music Monday post, this is another song that I have loved my whole life.  It is a brilliantly haunting song that was released on The Beatles’ White Album in 1968.  I’m not certain which is the better album but I would say that The White Album and Help! are my favourites.
I don’t know why this song haunts me so… it just gives me a feeling of someone standing on the outside looking in at the world.  Everything carries on as normal but one thing, his heartache, remains the same.  I’ll have to go listen to happy songs now to dispel the sadness!
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 need sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know why nobody told you
how to unfold you 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
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
I look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps
Oh, oh, oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah
