all George Harrison lyrics



Cloud 9
Have my love
It fits you like a glove
Join my dream, tell me yes
Bail out should there be a mess
The pieces you don't need are mine

Take my time
I'll show you cloud nine
Take my smile and my heart
They were yours from the start
The pieces to omit are mine

Have my love
Use it while it does you good
Share my highs but the times
That it hurts pay no mind
The pieces you don't need are mine

I'll see you there on cloud nine

Take my hope
Maybe even share a joke
If there's good to be shown
You may make it all your own
And if you want to quit that's fine
While you're out looking for cloud nineback to top
That's What It Takes
And now it begins to shine
And you found the eyes to see
Each little drop at dawn of ev'ry day

Your smile, it comes back to me
And whatever you may say
Don't let it stop, never fade away

As we got to get out in this world together, oh
Doesn't really matter if we start to make some changes, oh

If that's what it takes (that's what it takes)
Then I've got to be strong (that's what it takes)
Don't want to be wrong
If that's what it takes

The closer I get (that's what it takes)
Into that open door (what it takes)
I've got to be sure
If that's what it takes

And now that it's shining through
And you can see all this world
Don't let it stop, never fade away

If we got to be in this life forever, oh-oh
Then we'd better be taking all the chances, oh oh

If that's what it takes (that's what it takes)
Then I've got to be strong (that's what it takes)
Don't want to be wrong
If that's what it takes

The closer I get (that's what it takes)
Into that open door (what it takes)
I've got to be sure
If that's what it takes

That's what it takes, that's what it takes
That's what it takes, that's what it takes
(that's) what it takes, that's what it takes
That's what it takes, (that's) what it takes
That's what it takes, oh, that's what it takes

Fish on the Sand
I know you're in the sun
I know you're close to ev'ryone
At times it's like you don't have a hold on me

I see you in the love
I see you in the moon above
But I want to know that you're not lost inside of me

You know I need you
You know I love you
If I'm not with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm like a fish on the sand

You call me in the night (you call me in the night)
And hide behind the daylight
You're blowing like a wind, you don't let me see

You know I feel a pain (you know I feel a pain)
I'm tired of playing games with you
Though there's nothing else I want that would set me free

You know I love you
You know I need you
If I can't be with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm a fish on the sand

No use to no one else, they've all dried up
Watching all our lives go by
I can't believe you'd want to see me crying

I hold you in my heart (hold you in my heart)
I know that you're a part of me
But it's a must to know that you love me too

I look you in the eye (look you in the eye)
You're swimming by my teardrops
But I want to know for sure that you'll let me see

You know I want you
You know I need you
If I'm not with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm like a fish on the sand

You know I need you
You know I love you
If I'm not with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm a fish on the sand

Not so much of a man
More a fish on the sandback to top
Just for Today
Just for today
I could try to live through this day only
Not deal with all life's problems
Just for today

If just for one night
I could feel not sad and lonely
Not be my own life's problem
Just for one night

If just (for) today
I could try to live through this day only
Not deal with all life's problems
Just for today

If just for one night
I could feel not sad and lonely
Not be my own life's problem
Just for one night

Just for today
I could try to live through this day only
Not deal with all life's problems

This Is Love
Precious words drift away from their meaning
And the sun melts the chill from our lives
Helping us all to remember what we came here for
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love

Little things that will change you forever
May appear from way out of the blue
Making fools of ev'rybody who don't understand
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love

This is love, this is love
This is love, this is la la la-la love

Since our problems have been our own creation
They also can be overcome
When we use the power provided free to everyone
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love

This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love
Oh, this is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love (repeat and fade)back to top
When We Was Fab
Back then long time ago when grass was green
Woke up in a daze
Arrived like stangers in the night
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - back when income tax was all we had

Caresses fleeced you in the morning light
Casualties at dawn
And we did it all
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - you are my world you are my only love

And while you're in this world
The fuzz gonna come and claim you
But you mo better wise
When the buzz gonna come and take you away
Take you away
Take you away

The microscopes that magnified the tears
Studied warts and all
Still the life flows on and on
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - but it's all over now baby blue
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - like this pullover you sent to me

Fab
And you've really got a hold me
Fab - long time ago when we was fabback to top
Devil's Radio
Devil's radio

Gossip, gossip
Gossip, gossip

I heard it in the night
Words that thoughtless speak
Like vultures swooping down below
On the devil's radio

I hear it through the day
Airwaves gettin' filled
With gossip broadcast to and fro
On the devil's radio

Oh yeah, gossip
Gossip, oh yeah

He's in the clubs and bars
And never turns it down
Talking about what he don't know
On the devil's radio

He's in your tv set
Won't give it a rest
That soul betraying so and so
The devil's radio

Gossip, gossip
Gossip, gossip
(oh yeah) gossip, (gossip) oh yeah
(gossip) oh yeah, (oh yeah) gossip

It's white and black like industrial waste
Pollution of the highest degree
You wonder why I don't hang out much
I wonder how you can't see

He's in the films and songs
And on all your magazines
It's everywhere that you may go
The devil's radio

Oh yeah, gossip
Gossip, oh yeah

Runs thick and fast, no one really sees
Quite what bad it can do
As it shapes you into something cold
Like an eskimo igloo

It's all across our lives
Like a weed it's spread
'till nothing else has space to grow
The devil's radio

Can creep up in the dark
Make us hide behind shades
And buzzing like a dynamo
The devil's radio

(gossip) oh yeah, (gossip) oh yeah
(gossip) gossip, (gossip) gossip
Oh yeah, gossip I heard you on satan's wireless
Gossip, oh yeah you know the devil's radio, child
Gossip, gossip

Someplace Else
(someplace else)

You got into my life
I don't know how you found me, but you did
It stopped me heading someplace else

Took me a while to say
Wish you belong to me
But now I'm saddened like I've never been
Regretting that we'll leave

And for a while you could comfort me
And hold me for some time
I need you now to be beside me
While all my world is so untidy

Loneliness (oh-o-oh)
Empty faces (oh-o-oh)
Wish I could leave them all (o-oh)
In someplace else

(someplace else)

I hope you won't let go
Maybe you'll let me know
That you'll be saddened like you've never been
Regretting that we'll leave

And for a while I could comfort you
And hold you in my mind
I need you now to be beside me
While all my world is sad and crazy

Loneliness (oh-o-oh)
Empty faces (oh-o-oh)
Wish I could leave them all (o-oh)
In someplace else

And for a while you could comfort me
And hold me for some time
I need you now to be beside me
While all my world is so untidy

Loneliness (oh-o-oh)
Empty faces (oh-o-oh)
Wish I could leave them all (o-oh)
In someplace else

Loneliness (oh-o-oh)
Empty faces (oh-o-oh)
Wish I could leave them all (o-oh)
In someplace else

(someplace else)

I think I'm gonna leave them all
In someplace else

Wreck of the Hesperus
I'm not the wreck of the hesperus
Feel more like the wall of china
Getting old as methuselah
Feel tall as the eiffel tower

I'm not a power of attorney
But I can rock as good as gibraltar
Ain't no more no spring chicken
Been plucked but I'm still kicking
But it's alright, it's alright

Poison penmen sneak, have no nerve to speak
Make up lies then they leak 'm out
Behind a pseudonym, the rottenness in them
Reaching out trying to touch me

Met some oscars and tonys
I slipped on a pavement oyster
Met a snake climbing ladders
Got out of the line of fire
(but it's alright)

Brainless writers gossip nonsenses
To others heads as dense as they is
It's the same old malady
What they see is faulty

I'm not the wreck of the hesperus
Feel more like big bill broonzy
Getting old as my mother
But I tell you I got some company
(but it's alright)

But it's alright, it's alright
But it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, alright
It's alrightback to top
Breath Away from Heaven
In another life
I woke up dreaming with a sigh
As the morning light
Was painting whispers of a joy

And I was in the candlelit bedroom
Enchanting beauty shimmering magically
Like an irridescent cloud
Being blown by a westerly wind

She can move your soul without you knowing
She can take your breath away from heaven

And I was captured by her loneliness
A wounded tiger on a willowy path
Like an opalescent moon all alone
In the sky of a foreign land

She can take your breath away from heaven
She can move your soul without you knowing
She can take your breath away from heaven
She is like an everlasting blossom
She can take your breath away from heavenback to top
