Paul McCartney

For No One

Paul McCartney

Your day breaks,
Your mind aches,
You find that all her words of kindness linger on
When she no longer needs you.

She wakes up,
She makes up,
She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs you
 
And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You want her,
You need her,
And yet you don't believe her when she says her love is dead
You think she needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You stay home,
She goes out,
She says that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone
She doesn't need him

Your day breaks,
Your mind aches,
There will be times when all the things you said will fill your head
You won't forget her

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.

 

"FOR NO ONE" was first performed on Mar 25 1995 in London
