Within You Without You Lyrics
We were talking-about the space between us
And the people-who hide themselves behind a
wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth-then it's far too
late-when they pass away.
We were talking-about the love we all could
share-when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-with our
With our love-we could save the world-if
they only knew.
Try to realise it's all within yourself
No-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life flows within you and without you.
We were talking-about the love that's gone
so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know-they can't see-are you one
When you've seen beyond yourself-then you
may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there-
And the time will come when you see
we're all one, and life flows on within you
and without you.

Sitar (Centre) drops
out here (edit/punch
George is singing
along as (he?) plays
the drum part, with
an audible "Da da da
da, two .. We were"
|George Harrison wrote this and
was the only Beatle to perform on
it. There is no guitar or bass, but
there are some hand-drums. (thanks,

|Harrison spent weeks looking for
musicians to play the Indian
instruments used on this. It was
especially difficult because Indian
musicians could not read Western
|The laughter at the end was
Harrison's idea to lighten the mood
and follow the theme of the album.
Some people thought it indicated
that the song was included on
Sgt. Pepper as a joke.
|This is based on a piece by
Indian musician Ravi Shankar, who
helped teach Harrison the sitar.
Harrison wrote his own lyrics and
shortened it considerably.
|Harrison wrote this as a
30-minute piece. He trimmed it down
into a mini-version for the album.
|This was the only song Harrison
wrote that made it onto the album.
He also contributed "Only A Northern
Song" (recorded in February of 1967
as verified by the Anthology 2
album), but it was left off the
album at the last minute. It was
initially intended to go on the
first side of Sgt. Pepper
between "She's Leaving Home" and
"Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite."
(thanks, Adrian - Wilmington, DE)
|This was one of Harrison's first
songs to explore Eastern religion,
which would become a lifelong quest.
He believed in reincarnation, which
helped him accept death in 2001,
when he lost his life to cancer.
