Across the Universe

Lyrics

Words are flowing out like
Endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe.

A close friend's favorite song, so I played and sang it when they released his ashes to the waves. RIP Dennis, across the universe.

I imagine this is what a stoner hears in their head every time they light up. Very drugged out-sounding song.

The first song I ever learned on guitar. I was 9 years old. The day I fully learned the chord progression and all of the lyrics, my great grandma went into Hospice. 3 days later, I held her hand as she went. Swear sometimes I can hear the chorus sung in her voice. Nothing, will ever, change my world.

if they were gonna hide a message in one of their songs that could only be revealed by playing it backwards this would be the one to do it in

Not the original version. John was unhappy with the earlier versions, but thought Phil Spector did a hell of a job with this one.

John is so wise. My thoughts are burning to the ground right now.

A song of forward progression, not allowing changes to oneself, having had learned from past resistance. John would have more to add to its meaning, I'm sure.

This was the first song I had ever learned on guitar. It just so happens that it was that same day my amazing great grandma went to Hospice. I held her hand as she went. Never could listen to this song or play it without at least tearing up. I love you Bubby.
