For No One

(Lennon-McCartney)


The day breaks
His mind aches
He finds that all her words of kindness linger on
She no longer needs him

She wakes up, she makes up
She takes her time
And doesn't feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs him

And in her eyes
He sees nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

He wants her
He needs her
And yet, he won't believe her
When she says her love is dead
He thinks she needs him

He stays home
She goes out
She says that long ago
She knew someone
But now he's gone
She no longer needs him

And in her eyes
He sees nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years
