<^> Across the Universe   

Across the Universe  Across the Universe Across the Universe

Words are flying out like endless rain

into a paper cup
they slither while they pass


They slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting

thorough my open mind

possessing and caressing me


Images of broken light

which dance before me like a million eyes
that call me on and on across the universe

Thoughts meander like a restless wind

inside a letter box, they tumble blindly

as they make their way across the universe


Sounds of laughter shades of life

are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me

Limitless undying love

which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe


Jai guru deva om 

I give thanks to Guru Dev ohm


Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing’s gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world 


Jai guru deva

Jai guru deva 

Victory to God divine

victory to God divine        to God divine  


Across the Universe.  <^>

John Lennon, 1967


Some feel these are the most beautiful song lyrics ever written, anywhere across the universe.


John said ‘…and I was irritated, she’d been going on and on about something and she’d gone to sleep

an I kept hearing these words over and over, flowing like an endless stream… went downstairs and

it turned into sort of a cosmic song … it drove me out of bed, I didn’t want to write it…

and I couldn’t get to sleep until I’d put it on paper.’


Pools of sorrow, waves of joy; lyrical art from a master writer of classical lyrics,

as the music’s comforting feel soothes from the simple genius of a chord progression,

D, Bm, F#m, G, Em7, A7, D that plays in a circle, on the guitar’s fretboard and in your mind.
