Lyric of the Day: Here Comes the Sun – The Beatles

Share This

Despite being one of the least prolific Beatles, George Harrison penned some of their most well-known and beautiful songs including While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Something and the gem for the lyric of the day. This is one of my favorite Beatles songs and always seems to make me smile.

Why I like these lyrics:

Harrison used the winter thaw as a metaphor for both very personal and very global relationships. He was always very interested in spreading his beliefs, which were deeply rooted in the Hari Krishna philosophies of Hinduism. Seeing the winter give way to spring was an ideal metaphor for the opening of one’s mind to other ideas or the opening of one’s heart to other people. And, best of all, he understood that things don’t change with a bolt of lightning but rather with the gentle passing of one season into another.

Favorite Line:

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it’s all right
It’s all right
