This. Completely.

And with that I will share one of my personal demos from 1980. It's a song that would have been AMAZING on it's own, but probably developed into "(Just Like) Starting Over." I love the version with John and Yoko because he's instructing her in the beginning and...just running through it. I have no idea if he was planning this to be a song for both of them or what, but it certainly has power, beauty, and bittersweetness that really pulls me in.

I'm providing two versions, Take 1 and the version that was on the Lennon Anthology:





I really love this song!!!

Lyrics:

Quote:
My life
take it
It's mine to give
It's mine to give
let me live in you

My life
take it
It's yours
Do what you will
I dedicate it to you

What's the use in waking
If you're not there to share
the dreams and nightmares?

My life
take it
for better or worse
why waste time
we both know
together is the only way
we;ll make it
anyway, take it

My life
My life is you

What's the use in waking
if you're not there to share
the dreams and nightmares?

I've only myself to lose
I've only myself to lose in you

Spoken:

My life
take it
for better or worse
why waster time when we both know it

Together is the only way we're going to make it
Anyway

My life, my life is you"
