Mais uma dos Beatles – For No One

14/09/2009 0 Por Fernando de Oliveira

Para não deixar morrer o assunto da semana, aqui vai a letra de uma das canções do início da fase adulta da dupla John  Lennon e Paul McCartney. For No One é uma das belas melodias criadas pela dupla (McCartney na maior parte) e uma das letras mais adultas e tristes de todo o catálogo dos Beatles.

Sem dúvida, os caras sabiam o que faziam.

For No One
Lennon/McCartney

Your day breaks, your mind aches,
You find that all her words of kindness linger on,
When she no longer needs you.

She wakes up, she makes up,
She takes her time and doesn’t feel she has to hurry,
She no longer needs you.

And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.

You want her, you need her,
And yet you don’t believe her,
When she says her love is dead,
You think she needs you.

And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.

You stay home, she goes out,
She says that long ago she knew someone but now,
He’s gone, she doesn’t need him.

Your day breaks, your mind aches,
There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head,
You won’t forget her.

And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.
