I've been listening to George's All Things Must Pass album a lot lately. "I Live For You" is so beautiful, but when you really listen to what he's saying, I realized it's really a very sad song.



All alone in this world of mine
Not a care for this world have I
Only you keep my eyes open wide
Yes, it's true, I live for you

Not a thing in this world do I own
Only sadness or mourn that is grown
In this darknses I wait for the day
Yes, it's true, I live for you

Through many years I wait
Through many tears I weep

All this time my thoughts return to you
Give my love that is all I can do
Wait in line till I feel you inside
Yes, it's true, I live for you

Through many years I wait
Through many tears I weep

All this time my thoughts return to you
Give my love that is all I can do
Wait in line till I feel you inside
Yes, it's true, I live for you


Does anyone else see it that way? Like, his only reason for being around was for "you"... anyone know if that was Patti or Olivia? There's this 8-minute video I have about the Brainwashed album, and there's a clip of George, around 2000, saying something like he felt like he was on the wrong planet, and he just wanted to be in his garden and not out in the noisy cities. And I connected that back to this song in a way... anyone get what I'm saying? It's like he never felt like he really needed to be here. maybe??
