Within You Without You
Recorded at Studio Two, Abbey Road, March 15 & 22, and April 3 & 4, 1967. The album version is mixed from take 2.During the recording of Sgt. Pepper, George Harrison, who had learned the sitar, studying under Ravi Shankar, and all The Beatles were spending time with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. George wrote Within You, Without You, which features these influences and the sitar. The first time the sitar was ever used in a popular song was on "Norwegian Wood..." from the album Rubber Soul.
We were talking, about the space between us all,
And people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion,
never glimpse the truth, then it's far too late, when they pass away
We were talking, about the love we all could share
When we find it, to try our best to hold it there with our love,
With our love, we could save the world, if they only knew
Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life flows on within you and without you
We were talking about the love that's gone so cold,
And the people who gain the world and lose their soul
They don't know, they can't see, are you one of them?
When you've seen beyond yourself,
Then you may find peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come, when you see we're all one and
Life flows on within you and without you
