Something
The Beatles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You're asking me will my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around, now it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me




I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Overall Meaning

The song "Something" by The Beatles is a love song where the singer describes the inexplicable quality of his love for his woman. He is extremely drawn to her and feels that there is something special in the way she moves and speaks that he cannot explain. He feels that she understands him in a way that no one else can and he has no desire to leave her. The lyrics suggest that there is a certain magic in their relationship, a je ne sais quoi that keeps the singer attached to his lady.


The song speaks about the intricacies of love in a way that is both profound and relatable. The lyrics suggest that there is something beyond what we can see that draws people to one another. The fact that the singer is unsure whether his love will grow or not indicates that love is a mysterious process that sometimes cannot be fully understood. He encourages his lady to stick around, knowing that if they spend more time together, the depth of his feelings for her may become more apparent.


Overall, this song is a beautiful ode to love that captures the essence of the way we feel about someone who is special to us. It is a reminder that there is much about love that cannot be rationally explained, and that is part of what makes it so magical.

This video is actually pretty sad when you come to realise that at the point of filming this, the Beatles had grown so far apart that they decided to film their own parts at their own homes rather than come together and record it as a group. The video was also shot when McCartney fell into a deep depression over realising that the Beatles were over, and you can really see it in his untidy appearence

@donbovie

Nothing to be sad. As times goes by.

@kibby1234

As George said " all things must pass". I choose to look at this as the Beatles simply moving on and the people they're moving on with. There's no doubt that each are happy with the company of their partners at this time. So why be sad

@Bella-nt7ec

even so, he's the best, the most genuine

@pinkfloydmeddle6692

Come together

@overloadchez3580

Don't be sad it's over, be happy that is happened
