By Richard Starkey and George Harrison


EV´RY TIME I SEE YOUR FACE,
IT REMINDS ME OF THE PLACES WE USED TO GO.
BUT ALL I GOT IS A PHOTOGRAPH
AND I REALISE YOU'RE NOT COMING BACK ANYMORE.

I THOUGHT I´D MAKE IT THE DAY YOU WENT AWAY,
BUT I CAN'T MAKE IT
TILL YOU COME HOME AGAIN TO STAY-YI-YAY-YI-YAY.

I CAN'T GET USED TO LIVING HERE,
WHILE MY HEART IS BROKE, MY TEARS I CRIED FOR YOU.
I WANT YOU HERE TO HAVE AND HOLD,
AS THE YEARS GO BY AND WE GROW OLD AND GREY.

NOW YOU'RE EXPECTING ME TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU,
BUT THAT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO.

I CAN'T GET USED TO LIVING HERE,
WHILE MY HEART IS BROKE, MY TEARS I CRIED FOR YOU.
I WANT YOU HERE TO HAVE AND HOLD,
AS THE YEARS GO BY AND WE GROW OLD AND GREY.

EV´RY TIME I SEE YOUR FACE,
IT REMINDS ME OF THE PLACES WE USED TO GO.
BUT ALL I GOT IS A PHOTOGRAPH
AND I REALISE YOU'RE NOT COMING BACK ANYMORE.

EV´RY TIME I SEE YOUR FACE,
IT REMINDS ME OF THE PLACES WE USED TO GO.
BUT ALL I GOT IS A PHOTOGRAPH
AND I REALISE YOU'RE NOT COMING BACK ANYMORE.

EV´RY TIME I SEE YOUR FACE,
IT REMINDS ME OF THE PLACES WE USED TO GO.
BUT ALL I GOT IS A PHOTOGRAPH
AND I REALISE YOU'RE NOT.

    About a man and woman who met love at first sight, one is married and sent to be stationed elsewhere, all they have are few photographs. It is a case of true love but time and circumstances stopped the communications. Though divorced now, fate never brings them back together again, each goes through life being with others, but because of the probable curse of the first marital infidelity they live never to see or know about the other, very heart wrenching and perhaps when both are finally gone their spirits will be together in happiness.
