JOHN 1972: 'I remember (Beatles music publisher) Dick James coming up to me after we did this one and saying, 'You're getting better now – that was a complete story.' Apparently, before that, he thought my songs wandered off.'

JOHN 1980: 'That's my song.
That's the one where Dick James the publisher said, 'That's the first complete song you've written that resloves itself,' you know, with a complete story.
It was sort of my version of 'Silhouettes.' (sings) 'Silhouettes, silhouettes, silhouettes…' I had that image of walking down the street and seeing her silhouetted in the window and not answering the phone, although I never called a girl on the phone in my life.
Because phones weren't part of the English child's life.'

PAUL circa-1994: 'We wrote 'No Reply' together but from a strong original idea of his.
I think he pretty much had that one, but as usual, if he didn't have a third verse and the middle-eight, then he'd play it to me pretty much formed.
Then we'd shove a bit in the middle or I'd throw in an idea.'

This happened once before
When I came to your door
No reply
They said it wasn't you
But I saw you peep through your window

I saw the light, I saw the light
I know that you saw me
As I looked up to see your face

I tried to telephone
They said you were not home
That's a lie
'Cause I know where you've been
I saw you walk in your door

I nearly died, I nearly died
'Cause you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place

If I were you I'd realize that I
Love you more than any other guy
And I'll forgive the lies that I
Heard before when you gave me no reply

I've tried to telephone
They said you were not home
That's a lie
'Cause I know where you've been
I saw you walk in your door

I nearly died, I nearly died
'Cause you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place

No reply, no reply
