GEORGE 1967: 'I'm writing more songs now that we're not touring.
The words are always a bit of a hangup for me.
I'm not very poetic.
'Within You Without You' was written after dinner one night at Klaus Voorman's house.
He had a harmonium, which I hadn't played before.
I was doodling on it when the tune started to come.
The first sentence came out of what we'd been doing that evening… 'We were talking.' That's as far as I got that night.
I finished the rest of the words later at home.'JOHN 1967: 'George has done a great indian one.
We came along one night and he had about 400 indian fellas playing, and it was a great swinging event, as they say.'JOHN 1980: 'One of George's best songs.
One of my favorites of his, too.
He's clear on that song.
His mind and his music are clear.
There is his innate talent.
He brought that sound together.'
We were talking about the space between us all
And the 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 knewTry to realise 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 youWe 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
