"For No One" by the Beatles
[C C]Your day breaks, [Em Em]your mind aches
[Am Am]You find that [C C]all her words of [Fm Fm]kindness linger on
When she no [C C]longer needs you

[C C]She wakes up, [Em Em]she makes up
[Am Am]She takes her [C C]time and doesn't [Fm Fm]feel she has to hurry
She no [C C]longer needs you


And in her [Dm Dm]eyes you see nothing [A7 A7]
[Dm Dm]No sign of [A7 A7]love behind the [Dm Dm]tears
Cried for no [A7 A7]one
[Dm Dm]A A love that [A7 A7]should have lasted [Dm Dm]years [G G]

You want her, you need her
And yet you don't believe her when she said her love is dead
You think she needs you


You stay home, she goes out
She says that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone
She doesn't need him

Your day breaks, your mind aches
There will be time when all the things she said
Will fill your head
You won't forget her

The chords are perfect, but they would be easier to follow if they accompanied the lyrics all the way though the song, instead of just through the first verse and chorus.

About this song

"For No One" is a song written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon/McCartney) that originally appeared on The Beatles' seventh album, Revolver. A ballad about the end of a relationship, it was one of McCartney's most mature and poignant works to date. Musically the track is particularly distinguished by its French horn solo. John Lennon said of the song, "One of my favourites of his - a nice piece of work."
