Strawberry fields forever

Strawberry Fields Forever – Ben Harper

Foi escrita por John Lennon e gravada pelos Beatles em 1966. Lennon foi buscar o nome a uma casa do Exército da Salvação que frequentava enquanto criança, em Liverpool. Actualmente há um memorial com o mesmo nome perto do local onde foi assassinado, junto ao Central Park, em Nova Iorque. Lennon diria um dia que a canção era pura psicanálise “set to music”. Ben Harper cantou-a para o filme I Am Sam, de Jessie Nelson, cuja banda sonora é exlusivamente composta por versões de temas dos Fab Four.

No one I think is in my tree, I mean it must be high or low
That is you can’t you know tune in but it’s all right
That is I think it’s not too bad


Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
It’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out
It doesn’t matter much to me

Always know sometimes think it’s me, but you know I know and it’s a dream
I think I know of thee, ah yes, but it’s all wrong
That is I think I disagree

Let me take you down, ’cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever
