i have analized the lyrics to johns song 'i dont wanna face it', that appeared on 'milk and honey'...it reflects on how he wants to get out of new york city, and how sick he was of paul, and his beatle past.
' i dont wanna face it'
(verse)-- 'say youre looking for a place to go where no body knows your name!
(he's trying to get out of new york city, and from his beatles past.)
(verse)-- 'youre looking for oblivion with one eye on the hall of fame
(he wants know one to know who he is, but is also keeping his eye on his musical carrerr).
(CHORUS)--i dont wanna face it x2 (means he cant face it anymore)
(bridge)--well i can dish it out, but i just cant face it.
(verse)-- 'say youre looking for some peace and love, the leader of a big old band'
(reflects on his 'peace and love' period, and talks about how he was the leader of the beatles)
(verse)-- 'you wanna save humanity, but theres people that you just cant stand(talks about his hatered for paul).
(bridge)-- 'well i can sing for my supper...but i just cant make it.
(he's saying uhe can sing for his suppper, but cn make it)
(verse)-- 'well now! youre looking for a world of truth, trying to find a better way
(he's trying to make the world a better place)
(verse)-- 'the time has come to see youreself, you always look the other way
(in an interview on dec 8th john said 'this is the first album thats actually about us', so when john sings 'you always look the other way', he means he should start focusing on this 'family' album.)
(bridge)-- ' well i can see the promised land, and i know i can make it
(what he's saying is that his life is getting better, and he's more optimistic).
so wadda ya think?
