This site covers the original British Beatles Albums plus analyses of the lyrics of non-album tracks.
Information on how the Beatles wrote the lyrics to the Rubber Soul album songs can be navigated from below.
During the making of Rubber Soul Paul McCartney was having a lot of problems with his girlfriend Jane Asher, who was determined to have her own career and not be known simply as the girlfriend of a Beatle.
The lyrics of the Beatles you won’t see me song reflect this situation, Paul normally wrote very optimistically, and had never previously had problems getting what he wanted out of a relationship; but now the boot was on the other foot and it was him who was being rejected and his phone calls left unanswered. This led to him writing more biting love songs straight from the heart for the first time, a thing that Lennon had been doing for a long time.
Paul takes lead vocals on you won’t see me and the Beatles are joined by Mal Evans, one of their roadies, on the Hammond organ.
