  • Lyrics
  • Matching the rest of the album, this is a stark and hollow track. Lennon sings about the importance of love, which was a common theme in his songwriting.
  • Phil Spector co-produced the album along with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and played the piano on this track, which is the only instrumentation.

  • Rick Margin from Brick,njLennon recorded this with Phil Spector playing the piano. The song was originally composed as a simple acoustic vibe,but morphed into a more piano-driven track in the studio. On Take 12, Lennon asked Spector to accompany him on the piano (while John continued to play the acoustic). It was completed on Take 25.
