Flying Hour

Album: Somewhere In England (1981)
  • All through my life I've been hearing
    All about those good old days.
    It makes no diff'rence,
    What was or what may be.
    The past it is gone,
    The future may not be at all,
    The present improve the flying hour.

    Some people look into the future,
    They're hoping that they'll see better days.
    It's such a sweet thought,
    It's something that could be but
    The past it is gone,
    The future may not be at all,
    The present improve the flying hour.

    What was and what may be,
    Is not here, it is not clear to me.
    Right now is the one thing
    That I can feel, the one thing real to me,
    Uh-uh - uh-uh.

    So as you sit back to remember
    That which you cannot recall.
    It makes no diff'rence,
    What was or what may be.
    The past it is gone,
    The future may not be at all,
    The present improve the flying hour.

    (Sax solo)

    It makes no diff'rence,
    What was or what may be.
    The past it is gone,
    The future may not be at all,
    The present improve the flying hour, uh-uh, uh-uh.

    The past it is gone,
    The future may not be at all,
    The present improve the flying hour.

  • Gary from Staten Island, NyJust wanted to make a slight correction here.

    The alternate, slower mix which was released as part of a CD single/book is also the same one that popped up on the ITUNES version of "Somewhere In England" in 2007. Neither version of the song was included on the 2004 CD re-release of the album.

    Warner Brothers really goofed on this one and robbed Harrison of a sure hit. The faster, edited intended for release version which was supposed to come out on the original 1980 LP, is my all time favorite song and has been since I first heard it on February 2, 1983. It's the greatest song never heard.

    I thank you.
