  • There is a place
    Where I can go
    When I feel low
    When I feel blue
    And it's my mind
    And there's no time when I'm alone

    I think of you
    And things you do
    Go 'round my head
    The things you said
    Like "I love only you"

    In my mind there's no sorrow
    Don't you know that it's so
    There'll be no sad tomorrow
    Don't you know that it's so

    There is a place
    Where I can go
    When I feel low
    When I feel blue
    And it's my mind
    And there's no time when I'm alone
    There's a place, there's a place, there's a place, there's a place Writer/s: John Lennon, Paul Mccartney

  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaOne of my very fav Beatles tunes. Lives in my mind a lot.
  • Johan Cavalli from SwedenLennon said he wrote There's a Place. It has that so typical for Lennon three repeating long notes. After Lennon's death McCartney asked Barry Miles to say that he wrote the song. But in the future it will be called a McCartney song. When the music writers are unsure who did what, they use the "McCartney-presumtion", or: "In Dubio McCartney". Why? Yes, because 1.McCartney did Yesterday and 2.he is always smiling.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 10th 1964 Vee-Jay Records of Chicago released the album 'Introducing The Beatles'...
    And on that day the #1 album was "The Singing Nun" by the Singing Nun and ten days later on January 20th Capitol Records released 'Meet The Beatles'...
    Four tracks from the album made Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; "Love Me Do" (#1 for 1 week), "Twist and Shout (#2 for 4 weeks), "P.S. I Love You" (#10 for 1 week), and "There's A Place" (#74 for 1 week); these four songs were on the Tollie Records label, which was a subsidiary of Vee-Jay Records...
    R.I.P. John and George.
  • Leah from Ny, NyThough I agree that this song is about retreating into our minds, it does have a few lyrics about love. "I, think of you,The things you do, Go round my head, The things you say, Like I love, Only you......"
  • George from Belleville, NjThis is a haunting song with lyrics that many can relate to,we've all retreated into our minds at one time or other,also it can refer to a place of solace where one can think and be isolated for the moment.The melody and music is very upbeat and strong.Good song.
  • Joe from Hoboken, NjI'm thinking its about John & Paul escaping the pain of loosing their mothers.
  • John from Grand Island, NyThis is most probably the first Beatles song not in the boy/girl/love theme. If there's an earlier one I'm not recalling it. Based on the lyrics this is most probably about depression.
  • Forrest from Rochester, MnThe Beach Boys' "In My Room" is such a rip-off of this song.
  • Chet from Buffalo, NyIt was released as the B side of "Twist and Shout" on the Tollie label. Back then, we played EVERY B side of every 45 we bought!
