Things We Said Today

Album: A Hard Day's Night (1964)
  • You say you will love me
    If I have to go
    You'll be thinking of me
    Somehow I will know

    Someday when I'm lonely
    Wishing you weren't so far away
    Then I will remember
    Things we said today

    You say you'll be mine, girl
    'Til the end of time
    These days such a kind girl
    Seems so hard to find

    Someday when we're dreaming
    Deep in love, not a lot to say
    Then we will remember
    The things we said today

    Me, I'm just the lucky kind
    Love to hear you say that love is luck
    And, though we may be blind
    Love is here to stay
    And that's enough
    To make you mine, girl
    Be the only one
    Love me all the time, girl
    We'll go on and on

    Someday when we're dreaming
    Deep in love, not a lot to say
    Then we will remember
    Things we said today

    Me, I'm just the lucky kind
    Love to hear you say that love is luck
    And, though we may be blind
    Love is here to stay
    And that's enough
    To make you mine, girl
    Be the only one
    Love me all the time, girl
    We'll go on and on

    Someday when we're dreaming
    Deep in love, not a lot to say
    Then we will remember
    The things we said today Writer/s: John Winston Lennon, Paul James McCartney

  • Les from UkA deceptively simple song that always sounds brilliant. Paul's voice was perfect for this one.
  • Roy from Slough, United KingdomWell......shes not really his sister shes he's wife AND her name is Michele Pillar Carlton. ''GULP''
  • Roy from Slough, United KingdomIf you want to hear a real brilliant version of this,listen to the version by Larry Carlton & his sister Pillar....GOOSEBUMPS!
  • M from Lennonland, NyThis song sounds quite eerie indeed, and I just love it. Just listened to it the first time today.
  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, Cawhat a brilliant song and recording..it has kind of a drone sound....haunting and eerie...
  • Matthew from Bromley, United KingdomCliff Richard recorded a fantastic version of this song in the mid/late sixties. It was used as an ep track (la la la la la is the EP) It is hard to find and brillant to listen to.
  • Lateeka from Kelowna, CanadaAmazing chemistry between McCartney and Harrison... it's rare to have them sing together .. or John and George! It's usually Paul and John. Good stuff
  • Jill from Dumfries, VaThis is one of my favorite beatles songs.
    You can just hear the sincerity in his voice.
    and george on the guitar makes it even better, God rest your soul Mr. Harrison <3.
  • Bulldog from Goldsboro, NcStorybox included a version of this song on the album No Dancing Allowed.
  • Tim from New York, NyMe and my gf picked this as our song, cause its soo true, that when you are away from your signifigant other, all you can think about is them, all you remember is time spent with them...
  • Krista from Elyria, OhCool, Luna. I like this slow song.
  • George from Yonkers, NyA proto folk rock song on the underrated Hard Day's Night album.
  • Brian from Sydney, CanadaPaul's fascination with the art of letter writing that is in a few of his songs. Just off the top of my head, "P.S. I Love You", "All My Loving", "Paperback Writer", and"From Me To You" in a sense.
  • Luna from London, EnglandNot only Paul wrote this song. He was on vacation with Ringo Starr, Ringo's girlfriend(and later wife) Maureen, and Jane Asher. The FOUR of them wrote it while on a boat.
  • Jon from Tucson, AzThe lyrics are optimistic but the music sounds weary.
  • Alan from Grande Prairie, Alberta, CanadaMy favourite Beatles song hands down.
  • Mauricio from Hanford, CaJust cannot stop liking this song...
  • Sophia from Mesquite, TxI never get tired of this song.
  • Jeff from Boston, MaPaul McCartney wrote this song while abpard a yacht called "Happy Days", cruisin' tthe Carribean. It was a about his relationship with his girlfriend at the time - Jane Asher, and the fact that by nature oftheir occupations, they wouldn't be able to spend alot of time together, and that when they were apart, he could remember the things they had said to each other the last time theyt were together.
  • Jeff from Boston, MaThis song may have been on the B-side of "A Hard Day's Night" in the UK, but in the US, "I Should Have Known Better" was on the flip side of "A Hard Day's Night".
