When I close my eyes I can see me flying home High above the clouds Swear I won’t look back if I get the chance Oh…I won’t come back around
Written by Paul McCartney, it is one of the songs that the Beatles worked on while in Rishikesh, India.
“I was doing a song, I Will, that I had as a melody for quite a long time but I didn’t have any lyrics to it. I remember sitting around with Donovan, and maybe a couple of other people. We were just sitting around one evening after our day of meditation and I played him this one and he liked it and we were trying to write some words. We kicked around a few lyrics, something about the moon, but they weren’t very satisfactory and I thought the melody was better than the words so I didn’t use them. I kept searching for better words and I wrote my own set in the end; very simple words, straight love-song words really. I think they’re quite effective. It’s still one of my favourite melodies that I’ve written. You just occasionally get lucky with a melody and it becomes rather complete and I think this is one of them; quite a complete tune.” - Paul McCartney
Although the recording for this song only took two days, it took the Beatles 67 takes to get it right. George Harrison did not take part in the recording.
