The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania", but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era's sociocultural revolutions. more »

I listen for your footsteps  Coming up the drive  Listen for your footsteps 
But they don't arrive  Waiting for your knock, dear
On my old front door
I don't hear it,
Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

I hear the clock a'ticking,
On the mantel shelf
See the hands a'moving,
But I'm by myself 
I wonder where you are tonight,
And why I'm by myself 
I don't see you,
Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

Don't pass me by, don't make me cry, don't make me blue
'Cause you know darling, I love only you
You'll never know it hurt me so,
I hate to see you go
Don't pass me by, don't make me cry

I'm sorry that I doubted you,
I was so unfair 
You were in a car crash,
And you lost your hair
You said that you would be late
 About an hour or two
I said, "That's alright, I'm waiting here,
Just waiting to hear from you"

Don't pass me by, don't make me cry, don't make me blue
'Cause you know darling, I love only you
You'll never know it hurt me so,
I hate to see you go
Don't pass me by, don't make me cry

Don't pass me by, don't make me cry, don't make me blue
'Cause you know darling, I love only you
You'll never know it hurt me so,
I hate to see you go
Don't pass me by, don't make me cry
