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 »

Yes, I'm lonely 
Want to die
Yes, I'm lonely 
Want to die
If I ain't dead already 
Oh, girl, you know the reason why

In the morning 
Want to die
In the evening 
Want to die
If I ain't dead already 
Oh, girl, you know the reason why

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the earth 
But I am of the universe 
And you know what it's worth 

I'm lonely 
Want to die
If I ain't dead already 
Oh, girl, you know the reason why

The eagle picks my eye
The worm he licks my bone
I feel so suicidal 
Just like Dylan's Mr. Jones 

 Lonely 
Want to die
If I ain't dead already 
Oh, girl, you know the reason why

 Black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist round my soul
Feel so suicidal 
Even hate my rock and roll

Want to die
Yeah, want to die
If I ain't dead already 
Oh, girl, you know the reason why
