Here Comes the Sun Lyrics

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all...

    To me Here Comes the Sun is a good metaphor for forget the dark , cold past, and bask in the new warm sunlight, because good is on its way....

    This was off the Abbey Road album (obviously) and tensions were REALLY high. George took a break and went to Eric Clapton's house, and wrote Here Comes the Sun in his garden. It's about how he's happy when he's out of the recording studio because he's free from the tension.

    It is an anti-war song.

    The "sun" refers to a bomb. Similar to a lot of anti-war folk songs from the 60s, the Beatles put the sarcastic "It's all right." at the end.

    Whenever hearing this song still brings back hopeful and uptomistic memories you had when young to look forward to a BRIGHTER FUTURE TO BELIEVE in, especially after overcoming the difficult dark and cold days in your life. A song that was and is still good for the soul that GEORGE HARRISON wrote with THE BEATLES, where at times reminds me of the quote by the CHRISTIAN Independent thinker C.S LEWIS when he said ''I believe in CHRISTIANITY as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it, I see everything else''

    It's pretty simple when your mind is in the right place.....It's all about the Beatles breaking up....and it's ok....is what he is saying...think about it...the words, the time and the weight off all their backs....Maybe why Ringo sold off all his Beatles drums...

    Is about the millenium, golden age, new world order pagan globalists who have either lost faith in jesus christ or were never believers at all. Sun=son, aka Apollo the sun god. I know this because they played this in the mental ward. Think I am playing, I hope it ain't (so). Bleh!

    I think the song is making an abstract reference to the unusually long winter of 1815 that devastated Europe with an unusually long winter following the eruption of a volcano.

    This song is about reflecting on the past and remembering the bad things, or the things that brought us down and finally coming to the realization that they have happened and we have dealt with them. Now its time to look forward and focus on the things that bring us happiness.

    I also think this song is about the end of WWII, because the war is over and although things were bad they are getting better. The song is about the freedom and peace that hasn't been there for so long, but the war is over and everything is going to be okay. The war was a 'dark' and 'cold' time 'it's been a long cold lonely winter' but 'here comes the sun'. Which shows everything is going to be okay, even though it wasn't for quite some years.

    Here comes the sun means, the end of the world. When a solar flare will destroy the planet. Sun, Sun, Sun, Here it comes and It's all right.

    I view "Here Comes the Sun", as where someone has lost a family member, from the cause of death. The song, about the sun coming out, assures the surviving family members that everything is eventually going to be fine.

    it just meant winter was over. every year on the 1st day of spring you can always hear it and Aquarius a dozen times a day. they both made a person feel good inside

    I view this song a little differently. the sun is a big light, like what people see when they are dying. it doesnt necessarily mean the end of his life is coming, but it could be the end of something else, like a graduation. he is saying the end is coming and he is okay with that because whatever is ending had a good run and it's time to move on.
    this is how I see the song because I'm graduating from a school I have been going to for 9 years and it just set in I'm leaving. so I know the end is near, and even though it's hard to understand, I'm okay with it. :)

    I think the song is about how no matter how crappy your day is, when the sun will come out and it will make all your trouble disappear and it's a new beging and you can make things right that you messed up before
