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...

    Here comes the sun means...here comes a new beginning...another chapter..another endeavor...another life...a new chance...something to look forward to...some new way of doing things emerges and is very promising...George while doing this song must have learned something new from Eric Clapton, so he sigh...Here comes the sun

    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....

    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

    It sings to me of coming back to life after loss. Losing a child severely damaged my sense of purpose... I followed a dream my daughter dremptfor me, not knowing she had so much intuition regarding any purpose I might have after losing her, and I am, slowly, learning to live again. This song is the gift I share to my remaining family, that I am becoming hopeful for something other than heaven again. It speaks of how it feels to see a glimmer of light at the end of a too long tunnel. It's my song to my daughter in heaven.

    Just a happy and hopeful song for people whenever you're feeling down.

    It is about death and the pain one has before death. The sunshine is the pain subsiding to bliss just before death. "And it is alright."

    I think that song is going to be more love and especially to others, from journey, and also it’s a theme called being love. Then they’ll be emotional.

    My daughter chose this song as she walked down the aisle at her wedding. It was Spring, the garden was in full bloom and the sun was shining. I was at first quite surprised at her choice but on the day it was just perfect. The smile on her face and her future husband said it all.

    I think it's about Sun worship and how all the world elite are ushering in a new era of belief. New World Order and all that biz.
    (See also "Here comes the sun king")
    There are many other references in other songs.

    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.
