Strawberry Fields Forever Lyrics
Nothing is real, and
Nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry fields forever.
Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see.
It’s getting hard to be someone...

I see a lot of opinions... That is all they are and that is all I or anyone could possibly add. I am an old 60's hippie and like most I did a lot of drugs. All I would like to say is if you could get hold of a hit of strawberry fields LSD then you would probably understand every word of this song as I did.

"No one I think is in my tree, I mean it must be high or low
That is you can't you know tune in but it's all right, that is I think it's not too bad"
wasn't there a phrase about LSD. Something like tune in drop out???

I think they were high.

The song is about them shooting up heroin. Strawberry Fields refers to the marks left on their arms. When you shoot up heroin its a low, that's why they say let me take you down.

I don't really know if strawberry fields was an orphanage or a hangout but I've been told it is about heroin but to explain further the act of mixing your blood with heroin before you inject it, just watch pulp fiction and you see John Travolta do it.

THE SONG IS NOT ABOUT DRUGS
At the end you can hear John saying "I buried Paul"

since everyone seems to think it's about a hangout...
I have my own interpretation, not to discredit yours, but I honestly believe that they are talking about a drug, known as Strawberry fields LSD. Don't believe me? look it up
It could also be talking about the orphanage in Liverpool??

If you listen to the actual song and not just the lyrics,there are different emphasises on the words. I think the song is meant as a comfort song to bring friends down from a high or a trip. When he says "..take me down, because I'm going too" I interpret it as him coming down with his friends and they're all in it together.

ok, I didn't read all the interpretations, but I actually visited liverpool two summers ago. Strawberry fields is actually an orphanage close to where one of the beatles lived (I think John, but I'm not sure). I actually saw it and have pictures in front of its gates. Like Penny Lane, the sign is painted on a brick fence because people were stealing them.
