Song Lyric Sunday: Hide and seek – ‘You’ve got to hide your love away’

This week, Jim has sent me back to my roots in terms of both time and place with his prompts for Song Lyric Sunday.

Although this is formally attributed  to Lennon & McCartney, this is John’s work and was originally on the soundtrack of ‘Help!’, released in 1965

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she’s gone I can’t go on
Feeling two-foot small

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

How can I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I’m in

How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

Written by John Lennon
