This is a song that Paul McCartney wrote for John Lennon after he was murdered in 1980.

When I first heard it, I cried for a good 5 minutes.

Here Today by Paul McCartney 

A song that has made you cry.
A song that has made you cry.


And If I Say I Really Knew You Well
What Would Your Answer Be.
If You Were Here Today.

Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- Here To – Day.

Well Knowing You,
You’d Probably Laugh And Say That We Were Worlds Apart.
If You Were Here Today.
Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- Here To – Day.

But As For Me,
I Still Remember How It Was Before.
And I Am Holding Back The Tears No More.
Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- I Love You, Ooh-

What About The Time We Met,
Well I Suppose That You Could Say That We Were Playing Hard To Get.
Didn’t Understand A Thing.
But We Could Always Sing.

What About The Night We Cried,
Because There Wasn’t Any Reason Left To Keep It All Inside.
Never Understood A Word.
But You Were Always There With A Smile.

And If I Say I Really Loved You
And Was Glad You Came Along.

If You Were Here Today.
Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- For You Were In My Song.
Ooh- Ooh- Ooh- Here To – Day.
