Help!

When I was younger so much younger than today

I never needed anybodys help in any way

But now these days are gone, Im not so self assured

Now I find Ive changed my mind and opened up the doors

Help me get my feet back on the ground

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways

My independence seems to vanish in the haze

But every now and then I feel so insecure

I know that I just need you like Ive never done before

Help me get my feet back on the ground

When I was younger, so much younger than today

I never needed anybodys help in any way

But now these days are gone, Im not so self assured

Now I find Ive changed my mind and opened up the doors

Help me get my feet back on the ground

The title track ofthe albumandthe filmwhich followed, Help! was released in 1965 as a single, and was ranked No. 29 on theRolling Stones list ofthe 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Being primarily written by Lennon, the song comments on his feelings about being quickly risen to fame as revealed onThe Beatles Anthology. Lennon said he felt that Help!, along with Strawberry Fields Forever, was his most honest, genuine Beatles songs and not just songs written to order.

John Lennon has been very openand direct about the songs meaning:

Most people think its just a fast rock & roll song. Subconsciously, I was crying out for help. I didnt realize it at the time; I just wrote the song because I was commissioned to write it for the movie.

like a pig, drinking too much and smoking marijuana for breakfast I dont like the recording that much. We did it too fast, to try and be commercial.
