While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Alone in the dim there's a candle there gleaming
While these strings sweetly sing.
I see your face in a vision that's fleeting
As soft chords gently cry.

You couldn't know how much I love you,
You don't even know my name.
I've watched you stride laughing and lovely,
Confident in your fame.

I wish I could share this song that I wrote you
While these strings sweetly sing.
Then touch your hand as I bid you adieu
As soft chords gently cry.

You couldn't know how much I love you,
You don't even know my name.
I've watched you stride laughing and lovely,
Confident in your fame.

So here I shall play, with my love's inspiration
While these strings sweetly sing.
And be content with my dream's consolation
As soft chords gently cry.



Written by Craig Cornish
One of my favorite melodies ever written by anyone.
These are lyrics written to George Harrison's melody
