Beatles, The - Wait Lyrics




It's been a long time
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away now
Oh how, I've been alone

Wait till I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

But if your heart breaks
Don't wait, turn me away
And if your heart's strong
Hold on, I won't delay

Wait till I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

I feel as though
You ought to know
That I've been good
As good as I can be
And if you do
I'll trust in you
And know that you
Will wait for me

It's been a long time
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away now
Oh how, I've been alone

Wait till I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

I feel as though
You ought to know
That I've been good
As good as I can be
And if you do
I'll trust in you
And know that you
Will wait for me

But if your heart breaks
Don't wait, turn me away
And if your heart's strong
Hold on, I won't delay

Wait till I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

It's been a long time
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away now
Oh how, I've been alone

Beatles, The Wait Comments
  1. Randy Axelrod

    Revolver was the most out of the box album, but Rubber Soul was the most perfect album. Not even a hint of a bad song on this one.

  2. Levana Hanameel Landa Fiesco

    t's been a long time, now I'm coming back home
    I've been away now, oh, how I've been alone

    Wait till I come back to your side
    We'll forget the tears we cried

    But if your heart breaks, don't wait, turn me away
    And if your heart's strong, hold on, I won't delay

    Wait till I come back to your side
    We'll forget the tears we cried

    I feel as though you ought to know
    That I've been good, as good as I can be
    And if you do, I'll trust in you
    And know that you will wait for me

    It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home
    I've been away now, oh, how I've been alone

    Wait till I come back to your side
    We'll forget the tears we cried

    I feel as though you ought to know
    That I've been good, as good as I can be
    And if you do, I'll trust in you
    And know that you will wait for me

    But if your heart breaks, don't wait, turn me away
    And if your heart's strong, hold on, I won't delay

    It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home
    I've been away now, oh, how I've been alone

  3. Yusuf 3152

    Flashbacks of Mister Postman starts flowing

  4. Akchun

    And to think, this song was a Help! reject... Just comes to show even their "rejects" are better than most artist's best. Amazing.

  5. Johnny Munz The Moistman

  13. cricketbat09

    Not all that memorable, but it has a distinct charm.

  14. justmadeit2

    A song only Beatles fans know. I just want to add that I made an amateur Beatles sketch with music, if anyone actually wants to see it then just type in search bar above the following title....Beatles sketch with snippets

  15. Ray Nutter

    This LP was when they started to really show their greatness

  16. jenny stephens

    my 2 older brothers gave me this album for christmas 1965 when i was 12. still have it!

  17. Parker Ballew

    Can’t believe this song almost never made it on a Beatles album

  18. Yael Evangelista

    Imagine if this song put in the Help! album, it doesn't fit because its too much folk-ish so they put it into the Rubber Soul album

  19. Tarak B

    Wonderful song.

  20. Kurt Donald Cobain

    SO EAR PLEASING WHEN YOU USE HEADPHONES!! ✨

  21. Dinah Morris

    it is worth the Wait!

  22. Ambid IQ

    Me: Sees comments on most beatles songs saying this song is underrated

    Also me: Aren't all beatles songs underrated?🤔

  23. Alberto Tristan Rodríguez Amenedo

    THE FIRST TIME I HEARD I DON'T KNOW THE LYRICS OF IT
    IT WAS A SURPRISE FOR ME, BECAUSE I CONSIDER THAT THEIR VOICES WERE LIKE INSTRUMENTS PLAYING MUSIC.
    THIS SONG, IN THIS WAY, WAS FANTASTIC FOR ME.

  24. Manolis Karafyllis

    every song of the beatles is underrated

  25. Lucas O'heyze

    Whoever put the tambourines so high in this piss-poor remaster seriously needs a slap!

  26. Karyane Belanger

    this is my favorite song of all the beatles songs hands down !!

  27. Akrious lol.

    hold on

  28. Clint Eastwood

    One of my favorites from Rubber Soul. It is very unpredictable musically.

  29. Harold Mackie

    George got 2 songs on each album and his songs are still the highest rated of the Beatles...Here Comes the Sun is #1

  30. Tommy D

    They are the greatest !

  32. José Candal

    - Vocals & Rhythm Guitar: John Lennon
    - Vocals & Bass: Paul McCartney
    - Lead Guitar: George Harrison
    - Drums, Maracas & Tambourine: Ringo Starr

  33. Waxy

    It's actually my least favourite Beatles album, but that's probably my connections with the songs. This is for me, is the best song on the album, mixing genius chord changes, harmonies and Ringo adding this just inexplicable verve. I don't know how much was G Martin or consultation of the 5 but Ringo is probably always going to be my favourite drummer...and John will definitely will always move me to the core. Lucky upbringing...?

    Pete Gilgan

    This is their greatest album - with Revolver a close second. Fantastic.

  34. John Tedesco

    The music world needs another Beatles.

  35. Julia Naylor

    I'll bet Liam Gallagher learnt his tambourine playing listening to this one.😎

  36. Physical Universe

    No mames por que tan pocas visitas

  37. Michael Barron

    At the beginning of summer 2019 I found the U.S. version of this in my dad's vinyl collection, and I listened to it and realized how great it was. So I was constantly playing over the summer, so now this whole album reminds me of that summer.

  38. Beepbeep Lettuce

    Lennon-McCartney is basically an instrument at this point

  39. KOALABEARSONGS

    holy shit...so great.. no one can write like this anymore... :(

  40. Marshuki The Fox

    *WAIT*

    Why are there 70 dislikes??!!

    Natalie Atwood

    Because 70 hearts broke...

  41. John Shipman

    Beatle's genius!!!!

  42. christopher starr

    rubber soul , Beatles most underrated album . i will easily take this over revolver

  43. Philip Zuccaro

    Wish I could find an instrumental track of "Wait"

  44. Philip Zuccaro

    An underrated masterpiece
    One of The Beatles best songs
    And never mentioned in a
    Beatles top100 poll

  45. Julia Naylor

    John and Paul in close harmony only something you could do if you had sung with the other person since your teens.😎

  46. SW2799

    As others have said, the whole rubber soul album is underrated. This song and several others were absolutely great Beatles songs, but except for those of us who are real Beatles fans they are kind of obscure. "You won't see me" is another example of what I am talking about. I am kind of amazed that nowhere man was on rubber soul in the UK, but not here in the USA. If I'm correct, wasn't rubber so the last album they issued different versions in the UK and USA?

    chatham43

    ....Revolver was the last....after that album US and UK versions were identical....unless you include MMT which was released as an EP in the UK....but an LP in the States....with extra tracks added which were only previously available as singles....

  47. Tony Bones

    The Beatles inventing backwards guitar before the Beatles invented backwards guitar...

  48. Frase Peimp

    Meu melhor album quando me acho o fodão. Esse album melhora o dia de cada um. Só pelas letras minha mente tinha se aberto de uma forma tao grande na primeira vez que escutei o album todo . Eeeita, já deu vontade de escutar dnovo

  49. your mamma

    One of the most underrated yet amazing Beatles song!

  50. David Mason

    Recorded for Help! 👍👍

    Brilliant song.

  51. feuriger Stern

    Absolutely, positively love this song!💖

  52. Chris Kroell

    Coolest, most bad ass band of all time

  53. Preacher At Arrakeen

    Dear Giles, please remix Rubber Soul and Revolver!

  54. Meladisinné

    Brilliant song 👌💖

  55. Alejandro Astudillo

    Es increíble que consideraran una canción de relleno tan bella composición... la vida es muy extraña.

  56. Jorge Rua

    jamas me canso de escucharlos

  57. Yalda Moghaddami

    The chorus gives me music orgasm

  58. Yalda Moghaddami

    "But if your heart breaks, don't wait. Turn me away"
    It's genius

  59. Peter Ellul

    great harmony

  60. Cardel

    Underrated

  61. Sloth from The Goonies

    I think this is the band's most consistent album, even the "weaker" songs are catchy as hell.

  62. Spain Linked

    So fantastic!! Not a famous Beatles song but for me one of their best. Talk about short and sweet. One of the best duos Ive heard baby!

  63. pablo 999 Mi

    A mi entender, el mejor album de la banda. Experimentacion con la frescura de los primeros discos. 👏👏👏👏👏❤

  64. Michele Tornes

    George’s guitar, the 3rd voice. So good with J and P, unreal .

  72. Gega KS

    Timeless ! Beatles forever.

    The Tom

  74. EKR

    If it is a good song than it will always sounds good.

  75. SydTheGoat

    (insert comment about how modern music is shit)

  76. That Guy Bob

    Another Banger

  77. Alejandro Saucedo

  78. Rick Morrow

    I was in 5th grade when this album came out. Everyone was talking about it. It is just as good listening to it today as it was back then.

  79. Alfredo Garcia Jr

    “And then there was one.” So, who will be the last remaining Beatle?

    Ringo quote after the Beatles breakup: “I thought about joining a band, but I was bigger than any band in the world.”

    “...Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song and I’ll try not to sing out of key.
    Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends; mm, I get high with a little help from my friends…
    Do you need anybody? I need somebody to love. Could it be anybody? I want somebody to love…”

    The Beatles - With a Little Help From My Friends (Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band, 1967)


    “Nowhere Man don’t worry, take your time don’t hurry, leave it all till somebody else lends you a hand.”

    The Beatles - Nowhere Man (my favorite Beatles song!)

  80. DoesNotExist305

    Lennon was on an absolute tear with this album. This song, Girl, Nowhere Man, In My Life, Norweigan Wood... My god, the man was on a mission.

    Niggato

    subg88 yes

    Ryan Rambo

    Danielle U not it’s not... “Wait” was written by Paul McCartney

    Ryan Rambo

    subg88 Paul was largely responsible for the melody of “In My Life”... John wrote the words.

    Niggato

    @Ryan Rambo both John and Paul sung the song

    Paul Tynan

    @The Tabbies Johns least favorite song

  81. Richard W

    Long live the Fab 4. Even after their gone.

  82. Peter Smith

    My favourite Beatles album does not get the credit it should

    L. Josino

    are you sure? every 10 comments 6 are abour how good this album is

  83. Mikey Saint

    'Wait' has always been my underrated gem from Rubber Soul. The stop/start nature of it, with John's lead vocal, and the gorgeous harmonies and full band kicking in on "Wait! Till I come back to your side, we'll forget the tears we've cried..." . Then there's Paul's part. Wondrously brilliant.

  84. Lisa Borsella

    Did anyone also have local radio stations who did Beatles A-Z weekends? I planted myself in front of my parents huge console stereo, but boy did my brothers end up thinking it would be a great idea to drive all the way to Atlantic City , party, and come back. all while listening to every song! The Beatles made THAT many songs! needless to say, my brothers got in a lot of trouble!! wish I was there darn it!

  85. jrusz55

    And these are the real beatles and not the fake ones ,thank God and for posting!

  86. Hernie Badlautner

    underrated.

  88. Maricela Oblea

  90. Raymond

    My favorite beatles album!
    A guy has given me all there lp's for free, best gift i've ever had.

  91. DodgedABullet

    I really think the Beatles IS gods way of showing off.

    BLUE SNAGGLETOOTH

    I think that would be Bach but Beatles would be the encore

    Robin Cortez

    I LOVE your comment: SUCH a great and beautiful way of putting it!! Their music has brought SO much to SO many mere mortals!!🤩👍❤

  92. Paul Maccartney

    Esta cancion la cantan Paul y John,pero la cancion la compuso Maccartney.

  93. groovinmoose

    Ah The greatest....................................period !

  94. Rainman

    It's so underrated
    It doesn't even get featured in the most underrated songs by the fab four. Lol.

  95. Robert Sterner

    A timeless classic as the whole Lp Rubber Soul is their best in my book kids..

  96. PJS

    Crazy bit of trivia. Beatles weren’t crazy about this one. Was written during the ‘Help’ sessions but left off the album. Was then placed on Rubber Soul because they were a song short. Another example of how immeasurably out of this world their catalog is, if ‘Wait’ was considered ‘weak’

    Rick Mark

    No These songs were writing after Help in the winter the album came out at the end of the year! I had to Beatles songbook tells you when they were wrote and recorded there songs!

    Rick Mark

    @A Depressed Orangutan Which one?

    PJS

    @Rick Mark You might want to verify? It was recorded initially in the summer '65 during help recordings and rejected from inclusion. Overdubs and re-records were done later - maybe the winter you are referring to - to get it to flow better with Rubber Soul. Oh, the exclamation points

    Rick Mark

    @PJS PSI The Beatles Rubber Soul album was recorded from 12th thorough November and mixed near the end of November finished up by November 23rd. The LP was ready for the shops by Friday December 3rd 65!
