George Harrison - What Is Life Lyrics

What I feel, I can't say
But my love is there for you anytime of day
But if it's not love that you need
Then I'll try my best to make everything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

What I know, I can do
If I give my love now to everyone like you
But if it's not love that you need
Then I'll try my best to make ev'rything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side
Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

What I feel, I can't say
But my love is there for you any time of day
But if it's not love that you need
Then I'll try my best to make everything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side
Oh tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

What is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

Oh tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me who am I without you by my side

George Harrison What Is Life Comments
  1. Reg Hunt

    The "Instant Family" montage is better.

  2. TheBluewaterBlonde

    In 2016, George Harrison's widow Olivia and son Dhani held a worldwide contest through to determine what filmmaker from anywhere would provide the video for Harrison’s 1971 song "What Is Life". The winner was Brandon Moore from Oakland, California. This winning video features Emma Rubinowitz and Esteban Hernandez, both of the San Francisco Ballet, who play a happy go lucky couple dressed in yellow who go frolicking around the streets and in the woods within the San Francisco Presidio. Per Olivia and Dhani Harrison, this video truly captured the lightheartedness of the song’s lyrics.

    The silver geometrical avenues of the poetic hanging gardens, of the palaces and castles, and crystal cathedrals, calculated, in the measure of height and depth, thickness and length, of people's thoughts, illuminated by the glow of the rainbow rose! The truth, do not change your clothes, in the dressing room of the colors of the eyes, to please the audience, on the stage of the theater of life! Is the night revealing the stars, or is it the stars revealing the depth of the darkness of the night! The esegesis of poetic inspiration, is not authentic, if the verses are not strativarius! The Andalusian, malaguenha, Spicy, flamenco ballet flats, and Castanets, framed by the erotic red chords of the guitars; electrifying carotids, violets, of the musical notes, present the recital on the stage, set on fire by the sensual flame, in the mastery of movemen flamenco stage, of body circumsection, is the boiling blood of the soul of the dance! The poetic proparoxytone,esdrúxulo [whimsical], is the verses of the extravagant composition, the exotic, inspiration, the literary work! The tears, which the beloved woman indeed sheds for her beloved, are carved with the chisel of gold, in the inspiration of the chord of love, in the soul of the poet!, The sea kisses the moon, in the blue forest, from the horizon madrigal! With the millimeter tip of the glove nail astragalus, the soccer goalkeeper executes and operates a acrobatic and miraculous defense in the parallel of his poetic heart! My darling Blue Princess of the sapphire dolphin thalamus is flying in pink zepelin in the sky of all shades and feminine hues!

    The Stars parade exuberantly on the radiant night catwalk, displaying the magnitude and carat of their brilliance and splendor! Why do stars confide in their loving feelings for poets? Why do poets open their hearts and show their lyrical feelings to the moon? The Summer Poetry is disguised as an astral moon, and the astral moon is disguised as a magically enigmatic muse! And Voila, the Man of poetry, kisses the moon, in the dawn of the sonnet's verses, in the madrigal idyll of literature! Only a poet can decipher the hermeneutics of the dream mathematics of the verses written on the moon of his soul! Our eyes are intertwined in the electronic waves of love of the pleiades and the stars! Reciprocity is the complicity of two hearts that love and love each other! The Woman, simply woman is the idyllic heaven of the poet! The deepest of the soft is the fragrance of the color of the petal, of the skin of the female anatomy! The Beauty, is a crstal diamond, avid for eternity! The landscapes of nature are painted by the speed of eternal thought! The eagle travels a vertical equation for understanding renewal! The rainy firmament is a sad, melancholy lark, weeping tears of tears over the lost loves, and the answers, from the misfortune of life! The Man of Words, has a heart, a seaman's port, in the latitude coordinates of solitude! @@@ ZZZ

    How do i go about buying this clip?

  11. VincenzoPentangeli

    Good video but I like this one better

  12. Richard Williams

    Wow that video is great. It just hit me when they dance together on the hill overlooking Arlington Cemetery (I think) it is exuberant youthful life exulting in being alive! With silent headstones set in thousands completely still,in the their stead the Youth dance in the Sun on the hill above

  13. Slomofogo

    Best video paired with song ever.

  14. Kevin Meehan Willowbrook, IL

    Paul may have had the most successful post-Beatle career, but George put out the best music.

  15. Andrew Dugas

    I watched this a few times before realizing it was filmed in the Presidio in San Francisco. This is not recorded anywhere but anyone familiar with it can recognize it immediately. The dancers were members of the SF Ballet. More info on this video here:

    The unquestionable, wisdom and lightness of the Words, in the chords of the strong wind, in the roads of unlimited speed, the hearts and souls of people! It is not possible to speak to a mountain with mountains of words to convey a microscopic idea! Only, one speaks, to a mountain, with words of faith! The soul has faces and countenances, and the heart has faces and faces, which reflect in look and expression! The umbilical cord of love is the bond of a perfect relationship! We are in the bond of perfect love! Poetic love is blowing in the wind, in every design, from the heart! The armor of war is not the color of hate, the armor of war is the color of love! My, dear, Blue Princess is the apple of heavenly ether! The [parallelepiped], is a train, express, phonetic, poetic, that travels, on the syllable track of the composition of the verses, in speed, the strambotic sound of words! The oceanic pelago, roars, aphorisms and couplets, To fidelity and altruism, of whales and dolphins, in the romantic, deadly marine adventure! The magnitude of the magistrature of trees is an unparalleled lesson in poetic organ donation! The man of poetry, cuddles, the majestic tigress, the graceful and soft grandeur of the poetry of intuition and feminine features, of the verses of composition! The poetic carambox, is a hostel of the moonlight, the blue arbor, the constellation pampa, in the oratory of the love erequêremere, for its idyllic rain princess!

    Such an uplifting song and video. Plus, a very beautiful lady too

  24. MrOshutup


  25. Noe Berengena

    George does it again (and again, and again...) Paul's music after the Beatles doesn't come close to this.
    The video is surprisingly wonderful.
    BTW: Was this filmed at the Presidio?

  26. daniel oliveira

    The Poetic Multicolored Rain, is the mystical watercolor of the rainbow, is painting of Love Landscapes, in the streets, and the squares of people's hearts! The poetic wolf's serenade, romantic and poignant, for his unmistakable muse, happens apart, from the pack of metropole of the ideals of men; inserted on the inhospitable and steep carpet of itself, and describes the psychological profile of the soul, of urban city tales! It is the gray serenade of soul marble! The Man of poetry, filled his hands with stones of angry thoughts, to refute his detractors; however, looking within, he realized that he was already hostage to their madness and violence! The measure of aesthetics is a sentence of beauty, yet self-esteem has its own measures! The low esteem, is precose, misfortune of the soul! Fate does not drop a leaf from the tree! In the ways of the man of poetry there is no chance or chance! Life is a shell of concatenated patchwork! The forest of boomerang war is human epidermal! Do not call love love, when love is not love! Love always tells the truth! Unfortunately, love is a sunset far from many hearts! The nocturnal flowers are feminine flowers, they exude an erotic perfume, in the night adorned with moonlight lace, embalmed, in the lyricism of poetry! The stars have embroidered with light, your silhouette in the shadow of the thalamus of pleasure! the invisible is the eye candy of faith, and the antidote to the unbelieving heart!

    Great song, too bad the video doesn't have the same worth.

  31. daniel oliveira

    The noisy, rumbling whine of the clamor of the verses in the jungle of the ravaged klaviature keyboard of brilliant and arrogant letters! The Poetry has no borders, customs, wickets in the imagination of the soul of the human being! The Poet elaborates verses of the magma from the recital of inspiration in the garden that was once empty of music!he The matelot souce is the doctoral nectar of the Burgundy castle, patronage homestead, my dear blue princess, the kitchen of the supreme wine sauce, and the moonlit crimson vines! The Beauty is a transitory landscape in the mirror of time! The pitch black tar of melancholy clouds infests the verses of the composition! The Man of Words is a malleable terracotta vase in the poetic hands of the sculptor of all things! The orange bird of summer subtropical geography, the wise orange tree, is perched on the porch of the pink dawn, singing Preambles of FREEDOM! The brunette beauty of the summer tropics, has the skin, modeled by the brush, the poetic sun of love! The girls with the blue smile looked at me in the chords of the stars, the guitar of the night! Grapevines dream scarlet, telluric marriages, in the season of poetry, in the epithelial heat, of the fertilization of the love of the vines! Poetry is a lyrical constitution, inspired by the metric of the harmonious happiness of love, and marred by the plot, the dark and lugubrious feelings, of the literature of death! Moonlight is a poetic paragraph of the night, which cleanses the heart of the anguish of the soul. @@@ ZZZ


    Purple prose i think is the way to describe your comment....

    daniel oliveira

    @romber58 I appreciate in the roses the tenderness of the petals. and the reality of the thorns, and the purple color, evokes the flowers of unreality; yet I am in reality of all things! It means, too. dignity! Thank you very much for your attention @@@ ZZZ

    Is it me or has this young girl in the video she has a touch of Kate Bush and the Looks of Saoirse Ronan Love the song and Video
    Also, Olivia Newton-John has a brilliant cover of this Classic.

    Dave Theone

    Instantly I thought Kate Bush, but for me this video girl is more attractive and sexier than KB was.

    Dj Billy Bop Dj Billy Bop

    @Dave Theone Nah Kate for me and i know Kate has Makeup on just take a look

  33. john smith

    Obviously amateur, which makes it all the more heartwarming. The vitality of youth is so special. Perhaps because it can be fleeting. It would be not unreasonable to think that George would have preferred this version over any professional stuffy one. Good job guys and please don’t stop here. He has a big library of music just waiting.

  34. Linda Röth

    this one, what is my life, became very big. LM radio from Lourenzo Marques, had to struggle to tune in in kenton on sea, went loud. wrote the song down. it brings me to tears. linda gets defrauded by her two brothers john and charles. john marries a bitch and breaks up our family. stan butt gets famous with his buttcat 6 years before his death. john gets into the biggest trouble. i have to help kerry!!

    The outpouring of poetry is the bridge of the visionary sunset, of the country of soul literature! οἰνοπότης, ου = [oinopotés] ἀγάπη - [agape], in the vine of Cana is the nectar of a God! I lost all things because of the sublimity of knowing, λόγος [logos] !!! The cuckoo of poetic inspiration, is the bird of continental varnish, which sings and tells, the stanzas of the antithesis of the triumphal ode! Understanding the aquilon wind changes the poet's heart! The illusionist theater of silver convex mirrors shuffles and distorts the cards in the mind game! The essence of the stratum of the divine being is the origin of the inspiration of poetry! The musketeer's rapier has the brightness and the splendid look of your sincere heart. and He is willing to fight for the love of his blue Princess, the thalamus of the scarlet sky! The poetic hummingbird, in the ethereal blue, of the flower of lotus, flutters, tense and absorbed in love, and joy! The poetic feminine skirts, in the measures and lengths, arouses and awakens, elucubriings and digressions, endless imaginative! The feminine principalities are conquered by the long-suffering words! The Moonlight Bride, came surfing, in the waves of nacár, of the blue ocean! The blue sea of ​​lost idylls, is in the little stars, the poetry verses! The poetic Soldiers of the future prologue will be noted for their psychological armor, and their thoughts will be filtered by geometry; anti emotional instability and anti heart dissonance! The blue musketeer of moonlight enters, through the curtains, the endless summer night @@@ ZZZ

    Beautiful song but the use of the Veterans cemetery pushes the line in my humble opinion. Nobody should dance in such a place.

    Karl Caddick

    Quite the opposite I believe the veterans would be well chuffed, see life in its prime

    Roger Warde

    What about the Veterans family members. Do you think they would be equally chuffed.

  60. justin kipper

    This is the "official video'? WTF?

  61. geo_ neo9

    Life is a game a game for soul growth. Once all souls reach 12d consciousness ie become pure light. What happens is the expansion of space will draw back to nothing again and the mass of spirits would manifest via love the whole of the whole. It is known that a mass of load of people can manifest a new universe as it is now. Obviously once we have reached a higher dimension. For we are multi dimenatianal beings. True evolution of man is the evolution of consciousness. We came here to learn how to manipulate energy. Ascension is happening right now as we speak. Prepare your minds as this year is bigg 2020 vision.

    She's doesn't have to be George harrisputz she's beautiful gravely and lovely and elegance on her own , I'd put her on a pedestal just to be disappointed and tell her she's exceptional just to be exploited and I'd give her all my money just so she could make some origummys , She probably thinks I'm a joke but I'm just trying to be funny 😉 , #Courtney Barnutts.

  70. Christopher Lewis

    This song is amazing...

    This video is cold, wet, garbage.
    Seriously, wtf...

    There is no variable and imbalance of change in the gift of inspiration! The acade is in the agora of poetry, proclaiming the edict of love! The Factory of words, in the world of poetry, is the address, open to all people! The magic of forms, of poetic literature, is the wisdom of the imagination! I am walking, thick fog, from the understanding of the essay! Thought, from the man of words, is a bolico, on the highways of contemporary times! Abstraction and alienation is the separation of the social heart, but the abstracted still remains hostage to the natural senses! I discover myself being tested in the arena of life's events !! The Text and the context of love is in the fire of true feelings! Love is an indirect transitive verb, conjugated in the first and second person of the sincere heart and the poetic soul! Forget a love. It's the only way to cure the idyllic wound of the heart! Hope, has giant wings, to escape, from the chaotic, irreversible system! The hope of inspiration never ends! The hammers. poetic burgundy built the wall of words of cultural reflection! The barometer, from the composition versis, measures the wind speed of inspiration! The human being, with the heart of a monster, walks the street of civilization! The killer of wordsis in thealcaçova of the darkness of the night! The poetic carabiner shoots feasts. of verses, to warn, the work of literary composition @@@ ZZZ

    justin kipper

    Keep practicing...real poets use real words and understand sentence structure and how to use punctuation. But I know that everyone didn't get past the 9th grade, so I'm cool with it.

  77. crapple009

    The song is from 1970. But the clip is from 2016. How is this an official George Harrison clip, bearing in mind that he died in 2001?

    The Blue Musketeer of the Moonlight meditates, in the palace of castles, electronic, in three dimensions, of star geometry, of thoughts! Blue musketeer, from the moonlight, unsheaths, the look, in the bright colors, of the future! The blue musketeer, in the moonlight, has in his hands the harness, the understanding of solitude! The blue moonlight musketeer brings to his constellation night cloak at the forefront of his soul! I'm leaving, tomorrow, I'm leaving, tomorrow I left on the table a love poem written with tears and ferfor! In the back of the fairy, of the figures of speech, love is a hyperbole, of spilled seas, over hearts! The star fisherman has the tear on the hook, in the darkness, of poetic literature! The Ethnic Tiger has carved its radical claws on my customs chest! The orange bird sings in the lightness of the whiteness, the light of dawn, an unprecedented repertoire! Happiness is real when the heart is pure! In the alcandora of starry night, the moon is the epithelium of my dear blue princess of yellow topaz! The cicada of the poetic vernacular has symphony chimneys, shrill musical notes! The Angel of Algebra, plays basketball, in the big bottle utopia! May the Father of light overflow the musical notes from all the stars upon all of you @@@ ZZZ

    Lots of symbolism in this video - Leaving home for the first time (shrouded by fog), being off balance and wondering which direction to go (middle of the street on the double yellow lines), forming an open box on her heart, letting go of our childish ways (playground), growing in the sunshine (the garden), dancing even though we are surrounded by death (running pirouette through cemetery), first love then lit by sunlight (forbidden forest), both are wearing yellow and white tops (Yellow is the symbolic meaning of optimism, idealism and hope. White is purity), etc. etc. etc. - WOW!

    The Measure, the metric, the ruler of architecture, the verses of poetry! The contemporary Attica of the poetry verses is in the poetic Athenaeum of the acade, the man of poetry! The Poet is in the court, of etmology, of words! The brightness of the angel of the stars illuminates the verses of the antithesis of the ode! In the epitaph of the verses of the composition literary , henceforth, it is written: Poetry is a revolution of bloodless words! The Poetry, calls into existence, the world of fairy tales! The dagger of betrayal has cut an isthmus in my soul! The estelionate of feelings is a crime of the heart! Love does not resents, from the atrocious hand of evil! Who imagined the fantasy of geometry? In the catadura of the hurricane lion, fear is an extinct inheritance! The smiles of the elderly, is the prism of the rainbow, the flowers ofeternal spring ! The apothema of the parietal lopo, parenetic of the regular epigone, is the abyssal difference of the primate lemurs of poetic composition! The man of words is in introspection and introversion of the blind of the heart! My blue Princess, is the sun petal of love! My blue princess is a lyrical bouquet of entries and vignettes, of inspiring versis! The foreshadowing of love is noticeable to the infinite details of life! The circumflex accent of pleasure and delight in anatomy outlines the compass of the carving, the contours and curves inward, the lines of the stanzas of female poetry! A woman's hips, shakes, more than the ship on the high seas! The woman is closed scissors, and an open compass! The thunder and lightning, the strumming, strings of the guitar, is the poetry of the virtuous chords of the musician's soul! Poetic Forbesco Indian, from Sarabatana Curare, shoots poisoned darts in the low relief of the shadow of the soul @@@ ZZZ
