If I fell [LotD 52]

Lyric of the DayThe Beatles

And that's where I find myself today. At least, that's where I found myself on my morning commute, which is when I usually begin thinking about what song I'd like to write about. Lacking inspiration, I turned to the Fab Four and pressed play on A Hard Day's Night, an album that I don't listen to all that often. I was quickly reminded that "If I Fell" is probably my favorite Beatles song of all time.

"If I fell in love with you

Would you promise to be true

And help me understand

Cos I've been in love before

And I found that love was more

Than just holding hands"

It's a cool lyric for The Beatles to write, because so many of their songs, on first glance, could serve to convince you that they actually do believe that love is all about holding hands. Especially earlier in their career, The Beatles got lots of slack for writing surface-level lyrics without much depth or power. Then they sorta realized it - there are examples of this realization in the songs themselves - and changed. Easy!

Love is more than holding hands, but I'll be damned if I could explain it.think

True? Maybe.
