Song lyrics
Words are flowing out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly
as they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting through my opened mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
They call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my opened ears
inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
And calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Jai guru deva
Jai guru deva

LENNON IS A GENIUS in every sense of the word the imagery in this song is clear evidence of that.

i will always love the line "tears of sorrow waves of joy" until i die it is perfection !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great song, but lacks on overall production, I think some people prefer fancier ones. I love the intro.

OH gosh!!! I love that song too!!!....anyone heard the Rufus wainwright version...its really good.

and that sankrit line " Jai Guru Deva Om"...means something about "giving thnaks to the guru/teacher.....or live forever teacher/heavenly one".....couldnt find an exact translation, sorry
