John Lennon explained a famous lyric from The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever.”
He said he was “awake” for his entire life.
“Strawberry Fields Forever” appeared on the soundtrack of one of The Beatles’ movies.
John Lennon was asked if The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” represented a “new awakening” for him. Subsequently, John said the song was about being “awake” his whole life. He said his claim wasn’t “egomania.”
“It still goes now, doesn’t it?” John replied. “Aren’t I saying exactly the same thing now?”
John was asked if the lyric was a “new awakening” for him. “No, it wasn’t a new awakening,” he responded. “It was the fact that I was putting it on paper. I was awake all my life. You understand? I’ve always been, all my life.”
