All Things Must Pass

song

Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day
Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

Sunset doesn't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up and must be leaving
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
None of life's strings can last
So, I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away

"All Things Must Pass" is a song by George Harrison, issued in 1970 as the title track to his triple album of the same name. It was originally released by Billy Preston (as "All Things (Must) Pass"), on his Apple album Encouraging Words, after the Beatles had rejected the song in 1969 for what would become their Let It Be album. "All Things Must Pass" was influenced by the music of the Band, after Harrison had spent time in Woodstock, New York, in late 1968, following the completion of the Beatles' White Album. Timothy Leary's poem "All Things Pass", a psychedelic adaptation of the Tao Te Ching, provided inspiration for the song's lyrics.

Widely regarded as one of Harrison's finest compositions, on release "All Things Must Pass" was viewed as a statement on the break-up of the Beatles, and its rejection by his former band has provoked much comment from biographers and music critics. Author Ian MacDonald described "All Things Must Pass" as "the wisest song never recorded by The Beatles". The subject matter deals with the transient nature of human existence, and the lyrics have been quoted frequently following Harrison's death in November 2001. Jim James, Sloan Wainwright, Yusuf Islam and Paul McCartney are among those who have covered the song.
