“I nearly died.” —The Beatles

Who among us hasn’t experienced this kind of devastation?

There are a few, I guess. Nietzsche said, “That which does not kill me makes me stronger.” Foolish man obviously never had his heart broken, making everything he ever wrote suspect.

No Reply by The Beatles

This happened once before,
When I came to your door,
No reply.
They said it wasn’t you,
But I saw you peep through your window.
I saw the lie, I saw the lie.
I know that you saw me,
‘Cause I looked up to see your face.

I tried to telephone,
They said you were not home,
That’s a lie.
‘Cause I know where you’ve been,
And I saw you walk in your door.
I nearly died, I nearly died,
‘Cause you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place.

If I were you I’d realize that I
Love you more than any other guy.
And I’ll forgive the lies that I
Heard before when you gave me no reply.

I’ve tried to telephone,
They said you were not home,
That’s a lie.
‘Cause I know where you’ve been
And I saw you walk in your door.
I nearly died, I nearly died,
‘Cause you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place.

No reply, no reply.
