LHC: Featured Song “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away”


Throughout this month, we’re featuring certain Beatles songs that have a certain significance to our Book of the Month, The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg. The Beatles play a significant role in the novel, and were a big influence for Eulberg. Each of the songs we feature will be important to the novel.

Today, we’re featuring “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away,” which is quoted on page 165:

“How Can I even try? I can never win …”

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she’s gone I can’t go on
Feelin’ two-foot small

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

How can I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I’m in

How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
