I'm So Tired [Beatles]

[Side Projects]

"Shione & Leo have a good chemistry, even more than I imagined. I'm glad everyone got into it." -James Iha, EMI video (translation from Japanese text)

 

Lyrics

I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink
No,no,no.

I'm so tired I don't know what to do
I'm so tired my mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you but I know what you would do

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind

I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired I'll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid get.

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind

Notes

Beatles cover by 湯川潮音 (Yukawa Shione), LEO今井 (Leo Imai), and James Iha. Appears on a Beatles cover album done entirely by Japanese artists.

According to a video (Japanese, no subtitles) by the other 2 artists, James picked the song, arranged and produced the track. Ironically, the song and its opening lyrics were also mentioned at the beginning of Billy Corgan's 2004 blog post that blamed James for breaking up the Pumpkins, so most Google searches turn up that first.
