From A Window is a song written by Paul McCartney (though attributed to Lennon/McCartney) for Liverpool beat group, Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas. Paul and John had earlier written I’ll Keep You Satisfied for Kramer, and Lennon had earlier written Bad To Me for him also. The song had been written during the sessions for A Hard Day's Night. Whilst The Beatles made no recording themselves, Paul is heard singing harmony vocals on Billy J. Kramer's released recording.

Lyrics[]

Late yesterday night,
I saw a light shine from a window,
And as I looked again,
Your face came into sight.
I couldn't walk on
Until you'd gone from your window.
I had to make you mine,
I knew you were the one.
Oh, I would be so glad
Just to have a love like that,
Oh, I would be so true
And I'd live my life for you.
So meet me tonight,
Just where the light shines from a window,
And as I take your hand,
Say that you'll be mine tonight.
Oh, I would be so glad
Just to have a love like that,
Oh, I would be true
And I'd give my life for you.
So meet me tonight,
Just where the light shines from a window,
And as I take your hand,
Say that you'll be mine tonight.
