There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done???

In the Beatles song “All You Need is Love” what do the lines “nothing you can…” mean?

I Have been thinking about it for months and can’t seem to make sense of it in the context of love.

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.

Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.

Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game

It’s easy.

There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made.

No one you can save that can’t be saved.

Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be in time

It’s easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,

All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.

All you need is love, all you need is love,

All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.

Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.

Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.

It’s easy.

Maybe something to do with a higher purpose and plan??? I dunno. What are your thoughts?

  • My understanding is that when two people are in love then anything is possible: love is a very powerful force.

    Musicians can write anything, sometimes it’s the emotional meaning within the music that you are meant to follow, rather than the literal meaning of every word, but I stand corrected. ~

  • Even if you amaze the world and pull off something that was thought impossible, you have only done something that was thought impossible. You haven t done something that was actually impossible, because the fact that you did it shows that it wasn t impossible. Obvious, right? But here s the thing: we are prone to grandiose yearnings to be so great that we actually do what cannot be done, sing what cannot be sung, etc. Set down that burden. Whatever you do, it s just going to be one more do-able thing. So relax. You don t need to meet some impossible standard of exceptionality. You only need love (to love and be loved). You can t do the undoable, but, through and for love, you can learn to play; you can learn to be you in time. And that s enough. It is, in fact, everything.

  • Nothing You Can Say

  • There’s nothing you can do, that can’t be done. All you need is Love. Everyone asks the qeustion what does that line mean?……The answer is Love, because only love can do, what can’t be done.

  • It’s saying that things like doing, singing, playing the game might not be do-able, but the real thing in life that’s important is love.

  • This is what I believe John Lennon meant:

    Nothing can stop you from doing what you want to do

    Nothing can stop you from signing what you want to sing

    Nothing can stop you from saying what you want to say, you just need to learn how, it’s easy; all you need is love

    Nothing can stop you from making what you want to make

    Nothing can stop you from saving the one you want to save

    Nothing can stop you from doing what you have to do, it’s easy; all you need is love

    Nothing can stop you from knowing what you want to know

    Nothing can stop you from seeing what you want to see

    Nothing can stop you from being who you want to be, it’s easy; all you need is love.

  • I actually think it is their way of saying that everything IS possible. Just my opinion though.

  • it’s pretty much sayin you can do anything.

    there’s nothing you can do – you can’t do anything

    can’t be done – can’t be done

    you can’t do anything that can be done – you can’t do anything

    you can’t do anything that can’t be done – you can do anything (wat’s bein said)

    Source(s): double negatives confuse me
  • That song telling you that; you can do everything if you willing to do as well..that is way it is easy. but, not similar with love.
