Here Comes The Sun, as The Attic opens for business

[embedVideo url=”https://vimeo.com/133397763″]
The Attic marked the official opening of its new office with a live performance of one of the most beautiful and inspiring songs ever written; The Beatles’ Here Comes The Sun’.

In January 2014 guitarist Nils Klofver came to Obelisk’s new home – the Attic, in St John’s Lane in Farringdon – to play the song written by George Harrison in 1969 for the classic Abbey Road album. His performance created the perfect feeling and mood for us to work in each day. Feel free to sing along …

“Here Comes The Sun”

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
It’s all right, it’s all right
