Song facts

From Wikipedia:

Nobody I Know is a song written by Paul McCartney (attributed to Lennon–McCartney) which Peter and Gordon recorded in an April 1964 Abbey Road Studio session: Peter and Gordon had had a UK/US #1 hit with the McCartney composition “A World Without Love” and McCartney wrote “Nobody I Know” with the specific intent of providing a follow-up hit for the duo. The track reached #10 UK and #12 US.

A French rendering entitled “Partir, il nous faut” was recorded by Petula Clark and issued on a 1965 EP headed by her hit “Dans les temps”.

Lyrics

Nobody I know could love me more than you
You can give me so much love, it seems untrue
Listen to the bird who sings it to the tree
And then when you've heard him see if you agree
Nobody I know could love you more than me

Everywhere I go the sun comes shinin' through
Everyone I know is sure it shines for you
Even in my dreams I look into your eyes
Suddenly it seems I've found a paradise
Everywhere I go the sun comes shinin' through

It means so much to be a part
Of a heart of a wonderful one
When other lovers are gone
We'll live on, we'll live on

Even in my dreams I look into your eyes
Suddenly it seems I've found a paradise
Everywhere I go the sun comes shinin' through

Nobody I know could love me more than you
You can give me so much love it seems untrue
Listen to the bird who sings it to the tree
And then when you've heard him see if you agree
Nobody I know could love you more than me
Nobody I know could love you more than me
