Album obsahuje pouze šest písní Johna Lennona, zbytek pochází od Yoko Ono. Ta vybrala demoverze Lennonových písní, které nahrál v období práce na albu Double fantasy. V souvislosti s vydáním tohoto alba byl v neděli 3. června 1984 na stanici MTV odvysílán stejnojmenný speciální pořad, pod kterým je podepsána Yoko Ono. 26 minut zabírá rozhovor s Yoko Ono a jejím šestiletým synem Seanem s hudebními ukázkami. Ve filmu zazněly písně Borrowed time a Grow old with me a objevily se raritní soukromé záběry zachycující malého Seana, Beatles a dosud nezveřejněné záběry z nahrávání alba Imagine.

První píseň, kterou John Lennon nahrál pro album Double fantasy. Napsal ji v roce 1977. 15. března 1984 píseň vyšla ve Spojených státech na singlu s písní Yoko Ono Sleepless night.

Woke up this morning blues around my head
No need to ask the reason why
Went to the kitchen and lit a cigarette
Blew my worries to the sky

I'm stepping out

If it don't feel right you don't have to do it
Just leave a message on the phone and tell them to screw it
After all is said and done you can't go pleasin' everyone
So screw it...

I'm stepping out

Baby's sleeping the cats have all been blessed
Ain't nothing doing on TV (summer repeats)
Put on my space suit I got to look my best
I'm going out to do the city

I'm stepping out

I'm stepping out (hold it down)
I'm stepping out
I'm stepping out
Gotta gotta gotta gotta get out
I'm stepping out babe
Just awhile
Ain't been out for days...

Sleepless night
(Ono)

15. března 1984 píseň vyšla ve Spojených státech na singlu s písní Johna Lennona I'm stepping out.

Sleepless night
The moon is bright
All I'm asking for is
Three minute love

Legs
What am I going to do with my legs
They're so hot
They won't stay on the cot
And they're screaming!

Sleepless night ...

Head
What am I going to do with my head
It's so light
It just gives me the fright
It's full of champagne and dreams

Sleepless night ...

This brush must sell like crazy
I mean there's a lot of lonely people out there

I wanna go to the ball
I wanna give it all
I'll take it all

Sleepless night
All I'm asking for is...
What am I asking for?

I don't wanna face it
(Lennon)

Píseň napsal John Lennon v roce 1977 a natočil zároveň její demoverzi. Znovu ji nahrál v roce 1980 pro album Double fantasy, ale nakonec vyšla až po jeho smrti.

Say you're looking for a place to go
Where nobody knows your name
You're looking for oblivion
With one
Eye on the Hall of Fame

I don't wanna face it oh no
I don't wanna face it no no no no
Well I can dish it out
But I just can't take it

Say you're looking for some peace and love
Leader of a big old band
You wanna save humanity
But it's people that you just can't stand

I don't wanna face it oh no
I don't wanna face it no no no no
Well I can sing for my supper
But I just can't make it

Well now you're lookin' for a world of truth
Trying to find a better way
The time has come to see yourself
You always look the other way

I don't wanna face it oh no
I don't wanna face it no no no no
Well I can see the promised land
And I know I can make it!

I don't wanna face it

I just can't face it no more
Every time I look in the mirror
I don't see anybody there

Don't be scared
(Ono)

Don't be scared
Don't be scared
Don't be scared to love
Better to love than never love at all
Don't be scared

Don't be shy
Don't be shy
Don't be shy to tell
You may lose the chance to tell
Don't be shy

When your hearts are lit
Drop your survival kit
Then you never have to
Run or split

Sun in the east
Moon in the west
This boat's moving slow
There's no land in sight at all
Away we go

Don't be scared
Don't be scared
Don't be scared to love
It's better to love than never love at all
Don't be scared

Nobody told me
(Lennon)

Píseň měl původně nazpívat Ringo Starr. Lennonova verze vyšla 6. ledna 1984 ve Spojených státech na singlu společně s písní Yoko Ono O' sanity, v Británii pak o tři dny později. 15. června 1985 vyšla reedice singlu (Polydor POSP 700).

Everybody's talking and no one says a word
Everybody's making love and no one really cares
There's Nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs
Always something happening and nothing going on
There's always something cooking and nothing in the pot
They're starving back in China so finish what you got

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed - strange days indeed

Everybody's runnin' and no one makes a move
Everyone's a winner and nothing left to lose
There's a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu
Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground
Everybody's crying and no one makes a sound
There's a place for us in the movies you just gotta lay around

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed - most peculiar, mama

Everybody's smoking and no one's getting high
Everybody's flying and never touch the sky
There's a UFO over New York and I ain't too surprised

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed - most peculiar, mama

O' sanity
(Ono)

It's only sane to be insane
Psychotic builds a castle
And neurotic lives in it
I don't know what to do with my sanity
When the world's at the verge of calamity

O' sanity, o' sanity
What am I to do with you
Drink up, shoot up, anything you please
But you're always standing behind me like a devil in hell

O' sanity, o' sanity
Why don't you let me go
Let go, let go, cut it out!

Borrowed time

Píseň napsal John Lennon v létě 1980 na Bermudách. Inspirací mu bylo album Boba Marleye Burnin'. Píseň vyšla na britském singlu 10. března 1984 společně s písní Yoko Ono Your hands, ve Spojených státech 11. května 1984.

When I was younger
Living confusion and deep dispair
When I was younger ah hah
Living illusion of freedom and power

When I was younger
Full of ideas and broken dreams (my friend)
When I was younger ah hah
Everything simple but not so clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Now I am older
The more that I see the less that I know for sure
Now I am older ah hah
The future is brighter and now is the hour

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Good to be older
Would not exchange a single day or a year
Good to be older ah hah
Less complications everything clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Your hands
(Ono)

Forgive me my little flower princess
For crushing your delicateness
Forgive me, if you could forgive me

Forgive me my little flower princess
For selfishness
Forgive me, forgive me

Well I know there is no way to repay you
Whatever it takes I will try to
The rest of my life I will thank you (thank you, thank you)
My little...
If you'll forgive me my little flower princess
Never too late unless you can't forgive...

Time is on our side
Let's not waste another minute
'Cause I love you my little friend
I really love you

Give me just one more chance
And I'll show you -- take up the dance
Where we left off
The rest of our life is the...my little
(I'm home)

Let me count the ways
(Ono)

Píseň napsala Yoko Ono v létě 1980 podle příběhu přátelství mezi básníky Robertem Browningem a Elizabeth Barrettovou. John Lennon se tímto tématem inspiroval také a napsal svoji verzi (píseň Grow old with me).

Let me count the ways how I love you
It's like that gentle wind you feel at dawn
It's like that first sun that hits the dew
It's like that cloud with a gold lining telling us softly
That it'll be a good day, a good day for us
Thank you, thank you, thank you

Let me count the ways how I miss you
It's like that oak tree in my childhood garden
It's like that first summer I spent in Egypt
It's like that warm evening you read to me
Both knowing deeply
That it's a good time, a good time for us
Thank you, thank you, thank you

Let me count the ways how I see you
It's like that lake in the mountain you heard about
It's like that autumn sky that stays so blue
It's like that air around me that holds me gently
Whispering strongly that you're always there, always for me
Thank you, thank you, thank you

Grow old with me
(Lennon)

Píseň Johna Lennona vychází z příběhu básníků Elizabeth Barrettové a Roberta Browninga. K napsání ho inspirovala Yoko Ono, která na toto téma složila píseň Let me count the ways. Lennonova verze obsahuje úryvky z Browningovy básně Rabbi Ben Ezra. Studiovou verzi nahrávky John Lennon nikdy nedokončil, píseň se zachovala pouze na domácí kazetě nahrané v listopadu 1980. Tato píseň byla jednou ze čtyř skladeb, které Yoko Ono v devadesátých letech nabídla ostatním členům Beatles k dokončení. Po Free as a bird a Real love měla být třetím singlem, ale poté, co předchozí tituly nedosáhly vrcholu hitparád, z vydání dalšího singlu sešlo.

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love
God bless our love

Spending our lives together
Man and wife together
World without end
World without end

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love

You're the one
(Ono)

Mountains may move
River may run
But you make me be myself
You make me be
How do I tell you
How do I tell
You're the one

Stars may move
Time may run
But you make me free myself
You make me free
How do I tell you
How do I tell
You're the one
You're the one

In the world's eye
We were Laurel and Hardy
In our minds
We were Heathcliff and Cathy
In a moment of wisdom
We were a wizard and a witch
In a moment of freedom
We were Don Quijote and Sancho
In reality
We were just a boy and a girl
Who never looked back

How do I tell you
How can I tell you
How could I tell you

You're the one
