"You Won't See Me" is a song by English rock band the Beatles. It was written by Paul McCartney, but listed as Lennon-McCartney. It was first released on the band's 1965 album Rubber Soul.[1] It is about McCartney's bad relationship with Jane Asher at the time, when she wanted to become an actress.[2] It was recorded during a very long recording session in November 1965. Author Mark Lewisohn called this final recording session a "marathon" recording session, because it lasted all through the night. This was to make sure Rubber Soul was released before Christmas.[3][4]
