“Here today”

And if I said
I really knew you well
What would your answer be?
If you were here today
Here today

Well knowing you
You’d probably laugh and say
That we were worlds apart
If you were here today
Here today

But as for me
I still remember how it was before
And I am holding back the tears no more
I love you

What about the time we met?
Well I suppose that you could say that
We were playing hard to get
Didn’t understand a thing
But we could always sing

What about the night we cried?
Because there wasn’t any reason left
To keep it all inside
Never understood a word
But you were always there with a smile

And if I say I really loved you
And was glad you came along
Then you were here today,
For you were in my song
Here today

“Dear friend” | Paul McCartney

“Dear friend”

Dear friend, what’s the time?
Is this really the borderline?
Does it really mean so much to you?
Are you afraid or is it true?

Dear friend, throw the wine
I’m in love with a friend of mine
Really truly, young and newly wed
Are you a fool or is it true?

Are you afraid or is it true?

Dear friend, what’s the time?
Is this really the borderline?
Does it really mean so much to you?
Are you afraid or is it true?

Dear friend, throw the wine
I’m in love with a friend of mine
Really truly, young and newly wed
Are you a fool or is it true?

Are you afraid or is it true?

C’est à la naissance de sa fille Mary, en 1969, que Paul McCartney a composé cette mélodie, inspiré par une reproduction de la toile de Picasso “Le Vieux guitariste”.

En 2008, un internaute surnommé yaronam a repris la mélodie de McCartney, en a fait un nouvel arrangement et y a ajouté des paroles afin d’en faire une chanson plus complète. Voici le résultat.

Et voici ce que yaronam dit de son travail:

“The first time I heard the song was when McCartney played bits of it on the “Parkinson” BBC TV Show a while ago. The thing is, he uses only 2 fingers for the chords, thus the name “two fingers”.
I did it as well on the bridge part.
I played around with it,changed it a bit, arranged it differently, added words (it didn’t have any clear words even on his unreleased song “When the wind is blowing”) I added a bridge part,and that’s about it.
I’m playing a Takamine 12 string guitar F400 model from way back in the early 80’s.
I have no commercial intention,
it’s just played for fun.
I wish Paul would listen to this,
and tell me what he thinks. But that’s just a silly dream.
Anyway, Here are the lyrics:

Waiting, I’ll be seeing her inside the empty fair,
Rusty ferris wheel, Dusty teddy bears

No Sideshows, the roller coaster sleeps Beneath a yellow sky,
And I’m still Hoping my love will drop by

Baby, don’t let me down
Hurry, don’t stand around
I’m sitting here, no circus in town

Waiting, waiting for my love

Who sighs? it’s just the whispering wind that’s Passing by,
Who cries? It’s just the sand in my eyes, that makes the tears Fall down, my dear,
but Never mind, you know I’ll still be here
Never mind, you know I’ll still be here
Never mind you know I’ll still be…(waiting)

Waiting for the only one
That I am thinking of
Waiting, waiting for my love

Baby, don’t let me down
Hurry, don’t wait around
I’m sitting here, no circus in town

Waiting, waiting for my love
