"Here Today"

I would like to share this one song with you from the Paul McCartney concert. It is a song Paul released in 1982 as a tribute to John Lennon. Of the song, Paul says, "I was one day just sitting quietly in this little room with my guitar and these chords started coming out and I started having these thoughts as if I was talking to myself to John about our relationship and stuff..."

"And if I say I really knew you well
What would your answer be.
If you were here today.
Ooh- ooh- ooh- here today.

"Well knowing you,
You’d probably laugh and say that we were worlds apart.
If you were here today.
Ooh- ooh- ooh- here today.

"But as for me,
I still remember how it was before.
And I am holding back the tears no more.
Ooh- ooh- ooh- I love you, ooh

"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.

"If you were here today.
Ooh- ooh- ooh- for you were in my song
Ooh- ooh- ooh- here today.”
