Sometimes I think about how John had some tapes with songs like "real love" and "grow old with me" and "free as a bird" adressed to Paul in a time when they werent talking much and it MESSES ME UP A LITTLE!! Am I the only one?..
No, you’re definitely not the only one. It’s so sad that he wrote all those songs in those later years when Paul and him weren’t talking much (but at least they were on somewhat good terms). It’s just so clear how much John missed Paul and how badly he wanted be with him again and they never really got the chance, partly because of Yoko, but also because Paul and he were just so stupid at times. It’s so clear that John still loved Paul so much after all that happened and all those years and just…they should have pulled their damn heads out of their arses and fucking told each other how much they loved each other already! It’s so sad to think Paul only got those tapes in the 90s, so many years after John had passed. It messes me up more than a little. They were such beautiful love songs. Paul was a lucky man to have someone write those for him <3
