About

The lyrics were just gathering thoughts. Like ‘I go back so far, I’m in front of me’. I don’t know where that came from, but if I’d been writing with John he would have gone ‘Ok, leave that one in; we don’t know what it means but we do know what it means’.

Paul McCartney, from the back cover
