Song facts

For Give My Regards To Broad Street, I couldn’t think for a lifetime to write a song saying that. (…) So anyway, in the end, I decided, that was none, and nothing was coming, and I didn’t feel good about it. It felt like too intense a problem, so I do what I always do: I give up, haha! (…) So, that was good, that was of my brain.

Paul McCartney

I had been messing around in the studio with a bass thing. And it was just jamming, one day, when I had nothing to do, coming here, just having some fun on some of the equipment. And this was a bass I had, with an echo device on it. And I’d been playing, those notes (humming the melody line). And the echo was taking care of the rest of it. So it was going… (humming again) …and it made this tune. It was a riff and it went on and on and on for hours. But I asked them to tape it, just in case, because I thought it was just a good idea for something. (…) We ended up using that little peace of echoed bass at the very beginning of the picture, when the titles came on. So I took those notes, and wrote the tune called No More Lonely Nights, which then we used it as a theme tune.

Paul McCartney

I found it quite amazing doing No More Lonely Nights with Paul McCartney. In one three-hour session with a band we learnt it and put it down, and Paul played piano and sang the lead vocal live, and I put the guitar solo down, bang.

Lyrics

I can wait another day until I call you
You've only got my heart on a string
And everything a' flutter

But another lonely night might take forever
We've only got each other to blame
It's all the same to me love
'Cause I know what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights
No more lonely nights
You're my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there

May I never miss the thrill of being near you
And if it takes a couple of years
To turn your tears to laughter
I will do what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights (Never be another)
No more lonely nights
You're my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No, I'll never go away
Yes, I know what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights (Never be another)
No more lonely nights
You're my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No, I'll never go away
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No I'll never go away
No more lonely nights
