Dear Friend, Pauls song to John (right?) Atleast everything he sings in that song can be interpretended to his and Johns friendship, especially at that time.

But what I am wondering is: he sings "Im in love with a friend of mine". I know he doesnt mean in love that way, but still.. kind of weird way to put it ? Or was it a common expression to use for friendships at that time ?

Um not sure it's a ''common expression'' as such, but I don't think it's that weird, to be honest. They were pretty close, and he's trying to make up with him, isn't he, apparently?

I've told my friends I love them at times, it doesn't really mean anything when it comes down to it. It's just a more affectionate way to say you like someone, I suppose.

I always figured he was saying that he loved Linda (it does go on to say "Really truly, young and newly wed") yet that didnt mean he had moved on and that there was no place for John. "Throw the wine" being a way of celebrating their new parters and lives instead of bitching about how it caused separation and hanging on to hurts; lets have a drink and make up.
