Paul's song, Paul's feelings. But I'll go with what mith wants.

I didn't remember I started this topic. Well I put it here because it's a McCartney's song.

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...

In Here Today Paul asks and muses

And if I said
I really knew you well
What would your answer be?

Well knowing you
You'd probably laugh and say
That we were worlds apart

While listening to @Into the Sky with Diamonds's show on Lennon-McCartney collaborations, I thought of this connection. We may have John's answer to Paul's question in the song Hey Bulldog.

You think you know me but you haven't got a clue

That line was in Paul's subconscious if not at the forefront of his mind when he wrote those lines in Here Today.

This is a really nice link between lyrics of different songs. I'd like to add that John also sings "I know you, you know me"… from "Come Together." (Of course, he might have been referring to "old flat-top," and not Paul, so that might not add up to much.) ;-)

John thought, "You have found her, now go and get her" was meant for him.

In "Two of us on our way home" was Paul obliquely referring to Paul and John? ....

With Two of Us, while Linda may have inspired it, I don't think there is any escaping that it was, at least, partly about John. The lines, "You and I have memories / Longer than the road that stretches out ahead", just don't fit someone commenting on a relationship at its beginning, but seem more a recognition of a relationship coming to an end.
