This is a fascinating song. 

So clearly a song of apology and devotion to Paul, and a blatant statement that he loved him more than "the beatles". Its full of riffs and quotes of Paul songs lyrically and musically there is no denying it. 

John gives it a really strong vocal and guitar part. Sounds very much like he wanted to heal things with Paul at this point. 

 

"I put myself in your place, as you did for me"

"I love you more than yesterday"

 

"I Know...I know" was apparently what John and Paul said to each other repeatedly on their first acid trip together.
