Confidante is the seventh track on Egypt Station, Paul McCartney 's 17th solo studio album.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?.....GQpcPfpUuE

With the song Confidante I happened to be at home and I was looking in the corner where, propped up, was my old Martin guitar that I normally just have there, so if I feel like playing the guitar I'll take it down and play it or try and write a song or whatever you do.

And I thought to myself: I haven't had time lately to play guitar. And it reminded me that, when we first got guitars years and years ago, it would be like a friend. It would be like a confidante: you'd go off into the corner, and you'd write a little song, and you'd sort of almost tell your troubles to your guitar.

It's a love song to the guitar. How the guitar was my confidante, and I told you every secret thing and, in fact, unlike my other so-called friends, you stood beside me while I fought.

And so it became a symbol of the guitar as a mate, as a friend, as a confidante.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Listening to this album and I just got to this song. I adore it already. Just the subject matter alone... and the song is good too... heart

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote
