Off of the 2005 release Chaos And Creation In The Backyard

This is a nice little tune with intricate melodies and modulating choruses. Paul was 63 when he released this, so its pretty unbelievable that he hasn't lost the ability to masterfully structure his songs and create tunes that stick with you. 

The final line "It's alright in your life/No more rain" is a cute ending despite being a liittle bit cheesey. This song doesn't have the formula to be a hit in this day and age, but I hope it is never forgotten.

I was just listening to this song yesterday. It's such a beautiful song and probably my favorite off of Chaos and Creation.

Some people have pain (i.e. depression) so deep that just smiling and laughing aren't enough. I don't want people who need anti-depressant medication to try to think they can overcome it with willful thinking.

If this song isn't about people who need anti-depressants, then I'm OK with the song.

Its not up to Paul McCartney to decide who needs anti-depressants and who doesn't. It is his job to cheer people up with his music, which is what he is trying to do. Certain hardships can be overcome with pure brainpower, but if there are deeper issues then those should be addressed by a healthcare professional not a music professional.

Yeah, I don't think he could put a warning label or an asterisk on a song.
