Paul lost his confidence sometime between 1971 and 2018

Ram 1971 – The Backseat of My Car

We believe that we can’t be wrong

Egypt Station 2018 – I Don’t know

What am I doing wrong, I don’t know
Where am I going wrong, I don’t know
Why am I going wrong, I don’t know
What’s the matter with me
I don’t know, I don’t know
What’s the matter with me
I don’t know, I don’t know

She’s A Woman and It’s Not True both have McCartney telling off other people who don’t see his love interest the way he does.

People tell me that she’s only
Foolin’, I know she isn’t.

Some people say she’s a bad girl
Some people think she’s a fool
Some people tell me she’s no good
But I’m telling you, “It’s not true, it’s not true, it’s not true”

Some people say she’s a loser
Some people tell me that she’s through
Some people say I don’t love her
But I’m telling you, “It’s not true, it’s not true, it’s not true
What they’re saying about her isn’t true”

While it’s not a Beatles recording, there’s the song Nobody I Know, written by Paul (and attributed to Lennon/McCartney), that reached #10 UK and #12 US for Peter and Gordon in 1964.

It has the repeated lyric of:

Nobody I know could love you more than me

as well as the inversion (of “you” and “me”):

Nobody I know could love me more than you

It’s cool enough that Paul McCartney in mid-August ’76, while touring North America, was competing on the hit radio airwaves (at #3 and #1) with his current hit against his former band’s decade-old song …and cooler that both songs are Paul originals, and have similar themes of ‘welcoming’ in their title. The earlier song was an ode to pot; whereas “Let Em In” could conceivably portray a protagonist who is too stoned and lazy to get up off his chair and answer his own busy door! And it mentions by name Paul’s Auntie Gin, who herself once tried a joint gifted by Paul to reassure her that he wasn’t destroying his brain with drugs. (Hilarity ensued, as told in Howard Soanes’ Paul bio)

That’s a satisfying one. John had the same ideas over the years and translated them in different ways.

John starts writing Now And Then in 1978:

“If we must start again, well we will know for sure, that I will love you”

Then releases (Just Like) Starting Over in 1980:

“It’s like we both are falling in love again, it’ll be just like starting over”

 

He’d obviously been thinking about this theme for a while

When I Saw Her Standing There

When I kiss her lips

When I feel low

When I feel blue

When I think about you I can say

When I want to kiss you, yeah

When I say that something

When I touch you I feel happy inside

When I get home to you

When I get you alone

When I tell you that I love you

When I ask you to be mine

When I do, you better hide all the girls

When I get home tonight I’m gonna hold her tight

When I get lonely people tell me that she’s only fooling 

When I was younger so much younger than today

When I held you near

When I think of things we did

When I see you go by, my oh my

When I awoke I was alone

When I call you up

When I saw him with you I could feel my future fold

When I think of all the times I tried so hard to leave her

When I think of love as something new

When I wake up early in the morning

When I was a boy everything was right

When I get near you

When I get older losing my hair

When I caught a glimpse of Rita

When I look into your eyes your love is there for me

When I hold you in my arms

When I cannot sing my heart

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide

When I loved you

When I find myself in times of trouble

When I see your smile replace every thoughtless frown

I was listening to the Beatles cover of “You’ve Really got a Hold on Me” and got thinking. John loved old rock and roll, and it became ingrained in his soul. He always looked back at it fondly, and got a lot of inspiration from it. “You’ve Really got a Hold on Me” in particular is very much him, in my opinion. He could have written it. Contradictions throughout the lyrics, which he obviously enjoyed. It’s funny as well as emotionally desperate.

For example:

“You’ve Really got a Hold on Me”
Oh, ho, ho, you treat me badly
I love you madly

I don’t want you
But I need you
Don’t wanna kiss you
But I need to
Oh, ho, ho You do me wrong now
My love is strong now

“Nobody Told Me”
Always something happening and nothing going on
There’s always something cooking and nothing in the pot

Everybody’s runnin’ and no one makes a move
Everyone’s a winner
and nothing left to lose
