The Other Me

Paul McCartney

know I was a crazy fool
For treating you the way I did   
But something took hold of me
And I acted like a dustbin lid
didn't give a second thought
To what the consequence might be     
really wouldn't be surprised
If you were trying to find another me


The other me would rather be the glad one
The other me would rather play the fool
want to be the kind of me
That doesn't let you down as a rule

I know it doesn't take a lot
To have a little self-control
But every time that I forgot
Well I landed in another hole

But everytime you pull me out
I find it harder not to see
That we can build a better life
If I can try to find the other me


 But if I ever hurt you
Well you know that it's not real
It's not easy living by yourself
So imagine how I feel

I wish that I could take it back
I'd like to make a different mood
And if you let me try again
I'll have a better attitude

Well I know that one and one makes two
And that's what I want us to be
I really would appreciate it
If you'd help me find the other me
