Souvenir  Paul McCartney

 
 -------------------------------------------------------

PAUL McCARTNEY - SOUVENIR. From FLAMING PIE album.
Released on 12th May 1997.
 
 -------------------------------------------------------

I love this song because it reminds me a lot of John
(and also George). Many years had already passed and
there wasn't a bit of resentment left in his heart,but
just a great affection for the good things they shared
when they were together. Paul himself plays drums just
fine, much in the same way as Ringo used to do. (Sure
he still does and he is beating the skins in a couple
of Flaming Pie album numbers. Without a doubt, here he
is paying homage to his dear friends.
Verse 1
When you're fed up shedding too many tears
And your memory seems like just so many souvenirs
I will come to you to ease the pain.
Chorus
If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Everything is gonna come right in the end
Verse 2
When you're crying like a poor little child
And you're feeling like you never could be reconciled
Don't forget a word of what I'm saying. Oh
Chorus
If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Everything is gonna come right in the end
Middle Eight
Well, I can hold you too tight
I could never let you go,
But that wouldn't be right
So, why don't you let me know (let me know)
Let me know what you wanna do
Verse 3
Everybody's got a handful of fear
But tomorrow it may only be a souvenir
Of the way it was 'til it went away
Chorus
If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Every little thing is gonna come right in the end
Middle Eight
Well, I can hold you too tight
I could never let you go
But that wouldn't be right
So, why don't you let me know
Let me know what you want to do
Chorus
If you want me, tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Everything is gonna come right in the end
