Paul McCartney - From A Lover To A Friend Lyrics




And when the time comes around
We will be duty bound
To tell the through of what we've seen
And what we haven't found
Will not be going down
Despite too easy ride to see

From a lover to a friend
Take your own advice
Let me love again
Now that you turned out to be
Someone I can trust
Someone I believe

Ohh la la la
How can I walk when I can't find a way
I have a dilemma
All I want is to tell me
You're going to take it away

From a lover to a friend
Take your own advice
Let me love again
Now that you turned out to be
Someone I can trust
Someone I believe

And what we haven't found
Will not be going down
Despite too easy ride to see

From a lover to a friend
You turned out to be
Someone I believe

From a lover to a friend
Take your own advice
Let me love again

Ohh la la la
How can I walk when I can't find a way
I have a dilemma
All I want is to tell me
You're going to take it away

From a lover to a friend
From a lover to a friend
From a lover to a friend
Let me love again

Paul McCartney From A Lover To A Friend Comments
  1. Joy Stinson

    A beautiful song but tragic old heather gal ugly to him embarrassed him and downed him in front of others. I’m glad he and judge got her in end. This album GREATLY dissed my Macca and Beatles fans all over Internet I see in comments...they want TRADITIONAL Macca stuff but fuss he’s not edgy or adventurous enough, you know they say he’s middle of the road or sappy..the USUAL stereotypes..

  2. Joy Stinson

    Album has not received acclaim it deserves ...though Macca solo output has been re-evaluated in general and now seen as brilliant songwriter

  3. ᗪAMoήrỮ ➈➆

    The album cover does not fit the album at all

  4. Kildare Rios

    This song touches me deeply. Maybe it's my favourite between the olher hundreds...

  5. Giuliano Di Buti

    Fabulous !

  6. michavandam

    The first half minute sounds like a song George Harrison could have written.

    Paul and George only wrote one or two tunes together, isn´t it a pity?

    piggies1

    Isnt it a shame?

    Clive Bindley

    @piggies1 Did you 2 know George wrote a song with those lines in?
    Called, Isn't It A Pity?

  7. ROY FR

    Too many heather references on this album explaij why it isnt played or promoted a lot. I bought it and liked it...my copy didn’t have that freedom shite on, so good

  8. seekah1

    Guardian called it a masterpiece? Jesus, ok whatever.

  9. hungfao

    I like what Paul is trying to do here but wish the lyrics made sense. He's jumping around with context, the rhyme scheme is lazy and stale. And, what in the world does 'Despite too easy ride to see' mean??? It is said this is supposed to be about Linda. I hope not. She deserved better lyrics than this.

    ROY FR

    hungfao giving Paul song writing tips? Let’s hear one of yours then......

    hungfao

    Why should anyone give him song writing tips? That's the same attitude Paul has had since the middle 70's. When asked why he doesn't produce consistent material like 'Yesterday', 'Eleanor Rigby', or 'Hey Jude' since the Beatles' breakup, he indicated that since he is selling well enough already there seemed to be little point in putting himself through the hard work to come up with that kind of material all the time. He ran into a bit of flack when Nigel Godrich produced 'Chaos And Creation In The Backyard'. Godrich wouldn't let Paul settle so quickly and forced Paul out of his comfort zone. Paul was annoyed but the end result was a really fine collection of songs.
    You can easily take any 10 songs Paul did while with the Beatles and compare them to any 10 songs afterwards and find that his solo material isn't as enduring. Why? He didn't have John or George to act as his buffers is, perhaps, the obvious answer. But let's face it - critics agree that Paul's solo material is essentially middling and even Paul has stated that he wonders what he was thinking when producing some of his material over the years.
    Your position is flawed nevertheless. Paul's song writing itself is superior much of the time, IMO, and I don't criticize that. It's his lyrics that fall flat. I could cite dozens and dozens of examples over the decades and the objective perspectives would agree. But music is broadly subjective. Maybe you think a line like 'Despite too easy ride to see' is poetic brilliance. I do not. You could always prove me a fool by telling me what it even means.
    I've have a library of bootleg recordings of Paul formulating his songs and he does have a tendency to settle too easily on vague or meaningless phrases.
    As far as hearing one of mine? That is being worked on presently. You just might be hearing them very soon.

  10. Jason Lee

    classic Macca..

  11. Underdog

    That segway at 1.00 so reminds me of my departed slightly hippy ish Dad and his mates in the pub garden in the summer, with my bottle of coke and salt n vinegar crisps, a feint patchouli in the air - carefree days, for me at least around 6 years old - - im 43 now , the world is a different place. Mccartney has fantastic stuff post Beatle's, but there can be some rock ish stuff thats quite jarring....easy to excuse for tracks like this one, and many more to discover.

  12. Elisia Raybould

    This album is so underrated :( it needs to be appreciated more

    Ariel Linarte

    +Elisia Raybould No...it needs to be dropped...!!.

    Uetti

    +Elisia Raybould I absolutely agree!

    MaccaLennonStarr

    This was always one of my least favourite McCartney albums, and now that I'm listening to it more, it's starting to grow on me.. Not my fav - but a really decent album. I was too harsh in the past.

  13. tricia2 blair

    not exactly, lovely linda or my love, I think this was to heather............ish

  14. Martin Carmenia

    Obladi Oblada is one of the first ska type songs, seems a silly song but its not at all... I have to admit that lennon gone fucked up recording and plays very hard piano at the beggining...

    privatspace

    Obladi oblada is very good song,like all by Paul Genius McCartney.

  15. OSCAR G

    You have to admit Obladi Oblada sounds like something a Hobbit would sing :)

  16. Martin Carmenia

    let it be obladi oblada shit? cmon oscar...

  17. Felix Bernstein

    like if you hear kate bush

  18. captainreagar

    Look m8 don´t h8 alrite! Im entitled to my own opinyon mate so plz just leave me alone. My guinea pig died today and i just dont need this

  19. captainreagar

    About a million times better than that Freedom wankery

  20. OSCAR G

    @greenbeatles1 i totally see why people are turned off by stuff such as obladi oblada, let it be and alot of shit that hes done during the years. but as a solo artist hes probably the best of all four of them, plus he's probably my favorite bass player of all times. paul Mccartney is more than just a very very good musician, he's a true legend of biblical proportions living among us humans. thats exciting.

  21. Cameron Ladd

    This shows Paul's gifts for: melody, which goes without saying. Also, the way he tailors his singing voice expressively for whatever song being sung. And , the art of his bass playing. Now I like the slap-happy virtuosity of Flea just fine, but you can't beat Paul's lyricism, which is like a caress.

  22. Elizabeth

    geez, how can you NOT love paul?

  23. Eric McDowell

    Driving Rain is such an underrated album. Thanks for these postings!

  24. Magda Negrete

    uno de sus mejores discos no me canso de oirlo gracias paul
