JOHN: Hey! Did you dream about me last night?
PAUL: [long pause] I can’t remember.
JOHN: Very strong dream. We both dreamt about it. It was amazing! Different dreams, you know, but I thought you must’ve been there. It’s like I was touching you.

- Change your name to Paul McCartney.

Paul McCartney talking about John Lennon.
Dear Friend - (Paul McCartney &) Wings
“… that was a direct message to John”
- Paul McCartney
After hearing John Lennon’s How Do You Sleep? (an attack to Paul’s Too Many People), Paul had had enough with such bitter fights and arguments, and replied with a more peaceful and gentle song, Dear Friend (released in Wing’s first album, Wild Life). It is seen by many as an attempt at reconciliation with John, strung together in a beautifully flowing and simple melody.
“Dear friend, what’s the time?
Is this really the borderline?
Does it really mean so much to you?
Are you afraid or is it true?
Dear friend, throw the wine
I’m in love with a friend of mine
Really truly, young and newly wed
Are you a fool or is it true?
Are you afraid or is it true?”
