With this song, McCartney was reconciling his relationship with John Lennon to himself and others. He told GQ: "After John died, there'd been a lot of talk about who did what and who liked who and did the Beatles argue. I was almost buying into this idea that me and John were fighting all the time. But I remembered it wasn't true, so I wrote the song about how, 'if you were here, you might say this or those... but I know better.'I remember well some of the things we did. It was really for me thinking about John. We had a great relationship and like any family, there's always arguments, there's always disputes, but in the end we loved each other and I wanted to make a song where I actually said "I love you" to John, so that was that song. It's quite emotional because it came from a real feeling about him, and I wanted to correct the record in my mind as much as in any one else's mind. There were some photos from that period which were really beautiful, and there's just him and me working and you could see we loved each other. So, once all these rumors go about, you almost buy into them yourself. So that song helped me set the record straight."
