"Friends To Go" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to leave
So I don't have to hide, I prefer they didn't know
So I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to go
I've been sliding down a slippery slope
I've been climbing up a slowly burning rope
But the flame is getting low
I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to go

You never need to worry about me, I'll be fine on my own
Someone else can worry about me
I've spent a lot of time on my own
I've spent a lot of time on my own

I've been waiting till the danger passed
I don't know how long the storm is going to to last
If we're going to carry on
I'll been waiting on the other side, till your friends are gone
So tell me what I want to know
I'll be waiting on the other side, for your friends to go

Someone else can worry about me
I've spent a lot of time on my own
I've spent a lot of time on my own

I've been waiting on the other side
For your friends to leave so I don't have to hide
I prefer they didn't know
So I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to go

I've been waiting on the side
I've been waiting on the other side
For your friends to go

    General CommentYou're right!

    Paul dedicated this to George Harrisoin because he felt that, during the making of the song, George was present in spirit. I don't know about that but anyway this song sounds sad despite the cheerful melody. Afte rall, the main character feels quite isolated and shy. "I've spent a lot of time on my own" - it sounds like a 40-ton-truck all over you and it's still a pop song. The narrator seems to be attached to someone else (whose friends he doesn't want to know anything about), maybe someone who actually cares for him, which causes him to face his normal state of isolation...

    It's hard to describe because it's perfectly constructed, the imagery it evokes is very powerful indeed. I can totally relate to the lyrics.

    General Commentthis song is about shyness, the trouble of expressing liking for a person when in a group and you just want to be one on one with that person, the problem is people often block one another from their potential destined mate because of their own selfish fear of losing their best friend or anything like that
