"Maybe I'm Amazed" as written by and Paul James Mccartney....
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time
Maybe I'm afraid of the way I love you
Maybe I'm amazed at the the way you pulled me out of time
And hung me on a line
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I'm a man and maybe I'm a lonely man
Who's in the middle of something
That he doesn't really understand

Maybe I'm a man and maybe you're the only woman
Who could ever help me
Baby won't you help me understand

Maybe I'm a man and maybe I'm a lonely man
Who's in the middle of something
That he doesn't really understand

Maybe I'm a man and maybe you're the only woman
Who could ever help me
Baby won't you help me understand

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you're with me all the time
Maybe I'm afraid of the way I leave you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you help me sing my song
Right me when I'm wrong
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

    General CommentThe way I took this song was the relationship is going through some trouble (Maybe I'm a lonely man who's in the middle of something that he doesn't really understand). And he is wanting comfort from his girl. I think this song is amazing.

    General CommentI think hes reached a feeling of amazement in the relationship. It sounds like such an obvious statement but it does define the song.Paul is amazed bc he cant believe he has the woman he does; hes amazed that he needs her so much.. instead of relenting over the necessity he takes on a feeling of gratitude-one that, just maybe, will get him through the tough times hes in.

    General CommentI think he's scared because he's never felt something so strong and real. It's my hubby's and mine song. :)

    General CommentJeez, Asstronauts, it's not about Heather Mills - it was written 35+ years ago about Linda (wife #1).

    This was on his first solo album (McCartney, released in 1970) and no doubt was written during the Beatles break-up. Paul has described the Beatles break-up as being quite emotional for him (probably all of them) - he said he felt a sense of loss and was depressed for a while and really didn't know what he was going to do. I think Linda was his salvation during this period and this song is a reflection of it.

    General CommentAbsolutely the best by McCartney, I think! When you have feelings so strong you try to catch up to it with your mind, but fail... One of the best love songs ever!

    General CommentThis song is more about how he needs his wife, how he doesn't understand life and really needs her help to get through it.

    General Commenti think this song is about the point in a relationship when you think it might really be something special, and your initial reaction is to pull back, out of fear. and you know you really don't want to but you're afraid of getting hurt. so this song is kind of like that plea to be patient and not let him get away...

    there's a remake by a band called Jem...of course you can't compare it to paul mccartney, but it's pretty good
