"No Words" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
You want to give your love away
And end up giving nothing
I'm not surprised, that your black eyes are gazing

You say that love is everything
And what we need the most of
I wish you knew, that's just how true my love was

No words for my love
You're burning love, sweet burning love
It's deep inside,
You mustn't hide, your burning love
Sweet burning love, your burning love

You want to turn your head away
And someone's thinking of you
I wish you'd see, it's only me, I love you

No words for my love

    General CommentI definitely think this is a song about John.

    "You Want To Give Your Love Away
    And End Up Giving Nothing
    I'm Not Surprised, That Your Black Eyes
    Are Gazing."

    I think this is reflective of John's personality... anyone familiar with John could see that.

    "You Say That Love Is Everything
    And What We Need The Most Of
    I Wish You Knew, That's Just How True
    My Love Was."

    Do I smell an "All You Need is Love" reference?

    "You're Burning Love, Sweet Burning Love"

    Hmm. "Burning Love" by Elvis Presley. Elvis is one of those artists whose music provided the initial basis of John and Paul's relationship. Seems important.

    "You Want To Turn Your Head Away
    And Someone's Thinking Of You
    I Wish You'd See, It's Only Me,
    I Love You."

    I think this verse is the most telling. It tells about John pulling away from the group and, more importantly, his intimate relationship with Paul, yet Paul continues to care about him.

    classicrockgirl, I agree that the "it's only me" line is enormously significant. Paul has shared that story many times, and once when asked what it meant to him, he replied "everything." therefore, Paul must have held the phrase dearly, and wouldn't have just thrown it out in a song without it being a conscious decision to use those specific words. It was a message to John, to let him know that he hadn't forgotten what they meant to each other, that he still loved him and always would.

    General CommentI'm glad i am not the only one that thinks this is basically a love song to John Lennon. Even though this is one of the few Wings songs co-credited to Denny Laine, i think the lyrics are total McCartney, and truly an intimate secret message to Lennon. Although McCartney and Lennon had both traded cutting jabs in songs for a few years on their early solo albums, i think this is McCartney's telling John he loves him and wants to get over the hate and fighting--and way before John's death and the obvious "Here Today" acknowledgements, as BandOnTtheRun was recorded in "73. By 1974, Paul and John were starting to be friendly again (see "A Toot & A Snore in '74" as John and Paul jams with Stevie Wonder).
    The first line, "You Say That Love Is Everything And What We Need The Most Of" is so clearly a reference to "All You Need Is Love" and the YOU that the song is about can then only be John.
    The last line, "I wish you'd see, Its only me, I love you" was the secret message to John, as only they would have known the special meaning.
    McCartney during interview much later: “Realizing he had hurt me with one of his comments, John lowered his granny glasses and peeking out from behind them said gently ‘It’s only me.’”
