      How understand this words
      "But we always came back to the songs we were singing
      At any particular time" from "The Song We Were Singing"?
      Does "speculate about the cosmic solution" means that at any particular time then we feel the same way we sing same songs? Sow if people sing same songs - that means that they feel the same inside. So is it "cosmic solution"? That we all feel so equally at the same particular moments or situations in our life?

        And does it mean that music unite all of the people in such way?

          In general that's what it means. Singing songs together connects people and bring the world together.

          What Paul talked about was his relationship to John Lennon. So I guess it means, no matter what issues they both had about different topics, at the end they both came together again to write and sing new songs.

            But why "particular" time? And why "any"? This words more suitable to the first way of understanding this lyrics. In second way they are unnecessary.

              AlexeySmirnov:But why "particular" time? And why "any"? This words more suitable to the first way of understanding this lyrics. In second way they are unnecessary.

              I guess it's because it happened very often, so that Paul said "It could happen any particular time".
              No matter what else, at "any particular time" they still will be back together and singing songs.
              I doubt that there is a meaning in every single word, the lyrics just fit well in the tune and in the song. Analogously you get what Paul means.

                I think sometimes that there is no meaning in this song such i wish it to be. I'm not very good in English so i couldn't decide about shades of meaning. And so i wrote there.

                The matter is that a half year ago i accidentally discover the way how to in a simple way show to many people around the world that they feel so same that there is no need "for fussing and fighting" with each other cause we all one - one but in different bodies - something like that. I was really surprised how it simple can be. You need combine only one simplest psychological test and songs. I found out that lyrics of the songs that i was listen to in some particular moments - when i was in different moods - they tells the same thing as results of the test. And you know what? I not always understand lyrics of the songs - cause i sometimes not well in understanding English aurally with my ears - but i read well - so sometimes i remember songs only for they melodies. And then i pass the test and read it's results - and only after that i translate lyrics of the song completely - because some word i understand in any way - and when i compare them - sometimes they match perfectly.
                So there is some kind of magic that i feel the same - music is a feelings - with author of the song when he and i think about same things.

                And when in a two weeks ago i was searching for "Bluebird" accidentally - what a stroke of luck! - i found this song. And when i heard only first chord - then i understand that i feel the same - music make goose pimples have covered my skin. And then i translate text - and i was surprised in very strange way.
                Because of my idea i see world in different light. And when i was trying to tell to others about my idea - they don't believe that it will work. So they "give the game away".

                World Tonight

                I saw you sitting at the center of a circle.
                Everybody, everybody wanted something from you
                I saw you sitting there
                I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music.
                Caught you playing, praying to the voice inside you
                I saw you swaying there

                I don't care what you wanna be
                I go back too far; I'm in front of me!
                It doesn't matter what they say
                They're giving the game away
                I can see the world tonight
                Look into the future.
                See it in a different light.
                I can see the world tonight
                I heard you listening to a secret conversation.
                You were crying, you were trying not to let them hear you
                I heard you listening in

                Never mind what they wanna do
                You've got a right to your point of view
                It doesn't matter what they say
                They're giving the game away - hey - hey.
                I can see the world tonight
                Look into the future
                See it in a different light
                I can see the world tonight

                But more strange thing happens when four days latter i look through all the album "Flaming pie" and found "Song we were singing" and read it.
                There is such magic coincidence that second song tells too about something like that i was thinking of. Is it simple coincidence - or it's something more? There i should say that i never listen to this songs before - i know all of Beatles songs, many of Wings - but that songs i heard in the very first time.

                So i was very inspired by this songs - what if Paul was thinking of about same thing ( remember what i was talking about that i simple feel the music - and if i love it in any particular moment- it can means that i think about something that author was think when he was writing song)

                But he didn't have the way to show to all the people this idea.
                But i think that now i have found a key.

                And i want to sing this song (Magic Wands ? Black Magic)
                There is a crescent key
                that locks a hole in the door
                into the pit of your heart
                the future is the reward
                white light my time has come
                all night out on the run from black magic

                Give me the final piece
                that holds the puzzles end
                of all the billions of stars
                that are the dreams of your friends
                how could anybody feel the same
                how could anybody feel the same
                black magic

                It is the person's eyes
                that have the answers in
                around the galaxy mars
                a new place to begin
                white light my time has come
                all night out on the run
                from black magic

                And maybe there is a time to sing this song - there is a final song from "Flaming Pie"

                Paul McCartney ? Great Day

                When you're wide awake
                Say it for goodness sake
                It's gonna be a great day
                While you're standing there
                Get up and grab a chair
                It's gonna be a great day

                And it won't be long oh no
                It won't be long it won't be long no no
                It won't be long it won't be long oh no
                It won't be long it won't be long ooh yeah

                Ooh ooh yeah
                Gonna be a great day

                And it won't be long oh no
                It won't be long it won't be long no no
                It won't be long it won't be long oh no
                It won't be long it won't be long oh

                When you're wide awake
                Say it for goodness sake
                It's gonna be a great day
                While you're standing there
                Get up and grab a chair
                It's gonna be a great day

                And there is so simple idea: I found about 50 matches by myself between test result and songs - they fit to each other very well. Some times i was crying or have goose pimples on my skin in moments then song touch the very depths of my soul. So i think ones - what if many people will do this - then we all will collect all of the matches - and save it. So after that when you feeling something in you soul - some feeling - you will be able to pass the test - it's very tiny and simple - it takes about 1 or 2 minutes to complete - and then you will be given a song that feels exactly how you feel inside you soul. So project will obvious demonstrate how we all feel the same.
                Musicians feel like any other people - but they have ability to bring out this feelings from the soul in form of the music to demonstrate it to others.

                  Yeah I agree with most of the things you said. It's sometimes destiny to hear the right song at the right time. ;) And music brings emotions out of you, that's for sure.

                    Alexey,
                    In the lyrics to The World Tonight, the line is:

                    I go back so far I'm in front of me

                    Do you have a Premium membership with access to Paul's Jukebox? That's a great place to play his songs and under "Song Info" you can see all the lyrics.

                      Nancy R,
                      Thank you for this remark about lyrics: i like word "so" to be in that place more then word "too"
                      Nope - i do not have one.

                        No matter what was happening in their lives, they could always leave the business table and return to whichever song they were recording at that moment.

                        It seems fairly straightforward.

                          Nevertheless they were singing particular songs in particular time - not any songs and not at any time - so maybe the song don't tells exactly about what i am saying here but it instantiate this idea about which i was talking.
                          Am i right?

                            AlexeySmirnov:I think sometimes that there is no meaning in this song such i wish it to be. I'm not very good in English so i couldn't decide about shades of meaning. And so i wrote there.

                            And there is so simple idea: I found about 50 matches by myself between test result and songs - they fit to each other very well.

                            Just wanted to say I am enjoying this thread. I like the Magic Wands song Black Magic and can relate to this whole thread...
                            When you don't see someone for a long time but when you do you can fall back into the same conversation it is so nice. And in the case of songwriters, collaborate to create melodies/lyrics it is magickal.
