Paul McCartney wrote this song during a holiday in Greece. It spotlights the depression he suffered after the breakup of The Beatles and is a declaration of his love for Linda. McCartney recalled how the split of The Beatles affected him in Q Magazine December 2007: "You've gotta imagine having your 3 best mates suddenly be against you. And, yeah, I must admit, I hit the bottle, I hit substances. It was a very difficult period for me."
