  • You used to be my confidante
    My underneath's darkest friend
    But I fell out of love with you
    And brought our romance to an end

    I played with you throughout the day
    And told you every secret thought
    Unlike my other so-called friends
    You stood beside me as I fought

    In your reflected glory eye
    Could dream of shining far off lands
    Would serpents turn to bits of string
    And play like kittens in my hand

    In our imaginary world
    Would butterflies wear army boots
    And stomp around the forests
    Chanting long lost anthems
    Long lost anthems

    You used to be my confidante
    My underneath's darkest friend
    But I fell out of love with you
    And brought our romance to an end

    I played with you throughout the day
    And told you every secret thought
    Unlike my other so-called friends
    You stood beside me as I fought
    You stood beside me as I fought

    You used to be my confidante Writer/s: Paul James McCartney
