The Story Behind The Song: Paul McCartney track ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’, a love letter to Linda

The Beatles break up had hit him hard even though he knew it was inevitable but his wife Linda remained his rock throughout this dark period and her guidance made him stay strong through a time of such uncertainty. “Maybe I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time, Maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you,” McCartney sings on the track straight from the heart.

‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ was his way of rethanking Linda for pulling him through the split of The Beatles and is a song that captures his love for her, which gave him a reason to still be happy despite the thing that had previously been the only constant in his adult life.
