Hi BLUEBIRD-THIS IS FOR U !
John left Yoko for a year and a half , during which he was living with Yoko's secretary MAY PENG. When he performed in NY with Elton John in 73', Lennon was asked what he wanted and he said to see Yoko in the audience.Nobody's sure if she was there but she got in touch after the Show, and brought him to her house for a StopSmoking session, but it took a whole weekend (The Lost Weekend) during which he decided not to go back to MayPeng-to come back to Yoko and go on with his life*(It turned up to be a StopRememberingSession*).It was 73'.A while after that, he sung this song asking from Yoko forgiveness but without remorse or any explanations. That's the explanation to the words of the song you transcribed " I know-I know "
I hereby attach the excerpts from MayPeng explanation about the topic.
NOTE THAT SHE TALKS ABOUT JOHN GOING TO SEE PAUL AND WORK TOGETHER on VENUS AND MARS (???) IN NEW ORLEANS...crazy,man...
Well, my friends, believe it or not...(Ripleys or MayPeng?)
Hope I was helpful.Anytime,
The same Friday night that Yoko setup the stop smoking hypnosis session with John at the Dakota without May, May said that John had planned on traveling down to New Orleans that weekend to join up with Paul McCartney and possibly start writing some songs with him for his upcoming album, 'Venus and Mars' that Paul was making in New Orleans. But alas, John's so-called one hour "stop smoking hypnosis session" turned into a long drawn out all weekend marathon session from which he never returned back to May or to his old life. May guesses that Yoko may have had John drugged, hypnotized and/or put into a trance. During the so-called hypnosis session, May believes that John was told to break off with May and everything in his past so he could be with Yoko and was told that Yoko was his "mother" who knows what is best for John. Several days later May finally ran into John at the dentist's office and John looked like he hadn't slept in days and appeared "zombie like" and had difficulty talking. Then a few months later, May found out that John has made a complete break with his past by no longer seeing anyone from his past except for Yoko. This break with the past also includes breaking off from his music which is symbolized by hanging a Civil War Dagger along with his guitar on a wall.
May remembered that Before John got back together with Yoko, he was planning on buying a house that he and May were to live in and that John had picked out. May said she lived with John for 18 months that she was with John
How kind of U to think of me
When I was out of sorts,
It really meant a lot to be
in someone's elses thoughts...
