The Beatles - Let It Be

For years I always thought that Mother Mary in the song Let It Be, was about Jesus’s mother. I was wrong. It was in fact about Paul’s mother. She died when he was 14 years old.  According to McCartney, he had vivid dreams of his mother during the end of the Beatles, and she said to him “It will be all right, just let it be.”

I think the lyrics take on a little more meaning this way.
