In My Life
Lennon and McCartney 1965
There are places I'll remember But of all these friends and lovers
All my life, though some have There is no one compares with you
changed And these memories lose their meaning
Some forever, not for better When I think of love as something new
Some have gone and some remain Though I know I'll never lose affection
All these places had their moments For people and things that went before
With lovers and friends, I still can I know I'll often stop and think about
Some are dead and some are living In my life, I'll love you more
In my life, I've loved them all
