In My Life

The Beatles - In My Life

There are places i'll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends i still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life i've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When i think of love as something new
Though i know i'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know i'll often stop and think about them
In my life i love you more

Though i know i'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know i'll often stop and think about them
In my life i love you more
In my life i love you more




Life is about change.

Friends and loved ones come and go. . . . and they may come back again. Same is true with places, events, things; they come and go and come back again. But even if fate pushes you back within the eyesight of an old friend, or gives you a plane ticket to the happiest place you have ever been on earth; sometimes there is that feeling that nothing is the same. Everything has changed.

It is always sad to see the good times go by, and heaven knows how much my heart broke after a loved one has passed on. In these situations the advice often repeated to me is, ‘that is life’. Win or lose, nothing ever remains the same.

In My Life is the perfect song in honor of past friends, love ones, and events. Hearing it always places my mind on instant rewind. I begin to see my parents, my highschool barkada and what the lyrics imply as the special someone. “In my life I love you more”.

The song’s message is a tribute to every loved one and every friend, however long we may be together, what matters most is that we came to be friends. They will always be the color 'in my life'.

So here’s to old friends and new – plus those I have not met – the Beatles hit, In My Life.
