One of My Most Favorite Songs.


"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." - John Lennon

One of my most favorite songs—and, a beautiful cover of it, too.

I love how these words are wrapped in the most delicate melody—they stand alone with honesty and simplicity.

These are the days before the use of auto-tuning...and these are the days, when the simplest of lyrics spoke volumes. 
"There are places I 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."

In my life, I have loved them all, too.

Namaste, my most beautiful friends—I hope my simple words sometimes bring you a smile.
