JOHN 1980: 'It was the first song I wrote that was consciously about my life.
(Sings) 'There are places I'll remember/ All my life though some have changed…' Before, we were just writing songs a la Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly – pop songs with no more thought to them than that.
The words were almost irrelevant.
'In My Life' started out as a bus journey from my house at 250 Menlove Avenue to town, mentioning every place I could remember.
I wrote it all down and it was ridiculous… it was the most boring sort of 'What I Did On My Holiday's Bus Trip' song and it wasn't working at all.
But then I laid back and these lyrics started coming to me about the places I remember.
Paul helped with the middle-eight.
It was, I think, my first real major piece of work.
Up till then it had all been sort of glib and throw-away.
And that was the first time I consciously put my literary part of myself into the lyric.'

PAUL 1984: 'I think I wrote the tune to that; that's the one we slightly dispute.
John either forgot or didn't think I wrote the tune.
I remember he had the words, like a poem… sort of about faces he remembered.
I recall going off for half an hour and sitting with a Mellotron he had, writing the tune… which was Miracles inspired, as I remember.
In fact, a lot of stuff was then.'

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 had 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
