Looking Back

  Music is great because it can always explain exactly how we feel and think.  As we get older, we have a propensity to reminisce and I am no exception, especially as we roll into the holiday season.  As the band Chumbawamba says in their song Tubthumping;

He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times

  One of my favourite songs is In My Life by The Beatles, although it is a love song, it fits my mood to look back and reminisce about the good times and good friends and family, of which I have been blessed with many.


There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All this 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
