"In My Life" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
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

    My InterpretationI guess I'll take a crack at this.

    "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 Ive loved them all"

    I think here he's referring to the places he's been, and obviously his friends and people in past relationships. He's saying that he still remembers them and that he loved them all, no matter what.

    "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"

    Now I think he's saying that out of all his friends and people from past relationships, he won't remember them as much as he remembers someone more special to him. Perhaps his wife, maybe a family member. And then I think he's saying that no matter how much he thinks of people and things that came before this person, he'll love them 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"

    I think he's saying here that even though he'll never lose his love for past friends and things, he loves this special person more.

    So basically, in my point of view, it's him saying that now matter what comes in his life, this special person [ or thing ] is first in his heart.



    Well, this might not be the exact meaning, but it's what I think it is, so... yeah.

    General CommentI absolutley love this song and having Ozzy do it made it even better. His voice sounds incredible in this song and the video is very beautiful. All the memories that he's had and that he's showing, it's just wow. I love it and I watch this video all the time.
