"There are places I remember all my life, though some have changed/ Some forever, none 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 this life, I've loved them all." - Paul McCartney & John Lennon.
