  • I don't care where I go when I'm with you
    When I cry you don't laugh cause you know me

    I'm in you
    You're in me
    You gave me the love, the love that I never had

    You and I don't pretend; we make love
    I can't feel anymore than I'm singing

    I'm in you
    You're in me
    You gave me the love, the love that I never had

    Come so far when you think
    you think back
    You can't buy what we made, you and I

    I'm in you
    You're in me
    You gave me the love, the love that I never had Writer/s: PETER KENNETH FRAMPTON

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn May 22nd 1977, "I'm in You" by Peter Frampton entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #68; nine weeks later on July 24th, 1977 it would peaked at #2* {for 3 weeks} and it stayed on the chart for 20 weeks...
    Between 1976 and 1986 the British songster had eight Top 100 records; with three making the Top 10, his two other Top 10 records were "Show Me the Way" {#6 in 1976} and "Do You Feel Like We Do" {#10, also in 1976}...
    He came close to having a fourth Top 10 record when "Baby, I Love Your Way" peaked at #12, and that was also in 1976...
    Peter Kenneth Frampton celebrated his 65th birthday one month ago today on April 22nd, 2015...
    * The three weeks that "I'm in You" was at #2, the #1 record for those three weeks was "I Just Want to Be Your Everything" by Andy Gibb.
  • Fej from Sussex UkWhen I first heard it (one of the first records I bought in the 70's) I thought it was just a love song. However, having revisited it recently (2014) I looked at a video of him performing the song in Oakland in 1977. It struck me from the way he was singing, that the lyric could be about the audience and, specifically, the US audience, who appreciated him and gave him "the love that he never had".

    If the song was written in 1976, as I believe it was, then the line "Come so far when you think of last fall/You can't buy what we made you and I" could be a reference to the live recordings of Frampton Comes Alive, some of which were made in November 2005. In the Oakland concert he is certainly singing that to the crowd. In fact he sings "when you think...of Winterland", a direct reference to some of the recordings.

    The line "You and I don't pretend, we make love / I can't feel any more than I'm singing" might suggest the enjoyment he gets from performng music transcend everything else for him, including personal relationships and sex.
  • James from Diamond Bar, CaSummer of 1977- Never a better time - remember this playing all over Magic Mountain in California - Love this song
