May I start a cheeky discussion which has nothing to do with France (or it may depending on your choices)?
My life always seems to be in song lyrics and here are a couple that seem relevant at the moment.
Rod Stewart, Atlantic Crossing: “It’s Not the Spotlight”
If I ever feel the light again shining down on me,
I don't have to tell you what a welcome it will be.
I felt the light before but I let it slip away,
but I still keep on believing that it'll come back some day.
Bruce Springsteen, "Better Days"
Well my soul checked out missing as I sat listening
To the hours and minutes tickin' away
Yeah just sittin' around waitin' for my life to begin
While it was all just slippin' away
I'm tired of waitin' for tomorrow to come
Or that train to come roarin' 'round the bend
Every fool's got a reason to feel sorry for himself
And turning his heart to stone
Tonight this fool's halfway to heaven and just a mile outta hell
And I feel like I'm comin' home
Now I'm not bothered if you like my choices or not, but am just interested in what are yours.
