Present laughter and the memory
Of troubles you have seen
It is written in your mind

Someone else brought this up a few months ago...
" it's good for a rainy day, too bad the weathers fine", My Little Girl.

I shall throw my hat into the ring with :

all the tears in the world
Seem to fall from you
At their rainbows end
A halcyon day or two
How soon we fool ourselves
How slow we tread
Astral planes collide head on
And on and on we glide
As if forever.

Heady stuff for an impressionable adolescent , as I was then.
I have no doubt that many of us are drawn to the whole Ferry canon by the lyrics , as well as the song writing and musicianship.

From "One kiss".

Been there, done that, felt that:

"Just as he's trying to open the door
He fumbles with the key
Clumsily playing for time without words
Some things you can only feel
One kiss, lost in shade
One tear, ever so slowly falling left to fade"

I like how a line in Take A Chance With Me sort of over laps and is part of the previous line and the next....

people say I'm just a fool, all the world even you

or is it

all the world even you, should learn to love the way I do

Teresa, every time I go to one of your video links it won't open!
I do get onto YouTube but there's writing that says "this video is not available" .... do I need to tweak some setting?
