Forever Young

2008 is coming to an end in just a few hours so I thought I should pay my respects to this part of my life that had become dormant.

It was not as though nothing was going on to write about. It was a case of too much going on and me being overwhelmed by a multitude of situations and emotions. It's still me - enriched by experiences, heart broken yet hopeful, loved yet wanting, enthusiastic yet cautious. My hair is still curly (thank God) and I still love music and coffee ....and travel. There is one thing that has changed. My backdrop is no longer the desert of Arizona or the skyscrapers of New York City. It's wherever life takes me...and at present that means the blinding speed, fashion and lights of Tokyo.

I'm leaving you with this song by Youth Group - "Forever Young"...and a promise to keep writing :)

Happy New Year
नववर्ष की शुभ कामनाएं

"Forever Young"

Let's dance in style let's dance for a while,
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies,
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst,
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die on let us live forever,
Don't have the power but we never say never,
Sitting in the sandpit life is a short trip,
Music's for the sad man

Can you imagine when this race is run,
Turning up our faces into the sun,
Praising our leaders getting in tune,
Music's played by the mad man

Forever young, I want to be forever young,
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever forever,
Forever young, I want to be forever young,
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, forever

Some are like water Some are like the heat,
Some are melodies Some are the beat,
Sooner or later they'll all be gone,
Why don't they stay on?
It's hard to get without a cause,
I don't want to perish like a fading voice,
Youth is like diamonds in the sun,
And diamonds are forever,
So many adventures couldn't happened today,
So many songs that we forgot to play,
So many dreams swimming out in the blue,
Let them come true
Forever young I want to be forever young,
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, forever

Amrita !!!

You are in Japan now. Wow !

I love this song but as an 80's child, I have to recommend the original alphaville version. :)

Take care

Amrita...Happy new year!..

It does hit you...the end of the year when you suddenly take stock..and feel lost when that much hasn't changed...This year...I found that comforting!!!
