When times go rough
Wont you lay me down in tall grass
And let me do my stuff Second Hand News – Fleerwood Mac – Rumours
The Rumours album is arguably Fleetwood Mac’s best album, written when they were on the verge of splitting up…Yet, for me, the album has happy songs. Lke the one above, I love the boppy music. And love the lyrics.
I dont want to know the reasons why
Love keeps right on walking down the line
I dont want to stand between you and love
Honey, I just want you to feel fine I Don’tWant To Know – Ibid.
If you wake up and dont want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
You’ll see things in a different way.
Dont stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Dont stop, itll soon be here,
Itll be, better than before,
Yesterdays gone, yesterdays gone Don’t Stop
Theme songs? Yeah..I was a young thing. Full of enthusiam for life.
Everything turned around
Shacking up is all you wanna do
If I could
Baby I’d give you my world
Everythings waiting for you
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way Go Your Own Way
Loved the lines packing up..shacking up…everything’s waiting for you..
I still feel that everything’s there, waiting. Fun. Laughter. New things to see. New places to go. New people to meet. New things to try.
Everything and everyone is is won by the sweetness of our words and works
You can do nothing with children unless you win their confidence and love by bringing them into touch with oneself, by breaking through all the hindrances that keep them at a distance. We must accommodate ourselves to their tastes, we must make ourselves like them. St John Bosco
Okay, I admit it is a far stretch of the imagination from Fleetwod Mac and their less-than-holy lyrics to St John Bosco, for whom purity was important.
Yet, I see a connection. In my past. The connection is happiness. And enthusiasm.
I associate both these attributes with my experiences of the songs above and with my experiences with the writings of St John Bosco.
