Al Stewart – Time Passages

It was late in December, the sky turned to snow
All round the day was going down slow
Night like a river beginning to flow
I felt the beat of my mind go
Drifting into time passages
Years go falling in the fading light
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Well I’m not the kind to live in the past
The years run too short and the days too fast
The things you lean on are the things that don’t last
Well it’s just now and then my line gets cast into these
Time passages
There’s something back here that you left behind
Oh time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting to turn
Don’t know why you should feel
That there’s something to learn
It’s just a game that you play

Well the picture is changing
Now you’re part of a crowd
They’re laughing at something
And the music’s loud
A girl comes towards you
You once used to know
You reach out your hand
But you’re all alone, in these
Time passages
I know you’re in there, you’re just out of sight
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight


Peace, black coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘

The Corrs – Toss the Feathers

Dear friends and readers,

This time I share this beautiful instrumental with you. The first time I saw and heard someone playing the Bhódran – I fell in love with this instrument. One day in the near future, a Bhódran will hopefully come my way. As udemy.com offers online trainings – I am rather confident that it is going to work out.  😉

Rag ‘n’ Bone Man – Bitter End

You swear to God but I’m a non-believer
You’re losing faith while I’ve been holding on
Trying to find the root of all this come between us
Trying to save what’s left before everything is gone

Sweet love, my oldest friend
Have we come to the bitter end?
No made up, no pretend
How we’ve come to the bitter end
The bitter end
The bitter end

Too many years of battle scars and now
We’re broken
And all the words you said
Been hanging over my head for time
And all of the lines we’ve crossed
The finally bars that’s open
As a thousand tiny pain because the light

Sweet love, my oldest friend
Have we come to the bitter end
No made up, no pretend
How we’ve come to the bitter end
The bitter end
The bitter end
How we’ve come to the bitter end
Oh, the bitter end

The higher we rise
The further we fall
When we crash down
Through all of these years
I can’t accept it’s over now
I won’t let go

Sweet love, my oldest friend
Have we come to the bitter end
No made up, no pretend
How we’ve come to the bitter end


A few hours ago I learned that an American colleague of mine had passed away. I am still shocked – 37 is not an age to go. RIP Shavon – this one’s for you.

Oasis – Wonderwall

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna give it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now
Back beat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
And I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead the way are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
But I don’t know how

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
But they’ll never bring it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you got to do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don’t know how

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me?
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You’re my wonderwall
You’re my wonderwall
You’re my wonderwall
You’re my wonderwall

Blue Rodeo – After The Rain

If I had my way
I would never go back
With my back to the wall
I just let myself fall
Watch the daytime’s turn black
But now and again I find
You cross my mind

If I was a train
I would never slow down
With my head in the sky
And the world going by
Every nowhere town
As I write one more letter to you
I know I can’t change the things that I do

One day
When you discover
Just why I ran
Ran away from you lover
I know I’m to blame
I feel so ashamed
Call out your name
After the rain

What do you want me to do
I’ve thrown away everything for you
Well I’ve wasted my dreams
Each day it seems
I’m losing my way back to you

It’s time for a change
What else can I do
The clock ticking time
I better make up my mind
Is it me or is it you
Yeah tonight as I’m losing control
I will drink to the queen of my soul

One day
When you discover
Just why I ran
Ran away from you lover
I know I’m to blame
I feel so ashamed
Call out your name
After the rain


Peace, black coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘
