My parents have a wonderful marriage, for many years.

Snap your fingers and somebody runs / You don't care how they feel just as long as they come / Got your head in the stars now you've come this far / Just who do you think you are?
I didn't spend much time in America, which probably was a mistake.
To someone else, having a number one in America would be enough to get them touring.
You can't close your eyes to the lies perpetrated by dangerous fools / 'cos they're handing out rules
My tears of love are a waste of time if I turn away.
When love's the culmination of everything you feel, then it's the only thing that's precious, it's the only thing that's real.

There is sadness and confusion in our hearts / And the world prepares to fight / as it tears itself apart, it isn't fair
In the day I can smile though I wanna die / Hold on, hold on / I can keep it together for a little while / and be strong, so strong / But when the sun goes down and I'm all alone / I haven't the strength to fight / That's when my tears give in to the night

Gardening is not something to get on your high horse about or be overwhelmed by.
Either you enjoy it or you don't.

And while we destroy / Our children will grow / Not missing the things they'll never know / A crime against them / Against you and me / A crime against all humanity
