Save the last dance for me

Well you can dance
Every dance with the woman
Who gives you the eye
Let her hold you tight
And you can smile
Every smile for the woman
Who held your hand
'Neath the pale moonlight
But don't forget who's taking you  Home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darling, save the last dance for me

Oh I know
That the music's fine
Like sparkling wine
Go and have your fun
Laugh and sing
But while we're apart
Don't give your heart
To anyone
And don't forget who's taking you Home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darling, save the last dance for me

Baby, don't you know I love you so
Can't you feel it when we touch
I will never, never let you go
I love you, oh so much

You can dance
Go and carry on
Till the night is gone
And it's time to go
If she asks
If you're all alone
Can she walk you home
You must tell her no
Cause don't forget who's taking you Home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
Save the last dance for me

So don't forget who's taking you home
Or in who's arms you're gonna be
So darling save the last dance for me
Oh baby, won't you save the last dance for me
Ooh, you make a promise
That you'll save the last dance for me
Save the last dance
The very last dance
For me

("Save the last dance for me" adaptation)

Don't let them think

That we've broken down;
That we've cracked up.
We merely dropped leaves,
For a further spring.

Another wrong step

As if nothing had changed overnight, the warrior takes another wrong step and dives once again into the abyss. Ghosts provoke, loneliness torments him. Now that he is more aware of his acts, he did not think this would happen.

But it did. Shrouded by darkness, he talks to his master.
- “Master, I fell again into the abyss “, he says.” The waters are deep and dark”.
- “Remember something “, responds the master. "It is not the diving that causes the drowning, but the staying underwater."

The warrior uses his remaining strength to get out of the situation he is in.

(Paulo Coleho - The Manual of the Warrior of Light)

If pain must come

May it come quickly. Because i have a life to live, and i need to live it in the best possible.
If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then i will either wait for him or forget him.
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful.
But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering

– Paulo Coelho

Nor from inside, or from outside

When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.

(African proverb)

No strings attached

According to a poet: 'The warrior of light chooses his enemies.' He knows what he is capable of; he does not have to go about the world boasting of his qualities and virtues. Nevertheless, there is always someone who wants to prove himself better than he is.

For the warrior, there is no 'better' or 'worse': everyone has the necessary gifts for his particular path. But certain people insist. They provoke and offend and do everything they can to irritate him. At that point, his heart says: 'Do not respond to these insults, they will not increase your abilities. You will tire yourself needlessly.'

A warrior of light does not waste his time listening to provocations; he has a destiny to fulfil.
(Paulo Coleho - 'The warrior of Light manual')

Love is from the infinite,
and will remain until eternity.

- Rumi

If you come

At the end of my life, with just one breath left,
if you come, I’ll sit up and sing.

- Rumi

Changing from inside up

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

- Rumi


I am the slave of that perfect Moon!
Don't talk to me of suffering, I don't want to hear.
Talk about light, joy and sweetness
and if you can't, keep silent!

- Rumi

Keep knocking

And the joy inside will eventually open a window.

- Rumi

You suppose

You suppose you are the trouble,
But you are the cure.
You suppose that you are the lock on the door,
But you are the key that opens it.
It's too bad that you want to be someone else.
You don't see your own face, your own beauty
Yet, no face is more beautiful than yours.

- Rumi

Don't grieve

Anything you lose comes round in another form.

- Rumi

Dancing with Myself

On the floor of Tokyo
Or down in London town to go, go
With the record selection
With the mirror reflection
I'm dancing with myself

When there's no-one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait so long
For my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself

If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

(Dancing with myself - Nouvelle Vague song)

I follow rivers

Oh I beg you, can I follow?
Oh I ask you, why not always?
Be the ocean where I unravel
Be my only, be the water were I'm wading
You're my river running high,
run deep run wild

I, I follow, I follow you
deep sea baby, I follow you
I, I follow, I follow you, don't come honey

He the message, I'm the runner
He the rebel, I'm the daughter waiting for you
You're my river running high,
run deep run wild

You're my river running high,
run deep run wild
I, I follow, I follow you
Deep sea baby, I follow you
I, I follow, I follow you,
Don't come honey, I follow you

(Lykke Li - I follow rivers)

You could

"You could, for a change, let the flowers look at you."
