Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters, one of my all-time favorite songs.  Of course so many of Elton’s songs are my favorite songs.

Old friends, old friends sat on their parkbench like bookendsA newspaper blowin’ through the grassFalls on the round toes of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old menLost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunThe sounds of the city sifting through treesSettles like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today, sharing a park bench quietlyHow terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years, silently sharing the same fears

Old friends, old friends sat on their parkbench like bookends
A newspaper blowin’ through the grass
Falls on the round toes of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sun
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settles like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today, sharing a park bench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years, silently sharing the same fears

I know the last page so well I cant read the first. So I just dont start, its getting worse.

Day#79 Coming Around Again
Carly Simon

hitsof80s:

Coming Around Again - Carly Simon - 1987

One of my all-time favorite songs by one of my all-time favorite artists.

Another reason to be thankful…AC/DC music is now available on iTunes. Fuck yeah!!!!

Also, The Sundays Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic could be the entire soundtrack for this story.

I can never listen to Thank You by Dido because I always expect Eminem to just start rapping out of nowhere. I love the song Stan.
