Returning once again to London's Southbank, in happier times.
"Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love"
Leonard Cohen, Various Positions, 1984
To lift the spirits, it's Spring, there is love on the beach ....
"Forever in my dreams my heart will be
Hanging on to this sweet memory
A day of strange desire
And a night that burned like fire
Take me back
To the place
That I know...
On the beach"
Chris Rea, On The Beach, 1986
And finally today, finally, at the end of day ....
"And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll."
Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin, 1971
