Forever young – Lyrics
Let’s dance in style, let’s dance for a while
Heaven can wait, we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we’re getting in tune
The music’s played by the, the mad men

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever? Forever young

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later, they all will be gone
Why don’t they stay young?

It’s so hard to get old without a cause
I don’t want to perish like a fading horse
Youth’s like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?

A perfect miracle – Lyrics

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
I’d part the clouds and have the sun proudly shining on you
I’d take the stars as well and line them up to spell “Darling, I love you”
And little by little watch it all come true

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
I’d catch the wind and have it blow all my kisses to you
I’ll take the birds and teach them all the words of every love song I know
And I’d have them fly around and sing them all to you

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
I won’t get to see you today
My mind is a mess and I’m needing you less
Give me a call in a little while

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
‘Cause every time I close my eyes, I’m just dreaming of you
There ain’t a man around could knock me off my cloud ’cause “Darling, I love you”
And little by little watch it all come true

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
I won’t get to see you this week
Lately I’ve found I don’t need you around
I don’t think it’s working out anyway
Anyway, and…

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
‘Cause you’re the only girl I ever met who’s honest and true
I’d like to settle down with you and mess around a house on the hill
And I’m sitting here hoping it’ll all come true
(Sitting here hoping it’ll all come true)

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
(I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle)
I won’t get to see you this spring
(I’d part the clouds and have the sun proudly shining on you)
My phone has been broke and I thought that we spoke
(I’d take the stars as well and line them up to spell “Darling, I love you”)
Don’t think it’s working out anyway
(And little by little watch it all come true)
Anyway, and…

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
(I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle)
I won’t get to see you this year
(I’d catch the wind and have it blow all my kisses to you)
I hate to confess but I’ve changed my address
(I’ll take the birds and teach them all the words of every love song I know)
I haven’t been home in a little while
(And I’d have them fly around and sing them all to you)
A little while, and…

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
(I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle)
I won’t get to see you again
(I’d like to tell the whole world I’m crazy ’bout you)
I met someone else, you should do it yourself
(I like you every second, every minute, every hour of the day)
So darling, please don’t call
(But now I’m sitting here going “When you gonna come home?”)
Please don’t call

Cleaning 9.000 tons of trash

Cleaning 9.000 tons of trash

 

Over three years ago, Versova beach in Mumbai was little more than a dumping ground for garbage and waste. After witnessing the devastating impact the refuse was having on the ocean, Afroz Shah decided to take matters into his own hands. What started off as a single man’s mission to clean up his favorite childhood beach turned into the world’s largest beach cleanup initiative. As of today, Shah and hundreds of volunteers have cleaned up over nine million kilograms of plastic and waste, with hopes to expand their initiative to other beaches in the future.
