One day I’ll fly away

One day I’ll fly away

 

 [John  Lewis]

One Day I’ll Fly Away

I follow the night
Can’t stand the light

One day I’ll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
What more can your love do for me
When will love be through with me
Why live life from dream to dream
And dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I’ll fly away!
Leave all this to yesterday!
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day when dreaming ends

The music is One Day I’ll Fly Away performed by Vaults, the original song was by Randy Crawford.  Find the track HERE

Some Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas – this is probably the most frequently used expression. You can use it verbally or write it on a Christmas card. ‘Merry’ means happy or joyful , so the term ‘Merry Christmas’ is to wish people a happy and joyful Christmas.

Season’s Greetings – this is a greeting more commonly used on winter season greeting cards rather than as a spoken phrase.  You usually see it on cards depicting white, snowy Christmas scenes.

Happy Holidays – this phrase is sometimes used on greeting cards and is used to wish someone well over the Christmas period.

Happy New Year – this is a greeting that people use on 1st January, on New Year’s Day, but many people include this phrase on a Christmas card. For example, ‘Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’.

TRIO

Whether it’s birds, opera singers, aces, or golfers, you can use the word trio to refer to anything made up of three.

You can probably tell by tri that trio involves three of something. It’s often used to describe a musical arrangement featuring three vocal parts or three different instruments, or a musical group made up of three players, such as a jazz trio consisting of a piano player, a bass player, and a drummer. For those not musically inclined, the word can be used more broadly to refer to three of anything, such as a trio of friends.
