Catch me if you can
I don’t want to be a dead man
Now you see me, now you don’t
Things I can’t tell you and I won’t
I can make myself disappear
I know, that’s a bit queer
When I don’t want to be there
As long as I have something to wear
When I’m in an awkward situation
I twirled around and I spun
Like when I’m a third wheel
I don’t want him for me to steal
Or when I’ve dug a deep hole
I could fit myself in a cubbyhole
When I’ve done something I shouldn’t
And I could go as far away as a distant
Or I’ve said something that hurt
Like you smell like a Roquefort
Escape to a place where no one can see me
I promise to be very quiet in a back alley
Escape to a world where I feel needed
I’m one of them and in a crowd I blended
Escape to a new planet – hey, that’s cool
As long as there’s a school and a whirlpool

Spare us your mercy, we are in love
Forget the cost of travelling, I’m here
With you, everything is worth it
Just to see your face and with you
The jar might be empty, but we’ll manage
Like flighty birds, we are free to groove
Tough life being separated
One day we will be together
The gift of love forever and ever
We are bound together, that is a sign
Sign that we have to be patient
Some sacrifices are needed
We will make the most of this day
With you the whole world is brilliant*

Hello everyone from a cloudy Bavarian morning.
Oh well, we can’t have lovely weather everyday. Last week was brilliant, though. We were able to cycle around. Him Indoors is on holiday for a month, so he was out gardening most of the time. Sharing with you some of our new flowers.
Last night, we had dinner at the Greek’s – the place was full, people were outside and the food was really delicious!
By the way, I’ll have a break from blogging. We’re going on holiday for two weeks – in two countries – yay! I’ll tell you all about it when I get back. For now, have a lovely week everyone!
So, what made you smile this week?
