I like this song because it has a bluesy rhythm. Its a beautiful country song with good lyrics




 Verse 1

 Gavin
They all say it
All the ones that made it
Once you find the one you claim it
But you're gonna have to fight

Colbie
When I think back
The things that threw us off track
We handled like a heart attack
Cause we didn't see the light

Both
Oh, yeah, now

Chorus:
Both
We both, know our
Own limitations, that's why we're strong
Now that we spent some time apart
We're leading each other, out of the dark
Cause we both know

Verse 2
Gavin
From this moment
Forget what we were scared of
Say we're never giving up
You say you'll always

Both
Try… to… be…. my

Both
Helping hand
Try to be the one who understands
When things don't go as you've planned
We're still worth it all

Oh, yeah, now...

Chorus:
Both
We both, know our
Own limitations, that's why we're strong
Now that we've spent some time apart
We're leading each other, out of the dark
Cause we both know

Bridge:
Both
What we're scared of (what we're scared of)
And what dreams are made of (what dreams are made of)
They can take us further than what anybody can see, yeah

Chorus:
Both
We both, know our
Own limitations, and that's why we're strong
Now that we've spent some time apart
We're leading each other, out of the dark

We both (we both), know our (know our)
Own limitations, and that's why we're strong
Now that we've spent some time apart
We're leading each other, out of the dark
Cause we both know

Both
We both know.

A small, impoverished family invades the lives of members of another well-to-do family, but soon comes to a shocking revelation that puts their own work of deception to shame

Rating: 5/5
Parasite is the first Korean movie to ever win the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. It has also been nominated for an Academy Award, won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film (2020) and won the SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture (2020).

One of the things I find so great about this movie is the number and sheer quality of plot twists that were part of it. So important were these plot twists, that the director, Bong Joon-Ho, intentionally excluded a great chunk of the filming from the trailer and issued a…

WHY I SPENT THREE MONTHS READING ONE BOOK

When I got this book in February, I had no idea it would take me this long to finish. I hadn’t even heard about the book before, as it was published over 10 years ago, when I would have been to young to appreciate it. However, I was book shopping, and two things attracted me to it. First- that it was written by one of my favourite Nigerian authors, Helon Habila; and secondly, that it won the Caine Prize, which is a pretty big deal if you ask me.

Mamo and LaMamo, twins born in Northern Nigeria are raised mostly by their aunt, and partly by their father. Each followed a very different path from the other, having contrasting personalities.

Each twin finds himself held down by something that proved not to be what it seemed. LaMamo wants to fight, to be a patriot, yet wha…
