DUA LIPA – Don’t Start Now

 

Lyric

Did a full one eighty
Crazy, thinking about the way I was
Did the heartbreak change me?
Maybe, but look at where I ended up

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all
So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up
Don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away
You know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Aren’t you the guy who tried to
Hurt me with the word goodbye
Though it took some time to, survive you
I’m better on the other-side

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all
So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up
Don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away
You know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Don’t come out
Don’t show now
Don’t start now
Don’t come out
I’m not where you left me at all

So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up (Don’t show up)
Don’t come out (Don’t come out)
Don’t start caring about me now (About me now)
Walk away (Walk away)
You know how (You know how)
Don’t start caring about me now

(Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t show now, walk away, walk away)
So (Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t start now, walk away, walk away)

COLDPLAY – ORPHANS

 

LYRIC

Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Rosaleem of the damascene
Yes, she had eyes like the moon
Would have been on the silver screen
But for the missile monsoon
She went, “Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
Indigo go up to heaven today
“Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
She say
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again
Baba would go where the flowers grow
Almond and peach trees in bloom
And he would know just when and what to sow
So golden and opportune
And he went “Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
Tulips the color of honey today
It’s true true, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
He say
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again (yeah)
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
Cherubim, Seraphim soon
Come sailing us home by the light of the moon
Oh I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and feel home again
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
I guess we’ll be raised on our own then
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
I want to be with you ’til the world ends
I want to be with you ’til the whole world ends
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom

2019 was the hottest year in the past 200 years.

2019 was the hottest year in the past 200 years. It is no coincidence that Magazine Time voted Greta Thunberg as the person of the year. So among the intentions for the new year there is certainly that of spreading green initiatives. Something is being done but very slowly. In Italy, the government has introduced incentives for the purchase of electric cars. I have lived in Italy for many year and when I was a child I witnessed dozens of snows a year. This year I still don’t see a snowflake. It is hoped that it was only a bad year, although the evidence of climate change, albeit minimal, is certain.

Among the Italian political initiatives there is also that of the recognition of electric kick scooter as vehicles equivalent to bicycles. Electric kick scooters are in fact increasingly used by an increasing number of people.

The Pacience of Pope Francis: slaps a faithful!

During the year-end mass (31 December 2019), Pope Francis’ patience was put to the test. While Bergoglio was walking through the crowd, an oriental lady tugged on the Pope’s hand, more than generally happens when a faithful wants to touch and greet the Pope.

The Pope reacted abruptly, as has never been seen, by slapping the hands of the faithful. However the day after Bergoglio apologized for losing patience in an episode that happened the previous day, not specifying in detail what happened.

An episode that certainly does not overshadow the image of the pope, on the contrary, it even more emphasizes the eccentric character of the pontiff, who has sparked millions of comments on the network and on social media.

The New year in the world

2020

The New Year is celebrated all over the world, or rather all over the world that has the Gregorian calendar, that is mainly the Christian one. For example, in some eastern countries such as China, New Year is celebrated on 25th January. The Jews instead celebrate the New Year generally in September.
The Islamic New Year is celebrated on the first day of the month of Muharram and can correspond to any period of the Gregorian year, because the lunar year used in the Islamic calendar is approximately 11 days shorter than the calendar year of the Gregorian calendar, so that an Islamic date “moves” back, compared to the Gregorian calendar, by about a month every three years.

However, the New Year on the Gregorian calendar is celebrated with fireworks all over the world, although fireworks are a delicate theme every year, because there are always accidents. Due to the time zone, the New Year begins earlier in some countries. The first to celebrate will be the inhabitants of Kiritimati instead the last will be those of the American Samoe Islands.

Using cell phones since the 2000s, I can compare the difference with the present day. At one time during midnight the lines were clogged and it was difficult even to send a simple text message. Today, however, the telephone lines hold up well because everyone constantly uses the internet.

Today is a public holiday, and most countries celebrate the motherhood of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Despite this, one of the things that surprised me is that England is one of the few countries where the football matches takes place in New Year. Infact, The Brighton-Chelsea match was played today.
