Today, at lunch time, I unexpectedly came across U2's Beautiful day.
Besides reminding me some of you guys (that I know looooooove U2), the song brought me back a feeling I almost didn't recognize anymore.
This song took me back to this day, 6 years ago... boarding on a plane. One of the last times I believed in Life and what it has to give (back) to you.
So... I sang, I danced, I jumped up and down. While reuniting Past and Present in me.
The sad thing is - although I sometimes try to kid myself - I really can't believe in stuff that vibrant way anymore.The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room, no space to rent in this town
You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care,
The traffic is stuck and you're not moving anywhere.
You thought you'd found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It's a beautiful day, the sky falls
Abd you feel like it's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road but you've got no destination
You're in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over and it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Beautiful day
Don't let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
You don't need it now, you don't need it now

Beautiful day

Perfect! And the video is something worthy too (I'm just not posting it or this will become a Youtube hang out... LOOOL)

Didn't they record the video for this song by Amsterdam's Schiphol airport with the planes coming in and taking off over them? I could be wrong.... It's been a beautiful day in London today - spring is definitely here!!

Ianita: Foi, sem dúvida! foram 7 dias da mais pura alegria! E NUNCA irão fugir... são meus, estão gravados em mim :)

Anna: That I don't know... the place of recording... I'll go check!
Now... I just envy you... 6 years ago... I was in London... my "heart hometown"... in this instant walking aroun Oxford Street :)
You just made me smile with that phrase and yes! 6 years ago the weather was just like that! Great!

Subditi: Lá está... que outra cançáo e outra pessoa podia ter eu na memoria no dia em q festejo 6 anos da mais bela viagem da minha vida? ;)
