We just have one life!
A friend of mine who died in June used to say:
“Don’t live standing up on the break pedal!”

Sorry to hear about your friend. He/She must have been an interesting person.

Yes, it’s a very romantic song! Thanks for to share it! But I’ll have to listen and listen and… before to be able to do the quiz! I know it’s a good exercise… Particularly for me! :smile:

I think I should have written “Thanks for sharing it!
Before being able to do…”

This song is really romantic!
It makes people realise that we only have one life and that if we have doubt, we should still go for it because, what could be worst than wasting time, waiting for something that will maybe never happens.
Thanks for making me learn the lyrics and train my listening!

I should have written:
could be worse than
that may never happen
and practice my listening

Would love to hear your thoughts...x
