    deceptively gentle and delicate, but really it carries the weight of a tonne of bricks

    "How terribly strange to be seventy" a simply chilling thought.

    Old friends, old friends, Sat on their parkbench like bookends A newspaper blown through the grass Falls on the round toes of the high shoes of the old friends Old friends, winter companions, the old men Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset The sounds of the city sifting through trees Settle like dust on the shoulders of the old friends Can you imagine us years from today, Sharing a parkbench quietly How terribly strange to be seventy Old friends, memory brushes the same years, Silently sharing the same fears

    The intro recalls Erik Satie's "Gymnopedies, No.1".

    Incredibly beautiful, perfection, highly sentimental but that is why it is beautiful. <3

    I love this song. I also love that you can hear in it, so easily, that Sgt. Pepper's was released the year before...
