There is a Crack in Everything

Anthem

The birds they sang
At the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don’t dwell on what
Has passed away
Or what is yet to be
Yeah the wars they will
Be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
Bought and sold
And bought again
The dove is never free

Ring the bells (ring the bells) that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
We asked for signs
The signs were sent
The birth betrayed
The marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
Of every government
Signs for all to see
I can’t run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud
But they’ve summoned, they’ve summoned up
A thundercloud
And they’re going to hear from me
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
You can add up the parts
You won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march
There is no drum
Every heart, every heart to love will come
But like a refugee
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
Ring the bells that still can ring (ring the bells that still can ring)
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in

Dream Dream Dream

// “Something will occur if it belongs in your life, if not, do not worry…fame and fortune are fleeting.” – The international artists, Metro Vocal Group​, celebrate the 41st anniversary of the release of Sam Hui’s “Drifter’s Song”, released on Dec 1, 1976! The charming melody immediately captured the members of MVG, and became a must share with their audiences around the world. Filmed in our home of Hong Kong, we celebrate this wonderful song written by the “Godfather of Cantopop”, Sam Hui. //

*****************************************************
Thanks to Agnes W
for introducing me to the Metro Vocal Group
******************************************************
I enjoy the group,
Not so much the lyrics.

Yes, life is made up of fleeting moments,
Yes, craving for things brings us nowhere.
But I still believe in endless dreaming.
For I have seen dreams come true.

When I first arrived in San Francisco in 1999
planning to make a brand new start
I knew nobody
And when I left after a few months
I found a few friends who remain friends till today
