“If we knew each other's secrets, what comforts we should find.

- John Churton Collins
(26 Mar 1848 - 25 Sept 1908)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Soooo, how old do you have to be when you consider a song from 1980 to be a "new" one?

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sodthxK1z44 - Entre Nous - Rush, 1980


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entre_Nous_%28song%29:  

Entre Nous ("Between Us" in French) is the fourth track on the 1980s album Permanent Waves by progressive rock band Rush. It was also released as a single.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 02/24/15:

“A pivotal spiritual attribute is that of self-mastery—the strength to place reason over appetite. Self-mastery builds a strong conscience. And your conscience determines your moral responses in difficult, tempting, and trying situations.”

- Russell M. Nelson
(b. 09 Sept 1924)

   Thank you, Susan!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/25/17:

Little Mikey and his family were having Sunday dinner at his grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When Little Mikey received his plate, he started eating right away.

"Mikey! Please wait until we say our prayer," said his mother.

"I don't need to," the boy replied.

"Of course, you do," his mother insisted through gritted teeth. "We always say a prayer before eating at our house."

"That's at our house," Mikey explained. "But this is Grandma's house, and she knows how to cook."

Entre Nous

Lyrics by Neil Peart (b. 12 Sept 1952)

Music composed by Alex Lifeson (b. 27 Aug 1953) and Geddy Lee (b. 29 July 1953)

Recorded by Rush, 1980
 

 We are secrets to each other
Each one's life a novel
No-one else has read
Even joined in bonds of love
We're linked to one another
By such slender threads
We are planets to each other
Drifting in our orbits
To a brief eclipse
Each of us a world apart
Alone and yet together
Like two passing ships

Just between us
I think it's time for us to recognize
the differences we sometimes feared to show
Just between us
I think it's time for us to realize
The spaces in between
Leave room
For you and I to grow

We are strangers to each other
Full of sliding panels
An illusion show
Acting well-rehearsed routines
Or playing from the heart?
It's hard for one to know

Just between us
I think it's time for us to recognize
the differences we sometimes feared to show
Just between us
I think it's time for us to realize
The spaces in between
Leave room
For you and I to grow

We are islands to each other
Building hopeful bridges
On the troubled seas
Some are burned and swept away
Some we would not choose
But we're not always free

Just between us
I think it's time for us to recognize
the differences we sometimes feared to show
Just between us
I think it's time for us to realize
The spaces in between
Leave room
For you and I to grow
