(Just Like) Starting Over – John Lennon

The day the music died, December 8th, 1980. I was home, for a short winter vacation from high school, and the news was all over radio and tv. I felt like crying, and I probably did a bit. Man cry too, after all, if it’s for a noble cause. And then I remember days on end, all the radio stations playing Starting Over, and we spent Christmas listening to it. It was much, much later that I got to understand the man, and the genius John Lennon was. If you’ve never seen it, watch the movie Imagine.

Here are some pictures I took couple of days ago, in New York City, his last home.

And Remember:
“It’s time to spread your wings and fly,
Don’t let another day go by.”

Lyrics:

Our life together is so precious together,
We have grown – we have grown,
Although our love is still special,
Let’s take a chance and fly away somewhere alone,

It’s been too long since we took the time,
No-one’s to blame,
I know time flies so quickly,
But when I see you darling,
It’s like we both are falling in love again,
It’ll be just like starting over – starting over,

Everyday we used to make it love,
Why can’t we be making love nice and easy,
It’s time to spread our wings and fly,
Don’t let another day go by my love,
It’ll be just like starting over – starting over,

Why don’t we take off alone,
Take a trip somewhere far, far away,
We’ll be together all alone again,
Like we used to in the early days,
Well, well, well darling,

It’s been so long since we took the time,
No-one’s to blame,
I know time flies so quickly,
But when I see you darling,
It’s like we both are falling in love again,
It’ll be just like starting over – starting over,

Our life together is so precious together,
We have grown – we have grown,
Although our love is still special,
Let’s take our chance and fly away somewhere.
