Carly Simon sings about the Good Old Days

A  song for a summer's break

Summers are for family and fun and reflection.  It is a time to rethink the values we have adopted and to set our goals even higher.  This song strangely resonates in that light where time becomes universal and old pasts are reborn into a vivid future.

The lyrics of Carly Simon's  song,  Anticipation

We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway
And I wonder if I'm really with you now
Or just chasing after some finer day

Anticipation, anticipation
Is making me late
It's keeping me waiting
And I tell you how easy it feels to be with you
And how right your arms feel around me
But I, I rehearsed those words just late last night
When I was thinking about how right tonight might be

{Refrain}

And tomorrow we might not be together
I'm no prophet, and I don't know nature's ways
So I'll try to see into your eyes right now
And stay right here, 'cause these are the good old days
These are the good old days
And stay right here, 'cause these are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days.
