Shallow – “A Star is Born”

My new favourite song...     Oh, these lyrics... listen/read and weep. Tell me somethin', girl Are you happy in this modern world? Or do you need more? Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for?

I know my … Continue reading Would you still love me the same?

Positivity is change
