A life you will remember

From the lyrics of The Nights, a song by Swedish DJ and music producer Avicii (Tim Bergling): One day my father—he told me, “Son, don’t let it slip away.” He took me in his arms, I heard him say “When you get older Your wild heart will live for younger days Think of me if […]

Good guys finish last…
