When I was in Salzburg, I had the pleasure of exploring the rolling hills of Mondsee via Panorama’s Tour of the Sound of Music!

It feels like one of those nights “22 is basically the only age you can use as leverage.

Chilling to the bones, icy cold. This song still makes me tear at the climax. Personal favourite since 2008. 冷たいその手 君のせいじゃない 幼き日々ほった 傷抱え 誰かを愛すること 恐れてるの 言葉の裏側 背を向けて 抱きしめた心が 氷のように そっと溶け出す 誰もが誰かに愛される為に この世に命を煌(きらめ)かせるのさ それがもしも僕なら もう一度君の心を 永遠(とわ)の優しさで 暖めるよ… 運命の悪戯(心を痛めても) その涙の先には ひとすじの光が(闇の中舞い降りて) 僕らは気付くさ 苦しいほどに強く 感じあえる 人の温もり 誰もが持ってる哀しみや孤独 癒してもらえる場所探している SO… 君にはその場所が ここにあるさ 恐れないで もう迷わないで 僕が守る 切ないほど(my heart )美しい 愛だから(Don’t beContinue reading “love in the ice”
