Do you listen to the words in songs?

I think one should. Songs, really, are just poetry set to music and I want to list the words of “Search for a hero” by a group calling themselves “M People” for further discussion.

Sometimes the river flows but nothing breathes.
A train arrives but never leaves.
It’s a shame.
Oh life like love that walks out of the door.
Of being rich or being poor.
Such a shame.
But it’s then, then that faith arrives.
To make you feel at least alive.
And that’s why you should keep on aiming high.
Just seek yourself and you will shine

You’ve got to search for the hero inside yourself.
Search for the secrets you hide.
Search for the hero inside yourself.
Until you find the key to your life.

In this life long and hard though it may seem
Live it as you’d live a dream.
Aim so high.

Just keep the flame of truth burning bright.
The missing treasure you must find.
Because you and only you alone.
Can build a bridge across the stream.

Weave your spell in life’s rich tapestry.
Your passport to a feel supreme.


In these troubled times, the words of this song should be etched into your memory and mind. Hands up all of you who remember the little saying: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”.

I have printed the important lines above in red.

We Brits may have to change our mindsets. Executives may have to turn their hands to working behind a shop counter, or driving a bus. Or may even have to usurp the odd Pole and dig a ditch now and again. At the moment the government is busy printing money to throw at the banks. The more money they print, the more the pound in our pocket will be devalued. If you look at the currency of other countries and see the pound is holding its own, don’t be fooled. They are all printing money as if it were going out of fashion.

And no, it won’t all equal out. For example, a lot of our goods come from Asian countries, including China. They all bought our gold when governments sold it. Their currency is not being devalued to the extent ours is so the time for lower priced goods is disappearing fast.

I am not a doom-monger, I just desperately want my readers and my friends, or both if that is the case, to look to the future and save themselves by taking stock now and putting plans to beat any problems in place now. If I am proved wrong, the worse that can happen to them is that they will be much better off!
