Flashback one: Two of my childhood icons, singing together, again. This time, without the phony ponies or pigtails or whatnot. Two of my childhood icons, looking better than ever (and singing better, too – only without the choreographed movements and beats.)
Flashback two: Knowing a person so well that you know it is time to let that person go because s/he needs the space apart. Because, as Melanie puts it (or sings it), “nothing is so good it lasts eternally/ perfect situations must go wrong”.
But, well, it was good while it lasted. Understanding took time.
It was oh so good while you were mine.
