I understand that between me and my g-ma there is a generation gap. She thinks my music is noise, and she thinks the lyrics are unintelligible and senseless. But tonight we were going to dinner, listening to her radio station that plays "the music of [her] life", and there was a song with the lyric "in the shadow of your smile". What in. the. hell. does that mean? In the shadow of your smile? Smiles make shadows? I'm confused. It makes no sense! And this comes from the era where songs make sense, apparently. And I don't care if Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, AND (coming soon, I'm sure) Josh Groban have sung it. IT MAKES NO SENSE!!! We're even, g-ma! EVEN!
