Here's to life




 Os traigo una canción hermosa. De esas canciones que uno recuerda como algo importante de la vida. Canción balance, no apta para teenagers, ni treintañeros si quiera. Esta es una versión fantástica con Shirley Horn, grabada en 1992. La letra es de Phyllis Molinary y la música (maravillosa, simple, grande) de Artie Butler

 No complaints and no regrets
 I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets
 And I have learned that all you give is all you get
 So give it all you've got
 I had my share, I drank my fill 
And even though I'm satisfied,
 I'm hungry still 
To see what's down another road,
 beyond a hill And do it all again 

 So here's to life And every joy it brings
 Here's to life 
To dreamers and their dreams
 Funny how the time just flies
 How love can go from warm hellos to sad goodbyes
 And leave you with the memories 
you've memorized 
To keep your winters warm 
 But there's no yes in yesterday 
And who knows what tomorrow brings, or takes away 
As long as I'm still in the game, 
I want to play For laughs, for life, for love 
 So here's to life And every joy it brings 
Here's to life To dreamers and their dreams 
May all your storms be weathered
 And all that's good get better 
 Here's to life Here's to love
 And here's to you
