❝ Future butterfly
Gonna spend the day
Higher than high
You’ll be
Beautiful confusion, ooh
Once I was you
Ah, ah…
Ah, ah…
I saw you caught between
All the people out
Making a scene
In a bright
Ideal tomorrow, ooh
Don’t go too far
Stay who you are
Ah, ah…
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
You only live a day
But it’s brilliant anyway
I saw you out
A perfect place
It’s gonna happen soon
But not today
So go to sleep
Amid the change
I’ll meet you here tomorrow
Independence day
Independence day
Independence day ❞

Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
