I was always pissed by M. Faithfuls song lyric line “At the age of thirty-seven she realised she'd never ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair.“
Destroyed illusions? That's hard but ok! Get your own car and go ahead!
So I sing “At the age of forty-something I realized I can quite well ride through Berlin or Los Angeles in a rental car with the hot desert wind in my hair.“
