Vienna waits for you
I’ve never really taken to English songs, I don’t know why, but one particular song has neither left my playlist nor my mind in the longest.
Vienna waits for you – Billy Joel. He has written quite a few gems, but the lyrics in this song resonate. Soak in them, if you choose to listen to the song – I’ve shared a link below. “Slow down, you crazy child, you so ambitious for a juvenile, but if you’re so smart, tell me why are you still so afraid?”
The poignancy of the thought, so effortlessly captured. It questions the insecurity, the rush, the lack of time to look back and catch your breath. And whether it is worth the while.
Give it a listen if you want to be transported. https://youtu.be/xGUQlLD5hDU
On a parallel but not unrelated note, this song and “Before Sunrise” remain two compelling reasons to visit Vienna, sooner than later.
