Alfie (2004)

On the same page, a quick thought fromt the same movie:

It seems to me the problems you worry yourself sick about never seem to materialize. It's the ones that catch you unexpectedly on a Wednesday afternoon that knock you sideways.


A rather philosophical movie.

Old Habits Die Hard

So true! That's why I'm doing this instead of working, as I should be doing. Why I remain where I shouldn't reading till morning...

Old Habits Die Hard
Mick Jagger (feat. Dave Stewart)

I thought I shook myself free
You see, I bounce back quicker than most
But i'm half delirious, it's too mysterious
You walk through my walls like a ghost

But I took everyday at a time
I'm proud as a lion in his lair
Now there's no denying it, and no decrying it
You're all tangled up in my head

Old habits die hard
Old soldiers just fade away
Old habits die hard
Harder than November rain

Old habits die hard
Old soldiers just fade away
Old habits die hard
Hard enough to feel the pain

We haven't spoken in months
You see, I've been counting the days
I dream of such inanities, such insanities
I'm lost like a kid in a maze

But I've never taken your calls
You see, I put the block on my phone
I act like an addict, I just got to have it
I never can live it alone

Old habits die hard
Old soldiers just fade away
Old habits die hard
Harder than November rain

Old habits die hard
Old soldiers just fade away
Old habits die hard
Hard enough to feel the pain

I can't give you up
Can't live you alone
It's so hard, so hard
Hard enough to feel the pain

Old habits die hard

Old habits die hard
Harder than November rain
Old habits die hard
Old soldiers just fade away
Old habits die hard
And hard enough to feel the pain
