Freedom (Cover by Joyce Agacer)

Freedom (Cover by Joyce Agacer)

My friend would knock on my apartment door and ask if I got time to jam. What a silly question. It felt good to … Continue reading

“Hey, I have to go back to class now—” “Ne me quitte pas…” “Huh?” And he started singing, something he almost never did. Surprised he didn’t stop after a line, I closed my eyes, and listened to the most beautiful song… Ne me quitte pas Il faut oublier Tout peut s’oublier Qui s’enfuit déja Oublier … Continue reading
