So simple and yet so brilliant

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Here's another email link I recieved this week. The title of this post was taken from the subject line of the email, and is very appropriate.

Apparently, at a meeting of the AARP (American Assc of Retired People)they showed a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20 yr. old.

The contest was titled 'u @ 50'. This video actually won second place.

When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.

So simple and yet so brilliant.

Take a minute and watch it.

I'm adding this Coldplay vid (feat. Jaye-Z) because it showed up on the same Youtube page as the above video and because I luuuurvveee this song/Coldplay!

Here's the lyrics:

Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop
Doesn't mean I would cross

Just because I'm hurting
Doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't get
What I deserved
No better and no worse

I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Ohhh and I'm...
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off

You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come
A bigger one

And you'll be lost
Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Ohhh and I'm...
Just waiting until the firing stopped
Ohhh and I'm...
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off

Ohhh and I...
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Ohhh and I..
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off
