And there are those buildings at night all those wonderful deco apartment buildings and there a twinkling lights, and there are people home, and they represent lives and relationships. There's a brother a mother son a daughter, a husband a wife tucked away in those little cubby holes. And they've all got a story. And the odds are that any number of those twinkling lights, represent at least the two songs that we just heard as potentially having been a wedding song or a falling in love to saw at last unforgettable.
