What is OK short for?

The most popular theory is that OK comes from ‘oll korrect’, a deliberately misspelled writing of ‘all correct’. It was popularized in Boston newspapers around the 1840s when it was fashionable to go around spelling things incorrectly for humorous effect. Legend also has it that New York Democrats later adopted the abbreviation to promote their candidate Martin Van Buren – the initials ‘OK’ were derived from his nickname, Old Kinderhook.


Now you know. :)

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within."

I like how the music is used to get the point across.  It's memorable, for someone like me. :)

another day slips away
and i get this feeling like nothing has changed
but these years keep coming like waves
they wash over me day after day

i just watch them rolling by
standing here beneath the sky
and i can't hold the hands of time
they will move like they will move
but i can hold your hand in mine
and give my time and give my heart
it's all that i can do

another night is flying by
somebody's born, and somebody dies
i want to look deep in your eyes
i want to laugh and i want to cry

and i can't hold the hands of time
they will move like they will move
but i can hold your hand in mine
and give my time and give my heart
it's all that i can do

i'll just watch it rolling by
here with you beneath the sky
and i can't hold the hands of time
they will move like they will move
but i can hold your hand in mine
and give my time and give my heart
it's all that i can do
take my time and take my heart
'cause they belong to you
it's all that i can do
