MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

Much Ado About Nothing is a comedic play by William Shakespeare thought to have been written in the middle of Shakespeare's career and it is considered one of his best comedies.
There are different cinematic versions and we will be watching the latest (2013) directed by Joss Whedon. First, though, a bit of an introduction.

IDIOMS AND PROVERBS


An idiom is an expression common to a particular culture that does not mean what it literally says. For example, "to rain cats and dogs", which means "to rain very heavily", is an idiom. "Break a leg!", which means "good luck!", is another one. 




proverb is a short popular saying that gives advice about how people should behave or that expresses a belief that is generally thought to be true. Here are some examples:
  • Don’t cry over spilled milk. 
  • All is fair in love and war. 
  • A friend in need is a friend indeed.
Like idioms, proverbs often have a meaning that is greater than the meaning of the individual words put together, but in a different way than idioms. The literal meaning of an idiom usually doesn’t make sense, and idioms can be almost impossible to understand unless you have learned or heard them before. 
However, the literal meaning of a proverb such as “Don’t cry over spilt milk” does makes sense on its own, but it’s not until you apply this meaning to a real situation that you understand the real point of the proverb. For example, “Don’t cry over spilled milk” means “Don’t get upset over something that has already been done. It’s too late to worry about it now, just get on with your life”.

Hello, it's me, I was wondering

If after all these years you'd like to meet to go over everything
They say that time's supposed to heal, yeah
But I ain't done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?

I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There's such a difference between us

And a million miles


Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times 
To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home


Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried 
To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore



Hello, how are you?
It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry
I hope that you're well
Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?



It's no secret
That the both of us are running out of time



So hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times 
To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home



Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried 
To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore



Ooh, anymore
Ooh, anymore
Ooh, anymore
Anymore...



Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times 
To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home



Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried 
To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore
