Lyrics
We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain
We jumped, never asking why
We kissed, I fell under your spell
A love no one could deny
Don’t you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can’t live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you
I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you wreck me
I put you high up in the sky
And now, you’re not coming down
It slowly turned, you let me burn
And now, we’re ashes on the ground
Don’t you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can’t live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you
I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was wreck me
I came in like a wrecking ball
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you wreck me
I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should’ve let you in
I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
I guess I should’ve let you in
Don’t you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was wreck me
I came in like a wrecking ball
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me

THE BOXING DAY SALES



The Boxing Day sales are expected to be bigger than ever 

this year, with huge discounts on everything from lingerie to 

washing machines.


Resultado de imagen de boxing dayWhat is Boxing Day?


Firstly I must say, it has nothing to do with the sport of boxing.The simplest answer would be that English and Irish people are a little greedy  in wanting a longer holiday.  It is not enough for them to have only Christmas Day celebrations, and they  have added on this other event called Boxing Day.
Boxing Day in the United Kingdom is the day after Christmas Day and falls on December 26.It´s a bank holiday. Traditionally, it was a day when employers distributed money, food, cloth (material) or other valuable goods to their employees. In modern times, it is an important day for sporting events and the start of the post-Christmas sales.

For many people Boxing Day is a time to recover from the excesses of Christmas Day and an opportunity to spend time with family, friends, and neighbors. 
Some people choose to go for a walk in the countryside, while others flock to the post-Christmas sales that often begin on Boxing Day. Some people even spend part of the night and early morning queuing to get into the stores when the best bargains are still available.

Why is the Day Called Boxing Day?

Arguments abound on the origins of the name Boxing Day.
All the answers below are valid,  so maybe it is one, or even all of them.

  1. A ‘Christmas Box’ in Britain is a name for a Christmas present.
  2. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a  ‘Christmas Box’ from the master. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give ‘Christmas Boxes’ to their families.
  3. A box to collect money for the poor traditionally and placed in Churches on Christmas day and opened the next day - Boxing Day.
  4. Great sailing ships when setting sail would have a sealed box containing money on board for good luck. Were the voyage a success, the box was given to a priest, opened at Christmas and the contents given to the poor.
