"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Inside my heart is breaking, :(
My make-up may be flaking,
But my smile still stays on ...

    There may be trouble ahead
    But while there's music and moonlight and love and romance
    Let's face the music and dance ...

    Nice song! I wish all English-speaking songs were as leisurely as this one. :\"> Then I could say that I'm a fluent listener :)

    May be I am wrong, an example of asking permission is no superfluous here:
    "May I have this dance?"
    May I ask another question? What is the difference between: "Can I have this dance?" and "Could I have this dance?"

    Hi Bob,

    In the context of asking for permission they are simply different ways of saying the same thing.

    Can I have this dance? Is slightly less polite.

    Even less polite, but famous from the old sitcom The Liver Birds-

    A: Are you dancing?
    B: Are you asking?
    A: I'm asking.
    B: I'm dancing.

    May be it's easy to say everyone is happy in this world, may be people shows fake smile and fake expressions but we can not hide it from our eyes.

    Maybe it's easy to say everyone is happy in this world, and people may show fake smiles and fake expressions, but we cannot hide the pain from showing in our eyes.
