She’s originally from Wellington, New Zealand and she now lives in Australia.
The song is called Without You and I think it’s a beautiful song.
It’s a love song and the chorus goes: I wouldn’t be the same without you.
The song starts like this: The sky opens up over me and you And you don't seem to mind that we're soaked through
The sky opens up means that it starts raining heavily. And soaked means very wet.
Then the song goes: You kiss me in the rain, I forget what I'm moaning about And I know I wouldn't be the same without you
Moan has a few different meanings.
One meaning is:to make a long deep sound, usually expressing unhappiness, suffering or sexual pleasure.
But that’s not what she means. She means moan as in: to complain about sth in a way that other people find annoying.
So the situation is … she is with her lover and she’s moaning or complaining about something and then it starts raining heavily and then he kisses her and then she forgets what she was talking about and she thinks about how much she loves her partner.
A 22-year-old man stopped at a petrol station to buy some cigarettes. Later he was checking his account online and found that he had been charged 23 quadrillion dollars. According to CNN the man then panicked and wondered if he had accidentally bought Europe at the petrol station. It turned out it was a mistake caused by a “temporary programming error”.
And that was Stick News for Friday the 17th of July. Kia ora.
You might have heard the word replica before. A replica is a copy. And the verb is replicate.
replicatev. make an exact copy of; reproduce
In today’s song, Brooke sings: I couldn't replicate your touch or love anyone again this much
Which means something like, the way you touch me is amazing and no one would be as good as you.
Knock, knock. Who's there? You know! You know who? AVADA KEDAVRA.

The sky opens up over me and you And you don't seem to mind that we're soaked through You kiss me in the rain, I forget what I'm moaning about And I know I wouldn't be the same without you
[Chorus] I wouldn't be the same without you I wouldn't be the same without you
I laugh at my own jokes and what I deem to be clever wit And you don't seem to mind that I'm so stupid You kiss me once again, I forget what I'm babbling about And I know I wouldn't be the same without you
I couldn't replicate your touch or love anyone again this much But I wouldn't be the same without you
I wouldn't be the same I wouldn't be the same I wouldn't be the same without you Without you Without you Without you
