This is from a good song:
"I was once like you are now, and I know that itís not easy,
To be calm when youíve found something going on."
What's the meaning of going on in this thread please?! I failled to understand it from the dictionary.
Wow thanks so much Riverkid, I'm so happy to receive answers from a Canadian, I really love Canada.
Ok you can see the whole song in the poetry and songs section, I've just posted it. You may understand it more.
Itís not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
Youíre still young, thatís your fault,
Thereís so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Iím happy.
I was once like you are now, and I know that itís not easy,
To be calm when youíve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything youíve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.
It's still hard to tell what 'going on' means here, Sara. With the other context, the father telling the son that he can marry, it doesn't seem like my first idea was completely accurate, though it can't be ruled out.
I guess it's time to ask Cat, "What did/do you mean by ...?"
We do this all the time in language. We understand all the words, the structures but we just miss the intended meaning.
