    Hi There

    1) I'm looking for a word, or a phrase, that when people ask you: Do you understand this passage? . The fact is you only understood 30% or 50% or 70%... How do you response them? Something like" Just a little"
    2) There's and old song called "Seasons in the sun", what does its title mean?
    3)Again, in an old song "Top of the world" , there's a line:

    Everything I want the world to be

    Is now coming true especially for me
    Why not to, but for here (before me)?

    Re: Hi There

    1) I like your response - "I understood 30% of it." Gives an estimate of how much they still need to explain.
    2) Seasons in the sun could be understood to be 'good times'; especially by people living in cold climates!
    3) Coming true for me/ Coming true to me. I'm sure there is an explanation of the grammar, but common usage is 'for me.'
