I saw Avalanche City play in 2011. It was at an event for the final of the Rugby World Cup on Queens Wharf here in Auckland and I thought they were great. When I say "they", Avalanche City is actually just one person - Dave Baxter - but he has a band with him when he plays live.
You and I is a great song for studying the conditional tense. It's a love song, very sweet and romantic, he's telling a girl all the things he would do for her.
And the structure's usually: If + past tense ... I would ...
If you found your toothpaste empty I would squeeze out just a little more And if you had the sweetest victory I'd high five you 'til our hands were sore
Til is short for until. It can be spelt like this, or this, or this.
It's very common to say 'til instead of until.
For example: I had to work 'til nine last night.
But you don't tend to shorten until if you're using it at the start of a sentence.
For example: Until last year I'd never lived alone.
FIFA is an international body responsible for organizing football's major international tournaments including the World Cup.

The final will be held at North Harbour Stadium in Auckland.
And that was Stick News for Friday the 29th of May. Kia ora.
90,000, 100,000 ... The game's starting. Are you coming? Hang on, I'm busy.
How about we throw in a beachfront property and a massive farm? Kia ora, John.
