Grammar focus on: compound forms (phrases and phrasal verbs).
Activity: reorder the words given between brackets

Tips for teachers: after the listening activity, why don't you ask your students to form small groups and look up in the dictionary for the compound forms met?Subsequently they can write down all the synonyms found by their peers.
Linguistic aspects: in reading the lyrics I run into the phrase "playing with your string" which I suppose should have a special meaning here. I meant it as it would say "taking things too far with you", but honestly I am not so positive about it. Therefore any suggestion will be greatly appreciated from you!
Today I end this post with the verb "to lance" meaning "to affect someone strongly and immediately".
