Μάθηματα ζωής.

Όλοι μας έχουμε κάποιον ή κάτι που κάποια στιγμή στη ζωή μας μάς τα εξήγησε όλα (ή έστω αρκετά). Εμένα μου τα εξήγησε όλα το έργο του Στίβεν Σόντχαϊμ, πρώτα οι στίχοι και μετά η μουσική του.

Αυτή τη στιγμή που γράφω ό,τι γράφω, έκλεισε ένας κύκλος στη ζωή μου. Και αυτό που μου έχει κολλήσει στο μυαλό είναι αυτό το τραγούδι του από το έργο του Merrily We Roll Along.

All right, now you know:
Life is crummy.
Well, now you know.

I mean, big surprise:
People love you and tell you lies.
Bricks can fall out of clear blue skies.
Put your dimple down,
Now you know.

Okay, there you go —
Learn to live with it,
Now you know.

It's called flowers wilt,
It's called apples rot,
It's called theives get rich and saints get shot,
It's called God don't answer prayers a lot,
Okay, now you know.

Okay, now you know,
Now forget it.
Don't fall apart at the seams.
It's called letting go your illusions,
And don't confuse them with dreams.

Yes sir, quite a blow —
Don't regret it,
And don't let's go to extremes.
It's called what's your choice?
It's called count to ten.
It's called burn your bridges, start again.
You should burn them every now and then
Or you'll never grow!

Because now you grow.
That's the killer, is
Now you grow.

You're right, nothing's fair,
And it's all a plot,
And tomorrow doesn't look so hot —
Right, you better look at what you've got:
Over here, hello?
Okay, now you know,
Right?


Εντάξει. Ξέρω.
