I’ve Been Thinking (about getting older)


I’ve been thinking about getting older

In looks and style

Less makeup, meanings, coffee, food and drinks

Stop nurturing my network status, feeding it with comments, likes and links

And keeping up to date with what friends I’ve never met feel and think.

 

I’ve been thinking about leaving the city

Leaving it for good

Less people, noise, busses, shops and fashion

Stop taking in the downtown high speed that makes me walk too fast

And makes my pulse escalate out of stress, not passion

 

I’ve been thinking about these things

I’m telling them to you now 

I’m here, I’m crying out for help, for you to come and show me how

to do something, or simply stop thinking.

 

I’ve been thinking about having another child

For a long time

Less is not always more

Sometimes it’s just too little

And it’s fair to call me greedy, I was never pretty near the core

But I’ll keep on begging it to stop cause will alone won’t work - I know for sure

 

I’ve been thinking about these things

I’m telling them to you now 

I’m here, I’m crying out for help, for you to come and show me how

to do something about it

 

Cause if thinking if is all I do

well, then I am in trouble

It’s like freezing halfway out there on the tightrope

I’ll fall

And if I survive, then who knows if I’ll ever think a useful thought again at all

 

I’ve been thinking about these things

I’m telling them to you now 

I’m here, I’m crying out for help, for you to come and show me how

to make a move or simply stop thinking

Simply stop thinking
