Resolução de ano novo

Porque a gente costuma olhar pra fora, para quem a gente acha que deveria ser aos olhos dos outros, e raramente olha pra dentro, para quem a gente realmente quer ser. A música é um mimo, a letra é a cara dela – Amanda Palmer – e desconfio que deveria ser mais a nossa cara também. Um bom plano pra 2012. Quase um mantra.

In my mind in a future five years from now
I’m a hundred and twenty pounds
And I never get hungover
Because I will be the picture of discipline
Never minding what state I’m in
And I will be someone I admire
And it’s funny how I imagined
That I would be that person now
But it does not seem to have happened
Maybe I’ve just forgotten how to see
That I’m not exactly the person that I thought I’d be

And in my mind in the far-away here-and-now
I’ve become in-control somehow
And I never lose my wallet
Because I will be the picture of discipline
Never fucking up anything
And I’ll be a good defensive driver
And it’s funny how I imagined
That I would be that person now
But it does not seem to have happened
Maybe I’ve just forgotten how to see
That I’ll never be the person that I thought I’d be

And in my mind when I’m old I am beautiful
Planting tulips and vegetables
Which I will mindfully watch over
Not like me now – I’m so busy with everything
That I don’t look at anything
But I’m sure I’ll look when I am older
And it’s funny how I imagined
That I could be that person now
But that’s not what I want but that’s what I wanted
That I’d be giving up somehow
How strange to see
That I don’t want to be the person that I want to be

And in my mind I imagine so many things
Things that aren’t really happening
And when they put me in the ground
I’ll start pounding the lid
Saying, “I haven’t finished yet,
I still have a tattoo to get,
It says, ‘I’m living in the moment'”
And it’s funny how I imagined
That I could win this win-less fight
But maybe it isn’t all that funny
That I’ve been fighting all my life
But maybe I have to think it’s funny
If I want to live before I die
And maybe it’s funniest of all
To think I’ll die before I actually see
That I am exactly the person that I want to be

Fuck yes – I am exactly the person that I want to be!
