November is almost coming to an end; November in Vienna usually means a far-away birthday to celebrate (my best friend’s), snow, and a lot of stress. After two eventful nights of Blue Bird Festival, a successful interview with Rocky Votolato, and a weekend that rushed past at the speed of light, I’m more tired that I was on Friday. This year, here’s what my favorite month of the year brought: it started snowing a couple of days ago, I’ve realised that even what seems simple can sometimes also be complicated, I made a really lovely music-themed birthday cake (pictures to come), and I have a beginning of flu which already got my head blowing up like a kid’s birthday balloon and my nose running like the Niagara Falls. This song is more than welcome now, even in all of its sadness, to listen to over and over again, with a pile of tissues and a cup of tea by my side, staring at the walls.
So I’m waiting for this test to end
So these lighter days can soon begin
I’ll be alone but maybe more carefree
Like a kite that floats so effortlessly
And now my sorrow seems so far away
Until I’m taken by these bolts of pain
But I turn them off and tuck them away
’till these rainy days that make them stay
And then I’ll cry so hard to these sad songs
And the words still ring, once here now gone
And they echo through my head everyday
And I don’t think they’ll ever go away
But I’m about to give this one more shot.
