These days

I guess i would be a lot happier if i could evolve into a more strong, determined and affirmative person, but the truth is i don't really know how to do that and i wish i had a trained recipe to get there.
I often get disappointed at people because i set my expectations too high and i sometimes need getting away from everybody for a while to get things in perspective, and also to be able to forgive and forget.
The most amazing thing is that, in most cases, the causers of disappointment don't even get it. Which takes me to thinking that it must be my fault and in the future i must be (even) more selective, less tolerant and less available towards people that are completely self-centered, selfish and senseless.
These days i'm doing what i can to accomplish that.
But not all are bad news: i've also been working on this and you'll soon hear/learn more about it.

este post lembrou-me isto da nico:

I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking these days
These days
These days I seem to think a lot about the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had the chance to

I've stopped my rambling
I don't do too much gambling these days
These days
These days I seem to think about how all the changes came about my way
And I wonder if I'd see another highway

I've had a lover
I don't I'd risk another these days
These days
And if I seem to be afraid to live the life that I have made and sob
It's just that I've been losing so long

I've stopped my dreaming
I don't do too much scheming these days
These days
These days I sit in cornerstones and count the time in quarter tones to ten
Please don't confront me with my failures
I have not forgotten them

(desculpa o comprimento do comentário.)

na mouche! no link (these days a azul) está uma versão dessa música da annie (st. vincent) da qual gosto muito também!

na mouche é bom e mais ainda porque não tinha reparado.
já fui ver - ainda assim, ainda assim, a versão da nico continua por superar.
(acho que a marianne faithful, quando muito muito nova ainda, também tinha uma versão - mas teria de verificar aqui por casa.)
