Good Life

26 Aug

¿Alguna vez se han encontrado en una etapa de la vida en la que sienten que necesitan un cambio, preferiblemente radical? Seguro que sí.

Yo llevo días en los que literalmente estoy harta de todo, y cuando digo “todo” me refiero a cosas como la incompetencia y la mediocridad, que son los atributos subyacentes con los que tengo que lidiar día tras día en el trabajo, en mi entorno social y en otros tantos aspectos de mi vida que me hacen pensar que aunque tengo una “buena vida”, podría estar en otro sitio “mejor” o que me ofrezca “más”.

Hoy me topé con esta canción en el Caralibro y al leer la letra siento que no ha sido una casualidad, llevo una buena vida, no tengo de qué quejarme, pero comienzo a sentirme cansada de este lugar. Ahí les dejo el video y la letra, a ver si alguien más se siente identificado.

Woke up in London yesterday
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
Don’t really know how I got here
I got some pictures on my phone

New names and numbers that I don’t know
Address to places like Abbey Road
Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want
We’re young enough to say

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don’t know
Where I’ve been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Col-or-ado

Sometimes there’s airplanes I can’t jump out
Sometimes there’s bullshit that don’t work now
We are god of stories but please tell me-e-e-e
What there is to complain about

When you’re happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life

Hopelessly
I feel like there might be something that I’ll miss
Hopelessly
I feel like the window closes oh so quick
Hopelessly
I’m taking a mental picture of you now
‘Cuz hopelessly
The hope is we have so much to feel good about

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

Oh yeah
Good, good life
Good life
Ooh

Listen
To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don’t know
Where I’ve been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Colorado

Sometimes there’s airplanes I can’t jump out
Sometimes there’s bullshit that don’t work now
We are god of stories but please tell me
What there is to complain about
