It’s my life

 

 

II

 

I’ve lived a life

Done pride and shame

in equal measure

Travelled farther than my father

(Να είσαι καλύτερος άνθρωπος από τον πατέρα σου)

Dance stepping around his pitfalls all the way

I’ve held the stage

An electric beast at my back

And held new life in my hands

Knowing in the instant I’d never

Ever be the same

I’ve loved

And hated

Been loved

And hated

And, though it all means something

All of it occurred

While I was waiting for her

I waited so long

That a whole life happened

Before I laid eyes on her

This here

This now-

 

Is my second life.
