Año Nuevo Vida Vieja

OneWeekSingle.jpg

      Ya hace muchos años que el primero de enero no me despierto con el concierto de año nuevo retransmitido en directo por La Primera desde Viena; tampoco con la retransmisión de los saltos de trampolín de esquí desde Garmisch-Partenkirchen. En su lugar, me despierto con una ligera resaca que no lo es tanto. Cansancio.

      En bata, me arrastro hasta la cocina y almuerzo -ya no es desayuno- sobras de anoche recalentadas en el microondas. Me perdonará mi madre si me ve, pero desde que murió la abeula ya no nos reunimos para celebrar la comida que era tradicional. Quizás llame luego a mis tíos para desearles sin muchas ganas un Feliz Año Nuevo.

      Tras una ducha rápida, en vez de irme con mi familia al cine -otra estúpida tradición familiar-, me siento delante del ordenador y me dedico a limpiar carpetas de música y películas. Borro series de TV que ni siquiera he visto y varios cientos de correos que he dejado sin leer. Paso toda la tarde en una especie de estado melancólico inducido por el cansancio, bebiendo té digestivo y respondiendo unos correos que tenía atrasados -como resolución de ponerme al día-. Y todo ello mientras escucho en el winamp las que siempre han sido mis canciones favoritas.

      Mañana por la mañana, en vez de remolonear en la cama disfrutando de las vacaciones -ya ni recuerdo que son- me levantaré como cualquier otro día y me iré al trabajo.

      Y es que, a pesar del paso del tiempo, todo siguel igual.

BARENAKED LADIES LYRICS - ONE WEEK

It's been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side and said "I'm angry"
Five days since you laughed at me saying
"Get that together come back and see me"
Three days since the living room
I realized it's all my fault, but couldn't tell you
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
but it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry

Hold it now and watch the hoodwink
As I make you stop, think
You'll think you're looking at Aquaman
I summon fish to the dish, although I like the Chalet Swiss
I like the sushi
'cause it's never touched a frying pan
Hot like wasabe when I bust rhymes
Big like LeAnn Rimes
Because I'm all about value
Bert Kaempfert's got the mad hits
You try to match wits, you try to hold me but I bust through
Gonna make a break and take a fake
I'd like a stinkin achin shake
I like vanilla, it's the finest of the flavours
Gotta see the show, cause then you'll know
The vertigo is gonna grow
Cause it's so dangerous,
you'll have to sign a waiver

How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad
Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Can't understand what I mean?
Well, you soon will
I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve
I have a history of taking off my shirt

It's been one week since you looked at me
Threw your arms in the air
and said "You're crazy"
Five days since you tackled me
I've still got the rug burns on both my knees
It's been three days since the afternoon
You realized it's not my fault
not a moment too soon
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
And now I sit back and wait til you say you're sorry

Chickity China the Chinese chicken
You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin'
Watchin' X-Files with no lights on
We're dans la maison
I hope the Smoking Man's in this one
Like Harrison Ford I'm getting frantic
Like Sting I'm tantric
Like Snickers, guaranteed to satisfy

Like Kurasawa I make mad films
Okay, I don't make films
But if I did they'd have a Samurai
Gonna get a set a' better clubs
Gonna find the kind with tiny nubs
Just so my irons aren't always flying off the back-swing
Gotta get in tune with Sailor Moon
'Cause the cartoon has got the boom anime babes
That make me think the wrong thing

How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad
Tryin' hard not to smile though I feel bad
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Can't understand what I mean?
Well, you soon will
I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve
I have a history of losing my shirt

It's been one week since you looked at me
Dropped your arms to your sides
and said "I'm sorry"
Five days since I laughed at you and said
"You just did just what I thought you were gonna do"
Three days since the living room
We realized we're both to blame,
but what could we do?
Yesterday you just smiled at me
Cause it'll still be two days till we say we're sorry

It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry
It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry
