Same old story
All the lost opportunities
Just because I couldn’t show real me
But who is real in this insane world?
Today I feel like the king of the world
Tomorrow clown of the county
Today everyone is celebrating with me
Tomorrow they are spitting on me
Why should I show my true face?
Because I can hide behind a clown’s makeup
When night arrives
I can remove my makeup and your contempt.
And move on.
By Markku Parviainen
I admit. I can’t live a so-called normal life. The last time I had a normal job was sometime in the late eighties. I have taken many risks, I have traveled a lot, and because I had an open mind, I met many wonderful people around the world.
I like to work with my own schedule and I like to have the freedom to choose the people around me.
I don’t need any negativity around me. We have just one life, and I prefer to experience life on my own terms.
Of course, it’s not always easy, but life can be hard anyway, so is it better to live your life with your own rules?
You are still here
I can see you now
You were away a long time
But now you came back
I missed you
Sometimes it’s easy to be with you
You know me
You understand me
But if you stay here
I can’t go back
So my old friend
Farewell until we will see again
