My friends from school earn more than me
My brother and his girlfriend getting married
My ex is giving birth to her second child
and i‘m left behind

My mother is still stronger than me
The programming language I learnt got obsolete
My science friend is well known for the power of his mind
and i‘m left behind

They wake up and feel the sunshine on their skin
While I need medication just to keep okay within
I sit down and think, while my knee supports my chin
about what I should be, and where to begin

My colleague is a speaker at a conference
He rehearses presentations at home to achieve the best
But when I come home I just want to unwind
that’s why I‘m left behind

A song by my musician friend
is successfull on the internet
Music journalists write that she‘s really one of a kind
and I‘m left behind

They wake up and feel the sunshine on their skin
While I need medication just to keep okay within
I sit down and think, while my knee supports my chin
about what I should be, and where to begin

I‘m the dog that stays in the car
I’m still a fan and you’ve become a star
Even if I stretch myself quite far
I’ll never reach such a high bar

They wake up and feel the sunshine on their skin
While I need medication just to keep okay within
I sit down and think, while my knee supports my chin
about what I should be, and where to begin

They wake up and feel the sunshine on their skin
While I need medication just to keep okay within
I sit down and think, while my knee supports my chin
about what I should be, and where to begin

There I am I‘m still sitting here
In one eye a tear and in the other a new idea
I‘m gonna start a new project today
I‘ll act as if I don‘t care about my previous fails

(From far behind it all looks quite small
Is it even big enough to be a goal)
