Happy, happy Birthday. Music We Love. For You.

I’m not afraid 
Of anything in this world 
There’s nothing you can throw at me 
That I haven’t already heard
I’m just trying to find 
A decent melody 
A song that I can sing 
In my own company
I never thought you were a fool 
But darling look at you 
You gotta stand up straight 
Carry your own weight 
These tears are going nowhere baby
You’ve got to get yourself together 
You’ve got stuck in a moment 
And now you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better 
Now you’re stuck in a moment 
And you can’t get out of it
I will not forsake 
The colors that you bring 
The nights you filled with fireworks 
They left you with nothing
I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see
You are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it’s tough and you can never get enough
Of what you don’t really need now, my, oh my
You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm ‚til you discover how deep
I wasn’t jumping, for me it was a fall
It’s a long way down to nothing at all
You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if your way should falter
Along on this stony pass
And if, and if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass
It’s just a moment
This time will pass
Lyrics: U2

Was ist wichtig? Mein Sohn hatte Geburtstag. Vor neun Jahren ist er geboren worden – mit drei Glückszeichen. Und wir haben trotz aller widrigen Umstände fröhlich gefeiert! Nach dem Auspacken der Geschenke haben wir seine Zitronen-Sahne-Geburtstagstorte probiert und zusammen eine große Tapetenrolle bemalt – jedes Mitglied der Familie hat sich auf einem Teil der Tapete verewigt.
Das Thema durfte er sich aussuchen: Dschungel. Mitten im Dschungelchaos das Dschungelherz. Oben drüber das aufklärerische Augendreieck. Ein Affe, der nach Früchten angelt. Eine Schlange, die verführt. Ein Tiger. Chaos, Farbenrausch. Love. Peace. Happiness. Sein Name. Seine Geburtstagszahl. Alle haben mitgemacht – ein starkes Familiengefühl. Das Aufhängen der Tapete an seiner Zimmertür.

Seine Freude.

Ein wunderschöner Geburtstag war das, Mami. Danke!

Ich drücke ihn sehr fest, hebe ihn hoch, als wäre er noch klein. Er ist ja so leicht wie eine Feder.
Wir halten uns lange fest.

Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
You say, one love, one life
When it’s one need in the night
One love, we get to share it
Leaves you baby if you don’t care for it
Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it’s too late tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We’re one but we’re not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One!
Love.
Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head
Did I ask too much? More than a lot
You gave me nothin‘ now it’s all I got
We’re one but we’re not the same
Well we hurt each other then we do it again
You say love is a temple, love a higher law
Love is a temple, love the higher law
You ask me to enter but then you make me crawl
And I can’t be holdin‘ on to what you got
When all you got is hurt
One love, one blood
One life, you got to do what you should
One life, with each other
Sisters, brothers
One life but we’re not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other.
One.
Lyrics: U2

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had

I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It’s a very, very mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello, teacher, tell me what’s my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had

I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It’s a very, very mad world, mad world

Enlarge your world
Mad world

Lyrics: Gary Jules

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. 

There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. 
You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. 
We can make the best or the worst of it. 
I hope you make the best of it. 
And I hope you see things that startle you. 
I hope you feel things you never felt before. 
I hope you meet people with a different point of view. 
I hope you live a life you’re proud of. 
If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

Alles Liebe, alles Gute, Gesundheit und Zuversicht für dich, mein lieber Sohn, zu deinem 9. Geburtstag! Wir alle lieben dich und bitten inständig für dich.
Mami und Wolf, Johannes, Sophie, Clara, Dorothea und Jonathan.
