about

This song is about the unhapiness you can get when you start comparing yourself with others, when your ego is already shaky. You will always find somebody who earns more at the job, develops a richer personal life, achieves what you would only hope for.

lyrics

My friends from school earn more than me
My brother and his girlfriend are 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The programming language I learnt is obsolete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

A song by my musician friend
is successful 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

But 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

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

But 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
