I see myself, now.
I'm 6 years old, running after a ball in a vast green field.
I swim the pool back at home.
And I eat barbeque with family and friends.
There is so much love in the house.
I sleep in my parents' bed.

I see myself, now.
I'm 17 years old, running after girls in a crowded dark club.
I swim the ocean 20 miles away.
And I eat pizzas with friends I'll never see again.
There is so much revolt in the house.
I sleep with ghost faces in unknown beds.

I see myself, now.
I'm 25 years old, running after jobs in a big gray city.
I swim whenever I can, wherever I manage to.
And I eat nothing but cold rice and pasta.
There is so much hurry in the house.
I sleep alone.

I see myself, now.
I'm 40 years old, running because the doctor said I should.
I swim public pools because the doctor said I should.
And I eat salad and stay away from meat (because the doctor said I should).
There is so much nostalgia in the house.
I sleep with the love of my life.

I see myself, now.
I'm 60 years old and I don't run anymore.
I swim the ocean 100 meters away.
And I eat beans and soup.
There is so much loneliness in the house.
I sleep in an asylum.

I see myself, now.
I'm 80 years old and I can't walk.
I don't swim anymore.
And I'm fed by tubes.
There is so much happiness in the house.
I sleep in a coffin.
