2009: A clean slate

En los ultimos dias, estuve buscando una cancion para poner en esta entrada [que habia pensado desde hace varias semanas] y la unica que me venia a la mente era "My way" de Frank Sinatra. Ni idea de por que.

En realidad estaba buscando una cancion con la tematica (tragic, I know) de "Adios, amores y dolores pasados", pero no se me ocurrio ninguna... mientras la de Sinatra seguia resonando en mi cabeza...

Hoy, a pocos minutos de escribir la entrada, I gave up and gave in.

My Way ~ Frank Sinatra

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.

I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I've had a few,
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course,
Each careful step along the byway,
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall,
And did it my way.

I've loved, I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill, my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that
And may I say - not in a shy way,
Oh, no, oh no, not me,
I did it my way.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!

This year, just like the song describes, I loved, I laughed, I cried... I took a chance, said what I really felt and took a blow... but what the heck, I did it my way...

Now that I come to think about it, this is the perfect song para terminar un año e iniciar otro.
