"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

some lyrics

Slow down you crazy child
You’re so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you’re so smart tell me why
You are still so afraid?

Where’s the fire?
What’s the hurry about?
You better cool it off before you burn it out
You got so much to do and only so many hours in a day

But you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want or you can just get old
You’re gonna kick off before you even get halfway through
When will you realize? Vienna waits for you.

Slow down, you’re doing fine
You can’t be everything you want to be before your time
Although it’s so romantic on the borderline tonight
Too bad that is the life you lead

You’re so ahead of yourself that you forget what you need
Though you can see when you’re wrong but you can’t always see when you’re right
You got your passion, you got your pride
But don’t you know only fools are satisfied?

Dream on but don’t imagine they’ll all come true
When will you realize? Vienna waits for you.
Slow down you crazy child
Take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while

It’s alright you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize? Vienna waits for you...
--Billy Joel's Vienna

i heard that song last night when i watched the movie, 13 going on 30. i thought of putting the lyrics here because... for no other reason, i just want to! for me, it is a wonderful lullaby. i just know i could tolerate hearing it one more time because it's like having an older conscience that sings, hehehe. yeah, yeah, go ahead, you can call me a hopeless case. :P

p.s. i just know, too, that part of me is really still stuck in the 80's. =D


  1. i liked "13 going on 30". ganda ng lesson.
