Lern’ von der Jugend von heute

Ein paar Tage sind für mich inzwischen vergangen, aber Erinnerungen bleiben bestehen.

Pubertät, Jugendjahre, schwere Zeiten. Ich fühlte mich unverstanden, suchte meinen Weg

Welche Unterstützung kam von den älteren Generationen? Sehr unterschiedlich. Manche Hinweise waren hilfreich, manche unvorstellbar oder provozierend.

Eltern und Senioren — denkt an Eure Jugend zurück. Und lasst los. Auch die Jugend von heute wird ihren Weg gehen.

Dazu habe ich ein schönes Lied von Amy Macdonald gefunden: Youth Of Today (Text steht unten auf der Seite)

We say what we want to say and we are the youth of today – Amy Macdonald

Maybe if you were some spirheaded guy
I would listen to what you have to say
But you’re just some incapable figure thinking you’re bigger, than me
But you’re not, yeah
You don’t know a thing about
The youth of today
Stayed in your opinion
making it ring in my head all day
And you say: My children weren’t the same
My children’s children they’re the ones to blame
And you say: in my day we were better behaved
But it’s not your day, no more
And we are the youth of today
Change your hair in every way and
We are the youth of today
We’ll say what we want to say and
We are the youth of today
Don’t care what you have to say, at all
And maybe if you had a, true point of view
I would listen, to you
But it’s just your onesided feeling
They keep getting in my way and
You don’t know a single thing about
The youth of today
Stayed in your opinion
making it ring in my head all day
And you say: My children weren’t the same
My children’s children they’re the ones to blame
And you say: in my day we were better behaved
But it’s not your day, no more
Than we are the youth of today
Change your hair in every way and
We are the youth of today
We’ll say what we want to say and
We are the youth of today
Don’t care what you have to say at all
And you say: My children weren’t the same
My children’s children they’re the ones to blame
And you say: in my day we were better behaved
But it’s not your day, no more
And we are the youth of today
Change your hair in every way and
We are the youth of today
We say what we want to say and
We are the youth of today
Don’t care what you have to say at all
