I can’t wait to wake up and feel like I’ve been run over by a bus because I got home at 5 am after a gig.


I can’t wait till curfew is something I associate with my mom and me being a teenager.

I can’t wait to get stressed out just by looking at my calendar.

I can’t wait to use my calendar and have Sunday as a restitution day after a long week.


I can’t wait to go to a concert and feel the rush through my body at the first kicks on the bass drum.

I can’t wait to have sore feet, rasping throat and a little tinnitus afterwards.


I can’t wait to not think: “I caught it” when I wake up with a headache.

I can’t wait till Corona isn’t the main topic of most conversations.


I can’t wait to fear the long needle coming towards my shoulder. Both times.


I can’t wait to have my life back.

Till we get our lives back.
