Norah's Lullaby

Terkadang, saat merasa diakbrabi hening, saya mendengarkan
dia. Kau tahu? Mendengarkannya seperti sedang mendengarkan seorang sahabat bercerita. Mengisahkan padamu tentang kisah-kisah cinta. Memberimu pelukan erat, ketika kisah cinta sedang tak bahagia. Dan, memberimu kata-kata seperti, "suatu hari, dia akan menyesal melakukan hal itu padamu," ketika kau pikir cinta sedang tak memihak. ;D

"Heart Of Mine"

Heart of mine,
Be still
You can play with fire,
But you'll get the bill
Don't let him know
Don't let him know that you love him
Oh, don't be a fool, don't be blind
Heart of mine

Heart of mine,
Go back home
You've got no reason to wander
No reason to roam
Don't let him see
Don't let him see that you need him
Oh, don't push yourself over the line
Heart of mine


Heart of mine,
Go back where you been
The only trouble with you
Is if you let him in
Don't let him hear
Don't let him hear where you're goin'
Oh, I'm tired of ties that bind
Heart of mine


Heart of mine,
So malicious and so full of guile
I give you an inch
And you take a mile
Don't let yourself fall
Don't let yourself stumble
Oh, do the time, don't do the crime
Heart of mine

Heart of mine...

Oh, oh, oh...

Heart of mine...

Dan, juga seperti seorang sahabat yang memberikan nyala semangat; yang bilang bahwa kau tak sendiri. Bahwa mimpi-mimpi akan membawakanmu bahagia, bersamanya.

"Rosie's Lullaby"

She walked by the ocean,
And waited for a star,
To carry her away.

Feelin' so small,
At the bottom of the world,
Lookin' up to God.

She tries to take deep breaths,
To smell the salty sea,
As it moves over her feet.

The water pulls so strong,
And no-one is around,
And the moon is looking down.

Rosie - come with me,
Close your eyes - and dream.

The big ships are rollin',
And lightin' up the night,
And she calls out, but they just her pass by.

The waves are crashin',
But not making a sound,
Just mouthing along.

Rosie - come with me,
Close your eyes and dream,
Close your eyes and dream,
Close your eyes and dream.

Yang kadang bersamamu mencari jawab. Tentang bahagia. Tentang kehilangan. Dan tentang sepi yang kadang bisa menggila.

"Carnival Town"

Round 'n round
Has got you under it's spell
Moving so fast...but
Going nowhere

Up 'n down
Ferris wheel
Tell me how does it feel
To be so high...
Looking down here

Is it lonely?

Did the clown
Make you smile
He was only your fool for a while
Now he's gone back home
And left you wandering there

Is it lonely?

Dan, terkadang dia seperti mewujud dirimu, yang inginkan hari tiba-tiba saja menghilang, membawamu pada masa ketika langit mewarna, bukan lagi kelabu. Yang kadang tak ingin terperangkap lama dalam mimpi. Dalam mimpi yang hanya hitam putih. Yang kadang bilang, dia pun tak bisa sendiri, ingin kau ada dan genggam tangannya.

"Wake Me Up"

Wake me up when it's over,
Wake me up when it's done,
When he's gone away and taken everything,
Wake me up.

Wake me up when the skies are clearing,
When the water is still,
'cause I will not watch the ships sail away so,
Please say you will.

If it were any other day,
This wouldn't get the best of me.

But today I'm not so strong,
So lay me down with a sad song,
And when it stops then you know I've been,
Gone too long.

But don't shake me awake,
Don't bend me or I will break,
Come find me somewhere between my dreams,
With the sun on my face.

I will still feel it later on,
But for now I'd rather be asleep."

Dan, terkadang, aku biarkan saja dia bercerita. Tentang sesuatu yang tak seharusnya pernah kau khianati, kepercayaan, misalnya. Tentang apa saja. Tentang dunia.
Tentang segala.

"Things You Don't Have To Do"

I walk down the diamond studded concrete canyon
Nobody looked me in the eye
Tried to fly to the moon
Only made it to the sky
I was looking, looking for
I couldn't find a friend
Searching for a clear connection
Without a digital send

Ain't it just a little scary sometimes
To find the lies that you know to be true
I'll find you smiling about
Things you don't have to do

Bill doesn't call me anymore
I hear he's found religion
Big haired blonde apprentice beautician
And all the words and gesticulations that came before
Don't seem to mean a thing
You can feel fine to drop a dime
If you're ever hanging by a string

Ain't it just a little scary sometimes
To find the lies that you know to be true
I'll find you smiling about
Things you don't have to do

I hear voices crying out
Echoes on the boulevard
Contentious rambling incantations
Of some senile bard
There's too much going on around here
To keep my head from spinning
And this constant acceleration
Blurs any ties to the beginning

Ain't it just a little scary sometimes
To find the lies that you know to be true
I'll find you smiling about
Things you don't have to do

Tentang cinta, lebih seringnya. Tapi, kau tahu, aku menyukainya. Mendengarkannya, seperti mendengarkan seorang sahabat. Yang kadang memberimu waktu untuk bertanya, tentang sesuatu yang kadang tak terbilang, yang tak kau pahami, tetapi sebenarnya kau pahami, sesuatu yang perlu kau tanyakan, kepada hatimu.

"Not Too Late"

Tell me how you've been,
Tell what you've seen,
Tell me that you'd like to see me too.

'cause my heart is full of no blood,
My cup is full of no love,
Couldn't take another sip even if I wanted.

But it's not too late,
Not too late for love.

My lungs are out of air,
Yours are holding smoke,
And it's been like that now for so long.

I've seen people try to change,
And I know it isn't easy,
But nothin' worth the time ever really is.

And it's not too late,
It's not too late for love,
For love,
For love,
For love.


p.s. I owe her pics!

No man loves life like him that's growing old.
