Lenka – Knock Knock
A second, a minute, an hour, a day goes by
I’m hopin’ just to be by your side
I’m turnin’ the handle, it won’t open
Don’t make me wait ’cause right now I need your smile
Knock, knock

When life had locked me out I turned to you
So open the door
‘Cause you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’
Little louder, little louder

A warm bath, a good laugh, an old song that you know by heart
I’ve tried it but they all leave me cold
So now I’m here waitin’ to see you
My remedy for all that’s been hurtin’ me
Knock, knock

When life had locked me out I turned to you
So open the door
‘Cause you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

You seem to know the way
To turn my frown upside down
You always know what to say
To make me feel like everything’s okay

Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’
Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’

Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’
Little louder, little louder

When life had locked me out I turned to you
And you open the door
And you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

When life had knocked me down I turned to you
And you open the door
And you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you
Nothin’ works like you

When life had locked me out I turned to you
And you open the door
And you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

.. ketika segalanya seakan menjadi lebih rumit, selalu ada saja seseorang yang siap mengulurkan tangannya untuk mengangkat kita.

Technicolour – Paloma Faith

Once upon a time, my friends it feels like yesterday
I was living lonesome in a world of disarray
Everything was a black and white, there wasn’t even gray
And every morning waking up on groundhog day

Chorus:
It was all in monochrome without the lies
Just like a silver screen you walk into my life
You taught the stars to light up what we find
I come alive saturated in your charms

W
e kiss the sky and dancing towards rainbows
Now it’s all in technicolor with you

I lived in the blackest house with seven pure white cats
The bleak eyed look of every day hidden deep inside my heart
The notes on the piano now remind me of my past
And now you’re here right by my side I hope that we will last

Chorus

Yellow, orange, pink, red, and blue
Let’s paint the town, darling us two

You bring your pallet and I will sing the sub bar
We are just two birds of a feather

Fade To Black

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

T
hings are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this cant be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now hes gone

No one but me can save myself, but its too late
Now I cant think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye

(Fade To Black – Metallica)

.. ketika aku bilang selalu, itu berarti selamanya.

Nothing's ever built to last

Do you know what’s worth fighting for?
When it’s not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?

Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You’re in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

When you’re at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul

Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn’t pass
Nothing’s ever built to last
You’re in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?

When it’s time to live and let die
And you can’t get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You’re in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Can't take that away

T hey can say
Anything they want to say
Try to bring me down
But I will not allow anyone to succeed hanging clouds over me

And they can try

Hard to make me feel that I

Don’t matter at all

But I refuse to falter in what I believe or lose faith in my dreams

‘C ause there’s
There’s a light in me
That shines brightly
They can try
But they can’t take that away from me
From me

T hey can do
Anything they want to you
If you let them in
But they won’t ever win
If you cling to you pride, and just push them aside

See I..
I have learned
There’s an inner peace I own
Something in my soul that they can not possess
So I won’t be afraid and the darkness will fade

‘C ause there’s
There’s a light in me
That shines brightly, They can try,
But they can’t take that away from me

T hey can’t take this
Precious love I’ll always have inside me
Certainly the Lord will guide me where I need to go

T hey can say
Anything they want to say
Try to bring me down
But I won’t face the ground
I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach

O h, Lord, they do try
Hard to make me feel that I
Don’t matter at all
But I refuse to falter
In what I believe or lose faith in my dreams

‘C ause there’s a light in me
That shines brightly

They can try but they can’t take that away from me

Mr. Smiley

B elakangan ini banyak orang besar yang satu satu meninggalkan kita. Orang-orang besar yang meninggalkan banyak karya hebat yang meninggalkan kesan bukan hanya di otak tetapi juga di hati.

J adi teringat pada satu sosok yang saya pikir selalu tersenyum. Walau mungkin sebenarnya beliau tidak bermaksud seperti itu, entah kenapa saya tidak pernah melihat sirat marah, dengki atau hal-hal negatif lainnya dari wajah bapak beranak 4, yang 2 diantaranya kembar ini. Sebagai seniman, pemilik nama asli Chrismansyah Rahardi ini memiliki prestasi di bidang musik yang bisa dibilang melegenda di negeri ini. Karya-karyanya selalu mendapat antusiasme yang tinggi khususnya dari para penggemar, ataupun dari masyarakat luas. Berpuluh-puluh lagu menarik perhatian dan berbekas lama di ingatan.

P enyanyi yang tanggal 16 September 2009 nanti ini kiranya genap berusia 60 tahun, di awal karirnya beberapa kali berganti band, antara lain band Sabda Nada (1968), yang kemudian berubah menjadi band Gypsy (1969), disusul dengan bergabung dalam band The Pro?s (1972), setelah itu beliau memilih berkarir solo. Sampai pada tahun 1977 beliau berhasil memenangkan Lomba Karya Cipta Lagu Remaja Prambors, dan sekaligus mempopulerkan lagu Lilin Lilin Kecil. Sejak itu beliau menelurkan deretan lagu yang berulang kali menjadi hits. Semisal lagu Badai Pasti Berlalu, Sabda Alam, Aku Cinta Dia

S aya masih ingat dengan jelas, bagaimana 22 tahun lalu saya berlatih menari modern untuk perpisahan TK menggunakan salah satu lagu beliau dan dengan sukses mendapatkan pujian dari para guru dan orangtua teman-teman .. Hip Hip Hura Hura. Lagu yang ceria, walau dengan musikal yang sederhana.

D imalam minggu
Kupergi ke pesta
Pesta meriah
Ulang tahun kawanku
Semua yang datang
Bergaya ceria
Berdansa dan gembira

D itengah pesta kulihat si dia, lincah gayanya
Dandan masa kini
Ingin hatiku mencium pipinya
Tapi malu rasanya

Reff;
O h hip hip hura hura…
Aku suka dia…
Aku jatuh cinta…
Sungguh suka dia …
Sungguh cinta dia…
Hip hip hura hura

U ntuk semua eksplorasi bakat dan dedikasi kalian. S alut !

Kecewa

Aku merajuk pada titik-titik air dari langit dan dingin ..

 

bruxelles_street_i_by_zardo

 

Sedikit waktu yang kau miliki. Luangkanlah untukku

Harap secepatnya datangi aku

S’kali ini ku mohon padamu. Ada yang ingin ku sampaikan

Sempatkanlah…

Hampa kesal dan amarah. S’luruhnya ada dibenakku

Tandai seketika

Hati yang tak terbalas

Oleh cintamu…

Kuingin marah, melampiaskan tapi kuhanyalah sendiri disini

Ingin kutunjukkan pada siapa saja yang ada

Bahwa hatiku kecewa…

Sedetik menunggumu disini, s’perti seharian

Berkali kulihat jam ditangan. Demi membunuh waktu

Tak kulihat tanda kehadiranmu

Yang semakin meyakiniku

Kau tak datang

Kecewa

(Bunga Citra Lestari)
