Corinne, Her Beloved Husband and a Goodbye Song

Bukannya aku mau mengalami perpisahan, bukan. Tapi bukankah perpisahan gak bisa lepas dari jalan hidup manusia? Ya, terima aja kenyataanya entah kapan dan dimana kata-kata lawas itu benar adanya. Ada perpisahan di setiap perjumpaan. Bukannya aku mau mempersiapkan lagu perpisahan yang entah akan didengarkan kapan pula, bukan. Aku hanya mau cerita, ada lagu tentang perpisahan dan kehilangan yang paling aku suka. Lagu ini ada di album sang penyanyi yang dibuat sebelum dan setelah ia ditinggal mati suaminya. Corinne Bailey Rae. Penyanyi yang bikin aku sukses nungguin Metro TV karena mau ngangkat profilnya di suatu siang yang panas sepulang aku sekolah. Aku ingin lebih kenal si penyanyi Put Your Records On ini. Suatu hari aku baca majalah and it says that Corinne looks so desperate by her husband’s death. Aku pun menyimpulkan kalau lagu yang Corinne nyanyikan untuk mengenang kematian suaminya di album The Sea berjudul Are You Here dan The Sea. I don’t know if, is this me who dramatic atau ya memang lagunya sangat menyentuh.

Are You Here

He’s a real live wire
He’s the best of his kind
Wait till you see those eyes
He dresses like this different scene
He’ll kiss you make you feel sixteen
What’s it even mean?

Are you here
Are you here
Are you here, cause my heart recalls that
It all seems the same
It all feels the same

Pick me up

It’s hard to recall the taste of summer
When everywhere around, the chill of winter
It gets so far away

Are you here

And he comes to lay me down in a garden of tuberose’s
When he comes around there’s nothing more to imagine
Just tuberose’s
Tuberose’s

Are you here
Are you here
Are you here, cause my heart recalls that it
All seems like
All looks like
It all feels like
It tasted like
Tasted
Tasted like

When he comes to lay me down in a garden of tuberose’s
When he comes around there’s nothing more to imagine
Just tuberose’s
Tuberose’s

Wait till you see those eyes

The Sea

I never knew you were standing on the shore,
It says everything,
Explains everything.
That from then on it couldn’t be just like before,
it says everything,
Changes everything.
So don’t you stand there wishing your life would fade away
And don’t you go round with anyone who makes you feel ashamed.

Goodbye paradise,
I hope there’s something you could try
Goodbye
You’re so changed that you’d give it all away
Goodbye,
Goodbye

I saw your face in the faded light,
Said everything,
Explained everything.
It haunts all your days and it comes to you at night,
You did everything,
Blame anything.
But don’t you cut those ribbons to take away the pain
And don’t you go round with that same old crowd,
They make you feel ashamed

Goodbye paradise,
I hope there’s something you could try
Goodbye
You’re so changed that you’d give it all away
Goodbye,
Goodbye paradise

The sea,
The majestic sea,
Breaks everything,
Crushes everything,
Cleans everything,
Takes everything
From me

Saat pertama kali mendengar lagu ini aku langsung mengira kalau lagu ini untuk Jason Rae, her beloved husband. Just look at the lyrics. Perpisahan dengan orang yang dicintai memang bisa begitu meyedihkan, ya?
