Goodnight by Sondre Lerche

I have a long list of reason if you ask me why I love Heartbeat Radio’s album so much. And this lyrics of ‘Goodnight’ is one of the reason.

Good day, I like you when you’re drunk
I only wish I was there
Not trapped upon this bunk
Hurry and to god knows where

In a land far, far away
In a low-budget production
I make up stories of you in seduction

You may wanna add a thing or two
Between the lines, tell me all about it
And I’ll try to make the words jump off
The pages at any time

Lost in correspondences all day
For the lack of better words
I’ll choose them carefully
And say I bet you’re quite a sight

I can’t pretend I don’t care
I’m not the jealous kind
But I can’t imagine and stare
Watchin’ your daylight fly by

Or topping my darkest confessions
Reading the things that I write
Those are questions

You may wanna add a thing or two
Between the lines, tell me all about it
And I’ll try to make the words spill
From your pager every time

Girl, I could be doing this all day
But the lack of flesh and blood
Beneath the words leaves me inane

Is it a drug or a word?
Maybe just a nice piece of fiction
Won’t I ever cease to obsess
Over this universal addiction?

In a word you’re all that I want
Oh, you’re the only prescription
But nothing in here seems to match
Your description

You may wanna add a thing or two
Between the lines, tell me all about it
And I’ll try to make the words jump off
The pages all the time

Strange abbreviations can prevent my serenading you
In message number nine
I’ll try to make the sentence last all day
And for lack of better words
I’ll choose them carefully and say goodnight

You can listen to the album too.

Champagne Supernova – Oasis

How many special people change
How many lives are living strange
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannon ball
Where were you while we were getting high?

Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova in the sky

Wake up the dawn and ask her why
A dreamer dreams she never dies
Wipe that tear away now from your eye
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannon ball
Where were you while we were getting high?

Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova

‘Cause people believe that they’re
Gonna get away for the summer
But you and I, we live and die
The world’s still spinning round
We don’t know why
Why, why, why, why

How many special people change
How many lives are living strange
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannon ball
Where were you while we were getting high?

Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova

Cos people believe that they’re
Gonna get away for the summer
But you and I, we live and die
The world’s still spinning round
We don’t know why
Why, why, why, why

How many special people change
How many lives are living strange
Where were you while we were getting high?
We were getting high
We were getting high
We were getting high
We were getting high

Let Your Love Grow Tall – Passion Pit

Aku sedang memutar album Passion Pit favoritku; Manners alias album pertama Passion Pit. Lagu lain dari album ini yang tidak bosan-bosannya ku dengarkan dan ku sukai liriknya adalah Seaweed, The Reeling, Swimming in The Floods, Sleepyhead dan lagu di bawah ini, Let Your Love Grows Tall. 

Tumbuhkan, tumbuhkan cinta! Jangan sampai layu kalau kata Michael dkk! Tapi mau menumbuhkan cinta setinggi apa katanya? Setinggi rerumputan di padang rumput? Setinggi bukit pasir di tepi pantai? Setinggi gedung-gedung di kota? Setinggi anakmu  yang ada di lantai?

In pastures blue and green
I’ll follow you and you’ll follow me

My fabrics mystery

I’ll wave your loyalty in the freezing

Breeze so desperately
And another one comes down

And another one comes down

And another one comes down
I think I see my life

He bows all slyly and gentle-like

He’s never had the right

I’ve never lived without

His sad and jealous eyes
And another one comes down

And another one comes down

And another one comes down
They’d say

Let your love grow tall

Let your love grow tall
Tall as the grass in the meadow?

Or the dunes on the shore?

Like the buildings in the city?

And your children on the floor?
Like the darkness in the forest?

Like my frightened worried eyes?

Or the roots in the soil?

Are skies telling lies?
But it’s the thought that counts

Quiet minds don’t know their worth

They know what to do

So I’ll pray for them and I’ll pray for you

Till my face turns blue
And another one comes down

And another one comes down

And another one comes down
They’d say

Let your love grow tall

Let your love grow tall
Tall as the grass in the meadow?

Or the dunes on the shore?

Like the buildings in the city?

And your children on the floor?
Like the darkness in the forest?

Like my frightened worried eyes?

Or the roots in the soil?

Are skies telling lies?

The Mystical Mathis

The Twelfth of Never – Johhny Mathis

You ask me how much I need you, must I explain

I need you, oh my darling, like roses need rain

You ask how long I’ll love you, I’ll tell you true

Until the Twelfth of Never, I’ll still be loving you

Hold me close, never let me go

Hold me close, melt my heart like April snow

I’ll love you ’til the bluebells forget to bloom

I’ll love you ’til the clover has lost its perfume

I’ll love you ’til the poets run out of rhyme

Until the Twelfth of Never and that’s a long, long time
Until the Twelfth of Never and that’s a long, long time

Perkenalan aku sama Johnny Mathis berasal dari film Silver Lining Playbook, pas si Bradley Cooper lagi nari ama Jennifer Lawrence mengalunlah lagu “Misty” nya Johnny Mathis dan ibaratnya jatuh cinta pada pandangan pertama (or should I called jatuh cinta pada pendengaran pertama?) aku langsung suka banget sama “Misty”. Malah kadang-kadang hati jadi suka ikutan misty kalo dengerin lagu ini (lebay tapi ini beneran). 

Dan ini, di saat aku lagi buntu banget nulis advertorial (emang ga punya jiwa jualan banget anaknya huhu) aku dengerin greatest compilation of Johnny Mathis dan denger lagu berjudul Twelfth of Never itu. And suddenly I feel lonely, idk why. Itu lagu romantis banget tapi rasanya surreaaaaaal banget, seakan-akan si Om Johnny nyanyinya sambil ngekhayal di siang bolong.

Btw gara-gara dengerin greatest compilation ini jadi tau kalo ternyata Johnny Mathislah yang pertama kali bawain Unbreak My Heart yang kesohor dibawain sama Toni Braxton dan ternyata doi jugalah yang nyanyiin Feelings yang dicover ama Kasino Warkop.



Both Sides Now – Joni Mitchell

Rows and flows of angel hair 
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere, 
I’ve looked at clouds that way.

But now they only block the sun, 
They rain and they snow on everyone
So many things I would have done, 
But clouds got in my way.

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels, 
The dizzy dancing way that you feel
As every fairy tale comes real, 
I’ve looked at love that way. 

But now it’s just another show, 
You leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know, 
Don’t give yourself away. 

I’ve looked at love from both sides now 
From give and take and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud, 
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, 
I’ve looked at life that way.

Oh but now old friends they’re acting strange, 
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained 
In living every day.

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

I’ve looked at life from both sides now 
From up and down, and still somehow 
It’s life’s illusions I recall 
I really don’t know life at all

It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life
I really don’t know life at all

Down – Suede

All the people in your life say you’re down
And the strangers in the night say you’re down
And the loonies on the right say you’re down and you’re down
And the ambulances sigh that you’re down
And the traffic speeding by says you’re down
And the people in your life say you’re down and you’re down
Hey you chase the day away
Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away
And there’s a sadness in your style
And there’s a blankness in your smile
And the people in the park say you’re down
And the strangers in the dark say you’re down
And the pissheads in the bars say you’re down
And the audiences cry that you’re down
And the ambulances sigh that you’re down
And the boyfriends in your life say you’re down and you’re down
Hey you chase the day away
Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away
And there’s a sadness in your style
And there’s a blankness in your smile
Hey you chase the day away
Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away
And there’s a sadness in your style
And there’s a madness in your smile
