You Were There

Lagu ini pertama kali saya dengar di radio Sonora waktu jaman SMA. Tapi dari dulu saya nggak pernah berhasil dapat judulnya ataupun penyanyinya siapa. Kalau tiba-tiba mendengar lagi di radio, biasanya sudah di tengah lagu, dan setelah lagunya habis, si penyiar nggak bilang, “Ya, itu tadi sebuah lagu berjudul XXX dari YYY”. Nah, beberapa hari yang lalu saya mendengar lagi lagu ini diputar di RaseFM dan kali ini saya dapat judulnya. Ternyata liriknya bagus juga 🙂

You Were There – Southern Sons

I guess you’ve heard
I guess you know
In time I’d have told you
But I guess I’m too slow
It’s not overly romantic
But I know that is real
I hope you don’t mind if I say what I feel
It’s like I’m in somebody else’s dream
This could not be happening to me

But you were there
You were everything I’d never seen
You woke me up from this long and endless sleep
I was alone
I open my eyes and you were there

Don’t be alarmed
No, don’t be concerned
I don’t want to change things
Leave them just as they were
I mean nothing’s really different
It’s me who feel strange
I’m always lost for words when someone mentioned you name
I know that I’ll get over this for sure
I’m not the type of dream there could be more

Can I take your smile home with me
All the magic in you hands

The rain has stopped
The storm has passed
Look at all the colors
Now the sun is here at last
I supposed that you’ll be leaving
But I want you to know
Part of you stays with even after you go
Like an actor playing someone else’s scene
This could not be happening to me
