Exodus & October

Lagu-lagu Evanescence biasanya seram dan suram. Tapi bagi saya terasa sekali bahwa lagu-lagunya dinyanyikan dengan penuh perasaan. Ini yang membuat saya mudah menyukai lagu-lagu dari Amy Lee dkk.

Berikut dua lagu lama, dari album Evanescence EP tahun ’98. Not about love it is. Juga bukan tentang selingkuh (Haha… emang lagu-lagu dari band dan penyanyi yang konon lagi ngetop di Indonesia? Selingkuh lah, pacar dua lah, gak tahan ngeliat cewek cakep lah… Tahpapa!).

Tentang hasil dari pergulatan pemikiran lah, kalau boleh saya interpretasikan begitu. Yang pertama, mencari ketenangan dalam kegelapan.

EP

Exodus

My black backpack stuffed with broken dreams
20 bucks should get me through the week
Never said a word of discontentment
Fought it a thousand times but now I’m leaving home

Here in the shadow
I’m safe
I’m free
I’ve nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don’t belong

Two months pass by and it’s getting cold
I know I’m not lost
I’m just alone

But I won’t cry
I won’t give up
I can’t go back now
Waking up is knowing who you really are

Here in the shadow
I’m safe
I’m free
I’ve nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don’t belong

Here in the shadow
I’m safe
I’m free
I’ve nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where all along

Show me the shadow where true meaning lies
So much more dismay in empty eyes

Yang kedua, terasa seperti kebalikan dari lagu pertama. Menyerahkan diri pada “sesuatu yang lebih kuat namun selama ini diabaikan”.

October

I can’t run anymore
I fall before you
Here I am
I have nothing left

Though I’ve try to forget
You’re all that I am
Take me home
I’m through fighting it

Broken …
Lifeless …
I give up
You’re my only strength

Without you
I can’t go on
Anymore
Ever again

My only hope (all the times I’ve tried to run)
My only peace (too walk away from you)
My only joy
My only strength (I fall into your abandoning grace)

My only power
My only life (and love is where I am)
My only love

I can’t run anymore
I give myself to you
I’m sorry
I’m sorry

In all my bitterness
I ignored
All thats real and true
All I need is you

When night falls on me
I’ll not close my eyes
I’m too alive
And you’re too strong

I can’t lie anymore
I fall down before you
I’m sorry
I’m sorry

My only hope (all the times I’ve tried to run)
My only peace (too walk away from you)
My only joy
My only strength (I fall into your abandoning grace)

My only power
My only life (and love is where I am)
My only love

Constantly ignoring
The pain consuming me
But this time it’s cut too deep
I’ll never stray again

My only hope (all the times I’ve tried to run)
My only peace (too walk away from you)
My only joy
My only strength (I fall into your abandoning grace)

My only power
My only life (and love is where I am)
My only love
