The Lover After Me

Bayangkan saat kamu berada di atas sebuah tebing, memandangi kaki langit yang bersatu dengan lautan. Cerah jingganya menerpa mata, menarik kedua tangan untuk terangkat.
Debur ombaknya bergemuruh, bersamaan dengan kepak sayap burung-burung senja.
Namun hatimu tidak disana, dibawa angin pada sebuah kenangan masa lalu yang indah, yang mungkin pernah ada di tempat itu.

Sebuah lagu tentang masa lalu, saat sesuatu yang pernah dekat tiba-tiba menjauh dan hilang. Dan mirisnya, semua hal yang kita temui menyebut tentang dia, selalu, kemana pun kita pergi.


Hanya untuk merayakan bertemunya lagu ini, terimakasih untuk seorang teman yang bersedia mencarikannya.

Lagunya ada disini, coba dengarkan dan resapi, dan apakah.... terasa?


"The Lover After Me"

Here I go again I promised myself
I wouldn't think of you today
It's been seven months and counting
You've moved on
I still feel exactly the same
It's just that everywhere I go
all the buildings know your name
Like photographs and memories of love
Steel and granite reminders
The city calls your name and I can't move on

Ever since you've been gone
The lights go out the same
The only difference is
You call another name
To your love
To your lover now
To your love
The lover after me

Am I all alone in the universe?
There's no love on these streets
I have given mine away to a world that didn't want it anyway
So this is my new freedom
It's funny
I don't remember being chained
But nothing seems to make sense anymore
Without you I'm always twenty minutes late

Ever since you've been gone
The lights go out the same
The only difference is
You call another name
To your love
To your lover now
To your love
The lover after me

And time goes by so slowly
The nights are cold and lonely
I shouldn't be holding on
But I'm still holding on for you

Here I go again
I promised myself I wouldn't think of you today
But I'm standing at your doorway
I'm calling out your name because I can't move on

Ever since you've been gone
The lights go out the same
The only difference is
You call another name
To your love
To your lover now
To your love
The lover after me
