It’s been a while, don’t you think?
Yes, love songs still remind me of you.
At first, I couldn’t breathe whenever I realize that the songs that remind me of you will only remind you of someone else.
But you know what?
I think I’m starting to accept it as the way it is.
I hope I’m gonna be fine, like what you told me I should be.
Deru kendaraan di kiri kananku,
dan lampu jalan,
dirimu, tak pernah berhenti mengusik pikiranku sedetikpun.
—- 20:32 WIB, di sebuah jalan di sisi barat kota Jakarta.
5:53, hal yang sama tiap pagi.
Sebuah kereta yang akan membawaku kemana kau pernah berada.
Namun sayang, aku lupa bagaimana cara berjalan,
yang tinggal hanya keheningan pekat yang mengambang berat di udara.
I can’t tell
whether my hands are cold
or my world is freezing shut.
I cried myself to sleep last night.
Were you there smiling at what I said, a screen away?
Were you talking to someone else a screen away?
I could see a silhouette standing quietly next to you;
you were holding its hand.
Good night, wherever you are.
Sleep tight, rest well, wherever you are.
May the stars come down to cover you, and the sky keep you warm, and the Earth be your bed.
Let go of your worries. Know that you’re more than enough, you’ll always be more than enough.
Good night, sleep tight, wherever you are.
You know, you’ll always be
my first smile; the pale moon
glowing gently in my morning sky.
I think I like you, or maybe I don’t. But you’ve been my sole reason of happiness these days, the only thing keeping my mood soaring through the skies above; so perhaps, maybe, I kinda like you. I guess.
But just like a full moon lingering in the morning sky; even when the sun’s already shined so brightly, your gentle glow will still be the one thing that fully captures my attention.
…screw that, I like you. I like you a lot.
