Mystery

Mystery, atau dalam bahasa Indonesianya adalah mistery (cuman beda huruf ‘i’ dan huruf ‘y’ di abjad keduanya. rempong yah?). Gue yakin dari lo, lo, dan lo semua gak ada yang tahu lagu ini. Gue jamin 100% deh. Kalau ada yang tahu palingan cuman emak atau bapak lo doang. Kalau ada anak remaja gahol zaman sekarang yang tahu lagu ini berarti selera musik dia lagu-lagu jadul yang ketinggalan zaman (padahal gue sendiri ajah gak tau lagu ini dirilis kapan #plak).

Oke. Back to topic.  ‘Mystery’ merupakan sebuah judul lagu (jangan pernah beranggapan gue lagi ngebahas tentang kuda lautnya Spongebob yang bernama sama) yang dinyanyikan oleh Indigo Girls. Entah kenapa, gue jadi suka sama lagu ini karena gue habis baca novel “Perahu Kertas” karya Dee atau Dewi Lestari, yang di dalam novelnya ngebahas tentang lagu ini. Dan di dalam lagu ini, ada salah satu liriknya yang gue suka dan lagi-lagi gara-gara novel itu. Gue gak kreatif ya? Emang.

Jadi, daripada semakin lama gue semakin ngebacot gak jelas, langsung ajah lirik lagunya~

Indigo Girls – Mystery

Each time you’d pull down the driveway
I wasn’t sure when i would see you again
Yours was a twisted, blind sided highway
No matter which road you took then

Oh you set up your place in my thoughts
Moved in and made my thinking crowded
Now we’re out in the back with the barking dogs
My heart the red sun,
Your heart the moon clouded

I could go crazy on a night like tonight
When summer’s beginning to give up her fight
And every thought’s a possibility
And the voices are heard, but nothing is seen
Why do you spend this time with me?
Maybe an equal mystery

So what is love then, is it dictated or chosen?
Does it sing like the hymns of 1000 years
Or is it just pop emotion
(Handed down and made by hand)

And if it ever was there, and it left
Does it mean it was never true?
And to exist it must elude
Is that why i think these things of you?

I could go crazy on a night like tonight
When summer’s beginning to give up her fight
And every thought’s a possibility
And the voices are heard, but nothing is seen
Why do you spend this time with me?
May be an equal mystery

Oh, but you like the taste of danger
It shines like sugar on your lips
And you like to stand in the line of fire
Just to show you can shoot straight from you hip
There must be a 1000 things you would die for
I can hardly think of two
But not everything is better spoken aloud
Not when i’m talking to you

Oh, the pirate gets the ship and the girl tonight
Breaks a bottle to christen her
Basking in the exploits of her thief
She’s a very good listener

Maybe that’s all that we need
Is to meet in the middle of impossibility
We’re standing at opposite poles
Equal partners in a mystery
(Handed down and made by hand)

We’re standing at opposite poles
Equal partners in a mystery
