Nothing More Than That—The Paper Kites

Sweet December’s coming ’round
The city’s big but all I’ve found
Is you’re the truest thing in this town
And I want you now
Shadows from the streetlight shades
Watching every word you say
Never seen you look that way
And I want you now
Nothing more than that
Dropped the needle, closed your eyes
Listened like you’d almost died
All your love in an old record pile
And I want you now
Spinning like a turning wheel
Looking like the way I feel
You can keep all that you steal
Cause I want you now
Nothing more than that


Time for A Change—Unknown Neighbour

Saya pertama kali mendengarkan lagu yang dibawakan oleh band indie Unknown Neighbour yang berjudul Time for A Change ini saat salah satu kanal YouTube yang bertajuk “SleepMusic” muncul di beranda YouTube saya—karena saya subscribed kanal yang berisikan lagu indie/folk, indie/rock, dan sebagainya tersebut. Nah, berikut adalah lirik lagu Time for A Change.

I feel so tired of things half done
All the years I’ve lived my life on the run
I waste so much time on my nagging doubts
I’ve forgotten how to see the sun between the clouds
All the time you’ve told me how a man must be
And I had no idea what it means to be free
All the lonely hours I’ve waited to see
Until I understood that it’s all up to me
It’s time for a change to get beyond my range
No one keeps me here
It’s time for a change to get beyond my range
I wanna be free from fear
So I will lay down all my needless pride
And appreciate the traits that I used to hide
But I try to talk less and say more this time
And I stop to walk on your way so I’ll find mine
It’s time for a change to get beyond my range
No one keeps me here
It’s time for a change to get beyond my range
I wanna be free from fear
I feel so tired of things half done
I don’t wanna live a life on the run


Oceans—Tigers in The Sky
Nah, kalau lagu yang berjudul Oceans karya Tigers in The Sky ini saya pertama kali mendengarnya dari videonya Mas Luthfi Pradita di YouTube.

My how lovely, I adore you
From rocky mountains to deep blue oceans
Only if you say you love me
I’ll run the rivers to the tress
Run to you
Love me tender, love me good
I have only been misunderstood
In the winter I feel lucky
Just to have you thinking of me
Maybe someday on a Sunday
I’ll be telling you, I’d be telling you


Youth—Daughter

Shadows settle on the place, that you left
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness
Destroy the middle, it’s a waste of time
From the perfect start to the finish line
And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones
‘Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong
We are the reckless
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we’ll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there
And if you’re still bleeding, you’re the lucky ones
‘Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone
We’re setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home
It was a flood that wrecked this
And you caused it
Well I’ve lost it all, I’m just a silouhette
A lifeless face that you’ll soon forget
My eyes are damp from the words you left
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest
And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one
‘Cause most of us are bitter over someone
Setting fire to our insides for fun
To distract our hearts from ever missing them
But I’m forever missing him
And you caused it


All of Them Dreams—Tom Rosenthal

If you’re having troubles babe hit them with beams
You’ve got 99 problems and all of them dreams
Life will give you something like an ebb or a flow
Stare them right in the eyes, babe, and give it a go
Oh don’t you shy away your heart beats the day
Oh time is not alone with you
