The Only Exception


When I was younger, I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart and I watched
As he tried to reassemble it

And my momma swore that
She would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I’d never sing of love if it does not exist

But darling, you are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception

Maybe I know, somewhere deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we’ve got to find other ways to make it alone
Or keep a straight face

And I’ve always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable distance
And up until now I had sworn to myself that I’m content with loneliness
Because none of it was ever worth the risk

But you are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception

I’ve got a tight grip on reality
But I can’t let go of what’s in front of me here
I know you’re leaving in the morning when you wake up
Leave me with some kind of proof, it’s not a dream, oh

But you are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception

And I’m on my way to believing
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing

It’s been almost two days, I let my body and soul listening to this enchanted song over and over and over and over. (>,<). And up until now, I have not find a way to get out from the spell.

Yes, it’s the chronic melancholic part of mine.

The reason why… berdasarkan analisis mendalam mengenai rasa-rasa yang ditimbulkan, akhirnya disini saya mencoba menerjemahkannya menjadi sesuatu yang (semoga) logis atau minimal membantu saya “muak” dan bisa lepas bebas. setidaknya dari keadaan diri saya yang melankolis kronis ini.

I won’t deny it, Lagu ini berhasil menjawab perasaan yang sudah cukup lama mengendap jauh di dalam diri saya. Perasaan takut untuk mampu percaya pada cinta yang bertahan dan menetap. Lagu ini romantis sangat menurut saya. I know how hard to at least admit someone as ‘the only exception’. Especially to someone who commit herself to the loneliness. No wonder, she keep spelling “you are the only exception” over and over in this song. I think it is necessary in order to assure herself and defeat the fear. And she is brave enough to finally take the way to believing. I wish someday i have enough courage  to do that, perhaps this is the main reason I keep listening to this song over and over.

Dan satu lagi, lagu ini mengingatkan saya akan cita-cita masa remaja saya. Menemukan seseorang yang hanya kepadanya, saya berani bertaruh, berani mengambil segala resiko kehilangan dan sakit hati mendalam karena mencintainya. (anjirrr…. super romantis lha ya). Tapi… mungkin karena itu saya menjadi penuh syarat menentukan kriteria orang tersebut. Ah… tapi yang sebenarnya yang saya inginkan hanyalah satu. Satu orang yang memampukan saya mengambil jalan itu. Yang berhasil meluruhkan semua tembok pertahanan diri saya seutuhnya. Satu orang, kepada siapa saya menujukan surat-surat cinta pertama saya. The owner of my happy thought, my dream, and for sure my heart. Seseorang, yang saya tahu sejak pertama kali kenal kata “cinta”, telah saya cari. Bahkan menuliskan ini semua pun sekarang masih belum cukup mengurangi rasa takut yang telah lama menjajah. But somehow I want him. More than words can explain.

I know how selfish I am. And I blame all the fairytales and the romantic novels, which put the idea  in my head. I don’t believe in love at the first sight or even the concept of the soulmate. But I do believe it took forever to really know what love is. And i want to begin the journey with you. Begin with the sparks between us, that makes me able to spell the mantra. Let’s hope the magic never fade away. At least, we won’t let it fade away.

I dedicated this for you, my dear. The only exception in my life. I don’t need you to be the best of all , just stay with me in my loneliness and let’s create our own happiness. just the two of us. Shall we?
