I’m Sorry

leave a comment »

It's cold here in the city
It always seems that way
And I've been thinking about you almost everyday
Thinking about the good times
Thinking about the rain
Thinking about how bad it feels alone again

I'm sorry for the way things are in China
I'm sorry things ain't what they used to be
But more than anything else
I'm sorry for myself
'Cause you're not here with me

Our friends all ask about you
I say you're doing fine
And I expect to hear from you almost anytime
But they all know I'm crying
And I can't sleep at night
They all know I'm dying down deep inside

I'm sorry for all the lies I told you
I'm sorry for the things I didn't say
But more than anything else
I'm sorry for myself
I can't believe you went away

[break]

I'm sorry if I took some things for granted
I'm sorry for the chains I put on you
But more than anything else
I'm sorry for myself
For living without you

It's cold here in the city
It always seems that way
And I've been thinking about you almost everyday

Wait for Sleep

with 2 comments

Lagunya siapa hayo?

    Standing by the window
    Eyes upon the moon
    Hoping that the memory will leave her spirit soon
    She shuts the doors and lights
    And lays her body on the bed
    Where images and words are running deep
    She has too much pride to pull the sheets above her head
    So quietly she lays and waits for sleep

    She stares at the ceiling
    And tries not to think
    And pictures the chain
    She’s been trying to link again
    But the feeling is gone

    And water can’t cover her memory
    And ashes can’t answer her pain
    God give me the power to take breath from a breeze
    And call life from a cold metal frame

    In with the ashes
    Or up with the smoke from the fire
    With wings up in heaven
    Or here, lying in bed
    Palm of her hand to my head
    Now and forever curled in my heart
    And the heart of the world

Teru teru bozu

with 3 comments

Hujan yang hampir tiap hari membuat saya merindukan sinar mentari. Apa pasal, padahal di kampung saya (LAmongan sana), si hujan masih ditunggu-tunggu kedatangannya? Perkaranya sepele sebenarnya: cucian saya tak kunjung kering plus ketika humidity+suhu mencapai level tertentu hidung saya mampet. D’oh! Lama-lama nanti saya tergoda ikut-ikutan bikin teru-teru bozu sebagai jimat pengusir hujan, kemudian ikut-ikutan menyanyikan lagu di bawah ini. Hmm, I hope not!

Jepang:
てるてるぼうず、てるぼうず
明日天気にしておくれ
いつかの夢の空のように
晴れたら金の鈴あげよ
Romawi:
Teru-teru-bōzu, teru bōzu
Ashita tenki ni shite o-kure
Itsuka no yume no sora no yō ni
Haretara kin no suzu ageyo
Artinya:
Teru-teru-bozu, teru bozu
Do make tomorrow a sunny day
Like the sky in a dream sometime
If it’s sunny I’ll give you a golden bell
 
てるてるぼうず、てるぼうず
明日天気にしておくれ
私の願いを聞いたなら
甘いお酒をたんと飲ましょ
Teru-teru-bōzu, teru bōzu
Ashita tenki ni shite o-kure
Watashi no negai wo kiita nara
Amai o-sake wo tanto nomasho
Teru-teru-bozu, teru bozu
Do make tomorrow a sunny day
If you make my wish come true
We’ll drink lots of sweet rice wine
 
てるてるぼうず、てるぼうず
明日天気にしておくれ
もしも曇って泣いてたら
そなたの首をちょんと切るぞ
Teru-teru-bōzu, teru bōzu
Ashita tenki ni shite o-kure
Moshi mo kumotte naitetara
Sonata no kubi wo chon to kiru zo
Teru-teru-bozu, teru bozu
Do make tomorrow a sunny day
But if it’s cloudy and you are crying (i.e. it’s raining)
Then I shall snip your head off

 

Inilah tampang jimat pengusir hujan itu (hasil modifikasi):
Tampang lain
