Forbidden… Forbidden…

Listen to this song for the first time this morning, and I fell in love instantly… judulnya ‘Water’, ditulis, digubah, dan dinyanyikan oleh FRAU herself. Sudah lama mendengarkan lagu-lagu FRAU sebenarnya, tapi tak pernah benar-benar jatuh cinta atau sangat menyukai lagunya. But this one… hmm… this one’s different🙂

Listen it by yourself… (btw, sepertinya ini bukan video klip aslinya FRAU, but the animation’s also good!)

Anyway, FRAU is a 24 year old girl from Yogyakarta yang punya talenta luar biasa. Nama aslinya Leilani Hermiasih. She’s a singer, songwriter, and pianist.

Dan lalu, kebiasaan saya kalo nemu lagu yang seketika cocok di telinga adalah mencari liriknya. Liriknya, for me personally, gak kalah makjleb. Menurut saya, it’s about someone who can’t do what they really want in life. Dia (dalam lagu ini) melihat kawannya sudah membentangkan sayap, melebarkan layar, dan siap terbang atau berlayar. Tapi dia… terlarang untuk itu. Ini liriknya…

“Endure my heart, ensure your mind
You’re full of plans, and sure to fly
I give you warmth, you tell me tales
We’d exchange lives, but then they’d say…
Forbidden… Forbidden… Forbidden…

Your waves ride high, while mine are low
You head to sea, you’re sailing free
I’m living fate, I will not roam
I don’t need games, I won’t reel tides
Forbidden… Forbidden… Forbidden…

Happiness doesn’t take its time to judge
Who should get its taste
Water flows in us as our souls are filled with joy
And tears in our own ways

Your waves ride high, while mine are low
You’re full of plans, and sure to fly
I’m living fate, I will not roam
We’d exchange lives, but then they’d cry…
Forbidden… Forbidden… Forbidden…” (taken from songlyrics.com)

For a second I think this song really suit me (or the younger me). Bagaimana jadinya jika mimpi kalian menjadi terlarang? Saya pernah ingin ‘lari’ dari rumah ‘hanya’ untuk mengejar mimpi yang dianggap tak valid oleh orang-orang terdekat itu. But I am younger back then and don’t wanna disappoint my parents. So I never run away.

But now, I’m just too old to obey that ‘forbidden’ cry anymore. Time to fly, no time to waste, I’m already late…
