Two Birds

“Two Birds”

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away
And the other
Watches him close
From that wire
He says he wants to as well
But he is a liar

I’ll believe it all
There’s nothing I won’t understand
I’ll believe it all
I won’t let go of your hand

Two birds on a wire
One says come on
And the other says
I’m tired
The sky is overcast
And I’m silent
One more or one less
Nobody’s worried

I’ll believe it all
There’s nothing I won’t understand
I’ll believe it all
I won’t let go of your hand

Two birds of a feather
Say that they’re always
Gonna stay together
But one’s never goin’ to
Let go of that wire
He says that he will
But he’s just a liar

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away
And the other
Watches him close
From that wire
He says he wants to as well
But he is a liar

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away
And the other

PS: Two Birds written by Regina Spektor on her album “Far” (2009).

Untuk engkau yang disana, jika kau berpikir aku sedang berlari, engkau salah
Aku berjalan, berjalan mengikuti kata hatiku menuju asaku
Kau tidak perlu mengejarku, dan kau tidak perlu menungguku
Yang perlu kau lakukan hanya sedikit melihat kiri dan kananmu
Karena mungkin aku sedang berjalan menuju arah yang sama denganmu
Hanya kau tidak menyadarinya, karena kau sibuk mencemaskan langkahmu dengan pikiran aku akan berlalu
Ya aku tidak sedang berlari, hanya berjalan, sekali lagi aku hanya berjalan
Selama ini kau terlalu cemas, iya terlalu cemas
Kau terlalu sibuk memandang kedepan karena takut tertinggal karena berpikir aku berlalu
Aku tidak sehebat itu, karena aku tidak akan mampu selalu berlari

Lihatlah kesampingmu, lalu gapai tanganku
Genggam tanganku, tapi jangan terlalu erat, karena aku ingin beriringan, bukan digiring
Jika lelah menghampiri, kita hanya perlu memperlambat langkah, bukan berhenti
Yakinlah, bersama kita akan mampu berlari
asal kau yakin aku akan selalu beriringan denganmu, disampingmu

Whenever friends ask me about “what is the saddest thing in this world?” i`ll answer two things:
1. Loosing someone you love (parents, friends, wife or husband)
2. Seeing two people in love but can’t be together (in case, its not for cheesy love story, but adult love-relationship)
Please please don’t be hesitate of your love.
If you really love her, tell her ” i wanna make it with you, forever”.
As simple as that.
I’ll believe it all
There’s nothing I won’t understand
I’ll believe it all
I won’t let go of your hand
