A Song for Muthia

Dunia ini terasa lebih bermakna berkat lagu. Salah satu lagu yang membuat saya tersadar adalah lagunya Sting, My Funny Friend and Me. Lagu ini original sountrack film animasi Emperor's New Groove. Sting menciptakan lagu ini persis seperti kisah film tersebut. Tentang seseorang bernama Kuzco yang menyebalkan, sombong, merasa pintar sendiri, dan akhirnya dibenci orang sekitarnya. Namun seorang kenalannya bernama Pacha tetap menemaninya, bersabar memahaminya, menghadapinya, dan mengajarinya menjadi orang yang lebih baik. Kuzco sadar kesombongannya selama ini. Ia pun merasa beruntung sekali masih memiliki Pacha sebagai teman sejatinya.

Lirik lagu Sting dari kisah ini mengingatkan saya, bahwa dulu di saat semua teman-teman saya meninggalkan saya karena kesalahan saya, ada satu yang tetap tinggal, memahami, dan mengajari saya dengan kesabarannya. Sekarang saya menjadi orang yang lebih baik berkatnya. Terima kasih Muthia, lagu ini

In the quiet time of evening When the stars assume their patterns And the day has made his journey And we wondered just what happened To the life we knew before the world changed When not a thing I held was true But you were kind to me and you reminded me That the world is not my playground There are other things that matter And when a simple needs protecting My illusions all would shatter But you stayed in my corner The only world I know was upside down And now the world and me, we know you'll carry me

You see the patterns in the big sky Those constellations look like you and I Just like the patterns in the big sky We could be lost we could refuse to try But we made it through in the dark night Would those lucky guys turn out to be But that unusual blend of my funny friend and me

I'm not as clever as I thought I was I'm not the boy I used to be because You showed me something different, you showed me something pure I always seemed so certain but I was really never sure But you stayed and you called my name When others would have walked out on a lousy game And you could've made it through But your funny friend and me

You see the patterns in the big sky Those constellations look like you and I That tiny planet in a bigger guy I don't know whether I should laugh or cry Just like the patterns in the big sky We'll be together till the end is nigh Don't know the answer or the reason why We'll stick together till the day we die If I had to do this all a second time I won't complain or make a fuss When the angels sing that that unlikely blend Are those two funny friends That's us (':

PS: Maybe this is a late birthday gift from me, but again, happy birthday!
