Million Years Ago

Sudah hari ke-17 di bulan Januari. Detik bergulir cepat sekali. Lagu di komputerku masih sama sejak tanggal pertama, “Million Years Ago”. Lagu ini digubah dan dinyanyikan oleh Adele. Namun, konon sangat mirip dengan lagunya Ahmet Kaya yang berjudul Acilara Tutunmak, penyanyi dari Turki. Ahmet menciptakan lagu ini jauh lebih duluan. Jadi, Adele dianggap plagiat. Mau googling kapan tahun pastinya lagu Ahmet diciptakan kok malas. Haha.

Aku tahu lagu ini berawal dari percakapan dengan seseorang di Turki. Lalu, ini menjadi lagu kebangsaanku di bulan ini. :p

Ini versi Ahmet Kaya:

Ini versi Acoustic cover oleh Emir

Ini versi Violin Cover. Awas lirikan masnya! Haha.

Ini liriknya:

I only wanted to have fun
Learning to fly…
Learning to run…
I let my heart decide the way
When I was young…
Deep down I must have always known
That is would be inevitable
To earn my stripes I’d have to pay!
And bear my soul

I know I’m not the only one
Who regrets the things they’ve done
Sometimes I just feel it’s only me
Who can’t stand the reflection that they see
I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky, not just the floor

I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry
I miss the air, I miss my friends
I miss my mother; I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago
When I walk around all of the streets
Where I grew up and found my feet
They can’t look me in the eye
It’s like they’re scared of me
I try to think of things to say
Like a joke or a memory
But they don’t recognize me now
In the light of day…

I know I’m not the only one
Who regrets the things they’ve done
Sometimes I just feel it’s only me
Who never became who they thought they’d be
I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky, not just the floor
I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry
I miss the air, I miss my friends
I miss my mother, I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago

A million years ago!
