Yellowcard – Telescope

Posting sebelumnya saya membahas tentang album terbaru Yellowcard yang berjudul Southern Air. Posting kali ini saya akan menulis salah satu lagu yang ada dalam album tersebut yang berjudul Telescope.Alasan kenapa saya memposting lagu ini adalah makna lagu tersebut yang sepertinya cukup dalam bagi personil Yellowcard terutama sang vokalis Ryan Key. Salah satu komentar di situs Youtube mengatakan bahwa lagu ini didedikasikan untuk tante dari Ryan Key, yaitu Stephanie yang meninggal karena kanker.

Awalnya mendengar pertama kali lagu ini sih masih biasa saja, namun untuk kedua dan ketiga kalinya saya mulai menyukai dan setelah membaca liriknya saya turut menitikkan air mata. Saya bold dan italic bagian lirik yang menyentuh buat saya, buat saya loh yah tidak tahu kalau untuk anda. Selamat mendengarkanšŸ˜€

I’ve been here a while
Staring at this screen wondering what I’ll write
Things I can’t explain
But should’ve tried to say when I had the time

You were inspiration
When no one else believed
You showed me strength in my skin
That no one else could see

Let’s just keep driving on
All the stars jumping in through the windows
Let’s go where we belong
Headed fast as we can for the unknown

I remember how
Like a telescope you could always find
(You could always find)
Something worth a wish
You said every day’s a gift and we’ll be alright
(We’ll be alright)

And something took you from me
I can’t understand why
But wherever you’re resting
(I’m carrying)
I’m carrying your line

Let’s just keep driving on
All the stars jumping in through the windows
Let’s go where we belong
Headed fast as we can for the unknown

You can stay there
And it’s not fair
Those were the days when we laughed all the while
When the fireflies
Lit up our skies
Those were the nights when the world made us smile

My only hope
You’re my telescope
My only hope
You’re my telescope
My only hope
You’re my telescope
My only hope
You’re my telescope

(Let’s just keep driving on)
(Let’s go where we belong)

Let’s just keep driving on
All the stars jumping in through the windows
Let’s go where we belong
Headed fast as we can for the unknown

You can stay there
And it’s not fair
Those were the days when we laughed all the while
When the fireflies
Lit up our skies
Those were the nights when the world made us smile

My only hope
You’re my telescope
(My only hope
You’re my telescope)
My only hope
You’re my telescope
(My only hope)

My only hope
You’re my telescope
