Akhirnya aku menyerah. Menyerah dalam kelelahan. Lelah berperang. Lelah bermain. Lelah bertanya-tanya. Aku menyerah.

And Aubrey was her name,
A not so very ordinary girl or name.
But who’s to blame?
For a love that wouldn’t bloom
For the hearts that never played in tune.
Like a lovely melody that everyone can sing,
Take away the words that rhyme it doesn’t mean a thing.

Aku hanya ingin berdiam dan membiarkan arus membawaku kemanapun ia mau membawaku. Biarkan apapun terjadi padaku. Yang terburuk sekalipun.

And Aubrey was her name.
We tripped the light and danced together to the moon,
But where was June?
No it never came around.
If it did it never made a sound,
Maybe I was absent or was listening to fast,
Catching all the words, but then the meaning going past,

Menerima apa yang menjadi bagianku. Menikmati yang aku miliki. Hanya sedikit. Mungkin hampir tak ada. Tapi biarkan aku menikmati ketiadaan itu. Bahkan mungkin remah-remah, hanya tinggal sisa-sisa. Tapi itulah porsiku. Dan aku bahagia.

But God I miss the girl,
And I’d go a thousand times around the world just to be
Closer to her than to me.

Kalau sedikit kebahagiaan itu harus dibayar dengan berjuta-juta luka, maka aku akan membayarnya. Aku akan membayarnya lunas.

And Aubrey was her name,
I never knew her, but I loved her just the same,
I loved her name.
Wish that I had found the way
And the reasons that would make her stay.
I have learned to lead a life apart from all the rest.
If I can’t have the one I want, I’ll do without the best.

Hanya sedikit, tapi itu cukup. Karena aku tak pernah meminta banyak. Aku tak akan meminta banyak. Hampir tidak ada. Maka biarkan aku menikmati ketiadaan itu.

But how I miss the girl
And I’d go a million times around the world just to say
She had been mine for a day.

Dan aku berharap namamu adalah Aubrey. Karena aku jatuh cinta pada nama itu.
