(Lyric) Stay Alive by Jose Gonzales

The struggle is real!

Beberapa kali aku mendengar kalimat ini. Pernakah kalian mendengarnya juga? Ketika menghadapi sesuatu yang sulit, bermasalah dengan seseorang atau sesuatu yang menghambat perjalanan kita bahkan ketika kita bergolak dengan diri sendiri, dan kita tengah berjuang (susah payah) dari situasi sulit ke situasi yang lebih baik, kalimat ini rasa-rasanya cocok sekali untuk menggambarkan kondisi kita saat itu.

Yea, mungkin lagu ini bisa mengiringi kita ketika that struggle (esp. of life) is real. Isinya mengajak kita agar tetap semangat dan bertahan (hidup). Lagu ini pertama kali aku dengar ketika menonton film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Iya, film yang pemeran utamanya Ben Stiller. Ini film memang gak sebercanda film Stiller lainnya. Di film ini dia lebih serius. Nice to watch! :)

Haha, okay, paragraf di atas agak melantur, ya. Malah nyerempet ke filmnya. Anyway, dari beberapa lagu lain yang menjadi soundtract film ini, aku lebih suka dengan yang Stay Alive ini. Penyanyinya sendiri bernama Jose Gonzales. Aku tidak banyak tahu tentang lagu Gonzales yang lain. Dan memang kalau aku suka lagu, lebih ke arah random dan biasanya lebih ke meaning lagu itu sendiri.  

Oke fellas, silakan cek lagunya via youtube di sini and as usual, here is its lyric. Enjoy! :)


There's a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don't move and the colors don't fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone lean


Sometimes there's things a man cannot know
Gears won't turn and the leaves won't grow
There's no place to run and no gasoline
Engine won't turn
And the train won't leave

 
Engines won't turn and the train won't leave

 
I will stay with you tonight
Hold you close 'til the morning light
In the morning watch a new day rise
We'll do whatever just to stay alive
We'll do whatever just to stay alive

 
Well the way I feel is the way I write
It isn't like the thoughts of the man who lies
There is a truth and it's on our side
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes


Look into the sun as the new days rise

 
And I will wait for you tonight
You're here forever and you're by my side
I've been waiting all my life
To feel your heart as it's keeping time
We'll do whatever just to stay alive

 
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes


Look into the sun as the new days rise
There's a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don't move and the colors don't fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone lean

 
But there is a truth and it's on our side
Dawn is coming open your eyes
Look into the sun as a new days rise
