Single of The Day: The Script – If You Could See Me Now 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Bicara tentang lagu pop rock dengan tema yang mendalam, band yang satu ini jelas menjadi salah satu juaranya. Meski The Script sepertinya belum lepas dari tema kehilangan orang terkasih yang menjadi inti dari single terakhirnya, Six Degrees of Separation. Terbukti, lagu teranyar mereka, If You Could See Me Now, masih berkutat dengan permasalahan yang sama meski dikemas dalam cara yang berbeda.

Dirilis pada 4 Maret lalu, single yang satu ini dengan lantang menyuarakan kepedihan personal para anggotanya, terutama sang gitaris Mark Sheehan dan vokalis Danny O’Donoghue—dimana keduanya turut berbagi verse dengan bernyanyi rap. Permainan piano membuka intronya, dengan dentum drum dan gitar menyusul kemudian. Permulaan lagu yang sudah berjalan intens dilanjutkan ke bagian chorus yang klimaks namun tidak meledak-ledak, dan saya rasa ini cukup pas dengan lagunya secara keseluruhan.

Secara nada dan instrumental, lagu ini tidak berbeda dari lagu The Script sebelumnya. Yang paling menonjol justru, selain dari rap Sheehan dan O’Donoghue yang mengisi lagu ini, adalah bagian liriknya. Perhatikan saja. Selain menarik untuk dibuat sing along, tiap bait pada lirik rapnya memilik irima yang enak dan menyimpan makna yang dalam. Sedih yang tidak menye, semua itu dihadirkan pada lagu ini.

Liriknya terasa sangat real, dan saya rasa semua orang yang membacanya bisa menghubungkan dirinya dengan lagu ini—karena berbeda dengan kisah romansa, hubungan sebuah keluarga adalah sesuatu yang begitu primordial bagi setiap manusia. Lagu ini ditulis dengan perasaan yang mendalam, kita jelas bisa merasakannya dari pernyataan I still look for your face in the crowd/Oh if you could see me now/Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow/Oh if you could see me now yang dilontarkan.

p style=”text-align: justify;”>Dengan semua kelebihan yang diungkapkan diatas, jelas lagu ini berpotensi menjadi chart-topper dan salah satu lagu yang akan sering diputar di radio-radio di seluruh dunia, seperti lagu mereka kebanyakan. But overall, it’s a nice song to reminds us all to make our parents proud with what we do, and to love them endlessly.

LYRIC
(Oh if you could see me now)

(Oh if you could see me now)

It was February 14 Valentines Day
The roses came but they took you away
Tattooed on my arm is a charm to disarm all the harm
Gotta keep myself calm but the truth is you’re gone
And I’ll never get to show you these songs
Dad you should see the tours that I’m on
I see you standing there next to Mom
Both singing along, yeah arm in arm
And there are days when I’m losing my faith
Because the man wasn’t good he was great
He’d say “Music was the home for your pain”
And explained I was young, he would say
Take that rage, put it on a page
Take that page to the stage
Blow the roof off the place
I’m trying to make you proud
Do everything you did
I hope you’re up there with God saying “That’s my kid!”

[Chorus:]
I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)

(Oh if you could see me now)

If you could see me now would you recognize me?
Would you pat me on the back or would you criticize me?
Would you follow every line on my tear-stained face
Put your hand on my heart that was cold
As the day you were taken away
I know it’s been a while but I can see you clear as day
Right now, I wish I could hear you say
I drink too much, and I smoke too much dutch
But if you can’t see me now that shit’s a must
You used to say I wont know a wind until it crossed me
Like I wont know real love ’til I’ve loved and I’ve lost it
So if you lost a sister, someone’s lost a mom
And if you lost a dad then someone’s lost a son
And they’re all missing out, yeah they’re all missing out
So if you get a second to look down on me now
Mom, Dad I’m just missing you now

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)

Oh, oh
Would you call me a saint or a sinner?
Would you love me a loser or winner?
Oh, oh
When I see my face in the mirror
We look so alike that it makes me shiver

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)
Yeah I’m just missing you now

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)

If you could see, you could see me now [x2]
