Single of the Day: OneRepublic – Something I Need 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Dalam dominasi Ryan Tedder, jarang keluar pujian kepada member One Republic yang lain atas jerih payah mereka mengantarkan semangat lewat karya-karya yang mereka hasilkan. Meskipun Ryan sebagai mastermind-nya, tapi eksekusi yang dilakukan tetaplah bersama. Keapikan yang mereka sama-sama hadirkan itu termasuk ‘Something I Need‘, single paling anyar dari album ketiga mereka, “Native”.

We only die once, I wanna die with you
Agak gila bagaimana cara kerja musisi membolak-balikkan kata dalam kalimat sehingga muncul sesuatu seperti di atas. It’s right, it’s logical, but somehow still so hard to accept. Yang lebih gila lagi adalah bagaimana kalimat tersebut diterjemahkan kepada sebuah momentum romantisme. Gila, bukan?!

Secara pribadi, saya lebih menyukai lagu ini dibanding ‘Counting Stars’. Ia lebih mudah dinikmati dengan musik yang cenderung lebih santai, ketimbang ‘CS’ yang meledak-ledak. Santai tapi tidak membosankan. Chorus dipasung dalam tempo berbeda dengan beat yang lebih rapat dan iring-iringan vokal yang mengharamkan terbentuknya perasaa terlena. Disinilah peran keseluruhan anggota band terasa. Meskipun Ryan yang bervisi, namun Zach Filkins, Drew Brown, Eddie Fisher, dan Brent Kutzle memiliki pengaruh dalam mengendalikan musik dalam porsi masing-masing. Itu yang membuat One Republic adalah one band, bukan one man band.

LYRIC
I had a dream the other night
About how we only get one life
Woke me up right after two
Stayed awake and stared at you
So I wouldn’t lose my mind

And I had the week that came from hell
And yes I know that you can tell
But you’re like the net under the ledge
But I go flying off the edge
You go flying off as well

And if you only die once I wanna die with
You got something I need
In this world full of people there’s one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there’s one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

Last night I think I drank too much
Call it our temporary crutch
With broken words I tried to say
Honey don’t you be afraid
If we got nothing we got us (Yeah)

And if you only die once I wanna die with
You got something I need
In this world full of people there’s one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there’s one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

I know that we’re not the same
But I’m so damn glad that we made it
To this time, this time, now

You got something I need
Yeah in this world full of people there’s one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (Yeah)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there’s one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there’s one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

If we only die once I wanna die with
If we only live once I wanna live with you
