Single of the Day: Colbie Caillat – Try 

Banyak orang yang suka drama. Akui saja, drama membuat irama dalam hidup. Kali ini, yang mencoba membuat dramanya sendiri adalah Colbie Caillat. Ia punya sebuah lagu yang sangat indah dan menyentuh, ‘Try‘ yang fokus pada inner beauty, sebuah isu yang sering dianggap bullsh*t karena tak kasat mata. Tapi tak mengapa. Selama tak berkesan menggurui, nilai yang dimiliki oleh lagu ini tak’kan jatuh sia-sia pada sebuah omong kosong.

Dramatis lagu ini terletak pada bagian verse, dimana Colbie membangun intensitas di dalamnya. Eksekusi lirik dalam melodi yang rapat dirunut untuk ditutup dengan sebuah pernyataan yang menohok. “Put your make up on//Get your nails done//Curl your hair//Run the extra mile//Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?” hingga akhirnya pernyataan yang sejatinya adalah untuk diri sendiri dalam paduan lirik yang bertentangan dari apa yang terpapar di awal: “Take your make up off//Let your hair down//Take a breath//Look into the mirror, at yourself//Don’t you like you?//Cause I like you“.

Meskipun dibentuk dalam kalimat negatif, “you don’t have to try” bukanlah merupakan larangan yang keras. Lebih kepada bisikan, himbauan, seruan untuk menambah harga diri pribadi. Sentuhan musik akustik yang melatari untaian lirik tersebut memaksimalkan sentuhan emosi yang lagu ini coba jangkau. Colbie dibantu oleh rekan pakemnya, Jason Reeves dalam menggodok ‘Try’, berikut asistensi dari Babyface dan Antonio Dixon yang menambah kedalaman lagu ini lebih terasa.

Berapa banyak kaum hawa yang jatuh menjadi korban atas standar keindahan– yang mungkin tak nyata– yang dibuat oleh media? Maka Colbie ingin mengetuk hati mereka untuk tak terlalu peduli terhadap standar itu. Ada potensi klasik untuk ‘Try’. Ia menggabungkan konsep romansa ‘Just The Way You Are’ (Billy Joel) ke dalam metode ‘Unpretty’ (TLC).

Oooh
Oooh

Put your make up on
Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?

Get your sexy on
Don’t be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
Do you like you?

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try
Yooou don’t have to try

Oooh
Oooh

Get your shopping on, at the mall, max your credit cards
You don’t have to choose, buy it all, so they like you
Do they like you?

Wait a second,
Why should you care, what they think of you
When you’re all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Do you like you?

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to bend until you break
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try
Yooou don’t have to try

Noooo
Oooh

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try
You don’t have to try

Take your make up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don’t you like you?
Cause I like you
