Single of the Day: Ed Sheeran – Don’t 

Released by: Warner Music Indonesia

Fase pertama adalah fase dimana Ed Sheeran mempopulerkan diri dengan lagu-lagu heartfelt nan emosional dalam keluarga balada. Fase selanjutnya berkembang pada pesona lain yang bisa membuka telinga pendengar terhadap musik Ed yang dinamis. ‘Don’t‘, single kedua dari album kedua Ed, “x” memang masih diterjemahkan sebagai sebuah lagu pop rock, blue-eyed soul. Yang membuatnya berbeda adalah tempo yang meningkat. Tidak setinggi ‘Sing’, tapi tak selembut ‘Lego House’.

Kualitas the-in-between yang dianut ‘Don’t’ merupakan keuntungan. Sebagai pelumas yang memuluskan jalan ke telinga pendengar sekaligus obat anti bosan yang menggerakkan rantai dalam dinamika musik Ed. Lagu berlirik rapat dan penuh ini ternyata berkisah mengenai pengkhianatan, menggunting dalam lipatan. Agak ragu untuk menemukan posisi tepatnya lewat latar musik? Well, lagu ini juga tidak sepenuhnya mengenai perasaan, tapi lebih pada deskripsi situasi.

Yang menarik dalam single ini adalah keterlibatan Benny Blanco dan Rick Rubin. Aha! Surprising, isn’t it?! Awalnya mungkin berfikir bahwa akan ada kontras yang terjadi. Serius, ini bagaikan dua dunia yang bersinggungan. Dan takjubnya, karakter Benny dan Rick justru melunak, saling mendukung guna menguatkan pembinaan karakter Ed. Dan, ‘Don’t’ jatuh-jatuhnya bukan sebagai lagu patah hati karena kegagalan cinta, tapi lebih pada penguatan diri. Karena, what doesn’t kill you still makes you stronger.

LYRIC
Ah lahmlahlah
Ah lahmlahlah

[Verse 1:]
I met this girl late last year
She said don’t you worry if I disappear
I told her I’m not really looking for another mistake
I called an old friend thinking that the trouble would wait
But then I jump right in
A week later returned
I reckon she was only looking for a lover to burn
But I gave her my time for two or three nights
Then I put it on pause ’til the moment was right
I went away for months until our paths crossed again
She told me I was never looking for a friend
Maybe you could swing by my room around 10
Baby bring a lemon and a bottle of gin
We’ll be in between the sheets ’til the late AM
Baby if you wanted me then you should’ve just said
She’s singing
Ah lahmlahlah

[Chorus:]
Don’t fuck with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don’t wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah
Don’t fuck with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and reload
I don’t wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah

[Verse 2:]
For a couple weeks I
Only want to see her
We drink away the days with a take-away pizza
Before a text message was the only way to reach her
Now she’s staying at my place and loves the way I treat her
Singing out Aretha
All over the track like a feature
And never wants to sleep, I guess that I don’t want to either
But me and her we make money the same way
Four cities, two planes the same day
Those shows have never been what it’s about
But maybe we’ll go together and just figure it out
I’d rather put on a film with you and sit on the couch
But we should get on a plane
Or we’ll be missing it now
Wish I’d have written it down
The way that things played out
When she was kissing him
How? I was confused about
She should figure it out while I’m sat here singing
Ah lahmlahlah

[Chorus:]
Don’t fuck with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don’t wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah
Don’t fuck with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and reload
I don’t wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah

[Verse 3:]
[Knock knock knock] on my hotel door
I don’t even know if she knows what for
She was crying on my shoulder
I already told ya
Trust and respect is what we do this for
I never intended to be next
But you didn’t need to take him to bed that’s all
And I never saw him as a threat
Until you disappeared with him to have sex of course
It’s not like we were both on tour
We were staying on the same fucking hotel floor
And I wasn’t looking for a promise or commitment
But it was never just fun and I thought you were different
This is not the way you realize what you wanted
It’s a bit too much, too late if I’m honest
All this time God knows I’m singing
Ah lahmlahlah

[Chorus 2x:]
Don’t fuck with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don’t wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah
Don’t fuck with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and reload
I don’t wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah
