Single of the Day: The Script – Man On A Wire 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Salut buat The Script yang punya warna musik sendiri dan hingga album keempatnya mereka masih mampu mempertahankan kemurniannya. ‘Man on a Wire‘ adalah yang terbaru dari Danny dkk, yang masih berasal dari album “No Sound Without Silence”. Lagu ini memiliki melodi yang benang merahnya sangat tebal dengan ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’, ‘For the First Time’, ‘Hall of Fame’ ataupun ‘Superheroes’, bukti bahwa karakter musik mereka hidup, tumbuh, dan dipupuk dengan cara seksama.

Untuk lirik pun demikian. I stand on my opinion from day one until today kalau dalam urusan lirik, The Script adalah pujangga modern. Barisan lirik yang mereka punya puitis, tapi tetap manusiawi. Gambaran getir terhadap lukisan ‘Man on a Wire’ di lagu ini masuk akal, bisa dipercaya. Ilmu lawan kata dan sebab akibat berbaris rapi membentuk satu cerita apik mengenai cinta dan putus asa.

Seandainya kemanusiaan lagu The Script ini bisa kembali menduniakan level sukses yang mereka punya. Hingga saat ini sepertinya belum ada sukses mayor yang tercipta pasca ‘Breakeven’. Lagu paling legendaris yang dibuat dari album perdana sepertinya akan selalu menjdi momok bagi single-single untuk album-album sesudahnya, meskipun sebenarnya setiap album The Script punya kualitas memorability yang sangat tinggi. Hanya kata sukses itu saja yang membendungnya dari pengakuan mutlak pencapaian band yang menanjak. But I’m sure, they’re not a wire for that.

LYRIC
Who would have thought that I’d be here by myself?
Who would have thought that you’d be bad for my health?
Now I know, now I know
I’m just a man on a wire
Who would have thought about the cause and effect?
Yesterday’s love is tomorrow’s regrets
Now I know, now I know
I’m just a man on a wire

No, I can’t look down
I’m trying to fight the feeling
I will fall to the ground
If I ever see you
‘Cause I feel like I’m walkin’ on a tightrope

My heart is in my throat
I’m counting on high hopes to get me over you
And I’ve got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I’m counting on high hopes to get me over you, you
Cause I’m a man on a wire, on a wire
I’m a man on a wire, on a wire

Who would have thought I’d see you with someone else?
Who would have thought that I’d be in such a mess?
Now you know, now you know
I’m just a man on a wire

But I walk that line
I try to keep my senses
Make it to the oher side
I know the consequences and
I feel like I’m walkin’ on a tight road

My heart is in my throat
I’m counting on high hopes to get me over you
And I’ve got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I’m counting on high hopes to get me over you, you
Cause I’m a man on a wire,on a wire
I’m a man on a wire, on a wire
Cause I’m a man on a wire,on a wire
Cause I’m a man on a wire, on a wire

The higher I get
The more I miss the ground
No safety nets
Now you’re not around
I have to keep walking
To keep me from falling down

Feels like I’m walkin’ on a tightrope
My heart is in my throat
I’m counting on high hopes to get me over you,you
And I’ve got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I’m counting on high hopes to get me over you,you
Cause I’m a man on a wire,on a wire
I’m a man on a wire, on a wire
Cause I’m a man on a wire,on a wire
Cause I’m a man on a wire, on a wire
