Beautiful (Me)ss

Kata seorang teman lama, lagu yang dinyanyikan oleh Jason Mraz ini sangat menggambarkan diriku. Come to analyze the words, hey, apa jangan-jangan aku dan om ganteng berusia 34 ini pernah saling mengenal di kehidupan sebelumnya atau apa? Lirik lagu ini semacam mendeskripsikan karakterku banget.

Jason Mraz

Lagu ini menggambarkan tentang seorang perempuan yang punya “dua sisi kehidupan”–di balik kecantikannya, tersembunyi kerapuhan dan “kerusakan-kerusakan” manusiawi. Perempuan yang baik hati namun diam-diam menyimpan kenakalan; perempuan yang agak ceroboh namun punya “kekuatan” dalam hal mencintai pasangannya; perempuan yang.. yah, tidak menjalani segala sesuatu seperti cara yang banyak orang anggap betul, namun tetap hal itu merupakan keindahan tersendiri bagi orang yang memandangnya secara objektif. Lagu ini lebih ke pengungkapan kebahagiaan menurut cara kita sendiri. Bahwa bahagia tidak melulu hanya dinilai dari “pakem” yang sudah menetap sekian lama dalam benak. Bahwa dalam kehinaan pun, sebetulnya ada keindahan yang bisa dipetik…

Sebelum ngelantur terlalu jauh, ini lirik lagunya.

You’ve got the best of both worlds
You’re the kind of girl who can take down a man,
And lift him back up again
You are strong but you’re needy,
Humble but you’re greedy
And based on your body language,
And shoddy cursive I’ve been reading
Your style is quite selective,
though your mind is rather reckless
Well I guess it just suggests
that this is just what happiness is

Hey, what a beautiful mess this is
It’s like picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write
Kind of turn themselves into knives
And don’t mind my nerve you could call it fiction
But I like being submerged in your contradictions, dear
‘Cause here we are, here we are

Although you were biased I love your advice
Your comebacks ‒ they’re quick
And probably have to do with your insecurities
There’s no shame in being crazy,
Depending on how you take these
Words that paraphrasing this relationship we’re staging

And what a beautiful mess, yes it is
It’s like picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say
Kind of turn themselves into blades
And the kind and courteous is a life I’ve heard
But it’s nice to say that we played in the dirt
‘Cause here, here we are, here we are

We’re still here
What a beautiful mess this is
It’s like taking a guess when the only answer is “Yes”

Through timeless words and priceless pictures
We’ll fly like birds not of this earth

And tides ‒ they turn ‒ and hearts disfigure
But that’s no concern when we’re wounded together

And we tore our dresses and stained our shirts
But it’s nice today. Oh, the wait was so worth it.
