Hamburg Song - Keane


Kusebut "Hamburg Song" yang dibawakan Keane sebagai song for the asking -- lagu tentang permintaan. Permintaan yang barangkali nggak meminta banyak: nggak meminta jadi orang nomor satu di mata kawan hidupnya. Nggak minta jadi orang terpentingnya. Nggak minta dikagumi atau dipuja. Ia hanya ingin saling memberi cahaya. Saling memberi hangatnya rasa dicintai. Saling menjadi rumah bagi jiwa yang letih. Sesuatu yang sangat manusiawi dan sederhana. Tapi agaknya, permintaan sederhana ini dianggap angin lalu atau hanya buang-buang waktu. Diiringi melodi piano-organ yang sunyi, dengan suara parau ia berujar: ku mengalah, namun kau tak mau tahu... I lay myself down but you don't want to know...


LIRIK LAGU HAMBURG SONG - KEANE

I don't wanna be adored
Don't wanna be first in line
Or make myself heard
I'd like to bring a little light
To shine a light on your life
To make you feel loved

No, don't wanna be the only one you know
I wanna be the place you call home

I lay myself down
To make it so, but you don't want to know
I give much more
Than I'd ever ask for

Will you see me in the end
Or is it just a waste of time
Trying to be your friend
To shine, shine, shine
Shine a little light
Shine a light on my life
And warm me up again

Fool, I wonder if you know yourself at all
You know that it could be so simple

I lay myself down
To make it so, but you don't want to know
You take much more
Than I'd ever ask for

Say a word or two to brighten my day
Do you think that you could see your way

To lay yourself down
And make it so, but you don't want to know
You take much more
Than I'd ever ask for
