Introspection With The ‘Man In The Mirror’

man in the mirrorSaat sy blogwalking & ngintip2 blog seseorang, saya tertarik baca salah satu postingannya yang berisi lirik lagu.

Ya, ‘Man In The Mirror’. Hitsnya om Michael Jackson, tapi cover version yang diaransemen ulang secara acoustic oleh bang James Morrison. Ga cuma aransemen musiknya yg enak, tapi liriknya juga cukup dalem & sulit didapat dari lagu2 jaman sekarang. Aapalagi lagu Indo yg maknanya rata2 dangkal sedangkal kali citarum yang tersedimentasi limbah.hehe

Terlepas dari makna sebenarnya yang ingin disampaikan si pengarang maupun si penyanyi, setelah mendengar lagu ini saya memiliki hasil ‘penerawangan’ tersendiri. Saya berpikir ulang dan kembali berkaca, melihat kembali siapa sebenarnya diri saya, untuk apa saya ada di sini, bagaimana saya menjalani hidup ini, kemana kita akan kembali, & kepada siapa saya mempertanggungjawabkan segala sesuatu yg saya lakukan. Saya jadi tercenung dan kembali teringatkan..

Saya ga akan men-share hasil ‘penerawangan’ saya di sini krn sy yakin para pemirsa sudah tau ada dimana jawabannya. Yoi, the manual handbook of life : Qur’an.

Trims kepada sang pemilik blog yang sudah menginspirasi dan (sesuai headline blognya) mengajak pembacanya mengintrospeksi diri. Keep on inspiring people yo..🙂

PS : saya iseng nyari lirik & ngulik chord gitarnya juga. buat yg mau ngunduh mp3-nya klik aja disini. moga bermanfaat.. Salam lemper! eh, super!

E G#m C#m B Asus2 
I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life
E G#m C#m
It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
       B Asus2
Gonna make it right
    E G#m C#m B
As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
Asus2
This wind is blowin' my mind
    E G#m C#m    
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
B Asus2
Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs

Bridge:
F#m G#m
A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top
Asus2 G#m
And a one man's soul
F#m G#m
They follow each other on the wind ya' know
     Asus2 B
'Cause they got nowhere to go
B
That's why I want you to know

Chorus:
E G#m Asus2 B
I'm starting with the man in the mirror
E G#m Asus2 B
I'm asking him to change his ways
E G#m Asus2 A#sus2
And no message could have been any clearer
        B
If you wanna make the world a better place
           E G#m C#m B Asus2
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah

Verse 2:
E G#m C#m B I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
Asus2
It's time that I realize
             E G#m C#m B
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
          Asus2
Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?

Bridge:
F#m G#m
A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart
Asus2 G#m
And a washed-out dream
    F#m G#m
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see
          Asus2 B
Cause they got no where to be
                             B
That's why I'm starting with me

Chorus: 
E G#m Asus2 B
I'm starting with the man in the mirror 
E G#m Asus2 B
I'm asking him to change his ways 
E G#m Asus2 A#sus2
And no message could have been any clearer
       B
If you wanna make the world a better place
                                          B  
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
E G#m Asus2 B
I'm starting with the man in the mirror
E G#m Asus2 B
I'm asking him to change his ways 
E G#m Asus2 A#sus2
And no message could have been any clearer
         B
If you wanna make the world a better place
                                          B 
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
