Song of the Week : Justin Timberlake - Mirrors


Song of the Week! Ini adalah sesi di mana aku akan membahas tentang 1 lagu yang sering banget aku dengakan selama hampir seminggu penuh. Untuk kali ini, ada satu lagu dari Justin Timberlake yang judulnya "Mirrors".

Lagu ini aku putar ratusan kali dalam satu minggu ini. Pertama kali mendengarkannya aku memang suka sih, tapi tidak sesuka sekarang. Sekarang rasanya pas aja saat mendengarkannya. Maknanya dalem banget lagu ini. Suka sekali dengan liriknya, menyentuh kalbu. hahaha

Lagu ini menginspirasiku untuk membuat gambar di atas, yang aku beri judul sama dengan lagu ini yaitu "Mirrors". Cukup banyak yang tidak mengerti dengan gambarku satu ini. Yah, aku bisa katakan memang tidak akan terlalu mengerti gambar ini jika belum pernah dengar lagunya, karena aku mencoba mengekspresikan lagu ini melalui gambar. Nanti aku akan jelaskan di bawah.

Sebelumnya, seperti biasa, untuk kalian yang belum pernah dengar lagunya, check it out!



-----------------------------o Lyric o-----------------------------

Aren't you somethin' to admire?
'Cause your shine is somethin' like a mirror
And I can't help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever feel alone and
The glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I'm always
Parallel on the other side

'Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there's no place we couldn't go
Just put your hand on the glass
I'll be tryin' to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
I'm lookin' right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin' back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn't get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it's clear as this promise
That we're making two reflections into one
'Cause it's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Aren't you somethin', an original
'Cause it doesn't seem merely a sample
And I can't help but stare, 'cause
I see truth somewhere in your eyes
I can't ever change without you
You reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I would look at us all the time

'Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there's no place we couldn't go
Just put your hand on the glass
I'll be tryin' to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
I'm lookin' right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin' back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn't get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it's clear as this promise
That we're making two reflections into one
'Cause it's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow's a mystery
I can see you lookin' back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me

'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
I'm lookin' right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now (please show me, baby)
I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin' back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn't get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it's clear as this promise
That we're making two reflections into one
'Cause it's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

You are, you are the love of my life

Now you're the inspiration for this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it's already gone
And I can't wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are

You are, you are the love of my life

Girl you're my reflection, all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You're my reflection and all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do

You are, you are the love of my life

Suka banget sama konsep klipnya saat Justin Timberlake-nya bercermin kemudian muncul bayangan cewe dicermin bergantian dengan bayangan Justin Timberlake sendiri. Dari dulu aku sudah lama memikirkan konsep seperti itu untuk aku gambar, tapi tidak pernah kesampaian karena pada akhirnya selalu jelek.

Aku akhirnya menyerah dan mencoba membuatnya kembali saat kuliah ini dengan mengambil inspirasi dengan lagu ini. Aku mencoba menyederhanakan gambarnya. Aku awalnya ingin memposisikan bayangan dan orang lurus ke depan, tapi ternyata sulit dan sulit dipahami. Itulah mengapa aku memilih gambarnya untuk ke samping saja, meskipun banyak yang tidak paham juga.

Aku mengambil kata-kata...

You reflect in this heart of mineIf you ever feel alone andThe glare makes me hard to findJust know that I'm alwaysParallel on the other side

untuk menggambarkan pantulan mereka berdua namun sang wanita terlihat lebih pudar karena berada di sisi yang berbeda.

Just put your hand on the glassI'll be tryin' to pull you throughYou just gotta be strong

dari kalimat ini aku membuat gambarnya mereka saling mencoba menyentuh dari kedua sisi. Kemudian terakhir..

I'm lookin' right at the other half of meThe vacancy that sat in my heartIs a space that now you hold

dari lirik ini makanya mengapa aku membuat mereka berdua hanya setengah jadi. Karena mereka berdua ada untuk saling melengkapi satu sama lain. :)

Masih sulit dipahami ya? haha Gambarku abstrak banget berarti.

Tambahan: Ini adalah sketsa awalnya.


Baiklah, sekian dulu deh. Aku sarankan kalian mendengarkan deh lagunya, bagus loh~

haha
Goodbye!
