Coming Home

Satu lagi lagu yang berhasil diputar berulang-ulang di playlistku. Lagu lama yang dinyanyikan Diddy-Dirty Money & Skylar Grey, search di youtube vidclipnya di-launch tahun 2010.

Aku jatuh cinta dengan lagu ini karna liat salah satu show di AXN berjudul So You Think You Can Dance season 8. Duo talent show ini bernama Sasha dan Alexander menarikan tarian berjudul Coming Home dengan lagu berjudul sama.

Menurutku (dan saya rasa juri show ini setuju) tarian ini memiliki cerita yang menyentuh. Berkisah seorang istri yang menunggu suaminya pulang ke rumah hingga akhirnya sang suami yang pulang dari tugasnya sebagai tentara di Afganistan benar-benar pulang ke rumah. Mereka mengungkapkan suka citanya lewat tarian yang apik. Marie dan Debby meneteskan air mata karna begitu haru merasakan soul yang diberikan Sasha dan Alex dalam gerak tubuhnya. Aku? Ya ikut nangis juga. Ahahaha.

Meskipun aliran lagu ini rap, liriknya emang bener mengena. Untuk orang-orang yang benar-benar merindukan rumah. Ato buat yang lagi LDR ma pasangannya, wah ini pas banget didengerin kalo tau pasangan kita mau pulang.

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
tell the World I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home, I’m coming home
tell the World that I’m coming

Back where I belong, yeah I never felt so strong
(I’m back baby)
I feel like there’s nothing that I can’t try
and if you with me put your hands high
(put your hands high)
If you ever lost a light before, this ones for you
and you, the dreams are for you

I hear “The Tears of a Clown”
I hate that song
I always feel like they talking to me when it comes on
another day another Dawn
another Keisha, nice to meet ya, get the math I’m gone
what am I s’posed to do when the club lights come on
its easy to be Puff, its harder to be Sean
what if the twins ask why I aint marry their mom (why, damn!)
how do I respond?
what if my son stares with a face like my own
and says he wants to be like me when he’s grown
shit! But I aint finished growing
another night the inevitible prolongs
another day another Dawn
just tell Keisha and Teresa I’ll be better in the morn’
another lie that I carry on
I need to get back to the place I belong


[Verse 2]
“A house is Not a Home”, I hate this song
is a house really a home when your loved ones are gone
and niggas got the nerve to blame you for it
and you know you woulda took the bullet if you saw it
but you felt it and still feel it
and money can’t make up for it or conceal it
but you deal with it and you keep ballin’
pour out some liquor, play ball and we keep ballin’
baby we’ve been living in sin ’cause we’ve been really in love
but we’ve been living as friends
so you’ve been a guest in your own home
it’s time to make your house your home
pick up your phone, come on


[Verse 3]
“Ain’t No Stopping Us Now”, I love that song
whenever it comes on it makes me feel strong
I thought I told y’all that we won’t stop
we back cruising through Harlem, these old blocks
it’s what made me, saved me, drove me crazy
drove me away than embraced me
forgave me for all of my shortcomings
welcome to my homecoming
yeah it’s been a long time coming
lot of fights, lot of scars, lot of bottles
lot of cars, lot of ups, lot of downs
made it back, lost my dog (I miss you BIG)
and here I stand, a better man! (a better man)
Thank you Lord (Thank you Lord)
