My New Favourite Track... Owl City by Fireflies

Jika berkerja di rumah, tak sah jika tidak memasang siaran MTV. Selain video-video terbaru, himpunan lagu-lagu hebat terkini, MTV turut menjadi peneman saya kala bersendiri. Itu terapi yang saya terapkan hari-hari.

Langsung menonton, saya terpaku sebaik dimainkan klip video Fireflies dari persembahan Owl City. Muzik elektronik yang santai dan mudah, buat saya terasa ingin menari dan terbang.

"'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance..."

Hanya dengan bermain piano sepanjang durasi (tanpa sebarang pergerakan lain atau menampakkan muka), cuma mainan-mainan kecil di sekeliling yang menjadi objek atau latar lagunya. Comel!

Owl City, atau nama sebenar beliau Adam Young kini sudah pun menawan beberapa carta lagu terhebat dunia.

Owl City
Fireflies

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

'Cause they'd fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You'd think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems

'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A fox trot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball that's just hanging by a thread

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep
(Please take me away from here)
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Awake when I'm asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Stabuxguy - Dah tukar ringtone handphone ke intro Firelies. Saya suka lagu ini, ringkas, namun beri semangat yang mendalam.
