Aku = Kamu, Kamu = Aku ???

Wow, bang John Ondrasik is back lewat album terbarunya Bookmark. Salah satu musisi favoritku yang gak sekedar bisa nyanyi, tapi bikin lagu yang dalem. SIngle pertamanya ya ini, what if. Ceritanya boleh lah dibeber dibawah ini. [Disclaimer : ini interpretasi saya sendiri]

Prinsip ekualitas, kalo judul diatas boleh disebut. Prinsip ini sewajarnya juga diterapkan di kehidupan sosial kita. Bagaimana kita tidaklah boleh menghakimi orang lain, memandang atribut dirinya dengan sebelah mata dll.

Pertanyaannya tentu adalah what if i were you, and you were i?

Meski tindakan setiap orang tidaklah selalu rasional dan benar, kadang kitapun juga melakukan itu. Namanya khilaf bro/sist. Jangan terburu-buru ditanggapi. Lihat situasi kondisi dan beri perhatian pada toleransi.

Bayangkan berapa banyak rasa sakit yang akan terangkat jika kita berpikir seperti ini?

Jadi, kalo mau ‘ngenyek’ orang, pake prinsip di atas terlebih dulu. Toh kita juga gak mau sekedar dihakimi karena atribut kita kan?

peace yo!!

Threw a line out to pull you to me
If you don’t get it, then you don’t get it
You made your mind up before you knew me
If you don’t get it, then you don’t get it
Take my hand for a minute.
We’re in it – imagine all the pain that might be forgiven

What if I had your heart?
What if you wore my scars?
How would we break down?
What if you were me and what if I were you?

What if you told my lies?
What if I cried with your eyes?
Could anyone keep us down?
What if you were me? What if I were you?

Had a dream of a new tomorrow.
If you don’t get it, then you don’t get it.
I took a step hoping you might follow.
If you don’t get it, then you don’t get it.
Take a chance for a minute. Jump in it.
Imagine if you asked yourself for a minute:

To the ones who make it better, find to get out, gotta touch the other side.
What if all that it took to save our lives together was to rise up?

What if your hand was my hand?
Could you hold on or let go?
What if your life was my life?
Can you love what we don’t know?
What if your hand was my hand?
Could we hold on or let go?
What if your life was my life?
And what if I were you?
