The Shadow Proves The Sunshine

Suatu malam, waktu kita lagi dalam perjalanan pulang, aku cuma diam dan memandang langit malam yang begitu kelam karena mendung, tiba-tiba Gonzha, yang biasa aku panggil kak Za, tanya:

kak Za: "Ye, udah dengerin Switchfoot?"

Aku: "Udah. Kenapa?"

kak Za: "Gimana menurutmu?"

Aku: "Mmm.. bagus."

kak Za: "Aku paling suka lagunya yang judulnya Shadows Prove The Sunshine.."

Aku: "Emangnya kenapa, kak?"

kak Za: "Liriknya bicara tentang seseorang yang ingin keluar dari bayang-bayang kekelaman hidupnya. Tapi dia gag bisa. Tapi yang bagus itu, coba pikirkan deh, bayangan itu baru keliatan waktu ada cahaya, bener gag?"

Aku: ".... iya ya.."

kak Za: "Jadi, Ye, waktu kamu tahu kamu sedang berada dalam gelapnya bayang-bayang, percayalah kalau disana masih terdapat sunshine buat hidupmu!"

Aku: ".... iya kak."

kak Za: "So, jangan pernah nyerah apapun yang terjadi nanti. Sekalipun itu lebih gelap dari apapun, kamu tahu itu gelap, kamu juga harus tahu berarti ada terang disana. Oke?"

Aku: "Iya!"

"The Shadow Proves The Sunshine"

Sunshine, won't you be my mother
Sunshine, come and help me sing
My heart is darker than these oceans
My heart is frozen underneath

We are crooked souls trying to stay up straight,
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sunshine

Oh Lord, why did you forsake me?
Oh Lord, don't be far away away
Storm clouds gathering beside me
Please Lord, don't look the other way

Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me

Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me

Shine on me,
Let my shadows prove the sunshine
