Mengcover Lagu Dengan Lirik Yang Sama? Lihat Dulu Lagunya!

Haaa jadi karena nonton Letters to Juliet (gue bilangnya nista tapi toh postingan akhir-akhir ini nyebut film itu melulu), gue jadi denger lagu Love Story nya Taylor Swift. Yak, lagu lenje lenje ga cocok lah buat didengerin pas baru bangun tidur. Tapi udah denger versi covernya dari Forever the Sickest Kids? Lagu, lirik, dan komentar abis break

Dengan liriknya seperti ini:

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flash back starts
I’m standing there
On a balcony in summer air

See the lights
See the party, the ballgowns
I see you make your way throught the crowd
You say hello
Little did I know

That you were Juliet, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Romeo
And I was lying on the staircase
Begging you please don’t go

And I said
Juliet take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting
All that’s left to do is run
You’ll be the princess
I’ll be the prince and
It’s a love story
Baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet
‘Cause we’re dead if they know
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

Cause you were Juliet, I’m a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Romeo
But you were everything to me
And I was begging you please don’t go

And I said
Juliet take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll keep waiting
All that’s left to do is run
You’ll be the princess
I’ll be the prince and
It’s a love story
Baby just say yes

Juliet take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting all that’s left to do is run
You’ll be the princess
I’ll be the prince and
It’s a love story
Baby just say yes

And I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading, yeah
When I met you on the outskirts of town
And I said

Juliet save me
I’ve been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you
But you never come
Is this in my head
I don’t know
What to think
I knelt to the ground
And pulled out a ring
And said

Marry me Juliet
You’ll never have to be alone
I love you and that’s all I really know
I talked to your dad
You’ll pick out a white dress
It’s a love story
Baby just say yes

Cause we were both young
When I first saw you

Ehhh.. ehem… jadi memang lagu ini enak setelah dicover.. tapi kalau kita lihat liriknya… errr..
“And my daddy said stay away from Romeo”
“Juliet save me I’ve been feeling so alone”

Untungnya di bagian terakhir yang ngelamar tetep Romeo. Gak kebayang gue kalo Juliet ngelamar Romeo. Astagadragon, ternyata mengcover lirik yang tadinya dinyanyikan oleh penyanyi wanita, kalau diubah jadi untuk dinyanyikan penyanyi pria tetap harus diperhatikan. Nanti gue bakal nyoba cari album punk goes pop yang isinya sebagian besar cover lagu pop jadi jenis punk, dan kita lihat saja apakah liriknya tetep pas.

-Ditulis saat kembali terngiang-ngiang nonton Letters to Juliet tanpa bawa pasangan. Tuhan berikanlah aku kekuatan…
