Still Standing

It’s been a while dari suicide bombing di Ritz Carlton dan JW Marriot Jakarta. Sedikit demi sedikit Kepolisian RI sudah berhasil menguak latar belakang dan para pelaku di balik kejadian tersebut. Tadi malam pas lagi bengong, gw kesandung sama lagunya Bryan Adams yang di-remix sama DJ Sammy, Heaven. Lagu ini di-remix untuk mengenang satu tahun kejadian 9/11.

Gw pikir, setahun ke depan bakal ada anak Indonesia yang bakal bilang seperti apa yang ada di dalam lagu itu. Bahwa dia sangat rindu ayahnya yang menjadi korban, bahwa dia selalu membawa foto ayahnya dalam kotak makan siang bergambar Blues’s Clues, dan mencoba tabah bertahan hidup tanpa hangat peluk ayahnya.

RIP para korban. Pada kenyataannya, kami masih tetap berdiri pada tempat semula. We are not afraid, not to the chicken sh!ts yang hanya berani lempar batu sembunyi tangan. Paling enggak, beranilah hadapi muka kami dengan berkata “Ya, kami yang melakukan itu”.


Dj Sammy - Heaven (911 Remix)

*It's been a year daddy
I really really miss you
Mommy says your safe now
In a beautiful place called heaven*

Oh I'm thinking about our younger years

*We had your favorite dinner tonight*

there was only you and me

*I ate it all up*

We were young and wild and free

*Even though I don't like carrots*

Now nothing can take you away from me

*I learned how to swim this summer*

We've been down that road before

*I can even open my eyes*

But that's over now

*While I'm under water*

You keep me coming back for more

*Can't you see me?*

Baby you're all that I want
When you're lying here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven

*I started kindergarten this year*

Love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven


*I carry a picture of us
In my Blue's Clues lunchbox*

Oh once in your life you find someone

*You are the greatest daddy*

Who will turn your world around
Pick you up when you're feeling down
Now nothing can change what you mean to me

*I can swing on the swing by myself*

There's a lot that I could say
But just hold me now


*Even though I miss you pushing me*

Cause our love will light the way

*Can't you see me?*

Baby you're all that I want
When you're lying here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven


*I miss how you used to tickle me*

And love is all that I need

*Tickle my belly*

And I found it there in your heart

*My belly hurts*

It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven


*I try not to cry*

I've been waiting for so long

*Mommy says it's okay*

For something to arrive
For love to come along


*I know you don't like it when I cry*

Now our dreams are coming true
Through the good times and the bad


*You never wanted me to be sad*

I'll be standing there by you

*I try Daddy but it hurts*

Baby you're all that I want

*Is it true you're not coming home?*

When you're lying here in my arms

*Maybe someday*

I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven


*I can visit you in heaven, okay?*

And love is all that I need
And I've found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven


*It's time for me to go bed now
I sleep with the light on
Just in case you come home
And kiss me good night
I love you so much
I miss you Daddy*
