Review

Aku menyebut mereka pujangga masa kini. Sampai sekarang aku masih takjub dengan trio Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan, dan Glen Power ini. Band mereka The Script mampu menghasilkan lagu-lagu yang bisa dibilang timeless, rangkaian kata dalam liriknya indah sehingga tidak lapuk ditelan masa. Termasuk single paling baru mereka, ‘Nothing’yang diambil dari album kedua “Science And Faith”. Single yang rilis sejak 21 Nopember lalu ini merupakan hasil kreasi Danny, Mark, bareng Steve Kipner dan Andrew Frampton.

Mari bercerita tentang apa sebenarnya ini lagu. Jadi, Danny sebagai salah satu penciptanya mengaku kalau lagu ini adalah kondisi pasca putus, dimana si cowok berusaha untuk menghibur diri bareng temannya nongkrong di sebuah bar, tapi justru si cowok itu malah nelpon si cewek untuk minta balikan. Nah, jawaban si ceweklah yang dijadikan judul lagu ini. NIHIL.

Kalau ada pemilihan musisi yang paling jago meng-convert keadaan paling janggal sekalipun menjadi lagu yang puitis, aku pasti pilih mereka. Ironis ya, lagu tentang patah hati yang luar biasa meremuk redamkan seseorang malah hiburan yang jempolan untuk telinga kita. Dan mungkin ketika kita menyampaikan kekaguman terhadap karya musik The Script, bisa jadi jawaban mereka dengan rendah hati terlontar, “Ah, it was nothing!”.

Song Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Am I better off dead?
Am I better off a quitter?
They say I’m better off now
Than I ever was with her
As they take me to my local down the street
I’m smiling but I’m dying trying not to drag my feet

They say a few drinks will help me to forget her
But after one too many I know that I’m never
Only they can’t see where this is gonna end
They all think I’m crazy but to me it’s perfect sense

[Chorus]
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
‘Cause I’m shouting your name all over the town
I’m swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind turn it all around

And I know that I’m drunk but I’ll say the words
And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love but all I heard
Was nothing

[Verse 2]
So I stumble there, along the railings and the fences
I know if I faced her face, that she’ll come to her senses
Every drunk step I take leads me to her door
If she sees how much I’m hurting, she’ll take me back for sure

[Chorus]
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
‘Cause I’m shouting your name all over the town
I’m swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind turn it all around

And I know that I’m drunk but I’ll say the words
And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love but all I heard
Was nothing

She said nothing
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
Oh, I got nothing
Oh, I got nothing
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

Ohh, sometimes love’s intoxicating
Ohh, you’re coming down, your hands are shaking
When you realize there’s no one waiting

Am I better off dead?
Am I better off a quitter?
They say I’m better off now
Than I ever was with her

[Chorus]
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
‘Cause I’m shouting your name all over the town
I’m swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind turn it all around

And I know that I’m drunk but I’ll say the words
And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love but all I heard
Was nothing

She said nothing
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
Oh, I got nothing
I got nothing
I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
Ohh I got nothing

I got nothing [x3]
