Music For “3 Hari Untuk Selamanya”

Loading tracks...

Pada bulan November 2005, produser film Mira Lesmana berada di antara penonton di konser mini mereka di Tornado Coffee Kemang Jakarta. Pada saat sesi rehat ia mendatangi mereka untuk menyampaikan kesukaannya pada musik Float. Ia pun menawarkan sebuah proyek kolaborasi dimana Float, dengan musik dalam album barunya nanti, akan mengisi soundtrack untuk film terbarunya yang berjudul “3 Hari Untuk Selamanya” yang disutradarai Riri Riza. Album baru itu akan dirilis oleh label perusahaan rekamannya yang baru, yaitu Miles Music. Tawaran itu pun langsung disambut antusias oleh Meng, Bontel, dan Remon.

Sayangnya, bersamaan dengan kealpaan seorang manajer resmi yang berperan penting dalam menangani pengembangan visi, soliditas, citra, dan potensi bisnis yang diperlukan untuk kelangsungan eksistensi Float, berbagai masalah yang melibatkan ketiganya makin banyak bermunculan dan tidak terhindarkan. Apalagi setelah Bontel dan Remon direkrut untuk bekerja di sebuah rumah produksi yang membuat ketiganya semakin jarang bertemu. Akhirnya, pada tanggal 5 Februari 2006, Meng memutuskan untuk menjalankan proyeknya sebagai musisi solo.

Tapi, perpisahan itu tidak berlangsung lama. Pada pertemuan Meng dan Abang Edwin SA yang juga merupakan teman istrinya, Meng menceritakan kondisi Float terakhir. Abang mengusulkan agar mereka bersama-sama menemui Mira Lesmana untuk menceritakan perkembangan ini, sehubungan dengan tawaran kolaborasi yang sudah terlanjur disanggupi oleh Float. Akhirnya Meng setuju untuk bergabung kembali dengan Bontel dan Remon dalam Float yang baru sebagai sebuah proyek, bukan sebagai band. Abang pun berperan sebagai manajer proyek itu. Pada bulan April 2006, mereka mulai mengerjakan album baru mereka yang kemudian diberi judul “Music For 3 Hari Untuk Selamanya” (Miles Music, 2007). Pada tanggal 21 Desember 2006, proses mastering album itu selesai. Tidak lama kemudian, Jakobus Mulia bergabung dengan Float untuk membantu menjalankan peran manajerial.

Dengan album soundtrack ini, Float memperoleh penghargaan bergengsi seperti Abhinaya Trophy untuk Soundtrack Terbaik di ajang Jakarta Film Festival dan Best Theme Song di ajang penganugerahan MTV Indonesian Movie Awards, dimana keduanya didapat di tahun yang sama. Selain itu, sebuah pencapaian lain juga diraih Float. Lagu mereka yang berjudul “Surrender” digunakan sebagai lagu tema dalam promosi media sebuah film seri produksi Satellite Television for the Asian Region (STAR), sebuah televisi satelit berbayar yang berbasis di Hong Kong. Film seri itu berjudul “Heroes” (Season 2).

3 Hari Untuk Selamanya

Lewat sudah
Tiga hari ‘tuk s’lamanya
Dan kekallah
Detik-detik di dalamnya
Tumbuh sejuta rasa di hati yang dulu diingkari
“Mungkinkah cinta itu disana?”, dua hati mereka

Bagai mimpi
Terwujud tak disadari
Kata hati
Tak s’mua didengarkan lagi
Waktu berpacu, harap pun jadi hasrat ‘tuk memiliki
Kini tersisa reka semata cara untuk kembali

Semula indah terasa, mereka s’ribu rencana
Mungkinkah hati miliki kembaran rasa?
Semua henti disana, percuma

Langit biru
Setiap liku jalan itu
Akan s’lalu
Melukiskan kisah itu
Rindu yang kian terbendung lama akan mencapai batasnya
Terbuai indah kenangan baru, sesal jadi penyatu
S’galanya t’lah berlalu

Semula indah terasa, mereka s’ribu rencana

Rindu yang kian terbendung lama t’lah mencapai batasnya
Kini tersisa reka semata cara untuk kembali

Semula indah terasa, mereka s’ribu rencana
Mungkinkah hati miliki kembaran rasa?
Semua henti disana, percuma

Semua henti disana, percuma

Pulang

Dan lalu…
Rasa itu tak mungkin lagi kini
Tersimpan di hati
Bawa aku pulang, rindu!
Bersamamu!

Dan lalu…
Air mata tak mungkin lagi kini
Bicara tentang rasa
Bawa aku pulang, rindu!
Segera!

Jelajahi waktu
Ke tempat berteduh hati kala biru

Dan lalu…
Sekitarku tak mungkin lagi kini
Meringankan lara
Bawa aku pulang, rindu!
Segera!

Dan lalu…
O, langkahku tak lagi jauh kini
Memudar biruku
Jangan lagi pulang!
Jangan lagi datang!
Jangan lagi pulang, rindu!
Pergi jauh!

Dan lalu…

Stupido Ritmo

You and I painting rainbows when no rain falls on our wall
Smelling raindrops on a hilltop as they fall
You and I laughing loudly with no reasons in our walk
Chasing sunsets, dancing minuet in the dark

Why don’t we just disappear
If that could keep us here?

You and I sharing snow fall and the beach sand in our thoughts
Writing love words with our whispers in our hearts
You and I stealing kisses from each other when we fight
Making wishes on the same star every night

Why don’t we just dream away
If that could make us stay?
Why can’t we just dream away?
We’re not real, anyway

ta ra ta ta ta ta ta ra ta ta
ra ta ta ra ta ta ta ra
Why don’t we just stay this high?
Pretend we’re all that fly
Why can’t we just stay this high?
We might rule our own sky

You and I singing solo our very own silly song
Playing lovers of all edens all life long

All life long

Surrender

Life’ll only be crazy as it’s always been
Wake up early, stay up late, having debts
Things won’t be as easy as it often seems
And yet you want me
This cliché’s killing me
Still I need more I need more
This I’ve never thought before

Chi trova un amico, trova un tesoro*
We can look for many other foreign lines to make me survive your love
You said “To the future we surrender.
Let’s just celebrate today, tomorrow’s too far away.
What keeps you waiting to love?
Isn’t this what you’ve been dreaming of?”

Life’s to live and love’s to love

Sundays will be empty as it’s always been
Watching TV, wake up late, playing dead
Mondays won’t be easy with no plans and schemes
Now that you’re still here
The silence shouts it clear
You’re still here
The silence shouts it clear

To the future we surrender
Life’s to live and love’s to love
To the future we surrender
Life’s to live and love’s to love

To the future we surrender
Life’s to live and love’s to love
To the future we surrender
Life’s to live and love’s to love

The Prophecy

I come with the sun in my face
Not for the damned, neither for the blessed
All kingdoms and religions will fall
I’m whose name you don’t call

I was brought by the spirit of love
I made all differences but not wars they cause
Those broken promises and those unfair laws
I’m you choose not to see

I’m what you doubt in all your beliefs
I’m not in chants in languages you speak
I’m from above, I’m from beneath
I’m no-one’s prophecy

I come with my fiery eyes
Not for the misled, neither for the wise
There’s only one thing to clarify
What shall be glorified

I was brought by the spirit of love
I made all differences but not wars they cause
Those broken promises and those unfair laws
I’m you choose not to see

Gather, all angels! Gather, all stars! Gather, all creatures!
Open the seals!

I was brought by the spirit of love
I made all differences but not wars they cause
Those broken promises and those unfair laws
I’m you choose not to see

I’m what you doubt in all your beliefs
I’m not in chants in languages you speak
I’m from above, I’m from beneath

I’m no-one’s prophecy

No-Dream Land

Running down the corridor in such fancy suit
To catch another 9 to 5
Hiding all your true desires and keep all of them mute
Seems the only way to survive
The never ending story of this no-dream land
Is on the morning headline all this time
Our hesitation is our every day’s game
Is this the land that God’s condemned?

Sippin’ up your lunch-break coffee by the windowpane
Too many plans left to update
You can’t wait to have the sun down again
To get the hell out of this cage
Hoping someone starts the revolution
Man, you know that we could be the ones
What the representatives said’s not about the constitution
They’re just protecting what they won

All this time we’re blind
All this time…

You could have been something greater with your balanced brain
The same old line from all your mates
You said, “Why should bother I’ve got ‘dollar’ to repel the pain?”
You spit it out as your defense
To be what we want is everyone’s dream
Man, you know with passion we might win
How many more lies that should blind our eyes?
We can do something to our life

All this time we’re blind

Tiap Senja

Bilakah kau menepi di labuhku?
Bilakah kau menjauh?
Membentang kau jelas di sana, namun tak teraih
Kau tak datang pun tak pergi

Riak-riak berlabuh di pantaiku
Darahku kian menderu
Sadari tak jelas disana, apakah karenamu?
Kau tak nyata pun tak semu

Tidakkah cinta berkuasa?
Tak mestinya luka menghentikan langkah
Bila saatnya, hadapilah

Bilakah kau menepi di labuhku?
Bilakah kau menjauh?
Membentang kau jelas di sana, namun tak teraih
Kau tak datang pun tak pergi

Tidakkah bimbang menyiksamu
Masih banyak pulau yang dapat kau temu
Sejenak saja, hampiriku!

Riak-riak berlabuh di pantaiku
Darahku kian menderu
Berharap ‘kan jelas disana, hanyalah karenamu
Tiap senja di labuhku

Menepilah!

Tiap Senja

Sementara

Sementara… teduhlah, hatiku
Tidak lagi jauh
Belum saatnya kau jatuh
Sementara… ingat lagi mimpi
Juga janji-janji
Jangan kau ingkari lagi

Percayalah, hati
Lebih dari ini pernah kita lalui
Jangan henti disini

Sementara… lupakanlah rindu
Sadarlah, hatiku
Hanya ada kau dan aku
Dan, sementara… akan kukarang cerita
Tentang mimpi jadi nyata
Untuk asa kita berdua

Percayalah, hati
Lebih dari ini pernah kita lalui
Takkan lagi kita mesti jauh melangkah
Nikmatilah lara

Untuk sementara saja

Too Much This Way

No star-gazing late at night
And no candle light
No French-speaking, no moonlight
It just came out right

No wondering words to say
And no music play
It’s just simply found today
Love’s too much this way

Beauty’s what I’ve found in you
And true romance, too
There won’t be just “I love you”
What I’ll say to you

No pretending to be nice
I won’t need it twice
I will go and tell all the guys
About the magic in your eyes

No star-gazing late at night
And no candle light
No French-speaking, no moonlight
It just came out right

Beauty’s what I’ve found in you
And true romance, too
There won’t be just “I love you”
What I’ll say to you

No wondering words to say
And no music play
It’s just simply found today
Love’s too much this way

Love’s too much this way

It takes no moon, it takes no sunshine
And neither June with the bluest skies
She wore no perfume, I brought no wine

My love is hers, her love is mine

Time

Lie down and get lazy
Set all of your senses free
This is the time

Gather all thoughts, let go
Fill up your mind with this flow
This is the time

Tomorrow’s not a day
It’s not yet ours, anyway
Now is our time

It’s time to start, it’s time to stop
It’s time for bright, it’s time for dark

Lie down and get lazy
Set all of your senses free
This is the time
Lie down and get lazy
Set all of your senses free
This is the time

Some things to learn, some to unlearn
Some points to turn, some to return

Gather all thoughts, let go
Fill up your mind with this flow
This is the time

Tomorrow’s not a day
It’s not yet ours, anyway
Now is our time

You’ll Have Your Band’s Name On The Wall

You’ll have your band’s name on the wall
You’ll celebrate, you’ll stand so tall
You’ve got much more than you think you could learn from MTV
You’ll be a brand new addiction
You’ll even make generation
The crime will stop just to watch you playing “ABC”

Kill some more time now… keep the thrill
Take some more sleep now…
Don’t play it safe… play it free!

People will write your history
And put your songs on theories
Some even think the lyrics that you wrote are prophecy
You’ll always feel “je ne sais quoi
You’ll always get euphoria
You fool around, still it makes some money for your mum

Kill some more time now… keep the thrill
Take some more sleep now…

Don’t play it safe… play it free!
