When You Look In My Eyes

(casting our minds back to 11 years ago, in 1994, when your pal here was at his prime of cuteness and innocence *run for your life! :P* while he still proudly wore the high-school uniform, on the first grade to be exact.

this song was on the top of playlists in many radios in indonesia, and i got smitten by it, so much so that i bought the cassette *CD was a luxury at that time*, and played it over and over again, not really giving a thought that it would only shorten the life of the cassette and until now, i’ve never seen the cassette again! 😀

but thanks to the advancement of technology, mp3s are widely, illegally available to download, i managed to find this lovely song again. you bet, it ranks as the most frequently played song on my iTunes now.

i wonder if any of you are familiar w/ the song, so for those who are not, this is called ‘when you look in my eyes’, written by this jazz great jay graydon, featured on his album ‘airplay for the planet’.

hey, if you ever came across this song before, and one of those people who often requested this song to be played in radios more than a decade ago, this song is for you all.
t, the lyric is about you.)

Though I was through with love
Thought it was over
Didn’t need what I needed before

The neverending story
Had an ending after all
And it hurts you when you fall

Guess I didn’t believe enough
Didn’t think it could happen
I gave up on myself long ago

Love had me believing
Then it turned and closed the door
I couldn’t trust it anymore

While I’m beginning to doubt my doubts
And I’m losing faith in my faithlessness
All the grey above is clearing
Becoming blue skies
When you look in my eyes

But here in reality
It gets so confusing
Why are old habits hard to break
My heart’s afraid of losing
So I haven’t played the game
It always seems to end the same

But I’m beginning to doubt my doubts
And I’m losing faith in my faithlessness
All the grey above is clearing
Becoming blue skies

I’m beginning to feel again
And I’m losing what’s left of my thoughtlessness
The sun has begun to come out
In my life
When you look in my eyes

You gave me something more
It’s like I never love before

But I’m beginning to doubt my doubts
And I’m losing faith in my faithlessness
All the grey above is clearing
Becoming blue skies

I’m beginning to feel again
And I’m losing what’s left of my thoughtlessness
The sun has begun to come out
In my life

When you look in my eyes

Lenggang Puspita

(gara-gara si sayid dah mulai nyari2 koreografi buat acara IAF nanti, secara ga sengaja gue mulai dengerin lagu-lagu yang cocok buat konsep musikal kita ini, dan akhirnya setelah ubek2 koleksi cd mp3 hasil download-an selama kuliah *Mela, sesama mantan AudioGalaxy addict dilarang saling nyela! :D*, akhirnya nemu juga lagu ini … Lenggang Puspita by Achmad Albar!

kebayang ga kalo Achmad Albar sebelum gabung ama God Bless dan merit ama Rini Subono, sebelum akhirnya cerai, adalah seorang artis Swara Mahardika yang entah pas jaman 70-an apa namanya dah SM. dan lucu juga ngebayangin pak rocker ini juga nyanyi lagu dangdut Zakia *aduh, punya gue ilang! help!*, trus maen pelem Si Doel Anak Modern bareng (alm.) Benyamin S. ama Christine Hakim. not bad acting loh! lucu aja ngeliat kribo-nya dulu lebih gede dibanding sekarang, hihihihihi … aduh Rio, Pram, Agus, gue ngga bermaksud mengambil mahkota ketuwiran kalian koq dengan tau dikit2 ilmu pengetahuan populer tahun 70-an ini , hohohohoho!

ya udah, enjoy lagu ini deh, gue dah mulai goyang pagi2 gini sebelum ntar latian *khusyu’ ngapalin script* :D)

Jalan berlenggang lenggok gemulai
Langkah nan anggun tinggi semampai
Diantara rerumpunan bambu
Kudengar derai tawamu

Wajah berbinar-binar ceria
Senyum manis menghiasi senja
Diantara bunga-bunga rindu
Kucium harum nafasmu

Oh dara
Kemana kau pergi melangkah
Juwita
Tahukah kau hatiku resah
Oh dara
Mengapa kau terus melangkah
Juwita
Mengapa ku tak berdaya
