The Song is "Homesick" by Kings of Convenience.
Recently, I've been whacked by continuous waves of "what went wrong" and "how to manage my life" thoughts. Yea it's not strange actually since I'm now on my quarter life crisis. Also the fact that I'm writing this on 23.00 o'clock means that I'm on my contemplating hours (start from 22.00 to 02.00). That's why I'm trying hard to sleep early at 21.00 to avoid that.
Surprisingly, in such uncomfortable moment, Homesick popped in my mind. I like KOC but I believe that the last time I heard them was 2010 or when I was still in University. Never heard them eversince due to my formatted hard drive which contained GBs of musics. Such a right timing for a wrong time I would say.
Let's go to the lyrics. I don't know who's going to read this and I don't know whether the reader has same perception with me. I bold the words which can make me feel headache just to read that let alone think about that. Now here we go:
I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy,
but I can't stop listening to the sound
of two soft voices
blended in perfection
from the reels of this record that I've found.
Every day there's a boy in the mirror asking me...
What are you doing here?
Finding all my previous motives
growing increasingly unclear.
I've traveled far and I've burned all the bridges
I believed as soon as I hit land
all the other options held before me,
would wither in the light of my plan.
So I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy,
but there's only one thing on my mind
searching boxes underneath the counter,
on a chance that on a tape I'd find...
a song for someone who needs somewhere to long for.
Because I no longer know where home is.
Thank you, Kings of Convenience. What a way to remind me something important in such inconvenient way.
