Baru semalam tahu lagu ini dari sebuah radio. Sepertinya familiar. Entahlah. Liriknya begitu menyayat.

Judul dan penyanyinya baru tahu kemudian dari sebuah aplikasi. Ternyata lagu yang dirilis tahun 2013. Gak lama-lama amat.

I’d like to say we gave it a try
I’d like to blame it all on life
Maybe we just weren’t right,
But that’s a lie,
That’s a lie

And we can deny it as much as we want
But in time our feelings will show
‘Cause sooner or later, we’ll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost
Almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me
The way I wanted you
Then maybe we wouldn’t be two worlds apart
But right here in each others arms

And we almost
We almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

If I could change the world overnight
There’d be no such thing as goodbye
You’ll be standing right where you were
And we’d get the chance we deserve

Try to deny it as much as you want
But in time our feelings will show
‘Cause sooner or later, we’ll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost
Almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me
The way I wanted you, oh
Then maybe we wouldn’t be two worlds apart
But right here in each others arms

And we almost
We almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

~Ariana Grande – Almost is Never Enough

Nyaris. Tapi nyaris saja tak cukup. Jika kesempatan pernah datang pada saat tak terduga, tetapi kita mengingkarinya sebagai sebuah kesempatan, layakkah kemudian kita masih menantikan kesempatan lainnya?

Seperti orang tolol, saya menjawab iya.
