We were walking to the basement when he asked,
"Sha, you tau tak lagu ni. Okay...you dengar I nyanyi ye..."
The moment I heard the melody, I smiled. That is my favourite song.
"Tajuk dia Tercipta Untukku, "I said.
"Siapa nyanyi?" he countered.
"Ungu," I replied.
And he started singing again. He was into the song. I looked at his gestures and wondered, if this man in front of me was in love, his girlfriend would definitely be a very lucky girl. I mean, I love the melody of the song. I thought that Pasha's voice was damn sexy and I wrote this in my posting called Cinta Dalam Hati last year. Besides, the lyrics was simple and marvelous. A nice way of expressing love when you feel it.
"Nak download la lagu ni," he said.
"Sha ada lagu nieh. Nantilah, Sha bagi," he was still humming.
"Best pulak lagu nieh," he smiled when he said that. Yes, the guy was in love.
"Ada dua version, Sha ada version dengan Rossa. Yang tu untuk soundtrack Ayat-ayat Cinta. Nak yang tu ke?"
"Boleh je..." and we walked to the car.
The topic was closed.
The next day
"Sha, nak lagu Ungu dengan Rossa tu, " he said.
And I gave him the file. The moment I did, I heard him singing again. I smiled but my smile wavered after a while. Twinge of jealousy crept through my veins. Wowwww...he must be thinking of something if he remembered his request. Perhaps, he wanted to give it to his girlfriend? Uiiiyooo...the girl must be very very special! How I wished I could be like her!
Because something happened last year...
I sang the song.
"Lagu apa you nyanyi ni, yang?" my boyfriend asked me.
"Tercipta Untukku," I replied.
"Lagu Indon?" he asked.
"Yup! Ungu...I memang suka lagu-lagu band ni, " then I continued singing.
"Boringlah. Jiwang semacam je..." he said.
"Dah nama pun lagu, B..." I was hurt. He didn't get the point. He didn't pay attention to the lyrics.
"Tukarlah...tukarlah...takmo lagu ni, " he said while pressing the buttons.
David Gueta filled the space.
My romantic hopes were gone in ashes.
And something happened last Saturday...
"Sekarang dijemput saudara Mohd Ridz untuk menyampaikan lagu yang bertajuk Tercipta Untukku. Lagu ini ditujukan khas untuk pasangan pengantin dari rakan-rakan mereka."
The sound of my friend's macho voice filled the Grand Ballroom. I looked across the tables and I saw his wife smiling. Wooowww...another lucky girl. The screen showed the images of the bride and her groom. The bridegroom smiled knowingly at his bride while they were listening to the song. My friend was a blushing bride. She was indeed a lucky girl too!
Three lucky girls.
One man requested the song I downloaded earlier.
One man sang the song in the wedding while looking at his wife.
A bridegroom looked meaningfully at his bride while listening to the song.
I was not that lucky, don't you think?
While I smelled the sweet scented fresh lavender roses in the wedding I attended last Saturday, I wished that I was rich. The roses were making me happy! The theme of the wedding was my favourite coulour. I touched the petals - wishing that I could drown myself in it. If I was rich, I would order a pool of it!
Or perhaps I can just pay Pasha Ungu to sing for me;P
