Watch over you

Lagi terharu dengan lagu Alter Bridge yang satu ini:

Leaves are on the ground
Fall has come
Blue skies turning grey
Like my love

I tried to carry you
And make you whole
But it was never enough
I must go

Chorus:
Who is gonna save you
When I’m gone?
Who’ll watch over you
When I’m gone?

You say you care for me
But hide it well
How can you love someone
And not yourself?

(Chorus)

And when I’m gone
Who will break your fall?
Who will you blame?
I can’t go on
And let you lose it all
It’s more than I can take
Who’ll ease your pain?
Ease your pain

Who is gonna save you
When I’m gone?
Who’ll watch over you?
Who will give you strength
When you’re not strong?
Who’ll watch over you when I’ve
Gone away?

Snow is on the ground
Winter’s come
You long to hear my voice
But I’m long gone

Makna lagu ini versi saya: tentang sepasang kekasih, di mana sang wanita menjadi terlalu egois sehingga sang pria terpaksa meninggalkannya, meskipun sebenarnya ia masih sangat mencintai sang wanita.

Versi Myles Kennedy (vokalis Alter Bridge, yang bikin lagu ini): sang wanita adalah pecandu narkoba. Sang pria selama ini selalu membantunya agar menjauhi narkoba sialan itu, namun sang wanita selalu jatuh kembali. Sang pria tidak kuat lagi harus selalu ‘menanggung’ sang wanita, sehingga memutuskan untuk pergi meskipun sebenarnya ia masih mencintai sang wanita.
