Blinded (When I See You) – Third Eye Blind

Kembali ke tahun 1997, Third Eye Blind pertama kali dikenali oleh hit single-nya “Semi Charmed Life”. Album perdananya waktu itu memiliki banyak lagu bagus, seperti “Narcolepsy”, “Jumper” dan “How It’s Gonna Be”. Di side B, saya menyukai lagu “Motorcycle Drive By”.

Vokal dari Stephan Jenkins mempunyai aksen yang sangat khas dengan pengucapan lirik yang terbilang cepat. Musik band ini termasuk rock alternatif yang cukup kencang namun dengan nuansa yang ceria.

Lagu yang saya pilih berikut ini diambil dari album Out of The Vein (2003). Liriknya mengisahkan seorang pria yang sedemikian terpesona dengan seorang wanita, sehingga seolah-olah “terbutakan” (blinded) 🙂

Just an old friend coming over now to visit you and
That’s what I’ve become
I let myself in though I know I’m not supposed to but
I never know when I’m done

And I see you fogging up the mirror
Vapor round your body glistens in the shower
And I want to stay right here and go down on you for an hour
Or stay, and let the day just fade away
In wild dedication, take the moment of hope
And let it run, and never look back at all the damage we have done now
To each other… 3x

But when I see you, it’s like I’m staring down the sun
And I’m blinded
There’s nothing left to do
Still I see you

I never believed that things they happen for a reason and
They never go as planned
I wanted to thank you for a vision that was lost that you returned but
You’re passed do you understand

Now her appetite is blown, little else is known
Except she’s a little angry, grabs a towel and looks away
And heat fades with the day
And I fall down on what to say,
Oh something clean let me be clever
Hey oh well whatever
But that’s not what I mean
When where we’ve been has left us burned
Still I won’t turn now from a fight you know I’ll never win

So when I see you, you know all the things I’ve done
Well I’m blinded
Like I’m staring down the sun
When I see you… 3x
It’s like I’m staring down the sun

(Hey… I’m blinded 2x)

Time passes and it tells us what we’re left with
We become the things we do
Me I’m a fool, spent from defiance, yeah you got me but
I didn’t give up on you

Icarus is not a tee shirt or a swan song, no
He is born again and it’s not easy being me
But I can’t promise I will mend or bend
When you believe that we are fixed now from our birth
And I’ve just fallen back to earth
Still you know I’ll try again
Cause I believe that we are lucky
We are golden we’re stolen manners
In the days when we were one

So when I see you, despite all that we’ve become
I’m still blinded
But I’m still staring down the sun
When I see you… 4x
(Oh yeah … yeah…)
I’m still staring down the sun.. 3x

I’m blinded
When I see you
