Superheroes

All the life she has seen
All the meaner side of me
They took away the prophet’s dream
For a profit on the street

Now she’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

All his life he’s been told
He’ll be nothing when he’s old
All the kicks and all the blows
He won’t ever let it show

‘Cause he’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power

Oh-oh, oh, oh
Oh-oh, oh, oh

All the hurt, all the lies
All the tears that they cry
When the moment is just right
You see fire in their eyes

‘Cause he’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power

When you’ve fighting for it all your life
You’ve been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power (power, power, power, power, power)

(Power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour turn the pain into power
(Power, power, power, power)

(Power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour turn the pain into power

She’s got lions in her heart
A fire in her soul he’s a got a beast
In his belly that’s so hard to control
‘Cause they’ve taken too much hits, taking blow by blow
Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode

She’s got lions in her heart
A fire in her soul he’s a got a beast
In his belly that’s so hard to control
‘Cause they’ve taken too much hits, taking blow by blow
Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s a how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power

When you’ve fighting for it all your life
You’ve been working every day and night
That’s a how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power (power, power, power, power, power)

Oh, yes (power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power
(Power, power, power, power) Ooh, yeah
Whoa (power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly

Well, sudah menjelang akhir 2014. Menurut saya pribadi selama tahun 2014, inilah lagu dan video klip terbaik. Ini adalah salah satu single dalam album keempat The Script, No Sound Without Silence. Videonya disutradarai oleh Vaughan Arnell (orang yang sama yang menyutradarai video klip Millenium-nya Robbie Williams), dibuat di Johannesburg, Afrika Selatan dan pertama kali dirilis pada 04 Agustus 2014.

In my opinion (halah, gubrak… 😀 ), video klip ini menceritakan perjuangan seorang ayah yang rela melakukan hal yang paling sulit sekalipun demi membahagiakan keluarganya. Serta menggambarkan realita kehidupan di negara dunia ketiga (negara berkembang seperti halnya Indonesia negeri kita tercinta ini) dimana sebagian besar rakyatnya masih hidup dalam kemiskinan. Walaupun miskin, mereka tetap menjalani kehidupan mereka. Walau hidupnya tertatih-tatih, mungkin karena hal tersebut judul lagu ini “Superheroes”.

Yup, pahlawan super. Mereka yang rela melakukan hal-hal terbaik demi kepentingan orang yang lebih banyak walau harus menjalani kehidupan yang tidak nyaman bagi diri mereka sendiri.
