Baby I’m Not Like The Rest

Hmm…

A couple months ago my friend and I was talking about a part of the lyric in Demi Lovato’s song, ‘Give Your Heart A Break’.

What’s wrong with the lyric?

Nothing’s wrong, actually. We’re just talking about a line of the lyric. This is the line:

Now here we are,
So close yet so far.
Haven’t I passed the test?
When will you realize,
Baby, I’m not like the rest?

Nah, I emphasised the line with bold and italic format. This is about a word on the last part of the line, what’s that? Yeah, that’s the word “rest”.

At the beginning (from the first time I heard the song) I assumed that the word ‘rest’ here meant ‘the remaining part of something’ or ‘the remaining people or something; the others’. And I’d been believing in myself that it was true. Hahahaha…

But then, I met Mba Vita (my friend) who’s got different view from me. She thought that this word meant ‘cease work or movement in order to relax, sleep, or recover strength’, and in this song she assumed that Demi wanted to tell that she’s not a place to rest (temporary resting time). And we argued with our opinion about that word. She told me that there’s no other meaning of “rest” beside her opinion.

Nah, a couple minutes ago I found an article on the net and let’s see the passage, nope, sorry I mean the sentence….

Look at the yellow sentence. I’m sorry I marked it so it’s somehow become blurry.

I wanna ensure, especially for Mba Vita, that there’s another meaning for this word ('rest'). I think this sentence is so much clear that ‘the rest of the world’ means the remaining people or ‘the others’—- (who think same as the writer).

So back to ‘the rest’ in Demi’s lyric, what do you think the meaning of the word?

Is it fit enough (to the context of the song) use the meaning I stated firstly? or did Mba Vita use the proper meaning for the word?

I hope Mba Vita can gimme any comment.

Hehehehe….

Happiness

My happiness is simple, feeling your existence.

But who can deny separation?
No matter how big our love is, separation will be faced.

So let me feel your existence by hugging you or touching you or seeing you around or even just listening your voice.

I don’t care when we will face the separation, until that moment, I will record every memories of you and keep it safe in my mind (my heart).

Hug is just a hug. But sometimes, a hug is more than a hug. It moves mountains, ignites fires, and heals wounds.

I wanna hug you.
As the one who really care about you. at Raka’s Place – Read on Path.

Having lunch in Bakso Daging Sapi Bu Raden is really something.

I usually love this menu because it’s so tasty indeed, but now there’s another reason why I love this place.

It always remind me of someone who had lunch two bowl of Bakso (meatball) while I just had it half portion.

When you #travel #alone, forget your big heavy #DSLR and various lenses. The best companion is in your pocket.

And for a book lover like me, #juliah’sJihad is a perfect #book to kill the boredom.
