What’s true love? Okay, scratch that. What’s love, anyway? Twenty five years of living and I still haven’t got a clue about what is this thing called love. How do we know when we fall in love, when we feel the love? How do we? How can we? Have you ever felt, something like, when you meet someone, and you just feel it in all of a sudden, out of nowhere, that the person would somehow be a part of your life? Well, I have. Is it love? Can we call it love? I don’t know. All I know is that the feeling is true. Okay, this babbling actually leads to today’s song for Male Special Part 2: Ways of Being A Man. It’s titled “True”, performed by Ryan Cabrera. Apparently, not only a girl, like me, who can feel insecurities regarding to feelings, but also a man like Cabrera. Yet, at some point, people find willingness in the insecurities; and I personally think that it’s important for a man to be able to see that. Everything takes courage.

I won’t talk, I won’t breathe, I won’t move till you finally see that you belong with me. You might think I don’t look, but deep inside in the corner of my mind, I’m attached to you. I’m weak, it’s true, ‘cause I’m afraid to know the answer. Do you want me too? ‘Cause my heart keeps falling faster.” –Ryan Cabrera, True

“True” was released on November 16th 2004. It was served as the second single released from Ryan Cabrera’s debut major-label studio album, “Take It All Away”. The pop acoustic track was written by the American singer-songwriter himself, along with Jimmy Harry and Shep Solomon.

In the lyrics of “True”, Cabrera is wondering whether the girl he’s attracted to is feeling the same way about him. Do you remember the feeling when we got infatuated with someone in the first place? We were paralyzed, breathless; they called it lovesick. Unknowingly, we keep falling. And everyone is weak before their own feelings. “I won’t talk, I won’t breathe, I won’t move till you finally see that you belong with me. You might think I don’t look, but deep inside in the corner of my mind, I’m attached to you. I’m weak, it’s true, ‘cause I’m afraid to know the answer. Do you want me too? ‘Cause my heart keeps falling faster.” However, with the fluttering heart comes the fear. There are too many words left unsaid and questions left unanswered. “You don’t know what you do, everytime you walk into the room, I’m afraid to move. I’m weak, it’s true. I’m just scared to know the ending. Do you see me too? Do you even know you met me?”
I’ve mentioned above about the feeling when you meet someone, and you just feel it in all of a sudden, out of nowhere, that the person would somehow be a part of your life. You got infatuated. You’re feeling insecure, yet you’re willing to do anything to be with that person. Because at some point, though you cannot explain why you feel that way or what to call that kind of feeling, you know that the feeling is true. “I’ve waited all my life to cross this line, to the only thing that’s true. So I will not hide, it’s time to try anything to be with you. All my life I’ve waited, this is true.” For all people have the eagerness to see everything through, you know you ought to try. “I know when I go I’ll be on my way to you, the way that’s true.” Everything takes courage, even the most inexplicable feeling they called love. Be brave, cross the line, do not hide, try; that’s what a gentleman does. Well, write a song like this if you’re able to do it. It’s heartwarming.
I was first listening to this song when I was a teenager, and falling for it since the first time. Cabrera’s soft voice, the acoustic guitar sweet melody; this song is just addictive as drugs! “True” is a masterpiece, perhaps a one-hit wonder by Cabrera, but it’s surely everlasting.

I’ve waited all my life to cross this line, to the only thing that’s true. So I will not hide, it’s time to try anything to be with you. All my life I’ve waited, this is true.” –Ryan Cabrera, True






“I won’t talk, I won’t breathe, I won’t move till you finally see that you belong with me
You might think I don’t look, but deep inside in the corner of my mind, I’m attached to you
I’m weak, it’s true, ‘cause I’m afraid to know the answer
Do you want me too? ‘Cause my heart keeps falling faster

I’ve waited all my life to cross this line, to the only thing that’s true
So I will not hide, it’s time to try anything to be with you
All my life I’ve waited, this is true

You don’t know what you do, everytime you walk into the room, I’m afraid to move
I’m weak, it’s true, I’m just scared to know the ending
Do you see me too? Do you even know you met me?

I know when I go I’ll be on my way to you, the way that’s true”
