All I Ever Wanted

Now I understand. All the time I waited, all my faded plans, every single tragedy was leading up to someone that loves me like you. In a world full of broken promises, you were my portrait of truth.” –Faith Hill, All I Ever Wanted (OST. Life As We Know It)


Faith Hill, penyanyi solo wanita asal Amerika Serikat, menyumbangkan suara emasnya untuk mengisi jajaran soundtrack film “Life As We Know It”. Lagu berjudul “All I Ever Wanted” ini terdapat dalam album “Life As We Know It: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”, yang dirilis pada tanggal 5 Oktober 2010. Lagu ini diciptakan oleh komposer Ryan Tedder. “All I Ever Wanted” adalah sebuah lagu pop ballad yang menonjolkan vokalitas kuat milik Faith Hill.
Lagu ini mengisahkan tentang seseorang yang pada akhirnya menemukan pasangan jiwa dan kebahagiaan, setelah melalui perjalanan panjang beserta rasa sakit dan luka. Kata orang, great thing takes time. Setelah seluruh luka, setelah semua kesakitan, setelah seluruh rasa kesepian, setelah semua kesendirian, setelah segala yang telah ia lalui, pada akhirnya ia menemukan labuhan tempat hatinya bertambat. Some things are worth waiting for. Dan terkadang tanpa kita sadari, sesuatu yang selalu kita tunggu sebenarnya ada di dekat kita selama ini. Dengan seluruh waktu yang telah dijalani, masa lalu yang kelam, ketika pada akhirnya seseorang menemukan apa yang mereka cari maka mereka akan menghargainya lebih dari apapun juga. Karena mereka pernah merasakan pahitnya kehilangan dan pedihnya ditinggalkan. Dan cinta itu akan terasa jauh lebih indah dari apapun yang pernah ada.

“All I Ever Wanted” digunakan sebagai background music (BGM) dalam trailer film “Life As We Know It”. Selain itu, lagu ini juga muncul sebagai BGM credit title dalam film ini. Secara eksplisit, lagu ini merupakan pengiring dari kisah dua karakter utama dalam film tersebut, yaitu Holly Berenson (diperankan oleh Katherine Heigl) dan Eric Messer (diperankan oleh Josh Duhamel), di mana mereka akhirnya menemukan tambatan hati setelah pencarian panjang.

It took a little pain to find what I believe in, all I ever needed was you. Opened up my eyes, finally I’m seeing it, all I ever wanted, all I ever needed was you. I told his heart not to leave or lie. It took so long just to realize. All I ever wanted, all I ever needed was you.” –Faith Hill, All I Ever Wanted (OST. Life As We Know It)

“Opened up my heart, start to feel again
Take another step, now I understand
All the time I waited, all my faded plans
Every single tragedy was leading up to someone that loves me like you
In a world full of broken promises, you were my portrait of truth
And suddenly I confess

All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
All I ever wanted was you
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
All I ever needed was you
It took a little pain to find what I believe in
All I ever needed was you
Opened up my eyes, finally I’m seeing it
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed was you

I ignored the stars, each and every day
Don’t give them credit ‘cause all they ever did was bring me pain
Waited for a love, I didn’t have a name
You could call me crazy, but it’s all I had to keep me sane
And out of the darkness comes light and I feel like I'm staring at the sun
The shadow we cast feels so right, it took so many wrongs to find the way

All I needed was you

I played a part, acting like I knew just who you are
Traded every day that I can love anyone but you
I played a part, acting like it’s written in the stars
Loneliness was killing me enough, I said I can’t make it through

All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
It took a little pain to find what I believe in
All I ever needed was you
Opened up my eyes, finally I’m seeing it
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed was you
I told his heart not to leave or lie
It took so long just to realize
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed was you”
