As, Ada Yang Baru Tahu Kalau Ini Lagu Milik Stevie Wonder?

As ditulis, dinyanyikan, dan dirilis oleh Stevie Wonder pada tahun 1976 bersama album 'Songs in the Key of Life'. Lagu ini sukses pada masanya meski di tangga lagu hanya berhasil meraih posisi 36, baik di Billboard Hot 100 dan Black Singles chart. Malah, keberuntungan dipegang oleh George Michael.



Yup, George yang merilisnya dua dekade kemudian mendapatkan sukses ekstra. Bersama Mary J Blige, tahun 1999, George membuat cover version-nya, dan sukses besar. Meski itu pun hanya di Inggris, karena memang tak rilis di Amerika Serikat. Lagu ini berhasil masuk top ten UK pop hit. As dapat ditemukan di album George bertajuk 'Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael.'


As berkisah tentang bahwa mencintai itu berhasil mengatasi segala kemustahilan. Lagu ini juga sekaligus menunjukkan kepedulian penulis lirik terhadap persoalan kemanusiaan.

As Around The Sun The Earth Know She's Revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
Just as hate knows love's the cure
You can rest your mind assured that
I'll be loving you always

As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older everyday
Just as all that's born is new
You know what I say is true
That I'll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out of the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the day that 8 times 8 times 8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more

Did you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

As today I know I'm living but tomorrow
Could make me the past
But that I mustn't fear
I know deep in my mind
The love of me I've left behind
Cause I'll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8 times 8 times 8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more

Did you know that true love asks for nothing?
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
For now I know deep in my mind
The love of me I've left behind
Cause I'll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8 times 8 time 8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more
