Lyrics Illusi Satu Penantian by Ben Nathan (A waiting illusion)

by Yin on August 27, 2013

Our Independance Day (Hari Merdeka) would fall on 31 August.  We are reminded once again of how independance is won and Malaya and later Malaysia was born.

I grew up during the era where music is enjoyed and we listened to each other’s songs without looking at creek or race. We’ve had very popular non Malay singers like Ben Nathan, Casey, Elaine Kang and Franscissca Peter singing out soulful Malay songs- even winning the Juara Lagu. Music were played by orchestra lead by musical instrument players from all races.

My favourite songs are a little old (coz I myself am old :) ) but for this Independance Day, I would like to translate and publish some of them. Let’s start with the song from Ben Nathan …

Lyrics/Lirik of Illusi Satu Penantian by Ben Nathan (A waiting illusion)

 

Saat ini aku rindu
This moment I would miss
 Biar pun kau ada di depan ku
Even though you are in front of me
 Saat-saat begini terluka hati ku
Such moments my heart is so hurt
 Ku pendamkan saja di jiwa ku
I just keep it supressed in my soul
 
Saat ini kau dan aku
This moment you and me
 Hanya diam dan terus membisu
Only keeping quiet and continue to be in silence
 Sebak rasa dada ku kau buat begitu
My chest felt pained (when) you do this
 Tahukah kau aku sayang pada mu
Do you know how much I love you
 
Kadangkala dapat ku rasakan
Sometimes I could feel
 Hadirnya diriku tidak diperlukan
My presence is not needed
 Rasa duka mencengkam di jiwa
Feelings of sadness grasp my soul
 Ku nanti jawapan katakanlah sayang
I am waiting for answer- say it my love
 
Hingga kini ku menanti
Till now I am waiting
 Jawaban mu yang tiada pasti
For your answer that is uncertain
 Apakah kau takut untuk menyayangi
Is it you are afraid to love
 Atau pun terhadap ku kau benci
Or towards me that you hate
 
Hingga kini ku menanti
till now I am waiting
 Jawaban mu yang tiada pasti
For your answer that is uncertain
 Saat-saat begini cuba kau fahami
Such moments please try to understand
 Perasaan hati ku kepada mu
My heart’s feelings towards you
 Agar berakhir penantian ku
so that my waiting is over
