Ada yang tak mampu kulupa
bulu lembut di keningmu
yang meremang kala kukecup
dan ketika kusibak rambutmu

Ada yang tak hendak kubuang
serangkaian kenang-kenangan
yang tergambar di gelap malam
dan tersimpan di pucuk daunan

Langit di atas simpang jalan
menemaniku bernyanyi
bagai gejolak pohonan runtuh
bersama gitar bersama sepi
bersama luka dan cinta
aku masih sempat bernyanyi lagi

Ada yang mesti kupikir lagi
melepas dendam dan sakit hati
dan berjuang membendung benci
Tuhan, jagalah tanganku ini

-Ebiet G. Ade-

 

A good friend of mine will know that Ebiet is one of my all-time favourite Indonesian singer. I learnt to write poems through Ebiet’s songs and this song has one of the most beautiful lyrics written by Ebiet. This song also reminds me of someone I love, someone who I can not ever forget for even a second. It is like I’m infected with this game of love. I really like her, I want her, I know I need to move but I just don’t know how and all I can do is wait. She is there and here in my mind and I can not afford to forget this love.

 

I love doubleyou.
