Oh Bulan! by Kembara

I love this song, it is so “Keroncong”. Oh bulan by Kembara was written by M.Nasir. Just as the malay saying,

” Bagaikan pungguk rindu kan bulan”, or the translation, I am not sure the direct translation, probably something like ‘just like the owl misses the moon’ means hoping for something which you can never get, or hoping for that special love which you unlikely will get.  Just enjoy. This is among the best masterpiece Kembara as a group has produced.

 

 

Oh bulan!

Di manakah bunga impianku
Haruskah ku tunggu
Hingga dikau layu

Alunan suaramu memanggil
Ingin ku mencapai
Tercarik duri

Oh bulan berikan cahaya
Agar terang malam
Tatkala ku rindu

Oh bulan lihatlah hamba
Yang hidup sendiri
Di dalam sepi

Oh bulan berikan cahaya
Terangilah jalan
Yang aku lalui

Oh bulan lihatlah hamba
Ingin ku sentuhi
Wajahmu kasih

Di manakah bunga impianku
Haruskah ku tunggu
Hingga dikau layu

Alunan suaramu memanggil
Ingin ku mencapai
Tercarik duri

Oh bulan berikan cahaya
Agar terang malam
Tatkala ku rindu

Oh bulan lihatlah hamba
Yang hidup sendiri
Di dalam sepi

 

 

Just enjoy the malay folk song.. so intricate!

 

and this one!
