Hi there, I want to translate this following text. I am learning BI slowly, but its not really good enough for a proper translation of this text who can help? this is what i thought so far.. im a bit confused ! smile

Masih ku merasa angkuh >I still feel a bit arrogant
Terbang kenanganku jauh >flying thinking back far
Langit kan menangkapku >heaven arrested
Walau kan terjatuh > stil it happened

Dan bila semua tercipta
Hanya untukku merasakan
Semua yang tercipta
Hampa hidup terasa

Lelah tatapku mencari
Arti untukku membagi
Menemani langkahku
Namun tak berarti

Dan bila semua tercipta
Tanpa harus ku merasakan
Cinta yang tersisa
Hampa hidup terasa

Reff:
Bagai bintang di surga
Dan seluruh warna
Dan kasih yang setia
Dan cahaya nyata

Oh bintang di surga
Berikan cerita
Dan kasih yang setia
Dan cahaya nyata

Masih ku merasa angkuh still, Iím feeling arrogant
Terbang kenanganku jauh my memoryís flying far
Langit kan menangkapku heaven will catch me
Walau kan terjatuh even if I/it fall(s)

Dan bila semua tercipta And if everything is created
Hanya untukku merasakan only for me to experience
Semua yang tercipta All which has been created
Hampa hidup terasa feels like lifeís emptiness

Lelah tatapku mencari weary still I search
Arti untukku membagi the meaning for me to share
Menemani langkahku accompanying my steps
Namun tak berarti but itís meaningless

Dan bila semua tercipta and if everything is created
Tanpa harus ku merasakan without me having to feel
Cinta yang tersisa the remainder of love
Hampa hidup terasa feels like lifeís emptiness


Reff:
Bagai bintang di surga just like stars in heaven(above)
Dan seluruh warna and all the colours
Dan kasih yang setia and love thatís faithful
Dan cahaya nyata and a shining light

Oh bintang di surga oh stars in heaven
Berikan cerita give(us) a story
Dan kasih yang setia and love thatís faithful
Dan cahaya nyata and a shining light

Mind you, song lyrics were the enemy of my Guru Bahasa Indonesia in highschool, a lot of them donít make much sense and a big no no grammatically..

(big chunk of the words probably exist only for the purpose to please the tunes)

Can someone translate one of my favourites into Bahasa.

Frigging in the Rigging - Sex Pistols

Twas on the good ship Venus
By Fuck you should have seen us..
The figurehead was a whoe in bed
With her mouth around my penis......

Thanks chocolatea! This helped me alot! Also in my quest of learning bahasa indonesia! Because I thought already it was abit strange how the words are combined in this song. (but I thought it was just only my poor level in bahasa indonesia.)

Im doing a written course at the moment and Im still working my way through the first chapters, so level is not to high yet, although i progress quick i think. smile
