hello semua, i was wondering if someone could help me with some translating from a nidji song. I am well aware that a lot of the time lyrics from indonesian songs somtimes dont directly translate.

eg " cinta memang tak harus miliki "

i know the meaning of each word seperatlty, but i still cant make sense of what its really saying.

the meaning is: "you don't have to possess someone to love them"

Does that apply to Linda Blair in "The Exorcist" as well?

yep, my interpretation would be Love doesn't mean you have to be together...

I said apart from the "love" bit....dont believe in it anymore, just caused too many problems.

Example of trying to prove love.

I was married a long time ago (she has thanfully been dumped) and my then wife was always complaining that I was spending too much time drinking at the local bar. "You dont love me as much as you love your mates and the beer" she stated. I may add that she did not drink much!

I was trying to explain that this was not true and eventually, I suggested that she should accompany me, hoping to prove her wrong and that her views and my views on love could be reconciled.

"What'll you have?" I asked. "Oh, I don't know. The same as you, I suppose." was the reply.

I ordered two large whiskies. I drank mine in one gulp, while the ex took a small sip from the glass,and pulled a face and exclaimed: "It's disgusting! I don't know how you can drink this stuff."

Triumphantly I responded: "And all this time you thought I was enjoying myself!"

It all went downhill from then.......

the part that confuses me is " memang ". ive only ever used it to agree with somone, does memang mean somthing different here, or should like alot of other indonesian phrases, i not try to break it down and take it as an exression.

its actually there's nothing wrong with the word 'L' dilli, its ok to be a little sensitive about that matter . All i can say nothing is easy in this life, just because you failed once, you don't have to avoid the and curse the 'love'..... love

I heard he was nothing but a common queer. Cos he hangs out in queer bars like Eastern Primrose in Kemang, where Lens Terwee is always up for a jam. Except on naked quiz nights with Tia Lestari.
