In a hotel room

There was a moment in March
When suddenly all memories came out
We saw each other like we’ve been apart
and we didn’t feel like doing any stuff

“Kids are all right”, you said
“and we’re tired of chasing”
“we’re not worried of everything but now we’re hiding”
“for a moment please, don’t say anything”
“we’re off for looking, just take sometime off of facing”
“This linen bed we’re embracing, wouldn’t say anything”
“it would say nothing”

It was in the middle of March
a quite place on earth suddenly came out
with a wide window where the sun light spread out
with a perfect blanket and all paints were white
“Kids are alright, you said”
“but how about us?”

Ganesha dan Bougenville merah muda

Bisik mimpi kita kumandangkan satu-satu
Di sepanjang jalan Ganesha
Di bawah Bougenville merah muda.
Muda dan sumringah kita,
Angkuh akan ilmu yang tak seberapa

Bisik mimpi kita bagi satu-satu
Lewat asa yang menderu
Di tujuan yang belum tentu..
Muda dan ceroboh kita,
Tawalah yang jadi nomor satu

Bisik mimpi kita tukar di keintiman
Dalam hangat pertemanan
Dalam obrolan tak terbeban
Dalam lelucon kekanakan..

Muda dan bersemangat kita,
Apapun kita buru
Bisik mimpi kini terwujud satu-satu
di kepergian kalian satu per satu
Jalan Ganesha sepi sendu
Bisikkan ku tawa yang lalu
di bawah bougenville yang menjelma ungu

Muda dan mendewasa kita,
Namun tak lagi menyatu..

-Bandung 21 Juni 2011-

Dedicated to Ganesha Troops.. Miss y’all 🙂

Cook For You

I am not a cook
but i’ll cook for you
I know i can’t sing
but i’ll sing for you

I am not a cook
But i’ll cook for you
I know it won’t taste that good
But i’ll still cook for you

I know i am not a cook
but i can be one for you
like i will sing for you
while i cook for you

Fainted

Like I always say,

if tomorrow is Monday,
We don’t need to hurry, like, hey!
And I am alone with my mind away,
Doing this.. like a ghost today

And i still do this somehow,
No matter i struggle to stand, but how?
I am not living this world alone, am I?
And with my things, you’ll not be so wowed
And this is my self right now

Like I always say,

if tomorrow is the day,
I’ll leave all these right away
This is my dream anyway
No need to worry by the way

Genius

I am in love with a genius
who never talk too serious
and always act ridiculous
but pray like spirituous

I am in love with a genius
who lost his mind like a fool
in love with a girl from school
whose eyes are so cool

I am in love with a genius
whose thought is tremendous
whose manner is miraculous
may bad, i took his words too serious

Fighter

I wanna tell my kids story about the fire
Which lives in a heart of a dreamer whose eyes are sparkle
I wanna tell my kids story of their mother
Whose heart once burned of becoming a failure

No, no.. my dear, you ain’t gonna do the same
The path you’ll make, matter things you’ll gain
No, no.. my dear, you ain’t gonna lose that flame
The step you’ll take, worth everything that pain

I wanna tell my kids story about a dreamer
Who once fell and rose up without any hesitation
Whose skies once dark but skin got thicker
Who did beyond and made revolution

No, no my dear.. don’t be so surprise
You’ll do great things and shine like stars
Though you may find it hard in so many times
Mommy will be here to dry your eyes

I wanna tell my kids story about the fire
Which lives inside a heart of a fighter
And by its light it made everythings better

The one whom i can talk to

It’s been a while since the last time i talked like this to somebody,

And that somebody is not you

It’s been a while since the last time i laugh like this to somebody,

And that somebody is not you

Maybe it’s true,

Maybe it’s you

The only one whom i can talk to

Like maybe it’s me

It’s only me,

The one who can set you free

It’s been a while since we have each other,

And the only thing we have, is us

Sometimes i still long for a friend outside us

But I know, this is a blessing in disguise

Honest

If you find it’s difficult to meet me there,

And if you find it’s hard to learn my way,

Don’t worry..

I am just tryin’ to be honest

If you find my words are sometimes rude,

And you think that it isn’t good,

Don’t be fooled..

I am just tryin’ to be honest

It doesn’t seem that simple,

When you think the world is crumbled,

And songs you sing sounds indescribable,

All you got to do is to stay honest

And I am not the girl who you think is cute,

With my words, there i stood

I am not tryin’ to be good,

…….

I am just tryin’ to be honest
