Jarak (Distance)
on: September 04, 2017, 00:34:44
Hi everyone,
This is my new song, it's in Indonesian language, but I wrote you the translation as well.
The song influenced a lot by power ballads / romantic ballads
Maybe not a great one but I tried my best  ;D
It's very difficult for me to translate the exact feeling of the original language, so sorry if it's weird in English.

JARAK / DISTANCE

Jarak jauh hubungan ini / This long distance relationship
Seolah-olah / As if
Ku harus terus mengalah / I always have to give in
Padahal disaat kau merindukan aku / But when you missed me
Di sini di hati / There in your heart
Kau kan menemukanku / You will find me

Pilihanmu sungguh egois / Your decision is selfish
Seolah-olah / As if
Ku harus mengalah lagi / Again, I have to give in
Tetapi apapun kujalani untukmu / But I'll do anything for you
Betapa dalamnya / Oh how deep (is)
Cintaku padamu / My love to you

Reff: / Chorus:
Saat kau / When you
Menatapku / Stare at me
Saat itupun aku tau apa maksudmu / I know what you mean
Jangan kau / Don’t you
Mendustai / lie (to)
Hatimu / Your heart
Bila memang jarak ini sulit / If this distance is difficult
Jangan lagi kita bersama / Don’t we be together again

This is a beautiful song.

Honestly, I do not want a translation as yourrendition in Indonesian takes me where your song wants me to go already.

You have an amazing voice and this is a very good production in every regard.

A great voice with real emotion in it. By 2 minutes 10 secs the song really begins to soar.

Good Job   ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Great production and vocal performance. Definitely stands up to others in its genre I would have thought, and really nice to hear the Indonesian language in a song for a change.
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Ooooh @Dynofficial , that's long time no see! Martimedia speaking here  ;)
What a beautiful track.. MAN!! Thanks for the translation as well, at least we can have an idea what the lyrics mean in this way.
Man you can sing! And I love the production, sounds professional to me! Did you record this all by yourself? And do you play all those instruments?
I'm amazed!
Well done!

I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams
