Lyrics of Peterpan’s New Song Walau Habis TerangJuly 3, 2008
This song will be released as one of the tracks in their next album Sebuah Nama Sebuah Cerita (One name, One Story). The title of the song “Walau Habis Terang” reminds me to a book based on R.A. Kartini’s letters, “Habis Gelap Terbitlah Terang” (Out of Dark Comes Light). For non-Indonesians who don’t know who Kartini was, she was Indonesian leading feminist who died in 1904.
Walau Habis Terang
ku terbiasa tersenyum tenang
kaulah cerita tertulis dengan pasti
selamanya dalam pikiranku
ku kan tenang
dan kau kan pergi..
berjalanlah walau habis terang
ambil cahaya cinta ku terangi jalanmu
di antara beribu lainnya
kau tetap..kau tetap..

Ok, here is the literal translation. Sorry, I’m suck at it. If anybody can give me a better translation, I will be delighted.
Although the light has gone
I am used to smile calmly
although aarghhh my heart cries
You are a story, written definitely
always on my mind
Please, forget everything
Leave all behind
I will be in peace
and you can walk away
Please move on, although the light has gone
Take my light of love, to shine your way
Among the thousand others
You’re still the one
still the one, still the one
that shines brilliantly
