Yuna - Terukir Di Bintang




This is a very beautiful song by Yuna, a young Malaysian singer and song-writer.
I love this song which is presented in a classical way. It's entitled "Terukir Di Bintang", literally, Engraved In the Star.

Here's the lyrics in Bahasa Malaysia :

Jika engkau minta intan permata tak mungkin ku mampu
Tapi sayangkan ku capai bintang dari langit untukmu
Jika engkau minta satu dunia akan aku coba
Ku hanya mampu jadi milikmu pastikan kau bahagia

Hati ini bukan milik ku lagi
Seribu tahun pun akan ku nanti
Kan... kamu...

Sayangku
Jangan kau persoalkan siapa dihatiku
Terukir di bintang tak mungkin hilang cintaku padamu

Hati ini bukan milik ku lagi
Seribu tahun pun akan ku nanti
Kan... kamu...

Sayangku
Jangan kau persoalkan siapa dihatiku
Terukir di bintang tak mungkin hilang cintaku padamu


I try to translate it, so literally, it would be lke this :

If you ask for diamonds, I can’t afford it
But my dear, I’ll pick the star in the sky for you
If you ask for one whole world, I’ll try
I’m only able to say I’m yours, 
I’ll make sure you’re happy

This heart doesn’t belong to me anymore
Even for a thousand years, I’ll wait for you

My dear, please don’t doubt who’s in my heart
Engraved in the star, my love for you will never die


Take a listen! I hope you'll enjoy it. :)
