Don't Let Me Down & Down in Indonesian  

I've been looking for these lyrics in Indonesian for a long time and never found them. Even PMed Blammo a few weeks ago, but that is a laugh. I'll get something back from him when I'm 30. Here they are though...

Masihku menyimpan cintaku padamu
Tiada tempat sembunyi, tiada cara jatuh
Tiada tempat berbohong, tiada dunia sebesar,
Aku tak usah lagi memberitahumu,
Jangan susahkan hatiku

Ku tahu ada sesuatu di angin
Mindaku yang tak seimbang
Engkau dan aku jenis manusia apa?
Takut setengah mati, kenapalah
Aku tak usah lagi memberitahumu
Jangan susahkan hatiku

Masihku menyimpan cintaku padamu

Kau sedia dengan takdirmu
Kau berlari-lari dalam ingatanku
Kau menghantui fikiranku tak pudar
Aku tak usah lagi memberitahumu
Jangan susahkan hatiku

(repeat first verse)

they should be really close. Thanks to skywriter for the help.

Re: Don't Let Me Down & Down in Indonesian new [re: SlinkySecrets47]  

I once played this song and Amlapura (Indonesian version) for an Indonesian friend of mine. Of the two, she told me that the delivery of this song is much closer to the softly spoken style of the Indonesian language. I shall email her and see if we can get a direct Indonesian to English translation of these lyrics. Thanks for posting them.

How closely do they compare with the English lyrics? As you can see, the Mandarin version of Seven Years In Tibet is quite different in many parts, so it'd be interesting to see if the same applies here.

I took them home and listened real close, and most of the words in the song match the words here. I couple of lines are changed, but that's about it. Thanks though, for emailing your friend and all.
