Amirah Ali – Katakanlah (Original Song)

 

A beautiful song with a lot for us to reflect on .

In her own words Amirah Ali said “I am saddened and angered by the recent happenings in my country, Malaysia. I would like to share with you this song that I wrote. We are all ONE and so is GOD.”

KATAKANLAH
Hari ke hari ku cari
Tapiku tidak pasti
Seribu malam ku mimpi
Tapi ku belum fahami

Chorus
Adakahkanku namaku
Adakahkanku kulitku
Ugamaku dan bangsaku
Tradisiku, negaraku
Akalku, buatanku, niatku

Oh Ya Allah
Katakanlah
Ya Allah
Katakanlah

Hari ke hari ku pandang
Tayangan hias bumi
Seribu malam ku kira
Bintang-bintang menawan hati

Chorus
Seluruh dunia di dalam
Sebutir tanah pasir
Kecil-kecilan hidupan
Merangkumi semua angkasa

Chorus
Jauh di dalam lautan
Rahsia anak ikan
Pusaka lama disimpan
Cantik lagi bahaya

Chorus

English Translation by U-En
TELL ME
Each passing day I seek,
And yet I am unsure.
For a thousand nights I dream
And still my doubt endures.

Am I but a name?
Mere colour of my skin?
Am I just my faith, beholden to my race?
Am I tradition, blood of a nation?
Am I thought, an act, intention?

Oh God
Tell me
Oh God
Tell me

Each passing day I gaze
Upon this ornamented world.
For a thousand nights I count
The stars that bind my heart.

All the world contained
Within a grain of sand,
Life’s merest whisper
Encompasses the firmament.

Deep beneath the tide,
Secrets still abide.
An ancient heritage endures,
Perilous and ever fair.
