Indonesian text[edit]

Berjalan ke Barat di Waktu Pagi Hari

Waktu berjalan ke barat di waktu pagi hari matahari mengikutiku di belakang

Aku berjalan mengikuti bayang-bayangku sendiri yang memanjang di depan

Aku dan matahari tidak bertengkar tentang siapa di antara kami yang telah menciptakan bayang-bayang

Aku dan bayang-bayang tidak bertengkar tentang siapa di antara kami yang harus berjalan di depan

English translation[edit]

Walking to the West in the Morning

When walking to the west in the morning the sun follows me from the back

I walk following my own shadow tall at the front

The sun and I did not argue about whom between the two of us created the shadow

The shadow and I did not argue about whom between the two of us is to walk at the front
