|Original Malay lyrics||English translation|
Dalam pertemuan ini
Aku telah jadi lupa siapa diriku ini
Tapi pabila aku sedar diri siapakah aku ini
Oh apakah kita kan teruskan
Dalam persimpangan ini
In this meeting
I have forgotten who I am
But when I became aware who I am
O would we continue
At this crossroad
