Original Malay lyrics English translation

Dalam pertemuan ini
Kita terperangkap sudah
Dalam jerat percintaan
Yang tidak disangkakan

Aku telah jadi lupa siapa diriku ini
Engkau juga dihanyutkan
Oleh arus percintaan mu

Tapi pabila aku sedar diri siapakah aku ini
Aku tertanya sendiri apakah akan terjadi

Oh apakah kita kan teruskan
Di dalam arus percintaan
Perlukah kita untuk berkorban
Demi pertahankan kebahagian

Dalam persimpangan ini
Ku masih terus menanti
Dalam rasa keharuan
Di manakah akhirnya

In this meeting
We are already caught
In the trap of love
That was not expected

I have forgotten who I am
You are also being swept away
By your waves of love

But when I became aware who I am
I asked to myself what would happen

O would we continue
Inside the wave of love
Do we need to sacrifice
For the sake of defending our happiness

At this crossroad
I am still waiting
Feeling touched within
Where would it end
