Hatiku

Recorded in Netherlands, Indonesia, Singapore, Greece.

My self composed song Hatiku (My Heart) takes you on a musical journey crossing countries and cultures. I have been inspired by stories of people I met in Holland, Indonesia and other parts of the world. People who do not live in their homeland anymore, people who have left, to build a new life in a new country. And despite the fact that their new life is good, they feel a sense of restlessness, being torn between two worlds. Their heart is wandering …….

I did the entire music production by myself. The song is for sale on iTunes, CD Baby and Spotify. The video clip was recorded in the Netherlands (Enschede and Schiphol Airport), Indonesia (Jakarta), Singapore (Changi Airport) and Greece (Cyclades Islands).

Special thanks goes to my dear friends who helped me with the lyrics, I deeply appreciate their contribution.

Hatiku

(copyright 2012 nlpeter)

Setelah aku tiba di negeriku tercinta
Kuhirup udara, kurasakan hangat
Lihat anak-anak bermain di sekolah
Saat itu kurasa hatiku gembira

Tapi aku di sini
Ku sendiri di negeri
Di luar dingin, malam yang sepi
Walau cukup bahagia
Sahabat pun ada
Terkadang ku putus asa

REFREIN
Hatiku sedang berkelana
Tak bisa kutemukan ketenangan
Walau ku di sini
Hati ini hampa
Selalu merindukan nan jauh di sana
Hatiku berkelana

Dalam ingatanku ketikaku masih kecil
Ku rasa tangan ibu, lembut dan penuh kasih
Ku arungi dunia dengan kekuatan hati
Tiada kusadari rasa itu telah pergi

Begitu jauh darimu
Ku sendiri tanpamu
Mengapa kita harus berpisah
Alam khayalanku
Terbang langsung ke kamu
Lintasi luasnya samudra

REFREIN

Ku berjalan di pantai hanya ingin menjauh
Tak terasa air mata mengalir di pipiku
Perasaan yang resah membuatku takut
Apa yang telah terjadi, di mana tempatku?

Begitu jauh darimu
Ku sendiri tanpamu
Mengapa kita harus berpisah
Alam khayalanku
Terbang langsung ke kamu
Lintasi luasnya samudra

REFREIN
