Di Bawoh Rang Ikang Kering
Random Ramblings of A Retired Retainer


Wednesday, January 25, 2006
In times of stress or distress, sing if you can. When I was very young, my father could tell if I am recovering from whatever that floored me. He would tell my mother: Your son is getting better. I heard him sing.
So all my fellow Malaysians, whatever your beliefs and however you want to live (or die), here is the lyrics of a song that I found on a Karaoke cd. Somehow, it seems appropriate:

No matter what they tell us
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach us
What we believe is true

No matter what they call us
However they attack
No matter where they take us
We'll find our own way back

I can't deny what I believe
I can't be what I'm not
I know I'll love forever
I know, no matter what

If only tears were laughter
If only night was day
If only prayers were answered
Then we would hear God say

Repeat Chorus

And I will keep you safe and strong
And shelter from the storm
No matter where it's barren
A dream is being born
No matter who they follow
No matter where they lead
No matter how they judge us
I'll be everyone you need
No matter if the sun don't shine
Or if the skies are blue
No matter what the end is
My life began with you

I can't deny what I believe
I can't be what I'm not
I know, I know
I know this love's forever
That's all that matters now
No Matter What.

If you know the original singers and the title of the album, give your self a pat on the back.
