Selimut Hati – Blanket for the heart? LOL

I am out of ways to turn words into mesmerizing lines and hence I decided to translate a Malay-Indo song into English. I got a whole lot of issues to talk about but I lack the idea to connect the story line to make it seamless. Translating a song from one language to another worked for my Malay blog. LOL it has only been a week and already my creativity running dry. Take note, the malay lines were copied from here . So credits for the guitar chords goes to the writer who came up with the guide on the given address. The strumming pattern? Mmmm about 2 swings per chord. It’s music, gotta find one that you like and one that suits your singing style.

Hmm I got a feeling that my writings are getting lamer and lamer but there
are times for this I guess. Even the font for the closing paragraph is
of the same type with the lyrics I translated. So lazy and idea-less.

By the way, I tried to translate the lyrics as per context that I
understood. Hopefully more anglicized ideas will flourish after
this.
