Kuon No Kawa by Alan

Cita-citaku adalah nonton Red Cliff 1 dan 2 berturut-turut. Kata bibiku, OST-nya musik sastra. Hehe, bagaimana mendefinisikan apa itu musik sastra? Mudahnya, ini lagu yang berkualitas dalam melodi, aransemen musiknya, liriknya, vokalisnya… dan macam-macam. Ini termasuk lagu yang paling sering aku dengar. Ingin mengabadikan liriknya di sini, versi terjemahan Bahasa Inggrisnya.

Eternal River

There the sound of the wind echoes again and everyone seems to plant new seeds,
reciting ancient poems at the wall’s remains

Waves that crash over the riverbanks, what do you lament? In order to keep the names of the
people who remain separated from disappearing, wrap up your grief now and let’s forgive

Because a light still shines beyond the tears, I will entrust this heart to the river’s flow
Like the moon dancing on the water, even if everything is read, no matter the time,
we can keep on living

When pain is someday rewarded by love, please tell me why life is a struggle, please answer me, why do these chains accuse?
Everywhere there is the same sky and yet, the clouds bear the scars of time; they call out to the rain

Until a light shines beyond the tears, I will entrust this heart to the river’s flow
Like the moon dancing on the water, even if everything is read, let us keep on living
in the ways of long ago

Adikku bertanya, ini lagu tentang apa dan aku jawab, “Ini tentang perang dan orang-orang yang bertahan dalam penderitaan, hidup menunggu kekasihnya pulang…”
