“Don’t Sleep Away The Night” by Daniel Sahuleka

Sudah jalan satu bulan aku ambil kursus gitar klasik. Pekerjaan rumah terberat sejauh ini adalah ini: memainkan lagu Don’t Sleep Away The Night-nya Daniel Sahuleka dengan petikan. Jadi selama empat hari terakhir ini aku duduk di depan laptop mendengarkan lagu ini, berusaha menemukan akord-nya, bagaimana petikannya, dan melemaskan jari-jemari. Akhirnya, aku bisa menyimpulkan sesuatu, yaitu cara memainkan lagu ini menurut versiku. Aku pun mencatatnya demikian dan mungkin akan kurevisi lagi.

And every minute is worth while

G             C        D

And it makes me so afraid

The reason is there I love you
