Mindprinting 3.2

Original Indonesian version:

Menikah sudah
Punya anak sudah
Lulus S1 belum
Mungkin aku salah mengurutkannya
Tapi apa boleh buat
Dari dulu memang begitu
Kerja sudah
Dewasa belum
Begitu lah hidupku
Aku sering berandai
Sukses dulu
Kerja nanti
Yah, situasi itu selalu menghindariku

Urutan hidup yang salah membawa kesengsaraan
Tapi jangan salah
Aku seringkali merasa lega menderita
Habis duit habis tenaga
Tapi aku takkan habis cerita

Translated version, with a little creative revision thrown here and there:

Husband, check
Children, check
Degree? Not yet.
Maybe I wrote that in the wrong order.
Whatever
It’s always been that way
Got a job already
When I hadn’t reached adulthood yet.
That’s my life
I often ask myself, what if
success came first
and the work later?
Alas, that life is not for me!

The wrong order of things has brought me misery
but I don’t despair
Sadness is a blessing, as Lykke says
Out of money, out of breath
But my words shall never know death!
