Making Love Out Ot Nothing At All

Air Supply

I know just how to whisper
And I know just how to cry
I know just where to find the answers
And I know just how to lie

I know just how to fake it
And I know just how to scheme
I know just when to face the truth
And then I know just when to dream

And I know just where to touch you
I know just what to prove
I know when to pull you closer
And I know when to let you loose

And I know the night is fading
And I know the time’s gonna fly
And I’m never gonna tell you
Everything I gotta tell you
But I know I gotta give it a try

And I know the roads to riches
And I know the ways to fame
I know all the rules
And I know how to break ‘em
And I always got to get in the game

But I don’t know how to leave you
And I’ll never let you fall
And I don’t know how you do it
Making love Out nothing at all

Out of nothing at all, out of nothing at all
Out of nothing at all, out of nothing at all
Out of nothing at all
Making love out of nothing at all

Every time I see you all the rays of the sun are
Streaming through the waves in your hair
And every star in the sky is taking aim at your eyes
Like a spotlight

The beating of my hearth is a drum and it’s lost
And it’s looking for a rhythm like you
You can take the darkness from the pit of the night
And turn into a beacon burning endlessly bright

I’ve gotta follow it ‘cause everything I know
Well it’s nothing till I give it to you

I can make the runner stumble
I can make the final block
And I can make every tackle at the sound of the whistle,
I can make all the stadiums rock!

And I can make tonight forever
Or I can make it disappear by the dawn
And I can make you every promise that has
ever been made, and
I can make all your demons be gone

But I’m never gonna make it without you
Do you really wanna see me crawl
And I’m never gonna make it like you do
Making love out of nothing at all

Out of nothing at all, out of nothing at all
Out of nothing at all, out of nothing at all
Out of nothing at all, out of nothing at all
Out of nothing at all


sajak desember
sapardi djoko damono

kutanggalkan mantel serta topiku yang tua
ketika daun penanggalan gugur
lewat tengah malam. kemudian kuhitung
hutang-hutangku pada-Mu

mendadak terasa: betapa miskinnya diriku;
di luar hujan pun masih kudengar
dari celah-celah jendela. ada yang terbaring
di kursi letih sekali

masih patutkah kuhitung segala milikku
selembar celana dan selembar baju
ketika kusebut berulang nama-Mu; taram
temaram bayang, bianglala itu

Batu
Sutardji Calzoum Bachri

batu mawar
batu langit
batu duka
batu rindu
batu jarum
batu bisu
kaukah itu
teka
teki
yang
tak menepati janji?

Dengan seribu gunung langit tak runtuh dengan seribu perawan
hati tak jatuh dengan seribu sibuk sepi tak mati dengan seribu
beringin ingin tak teduh. Dengan siapa aku mengeluh?
Mengapa jam harus berdenyut sedang darah tak sampai mengapa
gunung harus meletus sedang langit tak sampai mengapa peluk
diketatkan sedang hati tak sampai mengapa tangan melambai sedang
lambai tak sampai. Kau tahu?

batu risau
batu pukau
batu Kau-ku
batu sepi
batu ngilu
batu bisu
kaukah itu
teka
teki
yang
tak menepati
janji?


Nocturno
Sapardi Djoko Damono

kubiarkan cahaya bintang memilikimu
kubiarkan angin yang pucat
dan tak habis-habisnya gelisah
tiba-tiba menjelma isyarat merebutmu
entah kapankah bisa kutangkap…


sluku-sluku bathok

bathoke ela-elo

si romo menyang solo

payunge payung metho

tak gendher lho-lho lobah

wong mati ora obah

yen obah medeni bocah


padhang mbulan

yo prakanca dolanan ing njaba
padhang mbulan padhangé kaya rina
rembulané kang ngawé-awé
ngélikaké aja turu soré-soré


dhondhong apa salak

dhuku cilik cilik

ngandhong apa mbecak

mlaku thimik thimik

adhik ndherek ibu

tindak menyang pasar

ora pareng rewel

ora pareng nakal

mengko ibu mesthi

mundhut oleh-oleh

kacang karo roti

adhik diparingi
