Indonesian term or phrase: meskipun dirimu tak nyata untukku

English translation:Although you are not real for me
Explanation:
the word "nyata" in the original has a great deal of semantic range, more often than not implying a physical presence-- perhaps "tangible" or "apparent" or "visible" to me would work as well. This would depend on the broader context of the song.
