Not a chance

October 18, 2009

June 14, 2009 He liked me but he never said I think he liked me but I never asked He should have told me I should have given him a chance Now I know and it’s time for goodbye He’s too late, our time had passed I won’t tell him what could’ve been That way, […]

Give me love

October 18, 2009

June 25-26, 2009 Here you go again knocking at my door Asking for a chance just like before You’re sorry for things you’ve done That day you left me for another one It’s been months since I’ve been all alone I spent those days waiting for your all on the phone I need you then […]

Dungaw sa nakalipas

October 18, 2009

January 31, 2009 Dudungaw sa bintana Babalik ang nakalipas Tayo’y magkasama At nagmamahalan ng wagas. Dudungaw sa bintana Babalik ang nakalipas Tayo lamang dalawa Hawak kamay habang nasa bus. Dudungaw sa bintana Babalik ang nakalipas Umidlip lang, wala ka na Nandun ka na sa labas Dudungaw sa bintana Babalik ang nakalipas Nakita kita may iba […]

Back to my grave

October 18, 2009

October 13, 2008 See me now This is not the usual me Not the way I used to be But you changed me, you changed me I didn’t ask you to come How dare you make me fall then drop me But I can’t hate you I love you so much You shouldn’t have come […]

Mahal kita paalam na

October 18, 2009

October 8-11, 2008 Sa simula pa lang walang patutunguhan Pero hinayaang mahulog ang pusong sinalo mo naman Ako’y nanghina sa tamis ng dila mong di makatotohanan Pati puso kong bato nanlambot at bumigay sa lambing mo Bawat sandali parang walang kinabukasan Magsasaya kahit kabang-kabang di na maulit pa Nakikiusap wag kang aalis, kamay ko ay […]

Buro

October 18, 2009

Blue and Siver Bulok ang amoy Bulok and itsura Mabaho, kadiri At nakaksuka Ngunit sa tahanan ni Juan Ito ay pinagsasaluhan Buong pamilya nagkakamay Taas paa sa hapag-kainan Oo, ito’y pagkain Oo, ito’y bulok Oo, ito’y sinusubo Nginunguya’t nilulunok Wala yan sa itsura Wala yan sa amoy Mayaman man o mahirap Ito’y pagkaing pinoy Kaya […]

Roundtrip

October 18, 2009

June 12, 2008 Lagi kitang naiisip To or from man sa eskwela Mapagabi man o umaga Two hours or longer pag traffic pa Lagi kitang naiisip Whatever aking sakyan Mapa-bus o FX man Kahit sa jeep at sa tricycle At tuwing naiisip ka Feels like I’m in another world I wish ganun na lang palagi […]

Me or her

October 18, 2009

June 15, 2008 Every time I say that I love you Your reply is ‘I don’t know what to say’ But every time that we’re all alone You make me feel that I am the one I kept asking you ‘Is it me or her?’ Though I’m afraid to know that I’m not the answer […]

Panatang Makadayuhan

October 18, 2009

Blue and Siver Panatang makadayuhan Lilisanin ko ang Pilipinas Sa abroad ako maninirahan Magiging tahanan at magpapalahi Kupkupin mo ako at tulungang Maging sosyal, kagalang-galang at mayaman Dahil mahal ko ang mga dayuhan Pag-aaralan ko ang kanilang lengwahe Susundin ko ang pamumuhay nila’t paniniwala Tutuparin ko ang mga tungkulin Ng isang ganap na dayuhan Nagpapayaman […]

Michelle

October 18, 2009

Blue and Silver January-February 2007 I thought I’m moving on I thought I’ve let go But now I find myself holding on Oh why do I still love you so? Though you’ve taken me for granted Though you’ve neglected my trust Still my heart needs you badly Seems like loving you is a must You’ve […]
