Jingle Muna Tayo

Sana'y masabi
Sa awit kong ito
Lahat ng ninanais
Nitong puso ko.
Sana saanman
Patungo sa buhay
May pag-ibig, may pag-asa
May saya at saysay.
Sana sa bawat
Sandali'y matikman pa
Sarap ng pagsasama
At simpleng ligaya.
Tara na, sakyan lang
Malay mo,
Andyan lang, andyan lang
Ang hinahanap mo.

You've Got Mail

Today I finally got the courage to look at his picture, or to be more accurate, OUR picture. I never thought I'd still feel sad, but I still somehow feel happy. Looking back, I just know that those were one of the best days of my life and he was kind enough to help make them as they were.

I've learned from Philosophy class that some things would just have to end for you to find out how much they really mean. Think about endings as a form of death. Death scares us and seems too morbid for young ones to think about, but it's in knowing that we'll die one day that we realize what is more important to us - to live AND love while we still can.

I'd hate to leave something as sure as what I really felt about him. Now, I don't know what I feel anymore. Do I still miss him? Am I still looking for him? Why do I miss him today of ALL days? But the most important question to me is "Is he happy?" I ask God that every night, and God always gives me an assuring smile and nod. It was as if he were saying, "Why shouldn't he be if I'm always with him?" I know God loves him more than I ever can. I could only cross oceans of religion and culture just to be with him, but God was willing to cross the ocean seperating heaven and earth.

I don't know when I'll ever stop talking to God about him. Sometimes I ask God, "God, why do you still remind me of him whenever we talk? Don't you want me to be with just you?" But what is in my heart is that God was not only with me, he was with US. And he is with us in our joys and pains. I don't know if I'll still talk to God about him after tonight. Maybe I'm just waiting for God to assure me, to help me see that he really is happy. Yes, I think that's it. What I've been asking God for the longest time was "God PLEASE show him to me happy." But I don't think I ever can or ever will.

What I do know is that I have faith not only in God's love for him but in his love for God. I just know him enough to be sure, that wether or not he is happy, he is looking for God, the same way I look for him and God looks for us. This assures me that in the end, when this journey of love finally, finally ends - LOVE WILL TRIUMPH.

Reyna ng Katorpehan

sung by Nickel Creek (thanks TJ!Ü)

Well I sat down next to a photograph
Tried my best almost made her laugh
She was my toughest crowd
There in the way was a mountain up in the clouds
Well I can't sleep and I'm not in love
I can't speak without messing up
Eye's tell of what's behind
And hers showed the way to a long and lonely climb
But through failure I'll proceed
And she'll see how far I've come

And it's you and me in the sun and sea
I'll offer my arms to yours
It seems to me, no mystery
Well it isn't
So I'll try hard to speak

Well I sat down next to a living hell
Tried my best until I struck out
Movement is not mine
I stood in the way pretending that I was the vine
But no failure will proceed from a mouth that drinks its wine

And it's not me
Not my sanctity
These aren't my words to you
It's all clear when it's not from here
So clear
So I'll try not to speak

Malala na 'ko...

My Pride & Joy

Null & Void

Make Me Whole
sung by Amel Larrieux

Darling I want you to listen
I stayed up all night, so I can get this thing right
And I don't think there's anything missing
Cause a person like you, made it easy to do
I've waited for so long, to sing to you this song

Cause your eyes are the windows to heaven
Your smile could heal a million souls
Your love completes my existence
You're the other half that makes me whole
You're the only other half that makes me whole

I think the angels are your brothers
They told you about me, said you're just what she needs
And I find myself thanking your mother
For giving birth to a saint
My spirit flies when I say your name
If there's one thing that's true
It's that I was born to love you

And your eyes are the windows to heaven
Your smile could heal a million souls
Your love completes my existence
You're the other half that makes me whole
You're the only other half that makes me whole

You make my dreams
Come true over & over again
And I honestly truly believe
You & me are written in the stars

I live my whole life through
Just giving thanks to you

Cause your eyes are the windows to heaven
Your smile could heal a million souls
Your love completes my existence
You're the other half that makes me whole
You're the only other half that makes me whole

Les Miserables

You're Les Miserables!
by Victor Hugo

One of the best known people in your community, you have become something of a phenomenon. People have sung about you, danced in your honor, created all manner of art in your name. And yet your story is one of failure and despair, with a few brief exceptions. A hopeless romantic, you'll never stop hoping that more good will come from your failings than is ever possible. Beware detectives & prison guards bearing vendettas.

On My Own

And now I'm all alone again
Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
Without a home without a friend
Without a face to say hello to
And now the night is near
I can make believe he's here

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and I'm happy
With the company I'm keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head

On my own
Pretending he's beside me
All alone
I walk with him till morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me

In the rain the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever

And I know it's only in my mind
That I'm talking to myself and not to him

And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there's a way for us

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone
The river's just a river
Without him
The world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But every day I'm learning
All my life
I've only been pretending
Without me
His world would go on turning

A world that's full of happiness
That I have never known

I love him
I love him

I love him
But only on my own

Hopelessly Addicted

sung by Evan & Jaron (Serendipity OST)

The sky has lost its color
The sun has turned to grey
At least that's how it feels to me
Whenever you're away

I crawl up in the corner
As I watch the minutes pass
Each one brings me closer to
The time when you'll be back
You're coming back

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time
Until the next time I see you smile

I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That I can't take a breath without saying your name
I can brave a hurricane
And still be standing tall when all the dust has settled down
But I can't take the distance

I still believe in feelings
But sometimes I feel too much
I make believe you're close to me
But it ain't close enough
Not nearly close enough
