Spur – Lyrics by Myself

I created the words for this instrumental song by Depapepe around 2 years ago (September 2008). I finished the lyrics while I was having a business trip in Japan.

Spur
I.
Mula nang makilala ka
Ako’y labis na natuwa
Ang mundo ko ay nagbago
Kinulay mo ang buhay ko
Minsan ako’y nagtataka
Anong meron sa’yo sinta
Ako’y mukhang nagagalak
Kung kasama kang naglalakad
Refrain
Lahat ay gagawin upang di mawalay sa’yong piling
Sinusundan ka ng tingin basta’t di mo napapansin
Sinusulyap bawat galaw kahit ika’y sumasayaw
Nakikinig sa sinasabi mo kahit na maikli
Pagka’t hinihinta’y iyong ngiti
Chorus
Pag-ibig ko sa’yo
Ay di na magbabago
Kahit lumipas man ang panahon
Sa’yo lang nakatuon
Sadyang wala na ngang iba
Ikaw sa akin ay nakakaiba
Buong isip, puso’t kaluluwa
Ay alay ko sa’yo sinta
II.
Ang puso ko’y nahulog na
Sa ‘yong tamis na pagsinta
Iyong mata’y kumikislap
Hatid sigla na kay sarap
Refrain
Lahat ay gagawin upang di mawalay sa’yong piling
Sinusundan ka ng tingin basta’t di mo napapansin
Sinusulyap bawat galaw kahit ika’y sumasayaw
Nakikinig sa sinasabi mo kahit na maikli
Pagka’t hinihinta’y iyong ngiti
Chorus
Pag-ibig ko sa’yo
Ay di na magbabago
Kahit lumipas man ang panahon
Sa’yo lang nakatuon
Sadyang wala na ngang iba
Ikaw sa akin ay nakakaiba
Buong isip, puso’t kaluluwa
Ay alay ko sa’yo sinta
Bridge
Lahat ay gagawin upang di mawalay sa’yong piling
Sinusundan ka ng tingin basta’t di mo napapansin
Sinusulyap bawat galaw kahit ika’y sumasayaw
Nakikinig sa sinasabi mo kahit na maikli
Pagka’t hinihintay pawang anghel mo na ngiti
Last chorus
Pag-ibig ko sa’yoy
Hinding-hindi maglalaho
Kahit dumaan pa ang ilang bagyo
Ikaw ang buhay ko
Ikaw ang nais ko giliw
Pagka’t sa piling mo’y di magmamaliw
Pag-ibig na alay sa iyo
Nawa’y pagkaingatan mo
Sa bawat oras na
Ikaw ay aking pinagmamasdan
Damdamin ko sa’yoy nasasabik
Hangad iyong halik
Pangarap kong mayakap ka
Parang langit na kapag kapiling ka
Isisigaw ko sa mundo
Mahal kita
Mahal kita(4x)
Mahal kita…

One Thing I Can’t Recall, Longing and Being Strong

There are a lot of things in the past that I can remember. Things where important or not. I can remember with vivid detail most of them. I can describe the color of the shirt that I’m wearing, the actions that happened during those instances, etc. But there’s one thing that I can’t remember. It’s my late father’s voice.

I can remember the many times that we spent together. The time he taught me how to bike, the time he came home that night when he gave my snare drum and the time when he was digging a big hole for our garbage. I can remember how he looks like when clean-shaven or not. Sadly, it’s his voice that I can’t remember.

It will be 15 years this December since he passed away. It happened 8 days after my 10th birthday. Left me with no siblings. Leaving me with no lesson or message about anything. I’ve been wishing and praying that I can see him in my dreams and tell me anything that he wanted to tell me. Tell me how I am doing as a man, as a son, as a husband and as a father. I want to hear this from him so badly because he knows how hard it was for me to live without having siblings. How hard it was to do things on my own even when I’m doing things well. That even when people think that you’re so bright, they don’t know that you also want someone you can ask for solutions and answers. That there are also questions that would leave you dumbfounded. And you push yourself to your limits just to figure out how the world goes around. But that’s not really the problem, because I just want someone like him or even a sibling that I can talk about anything, lend my hand with and teach him/her about anything. And above all these things, he knows how very hard and crazy it is to be away from your family.

Most importantly, I want to hear him talk because he is my father and he will always be even though he’s gone. I have become strong because of his death and because of having no sibling. I learned how to keep moving forward on my own withstanding any problem that comes my way. But sometimes, I wish that I can be weak for a few minutes and have a father or a sibling know that I’m not really fine even when I say that I am and do something to lift up my spirit.
