Solo Dancing

During the late ’90s, my stepfather would eagerly request to have me dance during their Christmas party at work. He was working as a construction supervisor/architect at the diocese of Mati. Basically, the bishop of Mati was his boss. I was pressured to perform back then. I pulled it off but I felt uneasy while performing because I wanted to perform something original, something that I created. Choreography is not my talent because I learned through the years that I can dance or perform any step but it’s not really easy for me to create steps that I want to perform. Anyway, solo dancing is not really something that I like as I never have tried to practice completely alone at home, how much more if there are people watching. I know it’s weird but that’s just how I feel.

And recently, just yesterday actually, I performed solo again. With all the gained weight over the past year, it was really difficult for me to move though the audience may disagree. It wasn’t my ideal kind of performance as I really want to perform in a group rather than doing it solo, but there’s really no time for me or my office mates to practice or even plan what to present. Nonetheless, I’d take the win anytime of the day so in the end it was still good.

After yesterday’s performance, the only thing I can think of was that I miss dancing so much and that I would always love it.

Lyrics for Spur

This is the lyrics I wrote for Depapepe’s Spur back in 2008 during my business trip in Japan. I can’t seem to find the original version in Youtube but the winter version below will do just fine.

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 matamis mong 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
At hinihintay ko’y 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

Ang nais ko’y ikaw 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…
