deserted roads

No one is walking in the streets anymore
No smiles can be seen on faces like before.
Deprived of cars, the road looks empty,
Gone is the hustle and bustle of the city.

longingly

I look at them longingly, just after the fight ebbs away. 
I look at them again, after a long day.
I look at them longingly, with so much love in my eyes,
But then there’s the enemy, playing as friends in disguise.

I look at them lovingly, just after a long week
After so many days, I take just one peek.
I look at them lovingly, with the saddest smile on my face
Like a girl who ended up in the wrong time and place.

I look at them sadly, not being able to join in
Not being able to tell them what’s within.
I look at them sadly, with a small light of happiness in my eyes
And I look at them, staring, thinking of this world, a lie.

I look at them longingly, only being able to watch.
I look at them longingly; I miss them so much.
I look at them sadly, hearing their shouts in play.
I look at them lovingly, if only they could hear what I say.

shadow

Some people think that flying high is easy. 
Some think it feels so nice because it’s bright. 
But once you get to the top, you’ll get wheezy,
Because in front of you’s a shadow and not the light.  

It keeps growing with every step I take,
It keeps showing in every song I make.
Nothing really helps, I’m hopeless when it comes to me,
So I can’t really understand why you chose me.

How can I know you when I don’t know myself? 
Why do want me and not someone else? 
I can’t even be who I would’ve wanted to be 
So why is it me you always want to see? 

Some people think climbing mountains is easy-  
So cold, yet so warm, and just so bright.  
But once you get to the top, you’ll get wheezy 
Because in front of you’s a shadow and not the light.    

It keeps growing with every step I take,
It keeps showing in every song I make.
Nothing really helps, I’m hopeless when it comes to me,
So I can’t really understand why you chose me.

How can I know you when I don’t know myself? 
Why do want me and not someone else? 
I can’t even be who I would’ve wanted to be, 
So why is it me you always want to see? 

I can’t understand  
I can’t control it 
I can barely stand 
And I just don’t fit 

How can I know you when I don’t know myself? 
Why do want me and not someone else? 
I can’t even be who I would’ve wanted to be 
So why is it me you always want to see?

Hello everyone! I haven’t posted for two months, so it’s really nice to be back. (This is a little strange. What a happy greeting when this song’s so sad.)

Anyway…..

This song is about sadness. You out there, anyone, you might know how that feels. Everyday, that heavy feeling grows.

But for all that I know, there is something that makes us happy. Whether it’s the music we listen to, the flowers outside our windows, or the traffic jam that never happened.

And for all I know, something that will make all of us happy, is the end of the pandemic. I’m pretty sure that it will end, and it’s something that we should all look forward to everyday. We all need something to look forward to.

What’s yours?

swallowed up in sadness

I wanna cry, I wanna shout, 
Run around and scream.  
I open my mouth, but no sound comes out— 
Just these feelings, frightful and mean.

Just myself that scares me, 
I don’t know what it is.  
I want others to understand and see, 
But they’re drowning in their bliss.  

There’s a bag of stones in my heart, 
Makes me wonder how it came. 
Makes me pick up the shard  
On the floor, and let it go, all the same.  

I wonder if the accident that came a day ago 
Could me be in the white car? 
Maybe in a week or so 
I will escape to darkness far.  

I get up, only to fall down again, 
Then drop wordlessly on the floor.  
I just want to see my friends 
And run outside, past the door. 

Here I am trapped in a box 
With a heavy feeling in my heart 
Eventually, I tear at the locks 
Of my hair, and wish it didn’t start.  

Why did this ever begin? 
When will it end? 
Why is my life suddenly thrown in a bin, 
And my heart distorted and bent?

˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚˚

When emotions take over you, it’s overwhelming.

Especially when they tell you to give up on the things you’d normally agree to and work hard for.

So many questions.

So little answers.

It’s just life.

Like our ancestors, we must move forward to where we want to be. For the people coming after us, so they can stand on our shoulders and grow.

dark night

Sweet little things that I think of 
Specially at night 
Makes me dream and takes my mind off 
The sadness and fright 
Of the dark. 
Night envelopes the lamp’s light 
Making it a beautiful sight. 
But as I lay here, my friend, 
I think of you.  

Morning comes, I yawn and see the birds outside, 
Living, flying so free.  
Sometimes, though, I want to hide, 
Because I am all alone, with nothing to see.  
The day passes quickly, with me, thinking of you, my friend Then the morning and afternoon cames to end, 
And I lay awake once more in bed.  
I see the dark night  
Enveloping the lamp’s light 
Making it a beautiful sight.
But as I lay here, my friend, I think of you.  
Staying here inside makes it so hard to think of 
The grass under my feet, 
Makes life hard without you to talk to all day,
Back then, when I had more to say.  
The daylight and the moonlight  
Guides me through my life, 
At least, my life stuck here.  
Dark night, 
Lamp light, 
The fright is gone 
I think of you.

Pasko sa Pilipinas (Christmas in the Philippines)

Brush strokes, forming a painting,
Drops of water in a pond. 
Little bells on the door, jingling,
To greet our visitors fond. 


Yule-tide is coming, the tree is up,
The smell of baked cookies wafting through the air. 
I relax in a corner with a cup
Of hot chocolate, and wonder why the rain’s still there. 


In other countries, snow is falling,
Graceful skaters are scanning the frozen lake. 
But here the rain falls into streams with a ping,
And the weather could be sunny, give or take. 


There are people making the parol,
And fill the busy streets with the star lights,
Engines buzz and tires all roll,
Making their way through the Christmas night. 


Santa Claus will come, I’m sure,
With his bag of presents through the rain 
Though not a quite as he came before,
I know he will come again. 


I write busily in a corner, letters to ever so many people
Who might be on their way. 
Outside, the bells ring, and I look out to see the church steeple,
And dress up for Christmas Day.

On My Pillow

[verse] 
I’m lying down, restless at midnight.  
Can’t seem to get my eyes to close.  
I see the yellow lamplight, 
Its radiance dancing like a rose.  

[pre-chorus]  
Mmm mmm mmm, how do you get to sleep 
If your head’s too full of thoughts? 
Mmm mmm mmm, do you lie in bed and count sheep? 
Or all the things you lost? 

[chorus] 
I am lying awake, thinking of the world outside.  
I want to run away, but there’s no place to hide.  
I want to go out and run and shout.  
But I’m trapped here, and it’s my tomorrow I’m thinking about.  

[verse] 
In the dark, I see the inkblots on my fingers 
Reminds me of the days when I wrote till dawn.  
I try to get my mind off outside, but its still lingers 
Up till now, I want to run free, free as a fawn 

[pre-chorus] 
Mmm mmm mmm, how do you get to sleep 
If your head’s too full of thoughts? 
Mmm mmm mmm, do you lie in bed and count sheep? 
Or all the things you lost? 
 

[chorus] 
I am lying awake, thinking of the world outside.  
I wasnt to run away, but theres no place to hide.  
I want to go out and run and shout.  
But I’m trapped here, and it’s my tomorrow I’m thinking about.  

[bridge] 
Will we stay here forever? 
When will we all be together? 
When will be able to feel the grass under our toes? 
When will we see again our friends and our foes? 

[chorus] 
I am lying awake, thinking of the world outside.  
I want to run away, but theres no place to hide.  
I want to go out and run and shout.  
But I’m trapped here, and it’s my tomorrow I’m thinking about.  

[outro] 
I remember, I remember  (Running outside, yeah) 
I remember, I remember (When we didnt have to hide inside) 
[slowly fade out....]

Outcast

Did I live for a purpose?
What am I doing here?
Petals are falling from the rose
From their mouths a leer.
I want to tell them I didn't mean it,
That I apologized,
But they just don't see it,
And the monsters in me rise.
I want to show them I'm nice,
That I'm worthy, sweet, and honest.
But it's just me they despise,
So I feel like a bird out of it's nest.

Us In Quarantine

Turn the the lights on, 
Its getting dark. 
Close the windows, 
We might be seen. 
There might be people 
Who are jealous of us; 
There might be people 
Who want to steal our love 
Who want to steal our love, yeah. 

But I won’t let them steal you away from me, 
I hope you won’t let them steal me away from you,
From you. 

Shine, shine, shine in the bright lights, 
Dance, dance, dance, dance around, 
Sing, sing, sing, sing a song for me. 

Turn the the lights out, 
Its getting bright. 
Open the windows, 
We want to see the outside world. 
There might be people 
Who are jealous of us; 
There might be people 
Who want to steal our love 
Who want to steal our love, yeah. 

But I won’t let them steal you away from me, 
I hope you won’t let them steal me away from you, 
From you. 

Shine, shine, shine in the bright lights, 
Dance, dance, dance, dance around, 
Sing, sing, sing, sing a song for me.

The dark, dark, room 
Where I keep on writing 
Songs about you, about you. 
The music pours out of the stereo 
We keep on dancing, keep on dancing. 

Turn the the lights on,
Its getting dark. 
Close the windows, 
We might be seen. 
There might be people 
Who are jealous of us; 
There might be people 
Who want to steal our love 
Who want to steal our love, yeah.

Thank You, Friend.

Head full of thoughts
Heart empty. 
Mind full of dreams;
Ones that can’t be fulfilled. 
But my feelings are still hopeful
For the end of this crisis;
And then my heart is slowly filling up
With  sense of belonging,
A sense of love from you. 
You simply take me away
From the darkness surrounding me. 
Before I shouted: Oh help, I'm drowning,
But you pulled me out of the black pool;
You wiped my tears dry. 
You comforted me throughout our friendship.
No more of sadness,
No more of loneliness.
They are forever banished from my mind.
Thoughts of you and your love surrounding me
Will stay forever in my mind forevermore. 
Thank you for protecting me;
Thank you for the times
We spent with each other. 
Birthdays, meetings-- I will treasure these forever
In this little mind of mine. 
Memories of togetherness
Will never be forgotten. 
My candle of love 
For you will never be extinguished. 
Thank you so much, dear friend
For helping me on the way
To happiness and love. 
I hope this friendship will never end,
For I love you so very much. 
Mountains we climbed,
Hard, cold ones too. 
Rough currents we waded through,
But we've crossed the bridge of hardship,
And we've finally reached our plce,
That sweet, sweet place
In the world of memory, love, everlasting friendship, and trust.
