Aminin

Bakit ba 'di mo aminin sa akin ay may pagtingin?
'di naman ako nangangain pasulyap-sulyap sa akin
Lagi kang nambibitin

Bakit 'di mo aminin na may gusto ka rin sa akin? (Pakipot ka lang)
Akala mo ba ako'y nagbibiro?
Bakit 'di mo makita na gusto kitang kasama (hindi ko alam)
Ano ba'ng kailangang kong gawin

Bakit ba 'di mo masabi halata naman sa iyong ngiti
Kailangan pa ba akong makiusap mga mata'y nangungusap
At ako't nangangarap

Isang libo't isang tawag na ang aking nagawa
Na-'delete' mo ba ang number ko?
Ngunit kahit masayang ang oras
Ikaw ay hihintayin ko


Beg & Plead

If you would hold me the way you used to do
I'd turn away and make you look like a fool
If only you would kiss me my heart will melt inside
But baby I will set emotions aside

And even if you beg and plead
And try to sweep me off my feet... no, no, no
It's not enough to see you try
I'd prob'ly let you fall down and cry

This time it's over, can't you understand?
When we go out you won't be holding my hand no more
No need to wonder what is there to feel
The emptiness I'll leave behind you will be so real

It's about time you realize not everything's about you
And it's just right for I am so much better off without you


Twenty Questions

What's that thing you've been trying to say?
...you know I'm not listening anyway
What's that thing looming over your head?
...it's messing up everything you've said

Why did you make me stay on the line
...just to tell me you're doing fine?
Why did you never say
...you had these feelings all this time?

If you could see it in his eyes would you take it?
If she's the one that you despise would you fake it?
And if I could see beneath the disguise could we make it?
Then maybe we won't keep asking questions...

What's that game you've been trying to play?
...you know I'm not interested anyway
Why're you keep asking what's goin' in my head?
...when you should be worrying 'bout yours instead

Why did you make me wait on the line
...and be the one to complain and whine?
Why did you never stay
...when you had these feelings all this time?

What's with all these questions?
Does it even matter anymore?
Could I prob'ly make a suggestion?
I will just be fine if you leave me alone this time


Just Let Me Know

I called you up last night
You said that you were just a bit confused
But lately I have noticed
You're missing out on things we used to do

I know there's something wrong
I feel it every time you hold me close
And when you kiss my lips
You try to hide it but somehow I know

Don't show me that you sympathize
And make me live a world of lies
Just let me know if you don't love me anymore
Don't ever look into my eyes
Coz I can see right through your smile
Somehow I know that you don't love me anymore

I only live to love you
I just thought that I should let you know
If you don't feel the same way
Don't ever be afraid to let me go


Nagiisa

Lahat ng aking pagtingin ay sa'yo nakalaan
Kung mayroon kang nanaisin ay lagi kang pagbibigyan

Ngunit bakit ka biglang lumisan?
Ito ba ay aking kasalanan?
Bakit mo ako iniwang nagiisa

Nagiisa
Lumisan ka't ako'y nasaktan
Nagiisa
Hinahanap hanap pa rin kita

Dati'y napansin ko na nakita ko sa'yong mga mata
Yakap mo'ng damang dama dahandahan nang nawawala

Kahit di mo man sabihin
Sa kilos mo'y malinaw na nakikita
Di ko na nadarama ang lambing sa ‘yong halik


Fooling with Your Heart

You showed me love and gave your all in many different ways
You never realized it's just a game I like to play
Ohhh… I guess this time I've gone to far
I kept fooling with your heart

I played around with love I know that I'm the one to blame
It hurts to see that you can't even bear to hear my name
I should have never gone this far
I should have just loved you from the start

I'm so sorry baby, didn't mean to make you cry
But what else can I do
I'm gonna go away but it doesn't mean I'm saying goodbye

At first I thought that what we had was like a dream come true
But later on I saw this game was never meant for you
I guess this time I've gone to far
I should have just loved you from the start

I have to go without you
I can't really tell you why
But before I do I have to say this one last time


Alinlangan

Pa'no ba sasabihin ang aking nadarama
Sa twing nandyan s'ya ay di ako mapalagay
Mahirap sabihin, mahirap magsalita

Hindi ko maisip kung pa'no ‘padarama
Kinakabahan sa twing ikaw ay nariyan
Puro ligaw tingin wala namang pinupuntahan

Sana naman ay mapansin mo na
Dahil mahirap rin naman ang ganito
Isang ngiti mo lang ay mapapawi na
Ang lahat ng alinlangan ko

Nasasayang ang oras sa aking paghihintay
Nabigay na'ng lahat ang mga bulaklak
Para lang mapansin ay pipiliting abutin ang bituwin

Di ko na mapipigil
Kay tagal ko nang naghintay
Sana ay maintindihan mo
Na ang nadaram ko para sayo'y totoo

Sana'y malaman mo, pagibig ko'y totoo


Huwag mo nang Sabihin

Isang oras na akong naghihintay
Hindi na makasiguro kung darating ka pa

Pa'no iiwasang magtampo
Halos hindi mapalagay sa pagaalala

Huwag mong sabihin ang mga paliwanag mo
Na lagi kong naririnig sa iyo

Huwag na nating pagusapan
Huwag na nating dagdagan ang mga problema
Yun lang naman ang hinihiling
At ayoko nang malaman
Ang mga naglalaro sa iyong isipan
Sana ay huwag mo nang sabihin

Walang patutunguhan ang pagbibiro
Hindi mo na maibabalik ang oras na nawala


That Old Feeling

It's been so long since I wrote down a song
I don't know where to begin
I got a feeling inside that's so strong,
I just can't keep it in

I gotta let you know 'bout these words inside my heart
before I lose my mind
Gotta find a way to reach you
tell you what I feel inside

Feel I'm falling, Feel I'm falling,
Feel I'm falling in love again
Hear it calling, hear it calling,
Should I let that old feeling back in

Ok let's go, gotta gather my thoughts
as I grab a paper and pen
Must remember just where it all started
just where it all began

Though it's all just a blur how this all just occurred
Oh this whirlwind romance 'tween a boy and a girl
Oh this feeling of bliss is so hard to resist
and the beat of my heart, yes it's starting to skip

I know that you might not feel the same way I feel
But I got to let you know that what I feel is real
