Sembreak - Eraserheads

Sembreak in the Philippines runs in the month of October. That is the time when college students have a break from a semester of school time. We normally start the school year in June til about first week of October then after 2 or 3 weeks of a semestral break, school year resumes.

This is the meaning of the song's title. There are schools observing tri-mester curriculum so they will have 2 sembreaks plus another summer break which runs in the month of March or April.

Here goes my English translation for the song:

=======================
Sembreak by Eraserheads

Dear Kim kamustang bakasyon mo (Dear Kim, how is your vacation?)
Ako heto pa rin nababato*
(Me, still here bored)
Bad trip talagan 'tong Meralco
(Bad trip with MERALCO**)
Bakit brownout pa rin dito
(Still brownout here)

Walang silbi sa bahay
(Useless in the house)
Kundi bumabad sa telepono
(SPend time on the telephone)
O kaya'y kasama ang buong barkada
(Or be with beers)
Nakatambay sa may kanto
(Stand by/doing nothing in the corner)

Naalala kita pag umuulan (SEMBREAK) (I remember you when it's raining - Sembreak)
Naalala kita pag giniginaw (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you when I feel cold)
Naalala kita pagkakain na (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you during meal time)
Naalala kita ilang bukas pa ba
(I remember you, how many tomorrows)
Bago tayo ay magkita
(Before we see each other)
Ako'y naiinip na bawat oras binibilang
(Im becoming impatient, counting every hour)
Sabik na masilayan ka-ha-hah
(Excited to see you)

Sira pa rin ang bisikleta
(My bike is out of order)
May gas wala namang kotse
(I have fuel but no car)
Naghihintay ng ulan
(Wait for the rain)
Basketball sa banyo
(Basketball in the toilet)
Sana ay may pasok na para at least
(I hope classes are here)
Meron akong baon
(At least I'll have my allowance)
Cutting classes dating raket
(Cutting classes, old racket/gimmick)
Rock and roll buong taon
(Rock and Roll the whole year)

Naalala kita pag umuulan (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you when it's raining - Sembreak)
Naalala kita pag giniginaw (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you when I feel cold)
Naalala kita pagkakain na (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you during meal time)
Naalala kita ilang bukas pa ba
(I remember you, how many tomorrows)
Bago tayo ay magkita
(Before we see each other)
Ako'y naiinip na bawat oras binibilang
(Im becoming impatient, counting every hour)
Sabik na masilayan ka-ha-hah
(Excited to see you)

Walang kayakap kundi gitara (No one to hug but my guitar)
Nangangati sa kaiisip sa'yo
(Itchy thinking of you)
Hanggang sa mabutas 'tong maong ko
(Til my jeans get torn)
Tsaka bibili uli ng bago
(Then I'll buy a new one)
Hanggang dito na lang ang liham ko
(My letter is til here)
Salamat sa atensyon mo
(Thanks for your attention)
Tsaka na lang pala yung utang ko
(Ill pay you my debt)
Pag nagkita na lang uli tayo oh wohh
(When we see each other again)

Naalala kita pag umuulan (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you when it's raining - Sembreak)
Naalala kita pag giniginaw (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you when I feel cold)
Naalala kita pagkakain na (SEMBREAK)
(I remember you during meal time)
Naalala kita ilang bukas pa ba
(I remember you, how many tomorrows)
Bago tayo ay magkita
(Before we see each other)
Ako'y naiinip na bawat oras binibilang
(Im becoming impatient, counting every hour)
Sabik na masilayan ka-ha-hah
(Excited to see you)
