Dahil Mahal Kita - Boyfriends

Another Boyfriends song, although I think Vic Sotto also sung this one. Dahil Mahal Kita means "Because I love you". Nice song just in time for the Heart's Day!. This is the other song running in my head while thinking about the "love month" February. I can't help to be emotional in times like these.

Anyway, this song is a karaoke and videoke favorite during those days. The phrase that says "Dahil mahal kita handa akong magparaya" which is translated as "Because I love you, I am willing to give way". We lack this kind of attitude in a lot of ways, that is my opinion. We seldom could show our affection when we raise our voice, when we go out on our own, when we push our thoughts into somebody else, when we are simply proud of what we do or who w are. We seldom give way. We often give major credit to our own doing, to our own thoughts, to our own feelings without even realizing that the other person has feelings too.

In psychology, I think they call this "egocentrism" (if my memory serves me right.) I said this charged to experience. There are times we are stubborn, unmindful of the others. I always complain I am tired without thinking that they too may be tired, perhaps even scolded by their boss or their clients during office hours. I don't know, but I guess people are really self-centered. Who aren't?

I guess I am lucky to have seen people who tirelessly loved their spouses despite the other's shortcomings. I became aware of what the word "commitment" meant. I am trying to visualize myself in that kind of situation. Am I up for the challenge? Hmmmm... let's find out. But for now, read the lyrics below.

My Translation of the song:
===========================================
Dahil Mahal Kita - Boyfriends
(Because I Love You)

Ano man ang sabihin nila (Whatever they say)
Ika'y patuloy kong mamahalin (I will continue to love you)
Maging sino ka man (Whoever you are)
Di na magbabago ang pag-ibig ko (My love will never change)

Dahil minamahal kita (Because I love you)
Walang makakapigil sa 'king damdamin. (Noone can stop what I'm feeling)

Upang ikaw ay ibigin ko ng lubos (So that I can love your enough)
Sasambahin lagi (I will always give you company)
Dahil mahal kita (Because I love yo)
Lahat ng bagay ay aking makakamtan (I can achieve everything)

Chorus:
At dahil mahal kita (And because I love you)
Manda akong magparaya (I am prepared to give way)
Kahit katumbas nito'y kasawian (Even if this means failure)
Dahil mahal kita (Because I love you)
Sa yo lamang liligaya (I will only be happy with you)
At di na muling iibig pa, haa! (And I will not love anymore)

Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko - Rico J. Puno

Straight from my part time work to law school, our Remedial Law teacher gave us a surprise Exam! Definitely, I was not prepared although I did my best in answering what I know about the problems presented in our exam. But my best isn't enough. I couldn't have studied the topic anyway so I was sure to fail. Too bad!

To lighten the mood, and while nothing pertinent matters flowing out of my brain, I thought of Valentine's day then I thought of this song. As I was waiting for my classmates to finish their essay, I pretended to answering the questions on my paper but I was already translating the lyrics of this song. The title is translated as "Even when my hair is white".

I just thought this would be my loveliest song in time for the V-day or Valentine's day. I thought of how it felt to be in love. It is majestic, it is magic, it is marvelous! What else? It sure makes the world go round. That is my view of love.

Have you fallen in love? Have you seen yourself being with the same person for more than 50 years of your life? Have you devoted yourself to this single individual for more than half of your life and meant something to you as your own? Have you cried yourself to sleep missing the person you love? Ahh, love!

Anyway, those are my thoughts for the day.

Below is my translation of the song.
============================

Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko - Rico J. Puno
(Even when my hair is white)

Kung tayo’y matanda na (When we are older)
Sana’y di tayo magbago (I hope we won't change)
Kailan ma’y, nasaan ma’y (Anytime, anywhere)
Ito ang pangarap ko (This is my wish)

Makuha mo pa kayang ako’y hagkan at yakapin ooh (Could you still kiss and hug me?)
Hanggang pagtanda natin (Until we grow older )
Nagtatanong lang sa `yo (I am just asking you)
Ako pa kaya’y ibigin mo (Will you still love me?)
Kung maputi na ang buhok ko (Even when my hair is already white)

Pagdating ng araw (The day will come)
Ang `yong buhok as puputi na rin (Your hair will also become white)
Sabay tayong mangangarap (We shall reminisce together)
Ng nakaraan sa `tin (our memories of the past)

Ang nakalipas ay ibabalik natin ooh (We shall bring back the past)
Ipapaalala ko sa `yo (I will remind them to you)
Ang aking pangako (My promise)
Na ang pag-ibig ko’y laging sa ‘yo (Is that my love will always be yours)
Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko (Even when my hair is white)

Kahit maputi o wala na ang buhok ko (Even when my hair becomes white or gone)
==========================

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Forever in Blue Jeans - Jason Castro

This song was just running in my head. I can clearly hear the voice of Jason Castro during an American Idol episode, singing this one. That was 2 years ago and don't dare say I have late reaction, because I do.

So what if I am hearing this voice in my ears right now? So what? I got an email message saying I have just received a "so and so amount" in my paypal from a blog review I made a couples of days ago. It is worth noting to me because, this is another first in all my different experiences in the blog worth. I shall never forget this moment.

I did not mention the amount because what is important is that my hobby is compensating me somehow, without any relevant hardship at all. It is really easy... plain and simple! Like Jason Castro perhaps. I miss him. I miss my ipod playing this one.

Neil Diamond - Forever In Blue Jeans Lyrics - Jason Castro

Money talks
But it don't sing and dance
And it don't walk
And long as I can have you
Here with me, I'd much rather be
Forever in blue jeans

Honey's sweet
But it ain't nothin' next to baby's treat
And if you pardon me
I'd like to say
We'll do okay
Forever in blue jeans

Maybe tonight
Maybe tonight, by the fire
All alone you and I
Nothing around
But the sound of my heart
And your sighs

Money talks
But it can't sing and dance
And it can't walk
And long as I can have you
Here with me, I'd much rather be
Forever in blue jeans, babe

And honey's sweet
But it ain't nothin' next to baby's treat
And if you pardon me I'd like to say
We'll do okay
Forever in blue jeans

Maybe tonight
Maybe tonight, by the fire
All alone you and I
Nothing around
But the sound of my heart
And your sighs

Money talks
But it can't sing and dance
And it can't walk
And long as I can have you
Here with me
I'd much rather be
Forever in blue jeans

And if you pardon me
I'd like to say
We'll do okay
Forever in blue jeans, babe
And long as I can have you
Here with me I'd much rather be
Forever in blue jeans, babe
