If You Asked Me To - Celine Dion / Angeline Quinto & Eric Santos

Another Celine Dion song for you today... this month of LOVE!
I have always loved Celine Dion songs and as much as I want to sing like her, that will remain a goal for now. I am working on it, ok? (LOL)  Here are my previous posts:
Water From the Moon
My Heart Will Go On

I just saw the movie trailer of ABS-CBN's Unofficially yours from youtube.  It's such an interesting movie, I think I want to see it when it's shown here in the province.



I fell like talking about love again. It's the "love fever" you know!

I was once in a situation that love is in-existent. I didn't know what it meant and how to define it. I still cannot defined it til now but I already have an experience of it.  I didn't know how to give importance to a person. I didn't know it would matter if I do some favor for them or not. It wouldn't really matter to me if I fail to talk to them or at least how they feel.

I thought love has to be confined with one person and I haven't found that person yet.  When I did, well, my world revolved around them. Everything was towards that person. I gave everything to that person to the neglect of the most special people in my life - my family!

That was the past. Now, my world is my family with a bonus and I don't think there's more I'd ask for when it comes to my love, my inspiration, my life.

Enjoy the lyrics and the video.


IF YOU ASKED ME TO

Used to be that I believed in something
Used to be that I believed in love
It's been a long time since I've had that feeling
I could love someone
I could trust someone
I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again darlin'
I said I'd never let nobody in 

But if you asked me to
I just might change my mind
And let you in my life forever
If you asked me to
I just might give my heart
And stay here in your arms forever
If you asked me to
If you asked me to 

But if you asked me to
I just might change my mind
And let you in my life forever
If you asked me to
I just might give my heart
And stay here in your arms forever
If you asked me to
If you asked me to

Ask me to, I will give my world to you baby
I need you now
Ask me to and I'll do anything for you baby, for you baby

(But if you asked me to...) 

All ya gotta do
All ya gotta do
'Are 'You 'Gotta do, is ask me to
I'll give you my world
I'll give you my heart
My everything, everything baby.

Just ask me to 

If you asked me to
I'd change my mind
I'll change my mind

I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

Happy Heart's day everyone.


It is just a tragic week that one of our most loved artists just passed away.  Whitney Houston was found lifeless in a hotel room.  This is all over the news. The Grammy Awards even had a segment honoring her.  I like Whitney Houston songs.  "Saving All my Love for You" is also a lovely song.  Add to that my personal favorite, "The Greatest Love of All".

This song entry of the day depicts of an unconditional love - a love that frees another and doesn't expect anything in return.  She just said "I will always love you" no matter what or where you are.  This song means so much to me because I have been trying to emulate the greatest love I have ever experienced.  The most unconditional love I have ever felt.  I bet you know by now that I am referring to my God's love for me.


I am just a human, I know, but this is what I strive for everyday - love unconditionally!  It has always been my motto that the world is a better place to live in if we have love.


Ever wondered why love has no easy definition? Because loving is not an easy thing to do especially to our enemies.  But let us not go farther.  We don't even love our parents, or our friends, or our relatives.  We easily express our abhorrence them.  Giving it the benefit of the doubt, perhaps we love them. But do we show it?  Do we say it? There are a lot of aspects related to love that is why it has no easy meaning.  Love has no easy way. Love is a sacrifice but you will agree with me when I say, "Love is a wonderful feeling".


So let this song remind us of today's occasion, the Heart's Day! Happy V-Day everyone!




I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
Whitney Houston


If I should stay, 
I would only be in your way. 
So I'll go, but I know 
I'll think of you every step of the way. 

And I will always love you. 
I will always love you. 
You, my darling you. Hmm. 

Bittersweet memories 
that is all I'm taking with me. 
So, goodbye. Please, don't cry. 
We both know I'm not what you, you need. 

And I will always love you. 
I will always love you. 

(Instrumental solo) 

I hope life treats you kind 
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of. 
And I wish to you, joy and happiness. 
But above all this, I wish you love. 

And I will always love you. 
I will always love you. 
I will always love you. 
I will always love you. 
I will always love you. 
I, I will always love you. 

You, darling, I love you. 
Ooh, I'll always, I'll always love you.

Mi Corazon - Don Moen

Tis the month of February, the month of love for most people. I thought it would be best to talk about my first love. I grinned as I mentioned my first love back there. That is a good sign because I am happy to be talking about love.  Love is the happiest feeling, don't you agree?

You love someone or something when you spend time with them. You beat all odds just to be with them on time; you calendar dates with these people, you block all other plans over the weekend when a loved one is suddenly in need of your presence. You waste your cellphone load to call them and give them comfort.  You do errands for them, beyond expectations. You are selfless in most aspects of your life at the beck and call of a loved one.

We sacrifice for love. We ignore the words of other people; we reach for the stars, we promise the moon, the earth and the sky; anything for love.

There is this one song that keeps playing in my ipod and it talks about my first love. Mi Corazon by Don Moen.  It is a Spanish word literally meaning "My Heart".

The contents of my heart is my first love.  The biggest portion of that heart belongs to God's people. I love my God and one way to show that love for him is to be loving towards other people; He's creation!  This is the reason why as a young kid, I tried to please everyone. (But later on I learned that we cannot please everybody).  When you love, you can't hurt and when you can't hurt, this could be a better place to live in. Mother Teresa once said that: “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

I may not be as tender as Mother Teresa but we can love as much tender as we could.  Spread love!


Mi Corazon lyrics by Don Moen

My heart is filled with songs of praise
You gave me hope, You made a way
Now I long to live in Your presence
For all my days

Chorus
My soul sings, my spirit shouts
With every breath I'm crying out
I want to live for You alone
You have captured my heart, mi corazon
Lord, I give You my whole heart, mi corazon

Amazing grace has recued me
You paid the price, You set me free
I will sing Your praises forever
My Savior and King

Bridge
I will give You glory, tell the wondrous story
How You rescued me
I'm the guilty one, but You sacrificed Your Son
Your One and only
Now I stand before You blameless and holy
