memory gap…

March 30, 2008

Nafeel mo na bang yung akala mo wala lang…
Friends lang kayo…
Tropa lang…

Tapos isang araw, kausap mo siya…
at habang nakatitig ka naisip mo na lang..

“Sino to?!”

Lagot! memory gap.


friends and lovers…

March 30, 2008

One good thing about friendships is that both people can stand up for their opinion and oppose each other. And yet at the end of the day, they come to drink beer and smoke and share good old memories which is in contrast to lo lovers in which a point must arrive where one has to step back and give up his or her position in order to maintain the relationship. Don’t you agree?

Kaya nga dapat, if you are lovers, always argue in the nude. For whatever stands or opinions you have, you’d always end up in different positions. Hehehe. 😀


Mistake… disappointment…

March 30, 2008

i told u i was going to christian’s house because i didnt want to keep anything from u.i expected u to understand why i wanted to do that because youre the only one who knew of our situation.then sasabihin mo kasalanan un?na twice ko ginawa?the only mistake i can see i did was that i told u because i thought u’d understand.u know that he was my bestfriend & that he needs me because of whats been going on.im not mad, im just so disappointed.after it all, i didnt really feel like telling you anything anymore.not even what i had for lunch,can u believe it?i know u deserve more than this but like i said before,its not something u have to live with.i think im ready to let go & not be selfish anymore.

do u think its easy for me to say something like that? and to you? theres a reason why i cant always bring myself to talk abt things like these.talking abt it just makes it more real and more necessary for me to go through.but it doesnt matter anymore.i dont want to go through these things anymore.im so tired of everything.

the reason why i was like that was because i wanted to tell you pero tulog ka ng tulog.fine pagod ka nun.but dexter, you’re lucky that i even told you at all or would we be better off if i didnt say anyhing?

all i know is that i cant do this anymore.you & i or whatever u call this thing. or at least not for the meantime. there’s too much things,people and demands going on, i cant handle it


Way Back into Love

March 28, 2008

[Cora]
I’ve been living with a shadow overhead
I’ve been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I’ve been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can’t seem to move on

[Alex]
I’ve been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need them again someday
I’ve been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

[Cora & Alex]
All I wanna do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

[Cora]
I’ve been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I’ve been searching but I just don’t see the signs
I know that it’s out there
There’s gotta be something for my soul somewhere

[Alex]
I’ve been looking for someone to shed some light
Not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I’m open to your suggestions

[Cora & Alex]
All I wanna do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I’m hoping you’ll be there for me in the end

[Cora]
There are moments when I don’t know if it’s real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

[Cora & Alex]
All I wanna do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I’m hoping you’ll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I’ll be there for you in the end
