In one way or another we are looking for something…..

In one way or another we are looking for something…..
Do You Know Where You're Going To?
Theme From Mahogany
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life's been showing you
Where are you going to?
Do you know?
Do you get what you're hoping for?
When you look behind you there's no open doors
What are you hoping for?
Do you know?
Once we were standing still in time
Chasing the fantasies
That filled our minds
You knew how I loved you
But my spirit was free
Laughing at the questions
That you once asked of me
Now looking back at all we've planned
We let so many dreams
Just slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long?
Before we see
How sad the answers
To those questions can be
Do you know?

Metal Rat

Metal Rat
This type of Rat is most likely to be idealistic in thought, vivid in speech and actions and intensely emotional. He may cover up his feelings by presenting himself as a happy and charming personality. In reality, he is easily moved to jealousy, anger, selfishness and possessiveness. His outlook will be based on what his senses can appreciate. He loves money but will not hoard it and won't mind spending if he can get good value and quality. He knows how to invest wisely, He will not be as romantic as the Rats of the other elements but could be sensual and moralistic at the same time.
THE RAT PERSONALITY
The charm of the Rat personality is as universally known and loved as the Walt Disney character, Mickey Mouse. He could be forthright and honest but in such a disarming manner that you find yourself at a disadvantage. Remarkably easy to get along with, hard working and thrifty, he will be generous only to those he is inordinately fond of, so if you get an expensive gift from him, you should certainly rate yourself high in his esteem. However, in spite of his penny-pinching ways, he will never be found wanting for admirers as he emits such fantastic appeal. On the surface, a Rat person may appear reserved, but this is not so. He is never as quiet as he may look. Actually, he is easily agitated but is able to maintain his self-control, which explains why he is so popular and has a multitude of friends. The Rat person is usually a bright, happy and sociable personality. Occasionally, you may come across a supercritical or grouchy, fault-finding one. But on the whole, he enjoys parties and other large gatherings. He will endeavor to join exclusive clubs and as a rule can always be found in a close circle of friends or fellow conspirators. He likes getting involved and is very outgoing. The Rat really cherishes his friends, associates and family relations; at times he gets entangled with other people's lives and affairs because he can't easily rid himself of strong emotional attachments once he has made them. Still, one can never be exactly sure of how and where he stands. His capacity to love can only be overruled by his shrewdness and love of money. A Rat boss may demonstrate great concern about whether his employees are getting enough exercise or eating a balanced diet. In his heart, he sincerely cares about their welfare; he will visit them when they are sick and make their problem his problems, yet when it comes to giving them that well-deserved raise in salary, he will hedge and be a little stingy. A lot of arm twisting and collective bargaining is needed when it comes to parting a Rat from his money. The Rat lady may continually amaze you by being a model of frugality. She is forever distributing old clothes, recycling toys, buying or selling secondhand items, stretching meals, leftovers and the family budget until they could positively scream. However, she may not care to apply these same rigid standards when dealing with her precious offspring. If her children know how to get around her, she will find it hard to deny them anything. Rat people are rarely tightwads where their families are concerned. At times, the Rat is decidedly clannish. Maybe there is some truth about safety in numbers. He never worries about having another mouth to feed and may allow his relatives, friends, etc., to stick around his home and live off him. Why? Because the crafty Rat will always be able to find something for them to do to earn their keep. Laggards, professional bums and freeloaders will all get put to work swiftly in his household. Charity has its limits. Trust the efficient Rat. The Rat native keeps his secrets well but he can be an expert at weeding other people's gardens where confidences are concerned. He has few qualms about using vital information gathered or capitalizing on the mistakes of others. After all, you certainly don't expect him to ignore the knock of opportunity, especially when he has had his ear glued to the door so much of the time. As much as he likes to keep his feelings to himself, one can always tell when he is upset as he tends to become edgy, curt and impertinent. Some are just absolute nags. Since the Rat person is also active and most industrious, he is irritated most by idleness and waste. On the negative side, the Rat person loves to gossip, criticize, compare, carp and bargain - usually over unimportant issues. He buys things he does not really need and is always taken in by bargains. Maybe it is his accumulative urge. Mementos, souvenirs and hoards of sentimental junk will be found tucked away in his room and in his heart. He also has the tendency to be the neighborhood's busybody, though more often than not, his intentions are good. The Rat is reputed to make an excellent writer and this is not surprising at all. He makes it a point to know practically everything about everyone in town. He keeps tabs, has an uncanny eye for detail, a good memory and is incredibly inquisitive. The native of this year will be successful in whatever he chooses to do because like his sign, the Rat, he will adapt himself to the situation at hand. He has the ability to cope with difficulties and is at best during a crisis. Levelheaded and alert, he possesses keen intuition, foresight and business acumen. Adversity merely serves to sharpen his wits and he is always busy cooking up some scheme. There is no need to worry about the Rat's safety as he always checks out the back door before entering any transaction. This is in case he has to make a quick or untimely exit from the scene. Self-preservation is high on his list of priorities and he usually takes the path with the least repercussions. If you want to get out of trouble fast, follow the Rat's course. He has a built-in alarm and defense mechanism that rarely fails. His stumbling block is overambition. He tries to do too much too soon and as a result scatters his energies. If he can avoid doing this and perseveres in finishing what he's started, a person of this sign will end up wealthy, which is just as well, as the Rat loves money! Although the Rat is equipped with an inborn ability to sense danger and therefore should know when to stop, he often has great difficulty in relying on his own sound judgement because he simply cannot pass up bargains and so-called "good deals". Alas, he ends up falling into the same old trap. He will have no problems in life if only he can conquer his greed and quit while he is ahead. In his lifetime, the covetous Rat has to suffer at least one large financial blow before he learns that avarice does not pay off. However, it is most unlikely to find a poor Rat native, and if you do, well, with his resourcefulness, you can bet he will not remain poor for long. It will be totally out of character if he hasn't got a nest egg hidden away somewhere. Being the true sentimentalist of the Chinese cycle, the Rat is not only deeply attached to his children but to his elders as well. Parents with children born in this year can be sure that they will be well regarded and cared for by them. Unlike the Dragon child, who may demand perfection of his parents, the Rat youngster will have infinite trust in his parents, cater to their needs and overlook their shortcomings. Aside from doting on their children and husbands, the Rat mother revels in the fact that she is a superb homemaker. She will follow her husband's career development like his campaign manager, drive the children to piano, ballet and violin lessons and take on so much social activity that your head would spin. A husband belonging to this sign, on the other hand, can be found helping out with household chores and will like to spend his holidays and weekends with the family. The time of birth plays an important role in the Rat's way of life. Needless to say, one born in the evening will have a more hectic and strenuous life (night Rats have to scurry around constantly in search for food) than his brother born during the quiet of the day. The Rat person will be attracted to the people of the Ox sign, whom he finds strong, reliable and appreciative of the devotion he has to offer. Equally compatible with the Rat will be the mighty people of the Dragon year. He will also find the Snake attractive and intelligent, and may make a suitable alliance with him. He is captivated by power and brilliance, so the Rat will always fall for the irresistible Monkey. He agrees with the clever Monkey's way of doing things and the Monkey, on the other hand, will be overjoyed to find the Rat on his own cunning wavelength. Tiger, Dog, Boar or other Rat person will have no trouble teaming up with a Rat. He will come into many conflicts with persons born in the Horse sign. The Horse is just too independent and changeable for the clannish Rat. It would also be unwise for him to marry the Rooster. The Rooster, being the intrepid dreamer, will exasperate the practical Rat no end. A marriage with the Sheep is also questionable; the indulgent Sheep will probably squander the Rat's hard-earned savings.
he Rat Child
A child born in the year of the Rat will be sweet and loving. he may be shy, but inwardly he is fiercely competitive. Often, he resorts to crying to get more attention and usually clings to one or two people with whom he identifies. Although he has a charming disposition, he is possessive of parents and friends and jealous of attention given to others. He will talk early. He likes to eat (mention of his favorite foods always makes him light up) and he takes an early interest in cooking and other household chores. Being affectionate and demonstrative, he will not like being left alone. He will enjoy group play, can concentrate on detailed work and make friends easily. You can depend on him to keep things tidy or at least know where they are. The Rat child will start to show his calculating nature very early in life. He will insist that he get the bigger half of the apple, exactly the same number of cookies as his older brother (preferably more, but under no circumstances less). It will be hard to cheat him on anything. He learns fast and never misses a trick. He takes regular stock of his possessions-- so don't try to give away any of his old toys thinking he won't miss it. Then again, if you consult him, be prepared for a struggle as the selfish little Rat won't part with anything easily. With younger children, the Rat child will tend to be motherly; at his worst, he will boss them around mercilessly. Give the proper encouragement, he will be ambitious in school. He will be most eager to participate in anything that stimulates his sharp mental powers. The vivacious Rat will be an avid reader. He will learn the importance of the written word easily and be able to express himself well. Many of the world's greatest writers and historians were born in the year of the Rat.

IT MIGHT BE YOU

IT MIGHT BE YOU (Stephen Bishop)
Time, I've been passing time watching trains go by
All of my life
Lying on the sand watching seabirds fly
Wishing there could be someone
Waiting home for me
Something's telling me it might be you
It's telling me it might be you
All of my life
Looking back as lovers go walking past
All of my life
Wondering how they met and what makes it last
If I found the place would I recognize the face
Something's telling me it might be you
It's telling me it might be you
So many quiet walks to take
So many dreams to wake and there's so much love to make
I think we’re gonna need some time
Maybe all we need is time
And it's telling me it might be you
All of my life
I've been saving love songs and lullabies
And there's so much more
No one's ever heard before
Something's telling me it might be you
Yeah, it's telling me it must be you and
I'm feeling it'll just be you
All of my life
It's you, it's you I've been waiting for all of my life
Maybe it's you Maybe it's you I've been waiting for all of my life.

What Matters Most

It's not how long we held each other's hand
What matters is how well we loved each other
It's not how far we travelled on our way
Of what we found to say
It's not the spring you see, but all the shades of green
It's not how long I held you in my arms
What matters is how sweet the years together
It's not how many summertimes we had to give to fall
The early morning smiles we tearfully recall
What matters most is that we loved at all.
It's not how many summertimes we had to give to fall
The early morning smiles we tearfully recall
What matters most is that we loved at all.
What matters most is that we loved at all.

my grown up Christmas List

Do you remember me?
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies
Well I'm all grown up now
Can you still help somehow?
I'm not a child but my heart still can dream
So here's my lifeful wish
My grown up Christmas List
Not for myself
But for a world in need
No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal our hearts
Every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will never end
This is my grown up Christmas List
May kindness rules our lives
Not just the strong survive
Sweet tears for all the thousand years on mind
This is the world I pray
We will all share some way
Help me begin by reaching out my hand
No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal our hearts
Every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will never end
This is my grown up Christmas List
Why does this illusion call the innocence of you?
Maybe when the time believe we can find the truth
No...
No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal our hearts
Every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will never end
This is my grown up Christmas List

She got big boobs, big butt but low I.Q.

Love Me For What I Am We fell in love On the first night that we met Together We've been happy I have very few regrets The ordinary problems Have not been hard to face But lately little changes Have been slowly taking place You're always finding something Is wrong in what I do But you can't rearrange my life Because it pleases you (*) You've got lo love me For what I am For simply being me Don't love me For what you intend Or hope that I will be And if you're only using me To feed your fantasy You're really not in love So let me go I must be free If what you want Isn't natural for me I won't pretend to keep you What I am I have to be The picture of perfection Is only on your mind For all your expectations Love can never be designed We either take each other For everything we are Or leave the life We've made behind And make another start Repeat (*) And if you're only using me To feed your fantasy You're really not in love So let me go I must be free You're really not in love So let me go I must be free

Call me irresponsible

Call me irresponsible – Frank Sinatra
Writer(s): Cahn/Van Heusen
Call me irresponsible - call me unreliable
Throw in undependable too
Do my foolish alibis bore you
Well I'm not too clever - I just adore you
Call me unpredictable - tell me I'm impractical
Rainbows I'm inclined to pursue
Call me irresponsible - yes I'm unreliable
But it's undeniably true - I'm irresponsibly mad for you

Breathe

Breathe – Faith Hill
I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way
I watch the sunlight dance across your face
and I've Never been this swept away
All my thoughts seem to settle on the breeze
When I'm lying wrapped up in your arms
The whole world just fades away
The only thing I hear
Is the beating of your heart
'Cause I can feel you breathe
It's washing over me
Suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
The slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe
In a way I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumbling down
I'm closer than I've ever felt before

Be my LOve - blogging from Calgary

Artist: Mario Lanza Song: Be my love Album: Be My Love [" Be My Love " CD] Be my love, for no one else can end this yearning;
This need that you and you alone create.
Just fill my arms the way you've filled my dreams,
The dreams that you inspire with ev'ry sweet desire.
Be my love, and with your kisses set me burning;
One kiss is all that I need to seal my fate,
And, hand-in-hand, we'll find love's promised land.
There'll be no one but you for me, eternally,
If you will be my love.
Be my love, for no one else can end this yearning;
This need that you and you alone create.
Just fill my arms the way you've filled my dreams,
The dreams that you inspire with ev'ry sweet desire.
Be my love, and with your kisses set me burning;
One kiss is all that I need to seal my fate,
And, hand-in-hand, we'll find love's promised land.
There'll be no one but you for me, eternally,
If you will be my love.

Puso’y koy palayain mo

Bakit kailangang ikulong mo ako sa maling pagmamahal?
Bakit kailangang magdusa ng walang hangan
Bakit nilagyan ng tinik ang aking puso
LOVE IS STRONGER FAR THAN WE
(Plus Fort Que Nous)
(Francis Lai)
Rodel Naval
We tell ourselves
another season
We turn away
and find the reason
We close our eyes
to what we see
But love is stronger
far than we.
When we are close,
the world is singin'
And when we touch,
the moonlight is wingin'
And there's no way
to disagree
For love is stronger
far than we. * When hearts are
meant for caring,
And lives are
meant for sharing,
Then we are joined
by destiny
For love is stronger
far than we.
Yes, we may say
another season
May say goodbye and
find the reason
But love decides
how things must be
For love is stronger
far than we ...
Love is stronger
far than we.

I Just Fall In Love Again

Dreamin', I must be dreamin'
or am I really lyin' here with you?
Baby, you take me in your arms,
and though I'm wide awake
I know my dream is comin' true.
And, oh, I just fall in love again;
just one thought and then it happens every time.
And there I go, I just fall in love again,
and when I do can't help myself
I fall in love with you.
Magic, it must be magic,
the way I hold you and the night just seems to fly.
Easy for you to take me to a star.
Heaven is that moment when I look into your eyes. (chorus)
Can't help myself I fall in love with you.

Lagi nalang umu-ulan
Parang walang katapusan
Tulad ng paghihirapko ngayon
Parang walang humpay
Sa kabila ng lahat ng aking pagsisikap
Na limutin ka ay di parin magawa
Hindi naman ako tanga
Alam ko na wala kana
Pero mahirap lang na tanggapin
Di na kita kapiling
Iniwan mo ako nag-iisa
Sa gitna ng dilim at basing-basa pa sa ulan
Pero huwag mag-alala
dina kita gagambalain
Alam ko naman ngayon
may kapiling ka nang-iba
Tanging hiling ko sa’yo
Na tuwing umu-ulan
Maalala mo sanang may
Nagmamahal sa’yo. Ako…..
Lalalalalalalalala….

seeing you in my dream...again

seeing you in my dream...again,
my bestfriend HALINA, whereever you are...
Saan ka man naroroon sinta
Pag-ibig kong wagas
Ang iyong madarama
Kailan pa man sa iyo'y di lilimot
Pusong uhaw sa iyong pag-irog
Saan ka man naroroon sinta
Pangarap ko'y ikaw
Pagkat mahal kita
Asahan mong sa habang panahon
Alaala kita
Saan ka man naroroon
Asahan mong sa habang panahon
Alaala kita
Saan ka man naroroon

Genuine love cannot be seen, it can only be touch in your wild imagination - WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

Take me as I am
Put your hand in mine now and forever
Darling here I stand, stand before you now
Deep inside I always knew
It was you, you and me
Two hearts drawn together bound by destiny
It was you and you for me
Every road leads to your door
Every step I take for evermore
Refrain:
Just say you love me for the rest of your life
I gotta lot of love and I don't want to let go
Will you still love me for the rest of my life?
Cause I can't go on, no, I can't go on
I can't go on if I'm on my own
Take me as I am
Put your heart in mine, stay with me forever
Cause I am just a man who never understood
I never had a thing to prove
Till there was you, you and me
Then it all came clear so suddenly
How close to you that I wanna be

THERE'LL BE SAD SONGS TO MAKE YOU CRY - Enthusiastic approval

My only sister is the most adorable woman I have ever met, akala ko nga
lalake siyang tomboy, cause apat kaming magkakapatid na lalake, ako ang
eldest kaya ako ang pinakamahigpit magbantay sa kanya, wala ngang sigang
nakaligaw sa kanya sa lugar namin pero naligawan naman siya ng
seaman ( seaman-loloko) eventually naging husband niya – lahat kami
ay hindi boto dito ke seaman except my lola who gave her
enthusiastic approval, hindi ko nga alam
kung ano ang sinuhol ni seaman sa lola ko….eto nga pala yong
lovesong nila...
Sometimes I wonder by the look in your eyes
When I'm standing beside you there's a fever burning deep inside.
Is there another in your memory?
Do you think of that someone when you hear that special melody?
I always stop and think of you
Especially when the words of love song touch the very heart of me.
There'll be sad songs to make you cry, love songs often do,
They can touch the heart of someone new saying I love you, I love you.
I often wonder how it could be you loving me, two hearts in perfect harmony.
I'll count the hours until that day, the rhapsody plays a melody for you and me.
Until the moment that you give your love to me,
You're the one I care for, the one I will wait for.
There'll be sad songs to make you cry, love songs often do,
They can touch the heart of someone new saying I love you, ooh ooh ooh, oh.
You're my desire, you take me higher.
My love is like a river running so deep.
Until the moment that you give your love to me,
You're the one I care for, the one that I will wait for,
There'll be sad songs to make you cry, love songs often do,
They can touch the heart of someone new saying I love you. Ah. Ah.
There'll be sad songs to make you cry, love songs often do,
They can touch the heart of someone new saying I love you, I love you.
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do. Ooh.
Saying I love you. (Spoken) I love you.

THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM ...33 years ago

33 yrs ago, I was then in grade 6, my teacher–tita ( close relative)
asked us to write an English composition on what 10 things we want to
accomplished within the next 30–40 yrs, she said that she will sent
these letters 33 yrs after or before to all of her students before
she died (her health now is failing) if possible , if we had
accomplished something, I almost forgot this writing composition
in a form of a letter, until last week my sister-in-law have her
vacation last month in Pinas, since five of her former students
were close relative, we were able to receive our letters,
These were my goal then, 33 yrs ago...
1. passed the Phil Science High School Entrance Examination (coming from a public elementary school, this is a classic suntok sa buwan attempt) and be a lawyer someday...open and still achievable to be a lawyer, failed the entrance by a mere one point but i did not regret i since i got two engineering scholarship in Europe
2. travel within Phil and outside Phil...accomplished
3. be a US Navy or a cadet in Phil Military Academy...attempted but failed in physical exam, high blood daw ako
4. get married and raised a family...accomplished
5. buy a house in Baguio or Taal...I can do that now, but I will wait till 55
6. buy a Mercedez Benz...I can do that now but for economic reason I will
wait till my youngest son finished university
7. be an international chess grandmaster and be hired in the top corporation in the Phil...matanda na siguro ako para maging grandmaster, got hired in the country's biggest telecom company without a connection
8. buy a house by the sea and retired...wait till 55
9. built a new house for my mom...achieved
10. managed my dad’s business...it’s ok, my brother is managing it
Just imagine how much we can accomplished or not accomplished within than last 33
yrs...
To dream the impossible dream,
to fight the unbeatable foe,
to bear with unbearable sorrow,
to run where the brave dare not go...
To right the unrightable wrong,
to love pure and chaste from afar,
to try when your arms are too weary
to reach the unreachable star!
This is my quest
to follow that star
no matter how hopeless,
no matter how far
To fight for the right
without question or pause,
to be willing to march into hell
for a heavenly cause!
And I know
if I'll only be true
to this glorious quest
that my heart
will be peaceful and calm
when I'm laid to my rest.
And the world will be better for this
that one man, scorned and covered with scars,
still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable stars!
i don't know where this road and the journey called life
will lead me but still...
want some of the items above to be accomplished....

DANNY'S SONG - Making The Same Mistake

It was 1986, I was then 25, my younger brother was just 19 and just passed the
engineering board exam but he was not able to make it to top 10, he said he
just made some mistakes which cost him the top ten slots, I told him IN LIFE
DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN, and I made another joke, is marrying my
sister-in-law ( his long time childhood sweetheart) a mistake, then all I
heard was a grin, kuya, if loving and marrying your sis-in-law was a mistake,
I would like to commit that mistake again and again…..and I believed him…this
was their love song then...
Loggins and Mesina
Danny's Song
People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one
We've just begun, I think I'm gonna have a son
He will be like you and me, free as a dove
Conceived in love, the sun is gonna shine above
Even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with ya honey
Everything will bring a chain of love
In the mornin' when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything's gonna be all right
Love a girl who holds the world in a paper cup
Drink it up, love her and she'll bring you luck
If ya find she helps your mind, better take her home
Oh dontcha live alone, try to earn what lovers own
Even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with ya honey
Everything will bring a chain of love
In the mornin' when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything's gonna be all right
Even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with ya honey
Everything will bring a chain of love
In the mornin' when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything's gonna be all right
Even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with ya honey
Everything will bring a chain of love
In the mornin' when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything's gonna be all right

LORD, help me to remember, that nothing will happen to me today, that YOU and I can’t handle – EL CONDOR MI PASA

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.
Yes I would.
If I could,
I surely would.
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
Yes I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.
CHORUS
Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.
I'd rather be a forest than a street.
Yes I would.
If I could,
I surely would.
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.

RIKKI DON'T LOSE THAT NUMBER

STEELY DAN
We hear you're leaving, that's o. k.
I thought our little wild time had just begun
I guess you kind of scared yourself
You turn and run
But if you have a change of heart
Rikki, don't lose that number
You don't wanna call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki, don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it feel better
when you get home
I have a friend in town, he's heard your name
We can go out driving on slow hand row
We could stay inside and play games
I don't know
And you could have a change of heart
Refrain
You tell yourself you're not my kind
But you don't even know your mind
And you could have a change of heart
Rikki, don't lose that number
Rikki, don't lose that number

to forget you is just - IMPOSSIBLE

It's impossible
Tell the sun to leave the sky
It's just impossible
It's impossible
Ask a baby not to cry
It's just impossible
Can I hold you
Closer to me
And not feel you
Going through me
Split the second
That I never think of you
Oh how impossible
Can the ocean
Keep from rushing to the shore
It's just impossible
If I hold you
Could I ever want for more
It's just impossible
And tomorrow
Should you ask me for the world
Somehow I'd get it
I would sell my very soul
And not regret it
For to live without your love
Is just impossible
Can the ocean
Keep from rushing to the shore
It's just impossible
If I hold you
Could I ever want for more
It's just impossible
And tomorrow
Should you ask me for the world
Somehow I'd get it
I would sell my very soul
And not regret it
For to live without your love
Is just impossible
It's impossible
It's impossible
It's impossible

YOU AND ME AGAINST THE WORLD - i wanna keep you from harm, real or imaginary...

Helen Reddy
You and me against the world,
Sometimes it seems like you and me against the world,
When all the others turn their backs and walk away,
You can count on me to stay.
Remember when the circus came to town
How you were frightened by the clown,
Wasn't it nice to be around someone that you knew,
Someone who was big and strong and looking out for .....
You and me against the world,
Sometimes it seems like you and me against the world
And for all the times we've cried, I always felt that
God was on our side.
And when one of us is gone,
And one of us is left to carry on,
Then remembering will have to do,
Our memories alone will get us through
Think about the days of me and you,
Of you and me against the world.

Lost without your Love - Wala Lang


Lost and all alone
I always thought that I could make it on my own
Since you left I hardly make it through the day
My tears get in the way
And I need you back to stay
I wander through the night
And search the world to find
The words to make it right
All I want is just the way it used to be
With you here close to me
I’ve got to make you see
That I’m lost without your love
Life without you isn’t worth the trouble of
I’m as helpless as a ship without a wheel
A touch without a feel
I can’t believe it’s real...
And someday soon I’ll wake
And find my heart won’t have to break
Yes I’m lost without your love
Life without you isn’t worth the trouble of
All I want is just the way it used to be
I need you here with me
Oh darlin’ can’t you see...
If we had love before
We can have it back once more

Love won't let me wait - on an early morning dew that damped and cherished this rose...



I need to have you next to me in more ways than one
And I refuse to leave till I see the mornin' sun
The time is right, you hold me tight
And love's got me high
Please tell me, “Yes” and don't say, “No”
Honey, not tonight
Move a little close to me, you owe it to yourself
And I will selfishly take a little for myself
And it's because of you
That love won't let me wait
Yeah, yeah
The time is right, turn down the lights
And take my hand, ooh, ooh, yeah
We'll take a flight and spend the night
In Wonderland
And I need to have you next to me in more ways than one
And I refuse to leave till I see the mornin' sun
Creep through your window pane
Because love won't let me wait
Not another minute
Ooh...ooh...ooh...yeah...yeah...
And I need your love so desperately and only you can set me free
When I make love to you, we'll explode in ecstasy
And I won't take the blame
That love won't let me wait
Love won't, no, no, no
Love won't, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
(Love won't let me wait)
Yeah...yeah...
Love won't
I said
(Love won't let me wait)
My baby
My temperature's risin', ooh
(Love won't let me wait) Won't let me
Not another minute

Baby, baby
(I can't wait) I can't wait (I can't wait) I can't wait, I can't wait (I can't wait)
I can't wait, no, no, no, can't wait

God may not give you what you want, But surely He will give you what you need….what a wonderful world


Tim Horton's Outside Facade
Tim Horton's Inside Facade
Last night, me and my new trainee Turkish engineer alalay went out for a coffee at
Tim Horton’s, the guy ahead of me,a cold wandering soul (a Toronto bum) was
buying large coffee (cost about a dollar and 40 cents) and I saw him just
holding just five cents in his cold dirty hands begging for a coffee
from the Filipino Cashier to give him a coffee for only five cents, so what I
did is talk to him in Tagalog...pakibigyan mo na lang siya ng kape ako ang
magbabayad...then the cashier told the...bum...the guy next to you is buying
you a coffee...what I next heard form the bum is just a smile...and thank
you...i said no problem...you are most welcome...for me a dollar and forty cents
was just a very small percentage of my hourly wage working as telecom project
manager here in toronto...sabi noong Filipino cashier...sana daw hindi
ko daw binili ng kape yong bum kasi lagi daw namimihasa na raw dahil araw-araw
daw begging for coffee tong bum na to...at this coffee store...sabi ko...ok lang
sa akin yon and I said to myself...what is important that God is still giving
me a good job and some spare Canadian moolah to buy my self a coffee and this
old cold wandering soul...

What a Wonderful World
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.
I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Suddenly - To My High School Sweetee


I used to think that love was just a fairy tale
Until that first hello
until that first smile.
But if I had to do it all again I wouldn't change a thing
'Cause this love is everlasting.
Suddenly - life has new meaning to me.
There's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
You wake up and suddenly you're in love.
Girl
you're everything a man could want and more.
One thousand words are not enough to say what I feel inside.
Holding hands as we walk along the shore
Never felt like this before
now you're all I'm living for.
Suddenly - life has new meaning to me. . . .
Each day I pray this love affair would last forever.
Suddenly - life has new meaning to me. . . .
There's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
You wake up and suddenly you're in love.
There's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
You wake up and suddenly you're in love.

A DAY IN A LIFE OF A FOOL


A day in the life of a fool
A sad and a long lonely day
I walk the avenue
And hope I'll run into
The welcome sight of you
Coming my way
I stop just across from your door
But you're never home any more
So back to my room
And there in the gloom
I cry tears of good bye
(that's the way it will be every day in the life of fool)

Photographs and Memories


Photographs and memories
Christmas cards you sent to me
All that I have are these
To remember you
Memories that come at night
Take me to another time
Back to a happier day
When I called you mine
But we sure had a good time
When we started way back when
Morning walks and bedroom talks
Oh how I loved you then
Summer skies and lullabies
Nights we couldn’t say good-bye
And of all of the things that we knew
Not a dream survived
Photographs and memories
All the love you gave to me
Somehow it just can’t be true
That’s all I’ve left of you
But we sure had a good time
When we started way back when
Morning walks and bedroom talks
Oh how I loved you then

RUN TO YOU


I know that when you look at me
There's so much that you just don't see
But if you would only take the time
I know in my heart you'd find
Oh, oh, a girl who's scared sometimes
Who isn't always strong
Can't you see the hurt in me?
I feel so all alone
(Chorus:)
I wanna run to you
Ooh, ooh
I wanna run to you
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Won't you hold me in your arms
And keep me safe from harm?
I wanna run to you
Ooh, ooh
But if I come to you
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Tell me, will you stay
Or will you run away?
Each day, each day I play the role
Of someone always in control
But at night I come home and turn the key
There's nobody there, no one cares for me
Oh, oh, what's the sense
Of trying hard to find your dreams
Without someone to share it with
Tell me what this means
(Repeat chorus)
(Bridge:)
I need you here
I need you here to wipe away my tears
To kiss away my fears
If you only knew how much...
(Repeat chorus)

REMEMBER ME THIS WAY


Every now and then
We find a special friend
Who never lets us down
Who understands it all
Reaches out each time you fall
You're the best friend that I've found
I know you can't stay
A part of you will never ever go away
Your heart will stay
I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life would just be kind
To such a gentle mind
If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way
Hmm....this way
I don't need eyes to see
The love you bring to me
No matter where I go
And I know that you'll be there
Forever more apart of time, you're everywhere
I'll always cares
(Repeat)
And I'll be right behind your shoulder watching you I'll be standing by your side and all you do And I won't ever leave As long as you believe You just believe (Repeat *)  Posted by Picasa

JUST WHEN I NEEDED YOU MOST


You packed in the morning
I stared out the window
And I struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn’t stand in your way
Now I miss you more
Than I missed you before
And now where I’ll find comfort, God knows
’cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
Yes, you left me
Just when I needed you most
Now most every morning
I stare out the window
I think about where you might be
I’ve written you letters that I’d like to send
If you would just send one to me
’cause I need you more
Than I needed before
And now where I’ll find comfort, God knows
’cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
Yes, you left me
Just when I needed you most
You packed in the morning
I stared out the window
And I struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn’t stand in your way
Now I love you more
Than I loved you before And now where I’ll find comfort, God knows
’cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
You left me

Sa bawat pag-ikot ng ating buhay
May oras kailangan na maghiwalay
Puso'y lumaban man walang magagawa
Saan ka, kailan ka, muling mahahagkan
Magkulang man sa atin itong sandali
Alam ko na tayo'y magkikitang muli
Hangga't may umaga pa na haharapin
Ikaw lang ang mamahalin
Puso'y lumaban man walang magagawa

I'LL BE SEEING YOU in that small cafe...my long lost female blogger friend........


your last email was a saying-goodbye email, i really don't know, if it is a mistake on my part, what made you say goodbye, if it my mistakes i am really sorry........
I’ll be seeing you;
In all the old, familiar places;
That this heart of mine embraces;
All day through.
In that small cafe;
The park across the way;
The children’s carousel;
The chestnut tree;
The wishing well.
I’ll be seeing you;
In every lovely, summer’s day;
And everything that’s bright and gay;
I’ll always think of you that way;
I’ll find you in the morning sun;
And when the night is new;
I’ll be looking at the moon;
But I’ll be seeing you.
I'll be seeing you.mp3/rclooney  Posted by Picasa

TO SIR WITH LOVE - to my students in fiber optic training class


Those schoolgirl days
Of telling tales and biting nails are gone
But in my mind
I know they will still live on and on
But how do you thank someone
who has taken you from crayons to perfume
It isn't easy but I'll try
If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky
in letters that would soar a thousand feet high
To Sir with love.
The time has come
for closing books and long last looks must end
And as I leave
I know that I am leaving my best friend
A friend who taught me right from wrong
and weak from strong
That's a lot to learn.
What, what can I give you in return
If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start
but I would rather you let me give my heart
To Sir with love.

CALL ME IRRESPONSIBLE


Call me irresponsible - call me unreliable
Throw in undependable too
Do my foolish alibis bore you
Well I'm not too clever - I just adore you

Call me irresponsible - yes I'm unreliable
But it's undeniably true - I'm irresponsibly mad for you

Spirit move me every time I'm near you
Whirling like a cyclone in my mind
Sweet Melissa, angel of my lifetime
Answer to all answers I can find
Baby, I love you, come, come, come into my arms
Let me know the wonder of all of you
Baby, I want you now, now, now, and hold on fast
Could this be the magic at last?

High up where the stallion meets the sun

Never leave you till my life is done

Let me know the wonder of all of you
And baby, I want you now, now, oh, now, oh now and hold on fast
Could this be the magic at last?

A SONG FOR YOU


I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my love in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you
I know your image of me is what I hope to be
I've treated you unkindly but darlin' can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Darlin' can't you please see through me
Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you
You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding
I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song for you
You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding
I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song for you
We were alone and I was singing this song for you

WE'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN


We've only just begun to live,
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we're on our way.
And yes, We've just begun.
Before the rising sun we fly,
So many roads to choose
We start our walking and learn to run.
And yes, We've just begun.
Sharing horizons that are new to us,
Watching the signs along the way,
Talking it over just the two of us,
Working together day to day
Together.
And when the evening comes we smile,
So much of life ahead
We'll find a place where there's room to grow,
And yes, We've just begun.

AMAZED


Every time our eyes meet
This feeling inside me
Is almost more than I can take
Baby when you touch me
I can feel how much you love me
And it just blows me away
I've never been this close to anyone or anything
I can hear your thoughts
I can see your dreams
I don't know how you do what you do
I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I want to spend the rest of my life
With you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I'm amazed by you
The smell of your skin
The taste of your kiss
The way you whisper in the dark
Your hair all around me
Baby you surround me
You touch every place in my heart
Oh, it feels like the first time, every time
I want to spend the whole night in your eyes
Chorus
Solo
Every little thing that you do
I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I want to spend the rest of my life
With you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I'm amazed by you

Our love affair is a wondrous thing
That we’ll rejoice in remembering
Our love was born with our first embrace
And a page was torn out of time and space
Our love affair, may it always be
A flame to burn through eternity
So take my hand with a fervent prayer
That we may live and we may share
A love affair to remember
