How Am I Supposed To Live Without You

somebody in my old past streak into my brain this beautiful spring afternoon, i remember
her, I was driving from London ontario, back to Toronto, when the DJ played
this song on my fave radio station...I remember this song, this song was
usually sung by my female college friend in our karaoke gigs every Friday
night during the late 80’s, kaboses niya michael Bolton malake na magaralgal, hindi
siya tibo, babaeng-babae siya in and out, pero talagang boses lalake siya,
tawagin na lamang nating siyang KIM, short for Kimberly, actually we met in a
advanced calculus class, late lagi siyang dumadating, pareho kaming working
student then, sa TELEFUNKEN siya noon, sa FTI, ako naman sa PLDT, simple
hi...Was the spark plug,...Sabi ko...late ka na naman, sabi niya pakopya, sabi ko
alin ng mukha ko, (ngumiti siya) yong mukha ko, negro ako, sabi niya oo nga
e...pero sa mata ka bumawe dahil sobrang ganda ng mata sobrang pungay, para
laging iiyak at malamlam, bagay me lahi kasi kaming bumbay pero mukhang bola
yan…mangungutang ka ba? Matagal pa ang suweldo ko..a ocho palang ngayon..sabi
ko… yan na nga kopyahin mo na yong test paper ko...doon nagsimula
yong pagiging magbarkada namin...eto nga yong banner song niya sa karaoke
gigs naming noong late 80’s How Am I Supposed To Live Without You
I could hardly believe it
When I heard the news today
I had to come and get it straight from you
They said you were leavin'
Someone swept you heart away
From the look upon your face I see it's true
So tell me all about it, tell me 'bout the plans you're makin'
Then tell me one thing more before I go
Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been lovin' you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
How am I supposed to carry on
When all that I've been livin' for is gone
I didn't come here for cryin'
Didn't come here to breakdown
It's just a dream of mine is coming to an end
An how can I blame you
When I built my world around
The hope that someday we'd be so much more than friends
And I don't wanna know the price I'm gonna pay for dreaming
When even now it's more than I can take
And I don't wanna face the price I'm gonna pay for dreaming
Now that your dream has come true

As Sure As I'm Standing Here

For unknown reasons, somebody is telling that you are different, that you gonna be
the mother of my kids, dahil siguro maasikaso ka, hindi ka Tupperware, hindi mo
pababayaan ang magigiging anak mo, at dahi tutoong tao ka. Siguro ito na marahil ang
mga katangian iba ka, iba ka….sa mga babaeng nakilala ko, well, siguro talagang
ganoon lang ako, masyado akong attached sa mga mahal ko sa buhay, I wanna be in a
comfort distance to the people I treasured most, which to me monetary issues comes
only a distant second vis-à-vis to the people I loved most, just recently I was
offered I job in New York Telecom Firm, which salary and perks was beyond my wildest
dream, but I said…NO THANK YOU….because I would be away from people I cherished
more, when I was still in PLDT for provincial assignment, coming from the airport is
always like coming home where you mostly missed, a home where you heart is…like
missing these little things…and when you added them up, your warm embrace will not be sufficient enough…
As Sure As I'm Standing Here
Sometimes I look at you
Sad and so beautiful
Young and alone
And so far from home
Much too much for you
Much too soon
Empty eyes gazin' at the moon
As sure as I'm standing here
You'll never have to be afraid
As sure as I'm standing here
I'll try and help you find your way
Oh I swear, as sure as I'm standing here
You'll never need to be alone
You've got my word
As sure as I'm standing here
Sometimes I look at you
Sleepin' like a baby
Your hair combed with sunlight
Full of sweet days
You say nothin' matters
Say you know how it is
Did you think it would be like this?
But sure as standing here
You'll never have to be afraid
As sure as I'm standing here
I'll try and help you find your way
Oh I swear, as sure as I'm standing here
You'll never need to be alone
You've got my word
As sure as I'm standing here
Oh I swear as sure as I'm standing here

Feeling Senti....

just feeling sentimental...
Hanggang Sa Dulo ng Walang Hanggan
Saan Ka Man Naroroon
Someone That I Used To Love
Kahit Na Magtiis
Pagputi ng Uwak,Pag-itim ng Tagak
Ikaw lang ang mamahalin
May oras na tayo'y kailangang maghiwalay
Puso'y lumaban man, walang magagawa
Saan pa, kailan ka muling mahahagkan
Kulang man sa 'tin itong sandali
Alam ko na tayo'y magkikitang muli
Hangga't may pag-asa pa na haharapin
Ikaw lang ang mamahalin
(Instrumental)
Puso'y lumaban man walang magagawa
Saan pa, kailan ka muling mahahagkan
Kulang man sa 'tin itong sandali
Alam ko na tayo'y magkikitang muli
Hangga't may umaga pa na haharapin
Ikaw lang ang mamahalin
Ikaw lang ang mamahalin

Paano Kung Wala ka na
Paano kung wala ka na
Paano ba ang mag-isa
Mula ng makasama ka Kung paano'y limot ko na
Paano ang pag-ibig ko
Kung di rin lang laan sa'yo
Ang buhay ng ating mundo
Di ko alam kung paano
CHORUS
Bago ka lumisan sana'y maturuan mo
Na iwasan ang bawat nakasanayan ko
At limutin na ang maghintay lagi sa iyo
Paano ba ito O kay daming bagay na hindi ko na alam
Tulad nang lumuha at sa iyo ay magdamdam
Dahil naniwalang labis mo akong mahal
Laman ng bawat mong dasal
Paanong aking gagawin
Kung di mo na ako pansin
Kung ito'y panaginip din
Paano ba ang magising
REPEAT CHORUS
O kay daming bagay na hindi ko na alam
Tulad ng lumuha at sa iyo ay magdamdam
Dahil naniwalang labis mo akong mahal
Laman ng bawat mong dasal
Paano ba aking mahal
Paano ba mahal

STILL...

It’s so funny when my ex-gf (now my wife) gave her sweetest “oo” or the word when
sinagot nya ako, yes, sinagot nya ako ng pabalang….not really “oo” but the
word….”kailangan kita”…she was nursing from a broken heart since her childhood
sweetheart left her for the promise of a good life in USA…she was really my first gf
since my high school sweetie dumped me also for a study in USA by the advice of her
matapobreng magulang...taga squatter lang kasi si kuya joey noon... kaya he was not a
priority during those days...but that was a different story...let me get back to my
misis...when i met her, actually we started as friends, when i laid my eyes on her,
not for the fact she passed my descriminating taste for beauty and character,
but my gut feeling that this girl would be the the mother of my future
kids...matagal-tagal ko rin siyang niligawan bago ko siya napasagot...ng pabalang ...five years din kaming naging
mag-steady...siguro lumambot na rin ang bakal(steel) na puso ng aking misis
during those
day dahil sa harana kong lovesong noon ng Commodores (Lionel Richie - lead vocals)
na STILL....Somehow I know deep in my heart You needed me
and the song by Kenny Rogers...She Believed in Me... STILL
The Commodores
(Lionel Richie)

Lady, Morning's just a moment away
And I'm without you once again
You laughed at me
You said you didn't needed me
I wonder if you need me now
(chorus:)
So many dreams that flew away
So many words we didn't say
Two people lost in a storm
Where did we go?
Where'd we go?
We lost what we both had found
You know we let each other down
But then most of all
I Do Love You
Still!
(Same as chorus)
We played the games that people play
We made our mistakes along the way
Somehow I know deep in my heart
You needed me
'Cause I needed you so desperately!
We were too blind to see
But then most of all
I Do Love You
Still!
She believes in me
(steve gibb)
While she lays sleeping, I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
And it’s good when I finally make it home, all alone
While she lays dreaming, I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly she says how was your night?
And I come to her and say, it was all right, and I hold her tight
And she believes in me, I’ll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
I will find a way, find a way...
While she lays waiting, I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
Then I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend, and there’s no end
While she lays crying, I fumble with a melody or two
And I’m torn between the things that I should do
And she says to wake her up when I am through,
God her love is true...
And she believes in me, I’ll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
I will find a way, while she waits... while she waits for me!
