Let's wait a while...

And so the music trip continues...

Another 90's hit that I used to listen to when I was still a law school student.

May be fun to play this song with Sofie or Al though...



Let's Wait a While
by Janet Jackson


There's something I want to tell you
There's something I think that you should know
It's not that I shouldn't really love you
Let's take it slow
When we get to know each other
And we're both feeling much stronger
Then let's try to talk it over
Let's wait awhile longer

Let's wait awhile
Before it's too late
Let's wait awhile
Before we go too far

Remember that special night
When all of the stars were shining bright
We made our first endeavor to stay together
We made our very first promise
To love, to share, and be real honest
But on that very first night
It wasn't quite right

Let's wait awhile
Before it's too late
Let's wait awhile
Our love will be great
Let's wait awhile
Before we go too far

I didn't really know not to let all my feelings show
To save some for later so our love can be greater
You said you would always love me
Remember I said the same thing to you
You don't have to be frightened with my love
Because, I'll never give up on you
Let's wait awhile
Ah well before it's too late
You know you can't rush love, love

Let's wait awhile
(Ooh hoo hoo)
Before it's too late
(Let's wait awhile)
Wait awhile
(Our love will be great)
Let's wait awhile
(Wait awhile, ooh)
Before we go too far, oh, oh, ooh

Let's wait awhile
(Let's just take our time)
Before it's too late
(Let's wait awhile)
Your love's so good
(Our love will be great)
We shouldn't rush in
(Let's wait awhile)
Slow it down
(Before we go too far)
Ooh

La da lee de da da de de de, da da da da la da
La da lee de da da de de de, da da da da la da da
La da lee de da da de de de

I promise, I'll be worth the wait

Impossible Dream

Bear with me guys. Much as I like to be as transparent as I can be like before, I can only express myself these days through song selections.

So once I get my tact and courage back, I will go back to prose.

So here goes... one of may favorite versions from one of my favorite singers. Too bad he already passed on.


Impossible Dream
(as interpreted by Luther Vandross)

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
And 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,
march into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know
If I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie 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,
the unreachable,
The unreachable star
And I'll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I'll reach
The unreachable star

All out...

Happy long weekend everyone!



All Out of Love
by Air Supply

I'm lying alone with my head on the phone
Thinking of you till it hurts
I know you hurt too but what else can we do
Tormented and torn apart
I wish I could carry your smile and my heart
For times when my life feels so low
It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring
When today doesn't really know, doesn't really know


Chorus:
I 'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you
I know you were right believing for so long
I 'm all out of love, what am I without you
I can't be too late to say that I was so wrong


I want you to come back and carry me home
Away from this long lonely nights
I'm reaching for you, are you feeling it too
Does the feeling seem oh so right
And what would you say if I called on you now
And said that I can't hold on
There's no easy way, it gets harder each day
Please love me or I'll be gone, I'll be gone


Chorus


Oh, what are you thinking of?
What are you thinking of?
Oh, what are you thinking of?
What are you thinking of?


(Thanks to Gabe Mercado for putting Air Supply songs in my head!)

Relevance

And so the music streak goes on...


This song found relevance some twenty odd years ago. You tell me if it has relevance now...







How Am I Supposed to Live Without You
By Michael Bolton


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

Only Happy When it Rains

Sorry guys, just feeling the blues... Like anything, this too shall pass.











Only Happy When it Rains
by Garbage




I'm only happy when it rains
I'm only happy when it's complicated
And though I know you can't appreciate it
I'm only happy when it rains


You know I love it when the news is bad
And why it feels so good to feel so sad
I'm only happy when it rains


Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me


I'm only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I'm only happy when it rains


I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn't accidentally tell you that
I'm only happy when it rains


You'll get the message by the time I'm through
When I complain about me and you
I'm only happy when it rains


Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down


You can keep me company
As long as you don't care


I'm only happy when it rains
You wanna hear about my new obsession?
I'm riding high upon a deep depression
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)


I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me).

Broken Vow

Recent developments in life have caused this song to be relevant once again.


This song is invoked in relation to this post made almost five years ago.


Anyway, enjoy, for what it's worth. It's a very good song.







Broken Vow
by David Foster
(as interpreted by Josh Groban)


Tell me his name
I want to know
The way he looks
And where you go
I need to see his face
I need to understand
Why you and I came to an end


Tell me again
I want to hear
Who broke my faith in all these years
Who lays with you at night
When I'm here all alone
Remembering when I was your own


[Chorus:]
I let you go
I let you fly
Why do I keep on asking why
I let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow


Tell me the words I never said
Show me the tears you never shed
Give me the touch
That one you promised to be mine
Or has it vanished for all time


[Chorus]


I close my eyes
And dream of you and I
And then I realize
There's more to love than only bitterness and lies
I close my eyes


I'd give away my soul
To hold you once again
And never let this promise end


[Modified Chorus:]
I let you go
I let you fly
Now that I know I’m asking why
I let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow

Stupid Girl

We you know what they say: Whatever you say comes right back at you...





Stupid Girl
by Garbage


You pretend you're high
Pretend you're bored
Pretend you're anything
Just to be adored
And what you need
Is what you get


Don't believe in fear
Don't believe in faith
Don't believe in anything
That you can't break


You stupid girl
You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted


What drives you on
Can drive you mad
A million lies to sell yourself
Is all you ever had


Don't believe in love
Don't believe in hate
Don't belive in anything
That you can't waste


You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can't believe you fake it
Can't believe you fake it


Don't believe in fear
Don't believe in pain
Don't believe in anyone
That you can't tame


You stupid girl
You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted
You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can't believe you fake it
Can't believe you fake it


You stupid girl

Laying Off the Sauce

I have seen it coming. And the day has finally arrived.

I have decided to lay off the Facebook sauce, if only for a while.

Don't get me wrong. I may be transparent and you may detect a pending personal problem but I assure you everything is alright.

I was just spending too much time on it anyway. I was satisfied with what a friend terms as "thinking bite size pieces."

We have gotten used to this, claiming we have no more time. Getting our news and other information in 140 characters or less.

We have lost our will to read entire news or information articles. We have even lost our will to write a complete blog entry. We are satisfied just to tweet or post a few sentences on our Facebook wall.

And I have found Facebook too interactive for my growing taste. And because of that, I have discovered I have been spending too much time in it. Time that I could be spending for more productive pursuits.

And then there's TMI. Too much information. Being in small bites, I have been giving out and receiving too much information.

So for me, I have resolved to lay off the Facebook sauce, if only for a while. Starting today, I will be less interactive. And I will resolve to deliver my thoughts in larger doses. Except for tweets, which while still in bite size pieces, is less interactive than Facebook.

So hopefully, you'll see more posts here and my professional blog

I used to blog everyday. Hopefully, I can get back to that same groove.

Wish me luck.

Habang Atin ang Gabi (While the Night is Ours)

A good friend implanted this song in my head. Now I can't seem to take it out.


Hence, this song is dedicated to her.


I particularly adore this bare acoustic version.


Happy weekend, everyone!





Habang Atin ang Gabi
Lyricist: Armando Lao
Composer: Jay Durias




Sumapit man ang dilim
Hindi mangangamba
Magkakanlong sa dilim
Hindi nag-iisa
Dahil kapiling ka ooh


Lumalim man ang gabi
Hindi mahihimbing
Aabangan ang buwan
Habang binibilang ang mga bituin


REFRAIN:
May luha at dahas
Ng nagdaang umaga
Sa lambong ng gabi
Tila naglaho na
May luha at dahas
Sa darating na bukas
Ngunit habang gabi
Walang mababakas ooh


CHORUS:
Yakapin mo ako
Habang ating ang gabi/mundo
(Habang atin ang...ooh...)


Paglipas ng magdamag
Hindi malulumbay
Dahil buong magdamag
Tayong dal'wa sinta
Nangarap ng sabay


(Repeat REFRAIN)
(Repeat CHORUS 2 times)


CODA:
Yakapin mo ako
Habang atin ang gabi

This day in history from:

Justice Ma. Lourdes Punzalan Aranal-Sereno

Our clan is brimming with gratitude and pride with the appointment of Justice Sereno as PNoy's first appointment into the highest court of the land.

Her credentials and abilities may be matched but her integrity cannot. I can personally vouch for that. Her appointment IS the correct and bold statement of PNoy that he is serious about judicial reform.

But Solita Monsod has put her qualifications succinctly in this article written when the short list came out:

http://www.bworldonline.com/main/content.php?id=15307

Manolo Quezon has remarked, due to her current age, she may be Chief Justice one day.

We pray that she makes a great contribution to the Philippine Legal System.

God bless the Philippines! God bless us all!

THE LAWYER'S PRAYER
May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

THE JABEZ PRAYER
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
