What Can I Do..

lyric sheet No Comments »

I was chatting with my bestfriend Daisy the other day and were talking about some women stuff, and she caught me off the hook! :) Well, I guess she does know me so well. :) I was entertaining myself yesterday by singing through our midi player and I just wanted to post this song by the Corrs! :)

What Can I Do to Make you Love Me!

I haven’t slept at all in days
It’s been so long since we’ve talked
And I have been here many times
I just don’t know what I’m doing wrong

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

There’s only so much I can take
And I just got to let it go
And who knows I might feel better
If I don’t try and I don’t hope

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

No more waiting, No more aching
No more fighting, No more trying

Maybe there’s nothing more to say
And in a funny way I’m calm
Because the power is not mine
I’m just gonna let it fly

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

Love me..

Bes, I am really fighting it hard.. :(

Ciao! :)

Blessed

Dwight requested for a song entitled “I Do”, but I am not familiar with the song. I asked him to think of something quite familiar and new. :) So, he asked me to sing instead, Blessed by Christina Aguilera. Well, I am not familiar with this song either. But I know that I would be able to study it, just in time for the wedding. :) Well, I hope that I would be able to sing well. Aside from seeing my old friends and sharing their happy moments, I am quite excited about the food! Oh well, some weight loss pills would help me trim down a bit! :)

Here’s the lyric of the song Blessed by Christina Aguilera

When I think of how life used to be
Always walking in the shadows
Then I look at what you’ve given me
I feel like dancing on my tiptoes
I must say everyday I wake
And realize you’re by my side

Chorus
I know I’m truly
Blessed for everything you give me
Blessed for all he tenderness you show
I’ll do my best with every breath that’s in me
Blessed to make sure you never go

There are times that test your faith
‘Till you think you might surrender
Baby I’m, I’m not ashamed to say
That my hopes were growing slender
You walked by in the nick of time
Looking like an answered prayer

Chorus

Blessed with love and understanding
Blessed when I hear you call my name
I’ll do my best with faith that’s never ending
Blessed to make sure you feel the same

Deep inside of me You fill me with your gentle touch

Ciao! :)

Handog ng Pilipino sa Mundo

lyric sheet 1 Comment »

‘Di na ‘ko papayag mawala ka muli.
‘Di na ‘ko papayag na muli mabawi,
Ating kalayaan kay tagal natin mithi.
‘Di na papayagang mabawi muli.

Magkakapit-bisig libo-libong tao.
Kay sarap palang maging Pilipino.
Sama-sama iisa ang adhikain.
Kelan man ‘di na paalipin.

Ref:
Handog ng Pilipino sa mundo,
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta’t magkaisa tayong lahat.

Masdan ang nagaganap sa aming bayan.
Nagkasama ng mahirap at mayaman.
Kapit-bisig madre, pari, at sundalo.
Naging Langit itong bahagi ng mundo.

Huwag muling payagang umiral ang dilim.
Tinig ng bawat tao’y bigyan ng pansin.
Magkakapatid lahat sa Panginoon.
Ito’y lagi nating tatandaan.
(repeat refrain two times)

Coda:
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan.
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta’t magkaisa tayong lahat!

Journey to the Past

lyric sheet No Comments »

Heart, don’t fail me now!
Courage, don’t desert me!
Don’t turnback
Now that we’re here
People always say
Life is full of choices
No one ever mentions fear!
Or how a road can seem so long
How the world can seem so vast
Courage see me through
Heart I’m trusting you
On this journey…to the past

Somewhere down this road
I know someone’s waitingg
Years of dreams
Just can’t be wrong
Arms will open wide
I’ll be safe and wanted
Fin’lly home where I belong
Well, starting here, my life begins
Starting now, I’m learning fast
Courage see me through
Heart I’m trusting you
On this journey…to the past

Heart don’t fail me now!
Courage don’t desert me!

Home, Love, Family
There was once a time
I must have had them too
Home, Love, Family
I will never be complete
Until I find you…

One step at a time
One hope, then another
Who knows where
This road may go-
Back to who i was
On to find my future
Things my heartstill
Needs to know
Yes, let this be a sign!
Let, this road be mine!
Let it lead me to my past
Courage see me through
Heart I’m trusting you
To bring me home…
At last!
At Last!

At the Beginning

Cartoons, History, lyric sheet 1 Comment »

Another song that Dwight wanted me to sing for them is At The Beginning.  This one, is the theme song of the movie Anastasia. I believe it was not produced by Disney. The story is about a Russian princess. It was based on a true story but there are scenes that are made out of fiction. The princess name is Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia. She was the daughter of Russia’s last czar, Nicholas II.

Anastasia

Anastasia

In 1918, her whole family with some faithful servants were murdered. But there are rumors that Anastasia survived that night. And that she was taken cared off by one of the Bolshevik police. Several woman have falsely acclaimed that they are the Grand Duchess Anastasia. The most popular of them all was Anna Anderson. I have read a lot of articles about Anna Anderson and her claims being Anastasia. There are some incidents that you would really believe her. But DNA results said that Anna Anderson has no relation at all to the royal family. That the remains of the four daughters of the Nicholas II, including his wife and only son, Alexi have been recovered and now been accounted for. That no one escaped that dreadful night.

I always get goosebumps every time I talk about them. Well, I know that a lot of you are familiar with this song. I like this song from the cartoon movie Anastasia. But, I like Journey to the Past more. :)

At the Beginning

We were strangers starting out on our journey
Never dreaming what we’d have to go through
Now here we are and I’m suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected what you did to my heart
When I lost hope you were there to remind me
This is the start

(chorus)
And Life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I want to keep flowing
Life is a road now and forever
A Wonderful journey

I’ll be there when the world stops turning
I’ll be there whenthe storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

(chorus)

I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
I know that my dream will live on
I’ve been waiting so long
Nothing’s gonna tear us apart

(chorus)

In the end I wanna be standing at the beginning with you

Anastasia the Movie

Ciao! :)

If I Never Knew You

Cartoons, lyric sheet 1 Comment »

My dear friend Dwight (who is now in Australia) is getting married in December this year. It’s been 6 years since we last see each other, but he never forgets me. :) Well, he said that he’s been looking around in for me in Friendster and finally last year he found me. Last January (if I am not mistaken), he said that he will be getting married and he wanted me to sing in his wedding.  Last week, he sent me a message through Friendster and told me the songs he wanted me to sing. He requested 3 songs. I forgot the title of the other song but one of the songs he requested for me to sing is  If I Never Knew You (by Jon Secada and Shanice). It was actually the theme song of Disney Movie “Pocahontas.”

I listened to the song last night as I clean my daughter’s mini-aquarium. It is a very sweet song, and Shanice hits the high tones very good! :) I still have couple of months to study the song and hopefully I’ll be able to sing it well. :)

If I Never Knew You

-Smith-
If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be

And if I never held you
I would never have a clue
How at last I’d find in you
The missing part of me

In this world so full of fear
Full of rage and lies
I can see the truth so clear
In your eyes
So dry your eyes

And I’m so grateful to you
I’d have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

-Pocahontas-
I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we made the whole world bright

I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong
All they’d leave us where these whispers in the night
But still my heart is singing
We were right

-Pocahontas- (Smith)
If I never knew you (There’s no moment I regret)
If I never knew this love (Since the moment that we met)
I would have no inkling of (If our time has gone too fast)
How precious life can be (I’ve lived at last…)

-Smith-
And I’m so grateful to you
I’d have lived my whole life through
Empty as the sky

-Pocahontas-
Never knowing why

-Both-
Lost forever
If I never knew you

Ciao! :)

Crazy about Barbie: The Island Princess

Little Antoinette, lyric sheet, movies No Comments »

My daughter has a new favorite movie. She watches Barbie, The Island Princess devotedly everyday! Sometimes, even twice a day! :) She loves the animals in the film. She adores the baby elephant named Tika. She also likes Azul, the peacock, the Sagi, a red panda and the dolphins.  She also enjoys singing the songs in it! Sometimes, I hear my self singing the songs also! :)

Barbie in The Island Princess

Nonet’s favorite songs from the movie are Right Here In My Arms,  I Need to Know and  Always More. So, I may be able to sing the whole songs with here, I did some lyric search and luckily, I found them! :)

Right Here in My Arms is something like a lullabye that Ro (Barbie) and her mother, used to sing to each other.  Ro was raised by island animals, Tika, Sagi and Azul. She was shipwrecked when she was about 8 years old. In the island, she learned how to speak with animals but she hardly remembers anything from her past. That song is the only she remembered which brought her back into her mother’s arms in the end of the movie. :)

Right Here In My Arms

Sun goes down and we are here together
Fireflies glow like a thousand charms
Stay with me and you can dream forever
Right here in my arms

Sun goes down and we are here together
fireflies glow like a tgousands charms
stay with me and you can dream forever
right here in my arms

its magic, the more you give it away
close your eyes and let me hold you tight
everything,that i could ever need is
right here in my arms tonight
lalala(2x)
star begin to climb
lalala(2x)
lalalalala(2x)

It’s magic, when you are here beside me
Close your eyes and let me hold you tight
Everything, that I could ever need is
Right here in my arms tonight

Rho:

Summer day fade away
Stars begin to climb

Mother Queen:

Melodies fill the breeze
Sweeter all the time…

Nonet also love singing I Need to Know. This was the song that Ro sang when he joined Prince Antonio to sail away from the island in search for her lost family.

I Need To Know

Ro: Where is the land I come from?
Who lives where I was born?
Why do my memories start with a storm?
What if I have a family
Somewhere beyond the sea?
Could there be someone there missing me?

Tell me why I’m not sleeping
and my heart is leaping inside me
Could this be one of those times
when your feelings decide?

Why does he look through circles?
Why does he hide his feet?
Why do I feel so shy when we meet?
Is this the tree he sleeps in?
What can he see from there?
Could there be new horizons to share?

All these questions keep turning
and churning and burning inside me
What are these feelings I feel
when he’s here by my side?

I need to know these answers
I need to find my way
Seize my tomorrow
Learn my yesterday
I need to take these chances
Let all my feelings show
Can’t tell what’s waiting
Still I need to go
I need to know

Prince: Isn’t she just amazing?
Daring and bold and sure
Different from girls that I’ve met before
Do you think she might like me?
How do I look tonight?
I just want everything to be right

All these questions keep turning
and churning and burning inside me
What are these feelings I feel
when she’s here by my side?

Both: I need to know these answers
I need to find my way
Seize my tomorrow
Learn my yesterday
I need to take these chances
Let all my feelings show
Can’t tell what’s waiting
Still I need to go
I need to know …

And ofcourse, her most favorite is the song Always More. This was the song that Ro sang to Tika when her troop was sent back to the southern island. They had been accused of spreading illness to the animals in the kingdom.

Always More

Everybody is born to care
It’s something we were meant to share
Not to keep to ourselves all alone

If we make room for someone new
Doesn’t mean that there’s less for you
Only means that our circle has grown

Love knows, love grows
Bigger than before
In your heart there’s always more

It’s magic the more you give it away
The more love comes back to you everyday
You are my Tika and I am your Ro
Always forever wherever we go

So Love knows, love grows
Bigger than before
In your heart there’s always more
Always more
Always more

Actually, there are other beautiful songs in the movie. It is a feel good movie that the young and the young at hearts will be able to enjoy! :)

Ciao! :)

First Love

It's my Life, lyric sheet 3 Comments »

I woke late during my rest days. But last Friday it was different. I was awaken by a very familiar song which I have not heard for many years. That song reminds me much of my highschool days. It was one of the songs that I usually sing then. It was also the favorite song of my favorite teacher, Ms. Lorna Cruz. :) The song really touched my heart.

This song may be familiar to you. I will try to look for an mp3 which I can attach to this post! :)

FIRST LOVE
(KRISTY McNICHOL and CHRISTOPHER ATKINS)

When will I find love?
Where will it be?
And if she’s out there will she wait for me?

How will he know me?
Will I know him?
Is there no end to all my questioning?

Can I believe what I am seeing, what I am feeling?
Something so real, watching her there
She makes my heart stop.

Can I believe what I am feeling?
My head is reeling
He just took my mind, from the start I can say
I will give him everything.

Refrain:
Strange emotions wash over me
Like the motion of the deepest sea.

Chorus:
And I feel first love
(I never thought it would be)
You’re all I dreamed of
(I will be constantly true)
Love moves me inside
Like the moon moves the tide
My first love.

Can it be true?
Can this be real love?
Am I worthy of a vision so pure?
Oh, lovely one, she’s what I’ve waited for.

Can it be true or am I dreaming?
He makes my heart sing
Watching his eyes
Oh, looks that’s warm me like the sunrise.

Refrain:
Strange emotions are calling me
I am falling, falling helplessly in…
(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
Some kind of miracle brought you here
Just when I’ve given up hoping
From the moment when you first appeared
I could feel my whole life opening.
(Repeat Chorus)

(I never thought it would be)
My first love
(I will be constantly true)
My first love
(Ooh, they say that it’s true)
My first love…

Coda:
And I promise to be true to you
My first love.

This song happened to be my song for honey.. :) It is really special to me.

Lucky

lyric sheet, songs of my life No Comments »

Though this song may have been playing since the first quarter of 2008, I am still enjoying this song lately.. :)

Do you hear me,
I’m talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky oh my, baby I’m trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Oooohhhhoohhhhohhooohhooohhooohoooh

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you I promise you, I will

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music, feel the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

The Way I Am

lyric sheet, songs of my life No Comments »

By: Ingrid Michaelson

If you were falling
Then I would catch you

You need a light
I’d find a match

Cause I love the way you say good morning
And you take me the way I am

If you are chilly
Here take my sweater

Your head is aching
I’ll make it better

Cause I love the way you call me baby
And you take me the way I am

I’d buy you Rogaine
When you start losing all your hair

Sew on patches
To all you tear

Cause I love you more than I could ever promise
And you take me the way I am mmm

You take me the way I am
You take me the way I am

Breakaway

lyric sheet No Comments »

Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray (I would pray)

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed I could break away

[Chorus:]
I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes til’ I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away (I will)
And breakaway

[Chorus]

Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging around revolving doors
Maybe I don’t know where they’ll take me but
Gotta keep moving on, moving on
Fly away, breakaway

I’ll spread my wings
And I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway, breakaway, breakaway

Bleeding Love

lyric sheet, songs of my life No Comments »

Closed off from love
I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you’re frozen

Ooooh…

But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melted into the ground
Found something true
And everyone’s looking ’round
Thinking I’m going crazy

Chorus:
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Oooh, oooh…

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that their goal
Is to keep me from falling

Hey, yeah!

But nothing’s greater
Than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I’m going crazy
Maybe, maybe

Chorus:
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
