Haranang Karoling

Posted: April 6, 2013 in Rhymes

First published on Thursday, 15 October 2009, but the words were written a year ago before it got published.

I was hoping someone would collaborate with me on this one. But up until now, it still remains as a rhyme. Can someone put music on these words already!? 😀

(As inspired by PNE and Kamikazee)

nilalamig at mga daliri ko ay namimitig,

disyembre na ngunit sa larawan mo pa rin nakatitig

marami nang nagkarol, sa aso ay nagpahabol

kaunti man ang aking barya, ayos lang kasi

chorus:

kahit wala nang lobo, kahit walang regalo

kapag nariyan ka’y araw araw ang pasko

kahit na wala si santa, mga ninong ko’y nagtago na

saki’y laging pasko kapag kapiling ka

kumpleto ang simbang gabi, basta’t ikaw ang katabi

aakyatin ang pinakamatayog na krismas tree

at wag lamang hihilingin na abutin pa ang bituin

kahit kay narda ay aking dadalhin sayo kasi

chorus:

kahit wala nang lobo, kahit walang regalo

kapag nariyan ka’y araw araw ang pasko

kahit na wala si santa, mga ninong ko’y nagtago na

saki’y laging pasko kapag kapiling ka

outro:

bitbit aking gitara, kasama na ang banda

pangarap ko sa paskong ito’y matugtog ang aking kanta

at sana’y marinig, ang musika’t ang tinig,

ang bawat araw ay pasko sayong pag -ibig.

end:

ngayong noche buena, sana ay kasalo ka

habang nagniningning mga parol sayong bintana

ikaw ay aayain, sa balkonahe ay dinggin

ang harana kong ito’y pang krismas karol din…Ü

The Number Three

Posted: April 6, 2013 in Rhymes

First published on on Sunday, 18 October 2009. CHEESY! But I was full of sentiments when I wrote this, three years back. LOL

 

Three blocks, that’s how far you are, but near to my heart.
We wished we’d end up forever, but did we ever make a start?
And on the Third of November I still can remember
The moment when I first held you while you wept on my shoulder.

It’s been more than three years, yet it seemed just yesterday
When you whispered those three words in the air.
I asked you to repeat them to me, but you hesitated,
Oh, that three longest weeks, the best… the sweetest.

I sought for you just three months ago.
Was just thinking of having someone to talk the tears away
Little did I know, my heart stayed with you, and alone I have gone astray.
From that moment I knew… my heart was home… my heart was home.

Can you give me my heart back if you wish not to stay?

The longest three blocks.
The sweetest three weeks.
The Third of November.

And this is my third year….of longing.. wishing.. hoping.
Will we ever make it to the third chapter of our love?

Love is sweeter the second time around, as they say.
I long not for that.. Give them all they want best.
For me, just a third time for love, and I’d want nothing else.

One Random Morning

Walking on his usual path home
With a pair if earphones embracing his ears
Listening to the loud music that only he hears
He passes by the church, his feet walk him in it.

Stepped on the marble tiles, stared on the altar from afar
“Why am I here?” he asked, as if deciding for a war
He sat on a pew, beside a random sleeping grandmother
Muted his music, bent his knees, went down on the kneeler.

He realized he has not prayed for the longest time.
He clenched his hands together, held them in front of his face,
Started to mutter a prayer, of thanks, forgiveness and grace.
His eyes closed, he felt a tear fell… and another.. and another…

It’s been two weeks after his birthday.. This man has granted his Creator’s wish. Unknowingly.

First pulished on Monday, 17 August 2009 (as inspired by one of my most favorite movies. Need I mention the title?)

*If that fallen angel were a poet..

There was never a night when she came

I always think of her awake, every day’s just the same.

Yet every day is just like a dream that’s never coming true

I never want to wake up, but I know someday I have to.

The touch of her hand;

The weight of her head on my shoulder;

The scent of her hair makes me want to kiss her.

Just for this night, I wish it’d never end.

The smile on her lips;

The look in her pretty bright eyes;

The way she talks to me makes me want to fantasize.

Just for this night, I wish it’d never end.

But if this night should end, and tomorrow she’ll be gone,

And all that happened will just remain in my memories;

If we’ll never ever meet –

“I’d rather have a a breath of her hair;

A kiss from her mouth;

A touch of her hand

Than eternity without it.”

Just one.

Napadaan

(This is officially, the first and only song I have ever made by far.)

I have some ambitious attempts of the song uploaded on Youtube and up to now, I haven’t decided yet which version is better. 🙂

I have recently recorded one on Soundcloud. 🙂

https://soundcloud.com/jericho-carrillo/napadaan-redux-original

I-

Isang gabing kasama ka

Nakatitig lang sa iyong mga mata

Bakit mo pa nagawa

Sa akin na ibigin ka kung…

Ref:

Mawawala ka lang,

Nang ganun-ganon na lang?

 

II-

Pinilit mang pigilan ang damdamin

Mahirap man pero sige, tuloy pa rin

At kahit pa anong gawin

Sinisigaw ng puso ko’y ikaw pa rin

 

Chorus:

Bakit ba di natin magawang

Turuan ang pusong huwag magwala?

Bakit ba di maaring pagbawalang

Pigilan ang pusong huwag masaktan?

 

III-

Walang ibang nais marinig

Langit sa akin ang iyong mga tinig

At ang iyong mga ngiti

Sa akin ay kumiliti ngunit…

 

Ref:

Mawawala ka lang,

Nang ganun-ganon na lang…

 

Out:

Ngayon wala na sa ‘king piling

Pag-ibig mo pa rin ang siyang hinihiling

Sa awit kong ito’y di na malilimutan

Minsan sa buhay ko ika’y napadaan…

Sutsot ng Laman

(one of the most intriguing stuff I have ever made… lol)

 

Hindi mapakali kapag hindi nadarama
Ang tamis at init tuwing kapiling ka
Nawawala sa sarili, mundo’y isinasantabi
Maangkin lamang ang susi ng langit.

Bawat hinga ay may himig, bawat bulong ay hiyaw,
Milya-milyang abot ng kamay sa paggalaw.
Mga mata’y nanlilisik, umaalab
Hanggang sa madama na ang liyab.

Subalit bakt nagtataka?
Nananabik sa iyong halik, pagkatapos ay wala na.
Nilalamon ang saril,
Sinisindihan ang damdamin, hanggang sa maglaho na.

Bumabaon sa ala-ala
Nababaliw kapag naiisip ka
Ang tikman, sa iba’y kasalanan,
Walang magagwa, di na mapipigilan pa

Lahat ay kalilimutan, konsyensya’t kaluluwa –
Ipagpapalit, makuha lamang ang ligaya.

Bottomless Pit

Posted: April 6, 2013 in Rhymes

The glass seems like a bottomless pit
Sipping the golden juice from it
Up to the last drop
Extracting, shape shifting.

It goes round, and round, and round
With its melody, a melancholic sound
Every sip kicks out the misery
Gulping to freedom, with tears at times falling down.

Is it yourself, or is it just it,
the one who makes you crave for it?
Misery and bliss, give me that bittersweet
The golden juice from the bottomless pit.
