Oh, my love, my darling,
I’ve hungered for your touch a long, lonely time,
Time goes by so slowly and time can do so much.
Are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love, God speed your love to me.

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, ‘Wait for me, wait for me’
‘I’ll be coming home, wait for me!’

Are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love, God speed your love to me

This was sung by the Righteous Brothers. I think I was 5 or 6 years old when I told my parents this is my favorite song. I could understand a little English then and all I remember was that the singer was missing his loved one.

I just finished cleaning the last parts of our apartment (bathroom, fridge, oven, stove, floor, carpet, kitchen sink) half an hour ago (1:30pm) for our “white glove” today. I have been cleaning our apartment little by little since last Saturday (except Sunday). I am sooo tired, so I just continued listening to my “wedding” playlist on my imeem account (which I have been playing since I started cleaning our apartment at 10am today). This playlist includes all the songs I chose for our wedding reception, even though our dj didn’t play all of them. 

My last Sunday.. 2 days before leaving Philippines

My last Sunday.. 2 days before leaving Philippines

I was reading my mom’s email to me about how to clean a tilapia (good thing I did it right) while our songs were playing.  While reading her email, this song played & it just felt like it’s digging my heart for what I really feel once in a while whenever I remember I haven’t been home for a long time now.

 

I really really really do miss home so much. Having been away for over 4 years now, I think I’ve been a pro in dealing with feeling homesick. But who knows how long I can be good at it. Maybe someday I’ll just break down and cry like a baby… but for now, I’ll do my best to be strong while waiting for that day that I can be with my parents and siblings again.

(by: Gary Valenciano)

I remember so well
The day that you came into my life,
You asked for my name,
You had the most beautiful smile.

My life started to change,
I’d wake up each day feeling alright.
With you right by my side
Makes me feel things will work out just fine.

How did you know
I needed someone like you in my life?
That there’s an empty space in my heart?
You came at the right time in my life!

I’ll never forget
How you brought the sun to shine in my life,
And took all the worries and fears that I had!
I guess what I’m really trying to say,
It’s not everyday that someone like you comes my way.
No words can express how much I love you!

(image by octavesolutions.co.uk) The sweet melody of this music brings back memories to me. This music was playing as I laid still in my bed, so still as if I was dead. I closed my eyes and I saw everything clearly… and even felt how I felt back then. The music serenaded my soul to the deepest emotion it can ever make. Tears run down my cheeks for a moment as I saw everything passed before my eyes and my mind… the fun times, silly times, sweet times… memories that should be kept forever. This music sang those memories to me and dug my heart to its very core. Its sweet melodies gave me an emotion so undescribable it could only make me cry….

Spend all your time waitin’ for that second chance,
For the break that would make it okay.
There’s always some reason to feel not good enough,
And it’s hard at the end of the day.
I need some distraction, oh beautiful release!
Memory slips from my veins.
Lemme be empty,
Oh, and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel,
Fly away from here,
From this dark, cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear.
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie.
You’re in the arms of your angel,
May you find some comfort here.

So tired of the straight line and everywhere you turn,
There’s vultures and thieves at your back,
The storm keeps on twisting,
You keep on building the lies
Thought you’d make up for all that you lack,
It don’t make no difference,
Escapin’ one last time,
It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness,
Oh this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees.

In the arms of the angel,
Fly away from here,
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of your angel,
May you find some comfort here.

As a young child, I learned to be honest and true
To the things I believe in my heart
Even when this whole world is cruel.
Yes I learned to be brave, and I learned to defend
The precious things of the Savior and endure to the end…

As I strive to hold on to the things that I know are true,
Temptations, they back into me and try to subdue.
It takes courage to win and nothing to lose,
And now I plead for His mercy as I struggle to choose.

Courage is doing what’s right in the presence of fear,
It takes courage to do what I should when no one is near.
Courage is my way of saying, “I will follow Thee
When the world walks out on me”

Courage is my way of saying, “I will follow Thee
When the world walks out on me…”

(by Lighthouse Family)

I wish I knew how it would feel to be free,

I wish I could break all the chains holding me,

I wish I could say all the things that I should say,

Say ’em loud, say ’em clear

For the whole wide world to hear.

I wish I could share all the love that’s in my heart,

Remove all the bars that keep us apart.

And I wish you could know how it feels to be me,

Then you’d see and agree

That every man should be free.

I wish I could be like a bird in the sky.

How sweet it would be if I found I could fly.

Well I’d soar to the sun and look down at the sea,

And I’d sing coz I know how it feels to be free….
