Eventually. Maybe

Is this love? Is this true?
I am so smitten by you.
I want us to get closer
Be with you ’til forever

Is this love? This feels bizarre!
Can I just wish on a star?
For you to see the sign
So you can be mine, just mine.

Is this love? Why all the ache?
Do you know what’s at stake
When love is not returned?
Will I then get tired to yearn?

But I’ll always hope and pray
For you to find your way
To love me endlessly
Eventually. Maybe.

Immersion

Author’s Note: Just lyrics, without melody.

I see you as a figment in my dream
An apparition of what it may seem
A part of me is just imagining
A life with you could be the perfect thing

Refrain:
But I’m crippled with just a thought of you
Yet I’d do anything to be with you

Chorus:
I want to see through you
Let every inch of you be magnified
I want to get through you
Let’s be one and our souls be unified
I want to see through you
Yes, I want to be immersed with you…

Somehow my vision of you seems so clear
With you, I am abandoning my fear
This emotion, it’s new yet it’s surreal
Maybe I am now ready to be real

Repeat Refrain and Chorus

Bridge:
Why don’t we stop this pretention
Now it’s time to take some action
Let’s converge, it’s our immersion

Repeat Chorus

Yes, I want to be immersed with you
Together, we’ll forever be one…

The Only One

I see the vulnerability in your eyes
Your guard is down and you’re no longer in disguise
But he is the only one who can protect you
The only one who can wipe away your blues

I sense the love coming from your very soul
It’s penetrating my core making me whole
But he is the only one who can see through you
The only one who can compliment a love that’s true

I feel passion emanating from your being
A light of zeal and sensuality you are bringing
But he is the only one destined to touch you
The only one who can be in paradise with you

With just a kiss from him and all your fears are gone
You start to assume that he is the only one
But here I am, you know I could be the one
Let me in and I’ll prove to you that I am THE one

Could I Be The One?

Author’s Note (more like a disclaimer): So after writing this, I realized it is similar to a Jollibee (most famous fast food chain in the Philippines) commercial aired a couple of months ago but it wasn’t the inspiration to this. In the last stanza, I was thinking of the song 25 Minutes by Michael Learns To Rock (cheesy but they were a hit in the Philippines back in the day). Anyways, enough of the disclaimer…

I wish I could be the one
Who will comfort you
Who will hear your pain
And listen to your woes
Then take your hand
An tell you it’s fine

I wish I could be the one
Whom you’ll turn to
In times of joy or hurt
To be everything you need
Then show you true love
And let you know it’s real

I wish I could be the one
Who will hold you tight
Who will kiss your lips
And feel you close to me
Then be the first person you’ll see
When the morning comes

But he’s standing next to you
With a promise of forever
Sealed with a ring and a kiss
And as you both walk down the aisle
Hand in hand, overjoyed
How I wish… I could be him

Something

There is something in you that makes my heart skip a beat
Something exciting that my mind can never process
Is it passion? Is it true love? Oh! I cannot tell
All I know it’s what I’ve been looking for all these years

There is something in you that lets me see who I am
I can’t imagine I’m liking this other side of me
Is it my purpose? The definition of my life?
All I know it’s what I want and where I want to be

There is something in you that pushes me to believe
Something different yet it is the only real thing
Perhaps it’s telling me to take a leap of faith?
A chance I’m considering but not willing to take

So YOU are something that I can never comprehend
You give me wings so I could fly and reach for my dream
I wonder what potion or magic do you possess
Maybe I should stop analyzing – just let it be

Chance

Is this the last, my only chance?
Or I will go straight in a trance?
Following norm, I don’t understand
This is totally not what I planned

Refrain 1:
So this is it, a leap of faith
Hoping it will lead me to fate

Chorus 1:
An opportunity awaits
Opening doors, no time to waste
Come on! There’s no need to conform
Bend some rules, let life take its form

Is this the answer to my prayer?
Or just lies that are uncovered?
But this is not what I have asked
Yet I am embracing this task

Repeat Refrain 1 and Chorus 1

So this is where I am headed?
Or is this what I have dreaded?
But whatever, I’ll just proceed
Taking chances – this is my creed

Refrain 2:
So I’m taking a leap of faith
I know this will lead me to fate

Chorus 2:
An opportunity awaits
Embrace it, opening my gates
Let’s take this one and only chance
Let’s fall in love, let’s take a glance

Come on, baby! Let’s take a glance
Yeah, honey! I’m taking my chance
(to fade…)

Holiday Blues

It’s 4PM and it’s already dark
The wind chill is piercing and I wish –
I’m at home in front of the fireplace
Enjoying its warmth and its heat
Then watch the snowfall by the window
With you by my side, admiring its beauty
Instead, here I am outside, wandering
Going nowhere, cold, lost and searching
Looking for nothing, for love, for you
Somehow, I always end up in this park
Right on this bench where we used to hang…
—–
It’s this time of year when pain is too much
It’s reminiscent of the past, that night –
We were at this bench, giggling nonsensically
We enjoyed the cold and nothing mattered
Then you popped the question but then…
Glimpses of lies start rushing through my mind
I wish I knew what went wrong to undo it
How can I move on and see things differently
I only wish these days, the holidays, to quickly pass
So I can stop counting each snowflake
Right on this bench where we used to hang…
