Hold me close until the morning glows
Of truths that are yet to unfold.
Our days are young and so are you,
Yet all I can say is I love you.
Habang umiinog ang daigdig,
Sa isang nakaw na sandali
Humawak ka sa aking mga kamay
At tayo'y sumayaw sa saliw ng gabi.
Lulan ng mga tala,
ating pagnilayan ang nakaraan,
tanawin ang kinabukasan
at buhayin ang naglalagablab
Isang tulang alay ko sa buwan ng wika.
I look out my windowpane
Surprised, I can still remember the rain
And how we laughed and hugged
That one September night
Promised each other
My love, there will always be
You and I
What happened to us my northern star?
The life I wanted, now seemed so far.
I thought you asked me not to let you go,
But the memories became mist
How am I supposed to know?
You held me in those eyes
Leaving me confused.
Do I move on or stay here waiting for you?
You were a dream
And everything was bliss.
The distance grew larger,
How can anyone miss?
So tell me, should I leave you now
Or take chances without knowing how?
Pity, you're so utterly consumed
By the shadows you have created.
I pray you wipe the windows
You forcibly painted,
Be able to see the truth
Than forever be blinded.
The sun in daytime finally appreciated
Than a mere glimpse in the nighttime,
You are lost and misguided.
Today, before another day begins,
I've decided to learn how to let you go.
With this, I also set myself free,
Free to love and be loved.
Like the setting sun that touches the sea,
A complete complimentary.
No more mysteries.
For we both deserve a better chance
To be who we are and who we want to be
Not for anyone else but for ourselves.
You will always be a beautiful memory,
But it's time to move on from history.
