Here I am waiting, I’ll have to leave soon, why am I holdin’ on
We knew this day would come, we knew it all along
How did it come so fast
This is our last night, but it’s late and I’m tryin’ not to sleep
‘Cuz I know, when I wake I will have to slip away

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa

Here I am starring, at your perfection in my arms; so beautiful.
The sky is getting bright, the stars are burnin’ out.
Somebody slow it down.
This is way too hard, ‘cuz I know when the sun comes up I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memories

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa

I never wanted to stop, because I don’t want to start all over, start all over
I was afraid of the dark, but now it’s all that I want, all that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, (yeah) oh whoa, (yeah) oh whoa (yeah) (yeah)
Oh whoa, (yeah hey) oh whoa, (yeah hey) oh whoa

One, two, one, two, three

Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh!
Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh!

Never had much faith in love or miracles
Never wanna put my heart on the line.
But swimming in your world is something spiritual
I’m born again every time you spend the night

Cause your sex takes me to paradise
Yeah your sex takes me to paradise
And it shows, yeah, yeah, yeah
Cause you make feel like, I’ve been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Yeah you make feel like, I’ve been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long

Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh!
Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh!

You bring me to my knees
You make me testify
You can make a sinner change his ways
Open up your gates cause I can’t wait to see the light
And right there is where I wanna stay

Cause your sex takes me to paradise
Yeah your sex takes me to paradise
And it shows, yeah, yeah, yeah
Cause you make feel like, I’ve been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Yeah you make feel like, I’ve been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long

Oh oh oh oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can I just stay here
Spend the rest of my days here
Oh oh oh oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can’t I just stay here
Spend the rest of my days here

Cause you make feel like, I’ve been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Yeah you make feel like, I’ve been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long

Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh!
Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh!

I’d like to thank my boss for introducing me to the crazy crazy world of Between Two Ferns.  Funny as hell. But come to think of it, is hell really funny? Alright. Whatever.

Funniest of them all for me so far is the one with Charlize Theron. But before I continue, I’d like to say that woman is gorgeous. I have become officially a fan of hers after watching this clip. Gorgeous. Another testament to the saying life is unfair. Rrrrrr…

Going back to the show, it never fails. It still makes me laugh every single time. You know, I already know it’s scripted (somehow) and that they’re faking it (getting angry, getting serious, and such)  but it still makes me laugh. Oh Lord. I think I have gone crazy.

Anyway, aside from the Charlize Theron episode I also like the one with Will Ferrell of course, Natalie Portman, Tila Tequilla and Jennifer Aniston, Sean Penn, Bruce Willis, and so on and so forth. Man. You gotta see it. I think they should make it a law, like everyone should watch at least one episode of Between Two Ferns a day. Try it. It’s good for your health. Funny or Die.

Endless, A Silent Whisper

The night belongs to us
We’re caught in a world of our own
We cling to the hope it would change for us
Is it in vain? Is it too late?
Why did it have to be you than I.
I heard the news today.

Is this the beginning of our last dance?
Once around the floor, can we do it again?
I feel the thrill from words we say,
I love you.

Embrace so much tighter
This could be our last together
Heaven sheds tears for the wounded hearts
Our forever has been torn apart

Our vast religions
Won’t help us answer
What was pre-destined for us to have
Since long ago.
It’s hopeless

The world it turns with us
Hold me in closer, don’t let go of me
Now we close our eyes and let go to the night
The night we feel alive.

Is this the beginning of our last dance?
Once around the floor, can we do it again?
I feel the thrill from words we say,
I love you.

Random thoughts on Nescafe’s Red Mug Session featuring URBANDUB.

Nescafe, You Rock! – first of all, thank you Nescafe for not only featuring Urbandub but mainly for believing on Filipino talents, for supporting great Pinoy bands and their music, and for going out of your way so to speak. You just earned my respect and I know a lot more people out there. Please keep it up. Mabuhay kayo, Nescafe!

Lalay, The Sales Expert – I kinda recognize that store, I know I’ve been there once to buy not a shirt but a ticket for their then concert in Music Museum (that was the best by the way). A friend told me that Lalay sometimes go there to act as the Sales Lady, the Manager, whatnot. Too bad I didn’t get to see her. But just like she said, she’s there at least twice or thrice a week, so, I’ll see her soon 😉

Jan Jan, The Skater Boy – it’s nice to know that he isn’t one of those posers, you know, those people dressing up like they know how to skate but really not? Not him. Kudos to you sir. Keep on drumming, keep on rocking, keep on skating, keep on inspiring people.

Gab, The Wrestler – I’m not surprise to say the least, to see him doing things like jujitzu (did I spell that right?). And he got jokes too. Really talented man. I remember him kicking a fan one time during a gig because that stupid fanatic went up the stage and grab the mic from Gabby. He got a taste of Gab’s go to move – the singing side kick. Hayaaaah!

John, The Painter –  I’m one of the millions who’s glad that you quit the job for the band. The talent that you have is so amazing, you gotta share it. And thanks for doing just that, John The Painter. I’d like to see one of his works though, one of his masterpieces. Next stop for me: Freedom Bar.

Little Piece of Heaven – singing my lungs out to the tune of any of their songs. It is liberating. For me at least. I know people wouldn’t want to hear it. I didn’t want to hear it. Wifey recorded my own session and man, I kicked some a$$! Not! Singing to Endless, A Silent Whisper with my headset on and caring about nothing else is such a heaven. Go ahead and do it! But please don’t tell me I didn’t warn you about the chaos you might create. I’m still alive so you should be fine 🙂

We have been listening to their songs for more than 2 decades now and I’m glad that they’re still playing their music. They may not be as famous after a change in personnel, twice actually, but they’re still there. Sharing their talents to the fans and what not.

During the Kick The C gig, they debut their new single, Perfect Crime. They said it’s going to be part of an album due to be released in the nearest future. For the mean time, let me share this recorded live performance by them. The video is kind of shaky but I still hope you enjoy it. Mabuhay, Musikang Pilipino! \m/
