The lapster, who had no idea what the hell was happening, still knew somehow. Because during a mid-class escape (to breathe), he sang me this song while playing the guitar in the hot hallway in the Middle School. (the mf is done with his grades)
I wanted to cry but didn’t have the energy.
I just listened to him sing this beautiful song.
And he had no idea how much he had captured what I had known for awhile.
Here are the lyrics of this obscure Eraserheads song, Tama Ka.
Title: Tama Ka
Album: Natin 99
Kay sarap sariwain ng malayang kahapon
Kay hirap isipin, kay layo ng noon
Tama ka nga
Walang saysay kung (itutuloy/ibabalik) pa
Hayaan na natin ang bukas
Ngunit sa gabing ito
Hawakan ang aking kamay
Mulit sundan ang mga unang yapak
Ng ating pagmamahalan
Minsan nagtatanong kung saan
Kailan, Paano na simulan
Ang katapusang mahirap takasan
Pero wag na, ibato mo na lang
Hayaan na natin (2x)
G has spoken.
Swak si Lapster.
Kuhang kuha nila Eli.
And my heart is thankfully, catching up to the Truth of the matter.
Ibato na lang natin sa ulan. 🙂
grateful slice: mga songs na tugma sa mga pangyayari sa buhay buhay. Choz
