Sundo, IMAGO

September 9, 2008

I’m not the best person to ask about contemporary OPM of any genre. However I do know I good band when I see one, and the songs of IMAGO are one of the nicest songs I’ve heard. WEll this one’s not so new, it goes a few years back, but i really adore the lyrics. very sweet and melancholic. Perfect for the faint of heart. It basically speaks about singer willing to look for and fetch the person from his sadness, and patch him up new.

Sundo

by imago

Kay tagal kong sinusuyod
Ang buong mundo
Para hanapin,
Para hanapin ka
Nilibot ang distrito
Ng iyong lumbay
Pupulutin, pupulutin ka

It’s been a long time that I’ve been searching
the entire world
Just to look for
Just to look for you
I’ve wandered down the district of your loneliness
To pick you, To pick you up

Sugod
written and performed by: Sandwich

Sugod mga kapatid //CHARGE** brothers
Tayo ay magsama-sama //join together
Iwagayway na ang bandera //Wave the banner
Rakenrol hanggang umaga  //Rock and Roll up to the morning
Itext mo na sina shaun at jopet//Text Shaun and Jopet
Lagyan ng gel
Ang buhok na bagong gupit//Put the gel on your newly cut hair
Ilabas mo na//Get it out
Sapatos at lonta//The shoes and jeans
Hanep pumorma//Cool style
Walang kokontra//Don’t argue with me

REFRAIN
sang linggong pinag-ipunan//One week you’ve saved for it
Isang buwan mong inabangan//One month you’ve waited
Ang feedback ng mga gitara/For the feedback of the guitars
Mga paborito mong kanta(hala bira)/of your favorite songs

CHORUS

Sugod mga kapatid //CHARGE** brothers
Tayo ay magsama-sama //join together
Iwagayway na ang bandera //Wave the banner
Rakenrol hanggang umaga  //Rock and Roll up to the morning
Ngayong gabi ay magsasaya//Tonight we’ll have revelry
Manonood ng mga banda//We’ll watch all the bands
Sumayaw na parang asong ulol//Dance like mad dogs
Sa bajo at tambol na lumilindol//To the earthquakes which the drums let loose.

REFRAIN
Isang linggong pinag-ipunan//One week you’ve saved for it
Isang buwan mong inabangan//One month you’ve waited
Ang feedback ng mga gitara/For the feedback of the guitars
Mga paborito mong kanta(hala bira)/of your favorite songs

CHORUS

Sugod mga kapatid //CHARGE** brothers
Tayo ay magsama-sama //join together
Iwagayway na ang bandera //Wave the banner
Rakenrol hanggang umaga  //Rock and Roll up to the morning

Misterio

by Slapshock

Tumatawag, Naghihintay!)
Sa tuwing pag-gising mo…
(Lumilingon Papalayo!)
Sa tuwing pag-titig mo…

Calling, Waiting!

Everytime you wake up

I’m glancing farther every time

With your every stare

Nagtataka kung bakit ka pa nag-iisa
bawat lungkot bumabalot ang iyong tuwa

I wonder why you’re still alone

Why sadness blankets your happiness

napapawi ang lumbay…
Dahil sayo…Dahil sayo…(Dahil sayo!)
lumiliwanag ang buhay…
Dahil sayo…Dahil sayo…(Dahil sayo!)

The sadness fades

Because of you… Because of you (because of you!)

Life illuminates

Because of you… Because of you (because of you)

(Sumisigaw bawat araw!)
ng makikita ka…
(Natatanaw ko ang mundo!)
sa iyong mga mata…

 (Shouting each day!)

Whenever I see you…

(The world comes into sight)

Inside your very eyes…

Nagtataka kung bakit ka ba nag-iisa
bawat lungkot bumabalot ang iyong tuwa

Wondering why, you are alone

Why sadness blankets your happiness

napapawi ang lumbay…
Dahil sayo…Dahil sayo…(Dahil sayo!)
lumiliwanag ang buhay…
Dahil sayo…Dahil sayo…(Dahil sayo!)

The sadness fades

Because of you… Because of you (because of you!)

Life illuminates

Because of you… Because of you (because of you!)

Ito na nga ba ang misterio
na bumabalot sayo,
na ka tago sayo,
lumalapit sayo…
(Ako’y bumabalot sayo, na ka tago sayo, lumalapit sayo…)

Is this the mystery

That’s wrapped all over you

It’s hidden from you

It’s coming closer to you

(I’m wrapped all over, hidden from view, coming closer to you.
