PART OF THE 30-DAY SONG MEME CHALLENGE
Day 06 – a song that reminds you of somewhere
Eraserheads – Alapaap


Some of the best years, the best friends and the best moments I’ve had (so far) brewed from UP Diliman and that’s why the campus holds a dear place in my heart. I can’t remember a time when I did not want to leave school at all. Til now, driving past the acad oval and seeing the new buildings and colleges pull my heartstrings and bring an awesome wave of nostalgia and, admittedly, a bit of jealousy. The kids there now are having some of the best times of their lives just like we have.
An epic place deserves an epic song by an epic band. This song, released in 1994 (waaaaay before I entered UP) comes from my favourite Eraserheads albums of all time, Circus. Oh the controversy! It’s a bloody brilliant tune and it absolutely screams UP Diliman and everything we are. Matatapang at matatalino. 😉

May isang umaga na tayo’y magsasama
Hayaa’t halina sa alapaap
O anong sarap

Hanggang sa dulo ng mundo
Hanggang maubos ang ubo 

Hanggang gumulong ang luha
Hanggang mahulog ang tala

Masdan mo ang aking mata
Di mo ba nakikita
Ako ngayo’y lumilipad at nasa langit na
Gusto mo ba’ng sumama?

Hindi mo na kailangan na magtago’t mahiya
Hindi mo na kailangan ang humanap ng iba

Kalimutan na muna ang lahat ng problema
Huminga ka ng malalim at tayo’y lalarga na
Handa na ba’ng gumala?

Ang daming bawal sa mundo
Sinasakal nila tayo
Buksan ang puso at isipan
Paliparin ang kamalayan

Masdan mo ang aking mata
Di mo ba nakikita
Ako ngayo’y lumilipad at nasa alapaap na
Gusto mo ba’ng sumama?
