Umiiyak ka na naman
You’re sobbing again
Langya talaga, wala ka bang ibang alam
Outrageous; don’t you know anything
Namumugtong mga mata
Those puffy eyes
Kailan pa ba kaya ikaw magsasawa
Just when will you get sick of it

Sa problema na iyong pinapasan
The problem that you’re carrying
Hatid sayo ng boyfriend mong hindi mo maintindihan
Caused by your boyfriend whom you don’t understand
May kwento kang pandrama na naman
You’ve got another dramatic story to tell

Parang pang TV na walang katapusan
It’s like an endless TV series
Hanggang kailan ka bang ganyan
Until when will you stay like that
Hindi mo ba alam na walang pupuntahan
Don’t you know that having to bear an idiotic boyfriend
Ang pagtiyaga mo dyan sa boyfriend mong tanga
Who does nothing but make you cry
Na wala nang ginagawa kundi ang paluhain ka
Will lead you to nothing

[Chorus:]
Sa libu-libong pagkakataon na tayoy nag-kasama
In those thousands of occasions we’ve been together
Iilang ulit palang kitang makitang masaya
I’ve seen you happy only a few times
Naiinis akong isipin na ginaganyan ka nya
It aggravates me to think of how he treats you
Siguro ay hindi niya lang alam ang iyong
That perhaps he just doesn’t know
Tunay na halaga
Your true importance

Hindi na dapat pag-usapan pa
We should not discuss it any longer
Napapagod na rin ako sa aking kakasalita
I’m also exhausted from talking too much
Hindi ka rin naman nakikinig
You’re not even listening
Kahit sobrang pagod na ang aking bibig
Even when my mouth is already weary

Sa mga payo kong di mo pinapansin
My advices that you pay no heed to
Akala mo’y nakikinig di rin naman tatanggapin
As if you’re listening but won’t even consider them
Ayoko nang isipin pa
I don’t wanna think about it anymore
Di ko alam ba’t di mo makayanan na iwanan sya
I don’t know why you can’t leave him

Ang dami-dami naman diyang iba
There’s a lot of other guys out there
Wag kang mangangambang baka wala ka nang ibang makita
You don’t need to worry that you won’t find one
Na lalake na magmahal sayo
A man who will love you
At hinding hindi nya sasayangin ang pag-ibig mo
And will never ever trifle your affections

[Repeat Chorus]

Minsan hindi ko maintindihan
Sometimes I don’t understand
Parang ang buhay natin ay napagti-tripan
It seems our lives are being toyed with
Medyo malabo yata ang mundo
Perhaps the world is somewhat ambiguous
Binabasura ng iba ang siyang pinapangarap ko
People dismiss my dreams as complete trash

[Repeat Chorus]

Random rambling

  • IDK why I chose this song. Reading the English translation helps me realize that I probably won’t like this song if I heard it for the first time in this era. But the thing is this song is a classic OPM rock song. The words kinda leave a bad aftertaste, but the tune makes the song barely passable based on my arbitrary standards :v
