Tell Me A Lie So I Can Believe

 

Ang-Tagailog-At-Si-Mapolan-Dian-Masalanta

The Diwata Mapolan Dian Masalanta [Mariang Makiling] and Tagailog went separate ways without closure…

Turn out the light, our story is ending
We wore this thing so far down I can’t tell what I’m talking about
Take what you want, this old love is empty
And I don’t have anything here that I can’t live without
You say your spirits gone, I can’t say that your wrong
Oh, I know we tried, we came into it strong
Maybe we stayed in too long, woman, let’s say goodbye
Tell me a lie so I can believe
There’s more than this moment to moment passing us by
Look in my eyes and I’ll know it’s over
And I will go on from right here with the rest of my life
You say your spirits gone, I can’t say that your wrong
Oh, I know we tried, we came into it strong
Maybe we stayed in too long, woman, let’s say goodbye
I can take a loss I will move on, say goodbye, yeah, ooh
Let’s say goodbye
Oh, you said that I will never leave you
I said, “I think you’re crazy”
You said, “I would never leave you”
I said, “I think you’re crazy”
You said that I would never leave you
And I said, “I think you’re crazy”

You Can’t Save Me – Richie Kotzen

I sold my soul, just so I could feel pain
I broke my heart, so I couldn’t feel pain
I lost my faith, cuz I can’t justify the wait
I’ve got no hope, thats only for losers and fakes

I’m nothing but a user and an abuser
You don’t wanna know whats on my mind
I’m nothin but a fool but i’m not foolin’
Not afraid to make a fool out of myself

And fuck your money
Fuck your fame
Fuck my life I’ll walk away
And fuck our love
Fuck I’m sorry for anything I’ve ever done

(chorus)
You can’t save me
You’d better give yourself to someone else
Faded
Just fallin’ into my condition
Faded
You’d better put your time into something else
Save me
But don’t worry bout it now, better save your fuckin’ self

I lost my mind, Just so I could escape
I still got time, but I know its too late
I still got friends, to tell me I’m okay
I’m still alive, but I keep on testin fait

I’m nothing but a user and an abuser
You don’t wanna know whats on my mind
I’m nothin’ but a fool but I’m not foolin
Not afraid to make a fool out of myself

And fuck your money,
Fuck your fame,
Fuck my life I’ll walk away
And fuck our love,
Fuck I’m sorry for anything I’ve ever done

(chorus)
You can’t save me
You’d better give yourself to someone else
Faded
I’m Just fallin’ into my condition
Faded
You’d better put your time in something else
Save me
But don’t worry bout it now, better save your fuckin’ self

Try just a little
Understand what I’m tellin you
I’m not what you think
It started off doin the right thing
Life got in the way
I don’t know what to say
I’m not askin’ why

You can’t save me
You’d better give yourself to someone else
Faded
Fallin’ into my condition
Faded
You’d better spend your time on something else
Save me
But don’t worry bout it now, better save your fuckin’
self

(Always felt that each song carries a memory, each word an emotion, an expression of joy, of pain, the story of ourselves laid down with the notes and instruments , and it’s so close to the bone, you just have to sing along.)

Wrong Timing, Bad Timing

Most of the time I worry about the mental state of those people elected or appointed by those we voted for with optimism, and hope. We don’t seem to pick the right person for the job. Just like the old adage “always a Bridesmaid but never a Bride.”

There’s just not enough logic to go around, we may have mistakenly put all our marbles in one basket and wished it would stay there forever.

Now those marbles are lost.

Most of it, anyway.

I am not an Engineer. Not an Architect either. Never had the chance to involve myself with the intimacies of building houses, laying pipes nor paving roads. But I think I do possess a certain rationale, that when repairing a road, or what’s underneath these roads, requires dry climate,  a team of skilled workers to systematically dig the street, replace tubes and pipes, prep the dig for setting and cement and enough heat and warmth to cure the concrete pavement.
