Distract

Waiting
Title: Distract
By: Francis Moje

I’ve got a teary eye when I think of you.
I thought I was happy, but all of the time I was feeling blue.
All these time I knew it’s gonna happen.
When things started to go strong, I knew you were leavin’.

I wanna distract myself from thinking of you.
It’s hard to convince that all my dreams are through.
But when you’re coming back, my smile is going up to the moon.
But when you leave again, sea level starts to drown me dead.

Now, it’s hard to wake up when all I dream is you
It’s hard to breathe when you’re the fire and smoke around me.
I don’t want to move, when you’re embracing me.
I wanna paint a picture of you and post it in my memory.

I wanna distract myself from loving you.
It’s been a while since you pierced me, hanging.
But when you call, my heart rings — I don’t wanna drop the call.
But when you say good bye, I wanna cry….


Understand

Puerto Galera #summer

Title: Understand
Lyrics: Franco Moje

Why do I have to say again
“The truth seems like an air”?
Why do I fall again
In every word you speak even it has no meaning?

Why do I keep on burning
From your deep cold eyes?
Why do I keep coming back
Just to wipe out your tears?

C:
I need, I need to understand
Why do I feel so in love when we kiss,
When we hold our hands,
When we walk or drink a wine?
I need, I need to understand,
‘Cuz I’m hanging by a thread,
When you stare at my eyes,
And you say you love me yet you’re not in my arms.

Why are you keep coming close
Yet you’re breaking my heart?
Why did you softly pat my head
Then leave me with your captivating look?

Why do I keep on staring
At the cracked walls that reminds us?
Then again I say a little prayer
Just to fill this large space between us.


Bakit hindi mo maamin?

Bakit Hindi Mo Maamin?

Title: Bakit Hindi Mo Maamin?
Language: Filipino
By: Francis Moje

Bakit ba sa dami-dami ng tao na lalayo ng landas sa akin, ikaw pa na mahal ko? Lagi na lang ba na ganoon ang galaw ng tadhana sa pusong totoong nagmamahal? Kung tutuusin, kung hindi nagbiro ang oras at panahon, nararamdaman mo sana ng buo ang pagmamahal ko kahit bahagya lang ang mayroon ako. Hindi mo mararamdaman, ni minsan, na magloloko ako, na sasaktan ko ang puso mo, na paiiyakin kita o paglalaruan. Kung nalulungkot ka, pasasayahin kita. Kung mararamdaman mong mabigat ang iyong pasanin, kakargahin kita. Lahat ng ito gagawin ko sa’yo.

Kung tutuusin kulang pa nga. Dahil ANG LAHAT KO dapat ay para sa’yo. Pero hindi lang ako mangangako, bagkus gagawin ko lahat ng ito. Dahil sa gitna ng problema ko, sa gitna ng mga bagay na gumugulo sa isip, sa gitna ng sakit at lahat ng kalungkutan na mayroon ako, ikaw lang…ikaw lang…ikaw lang nagpapangiti sa mga labi ko.

Dahil kahit saglit lang kita makita, dahil kahit sa Facebook lang tayo magkausap, isang “Hi!” mo lang daig ko pa ang taong nanalo sa lotto.

Iba ang tama ko sa’yo. Mahal kita at alam mo ito.

Ngunit sa kabilang dako ng mga ngiti na ito, nasasaktan ako, kasi may iba ka na pala.

Pero bakit ganoon? Parang sa bawat salitang binabanggit mo, may pag-asa akong nakikita. Bakit sa tingin ko, hindi ka masaya sa kanya? Bakit ba sa tuwing sinasabi ko na nakikipag-date ako sa iba, sinasabi mo na iwanan ko s’ya dahil hindi ako totoong masaya?

At bakit alam mo? Bakit alam mo na sa bawat ngiti ko, habang kaharap kita, ikaw ang gusto kong makasama? Bakit alam mo na sa buong buhay ko ikaw lang ang “ideal man” ko? Bakit ba kahit alam mo ang lahat ng ito, hindi ka pa rin naniniwala na totoo ang puso ko para sa’yo?

Ano’ng hinahanap mo sa akin na hindi mo matagpuan? Ano’ng tungkol sa akin ang hindi mo maunawaan?
Bakit hanggang ngayon, nasa kanya ka pa rin, kahit alam ko…kahit nasa mata mo…nakakakita ako ng pagmamahal mo’y para sa akin?

Bakit hindi mo maamin?


Life Tonight

Title: Life Tonight
By: Francis Moje

My life tonight, you can be my love and honey
My Kyptonite, you can be my everything.
You showered me with smile,
That what makes my heart melt.
I love you, my soul, my forever,
Give me chance just for tonight.

You knew, that you’re my ideal one,
That someone I will always love.
I love the small things you were giving,
I no longer have to demand.
You may live for the rest of your days,
Give me chance just for tonight.

Life Tonight, I must be dreaming
Life Tonight, I will cherish this forever.
Life Tonight, give me warm like a red wine.
Oh, my life tonight, you are my life tonight.


Interlude: Going Back to What I Love

 

During my recent reminiscing — or let’s say a contemplation or realization session all by myself– moment in my bed, I realized that I have lost so much things and opportunities in my life that I should have been doing in the past few years before I reach this certain level of my age. Maybe if I have been doing these certain things I like, I perhaps master those fields already and i

One of those skills I’d like to highlight is none other than swimming.

I love water a lot. I enjoy being at the beach, to feel its waves and other health benefit it gives me, and I thought of it every time people mention about going out of town. I also enjoy lap training in swimming pools. But that skill didn’t work out that well, because I didn’t practice regularly. I felt it like it’s my dying skill.

To give solution to that and to revive my frustrated Olympic swimming skills, I just came back from my so called “training”.

During the training, I could literally feel the horse beneath the shortness of my breath, the lack of movement control in the water and my speed has gone bye-bye. The thing remained in me is my gift for backstroke — I still does it good. To be honest, I think I’m one of those who needs a trainer to know the basics again.

I don’t easily give up, though. I just feel the need to get things back again, just to make sure that I won’t get rotten and I won’t go home defeated in the upcoming company sportsfest.

So if you are reading this and you’re still doing something you love, I’ve got a great tip: “DO NOT STOP!” But if you must do, do all things you can to start it all over again. Never remove it from the corners of your neck.

See yah! Happy Summer, Philippines!


Wrong Turn

Wrong Turn

Title: Wrong Turn
By: Francis Moje

I’ve got it all, I’ve seen it all
When we were loving each other.
True loves wait but you just hate;
You were only seeing my mistake.
I couldn’t breathe, Your arms were stiff;
You wrapped me, chained me, and sexed me.
You didn’t know that I loved you despite
Of all the things you’ve done.

But there was a wrong turn,
There was a wrong turn, honey.
You chose the wrong path,
You chose to be alone, honey.

We could have been the happiest together,
But took the wrong turn, honey

I need a beer, you made all my fear
That I tremble fear with love today.
I couldn’t believe, It couldn’t find relief
‘Cuz it should’ve not been like that.
I called it quit, yes, I chose it.
Its pain is real, no more game or deal.
Pain know no chances when
We were talking about hurt.

‘Cuz there was a wrong turn,
There was a wrong turn, honey.
You chose the wrong path,
You chose to be alone, honey.

We could have been the happiest together,
But took the wrong turn, honey

You’re revenge couldn’t save us from what we are today.
What we are today is something you…we deserve,
I don’t someone like you in my life,
‘Cuz you took the wrong turn.
