Waiting For The Rain To Pass

Just clocked-off after a long day of work
A hot bowl of beef soup with noodles and rice sounds good to eat
I took a seat on a table for four
While I waited for my order to come, I looked around out of habit
I noticed that there were no tables for two
It was all tables for four
In a place where people usually go to eat by groups or pairs at the least
I was the only one sitting alone on a table for four
Everyone was together with someone
Everyone was enjoying the company of another as they eat
Everyone except me
I felt a pang in my chest
I ate my food in silence and finished it quickly

After settling the bill, I went out to head home
Rain was pouring down, and I had no umbrella
The taxi stop was a long walk from the restaurant
I had no choice but to wait there until it stops raining if I don’t want to get soaked
While I stood there waiting for the rain to pass, I looked around out of habit
I saw a bunch of people running in the rain teasing and laughing together
I saw a few couples, some were sharing an umbrella
While some were running holding hands without an umbrella
Then I saw a few walking alone with their umbrella
And then there was me, standing waiting for the rain to pass without an umbrella and alone

That’s right, I had a fight with you this morning
We fight almost all the time
We fight even for the trivial things
We always fight and we always made up
I watched the rain while I waited for it to stop
A thought came to mind, why do I feel a pang in my chest?
Is it because I’m hurting?
Is it because I’m alone and lonely?
Why does it feel like forever waiting here?
Is there somewhere I want to go right now?
Is there someone I want to see right now?
I saw someone holding an umbrella walking towards my direction
I couldn’t recognize the face because of the distance
As I looked carefully trying to recognize the person
A thought came to mind, why am I thinking of you?
Is it because you’re the one I want to see right now?
Would it be okay if it’s not you?
Why do I feel disappointed at the idea?
Come to think of it, I always thought of you
I always wanted to start and end my days with you
I’m not sure when it started, but you were always in the picture of my daily life
Without you it would feel incomplete.

I was lost in my thoughts for quite some time
When I finally came around, I looked around out of habit
The rain had stopped and people were starting to come out
Going wherever it is they were headed
A bunch of people from the restaurant walked from behind me
Naturally, I stepped aside to look and let them pass
As the last person passed, I saw a familiar face standing on the other side of the door
It was the person I had been thinking all this time
It was the face I had wanted to see this whole time
It was you. All this time, it has always been you.
“My umbrella came to pick me up.” I said to you smiling
Smiling back, you held my hand and said “Let’s go home.”

That’s right, in a place were it seemed people were always together
I was not alone, you were always there together with me

Every Year I Dream of You

I met you again last night in my dreams
I guess it’s that time of the year again
It’s been so long since I last saw you
I can’t even remember when it was

I met a lot of people
I tried to find the right person
But none seemed right for me
They weren’t that bad at all
But there was always something off
None of it worked out
All of it ended badly

With you, I felt all sorts of things
I was happy, I was angry
I was jealous, I was hurt
And I was sad
But I still wanted to be with you
Thinking about it now,
I must have been crazy about you

Every year I meet you once in my dreams
I guess no matter how much I forget
I still can’t deny feeling lonely
I still miss you to the point of dreaming
If you happen to read this,don’t mind it
This is just a passing feeling
That comes once every year

It’s you I’m missing only because
I still haven’t met someone who
Drives me crazy, but can’t live without
It’s you I’m dreaming only because
I haven’t met the right person yet

Signal Fire

I’ll send a signal fire
Hoping someone will see
I’ll send a signal fire again
Hoping someone will see
I don’t care how many times I have to do it
As long as someone will see
No I don’t care at all
As long as someone will come

The world seems small with all the people on it
But the place I’m at seems too big for me
I live in the same world that seem small with all the people on it
Everyday I’m surrounded by people all the time
But I feel so alone in such a big world

I’ll send a signal fire
Hoping someone will see
I’ll send a signal fire again
Hoping someone will see
I don’t care how many times I have to do it
As long as someone will see
No I don’t care at all
As long as someone will come

The world seems big with all the people on it
Too big to find what I want and need
Too big to find who I want and need
But everybody seems to..
Have someone they want
And have someone they need with them
The world to find someone I want and need seem small
I’ve ran out of places to search
And so..

I’ll send a signal fire
Hoping someone will see
I’ll send a signal fire again
Hoping someone will see
I’ll keep sending signal fires
Until someone sees
I’ll keep sending signal fires
Until someone comes

Going in Circles

Like a silly dog chasing it’s tail
I keep going in circles
I keep chasing you
And I keep going back at zero

I just wanna find you
Why is it so hard?
I just wanna be with you
Is that so bad?

Like a playlist on loop
I keep going in circles
I played all the songs
And I keep going back to song one

I just wanna find you
Why is it so hard?
I just wanna be with you
Is that so bad?

I won’t give up
No, I can’t give up
Not until I find you
I can’t let go until you say so
Is that so bad?
I don’t wanna live in regret
Why is it so hard?

I just wanna find you
I just wanna be with you
Is that so bad?
Why is it so hard?

Baby you’re my coffee
I can’t resist you
I can’t stop looking for you
I can’t stop wanting you
I keep coming back for more

When it’s hot
You keep me cool
And when it’s cold
You keep we warm

Baby you’re my coffee
I can’t resist you
I can’t stop missing you
I can’t stop wanting you
I keep coming back for more

When I’m bored or out of it
You keep me focused
Or when I’m tired and sleepy
You keep me up

Not too sweet
Not too bitter
But also not bland
You’re just the right blend

Baby you’re my coffee
I can’t resist you
I can’t stop missing you
I can’t stop wanting you
‘Coz you’re just the right blend
I keep coming back for more

Talking Fights and Talking Silence

Do you remember how we used to watch basketball games every Friday night?
Do you remember playing the family computer every Friday whenever the season was over?
Or how we used to watch movies every Saturday night?
Sometimes we’d run out of new movies to watch, so sometimes we’d watch a movie twice
On Sundays you’d always eat lunch at our house, and wash the dishes together after
We always did things together, and we’d always fight when we’re together
My parents used to scold us whenever we fight, saying “Why stick together when you’re always fighting!?” we’d always stop fighting and laugh whenever we hear that

Then you moved and went to college
Ten years passed and I haven’t heard or seen anything from you
During the first two years that you left, my friends kept asking me about you
They couldn’t believe that you never contacted me after you left
Even I didn’t understand. After all, we were always together like a package
Then one day, we just stopped talking about you. Not even mentioning your name

We met again when I runaway to Paris
I was sick and tired of my life so I ignored you
I needed a break from the suffocating world
I needed to do something or I’ll really be in trouble
I took long walks and stopped at coffee shops to rest
I knew you followed behind whenever I took long walks
You sat on the next table whenever I stopped at coffee shops
I knew all that, but I still ignored you
Just like that, you followed me for a month
When you finally sat on my table, you didn’t say anything
Instead, you just smiled
We didn’t talk or anything, we just had coffee
On the way back, we just walked together not saying anything
Just like that, we had long walks and coffee breaks together for a month

When it was time to go back, you came with me to the airport
We waited together until the boarding time not saying anything
Before I left, you still didn’t say anything and just smiled
Two weeks passed after returning home and I was starting to get grumpy again
I was annoyed. I kept thinking about you
I kept thinking about the time we were together
And I kept thinking why you didn’t follow me back home
I thought why bother doing what you did when you’ll just leave again
Later that afternoon, I went to a nearby coffee shop to meet a friend
I messaged my friend that I’ll order first while I wait
The staff brought two cups of coffee on my table
I looked up the staff and said “Excuse me, but I only ordered…”
Then standing behind the staff, I saw you looking at me with a smile
I looked at you in surprise and amazement for about three seconds and smiled back

Do you remember what I said that time?
I said “I’m sorry I ignored you in Paris, I was angry at the world…”
You said “I disappeared from you, I deserved it. I’m sorry.”
Then you laughed and held my hand when I said “Let’s not ignore and disappear on each other.”

Red lips never lie
Good or bad

Red lips never lie
Every word was true
Every word came true
Red lips never lie

Hate the red lips
It never lies
Love the red lips

Like the red lips
It never lies
Is there something thumping in your chest?
Is there something got you thumping?
Is there someone got you thumping?
Love the red lips

Red lips never lie
Good or bad
Red lips never lie
Every word was true
Every word came true

Lately it’s been hard for me
I keep ignoring it
Keeping myself busy
Pretending not to feel anything
Pretending not to notice

Lately I’ve been thinking,
Wouldn’t it be nice
To have someone to walk with
To have someone to eat with
To have someone to play around with
To have someone to hold hands with

Wouldn’t it be nice
To have someone to share
Your precious and lamest times with

I have my family and friends
I laugh and cry with them
I lean on them just as they do to me
We take care of each other
But when I’m alone
I keep missing someone
I keep wanting be with that someone
It feels so sad missing that someone
A part of me feels missing
Because of that someone

Lately I’m so lonely
And it’s been hard for me
I keep ignoring it
Pretending not to feel anything
Pretending not to notice
I feel so lonely these days

Until You Come Back

Until you come back
I won’t tell you
I can’t tell you now
Not like this when you’re leaving
Hold on to what we have
And come back to me

I won’t go anywhere
I’ll be here
So you can find me
When you come back

I won’t go anywhere
Until you come back
I’ll tell you when you come back
Hold on to what we have
And come back to me

Until you come back
Hold on to me
I won’t go anywhere
Until you come back
Hold on to what we have

Come back
Hurry back
Come back to me

Warm cookies, warm milk
Cool breeze on a cool night
Warm hands, warm smile
Such a warm and beautiful you

Warm on cool
I like warm on cool
You’re just the right warm for me

I’m so cool
You’re so warm
I need you
You need me
Can we just be together?

Warm on cool
I like warm on cool
You’re just the right warm for me
