I Can’t Be Without You (rough recording)

Wrote and composed this song for my brother Joshua’s and Kristie’s wedding. Thank you Eman Omaga for providing the vocals, Archie Castillo for playing the melody on guitar, and for the rest of the quartet (cello, flute, violin). Sorry for the background noise but the plan is to record the real thing next year.

Verse 1
Beautiful girl
You light up my life
Every time I see you
I don’t want to go
We’re in a moment
A moment in time
We must move forward
Or say goodbye

I can’t be without you
Say you’ll stay

Verse 2
I’ve been a silly boy
Been trying to deny
But we know our answer
It’s always been the same
We’re in a moment
A moment in time
We can move forward
Let’s not say goodbye

I can’t be without you
Say you’ll stay

Bridge:
We’ve gone, we’ve gone
Through a million things
We’ve gone, we’ve gone
So far…

I know, I know
I must take this step
I know, to where
You are…

Where you are…
Where you are…

You know I love
And all that you are
I make this promise
To never be far

I can’t be without you
Say you’ll stay

Buti Nalang (melody)

Finally, here is the melody I promised a long time ago to post. Just hooked my keyboards back on to work on my brother  Joshua’s song, so was finally able to do a rough recording for this.

Buti Na Lang

Verse 1:
‘Kala ko
Tatanda na lang akong ganito
Mag-isang tataba’t kakalbo
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang ngayon
Sabay tayo…

Verse 2:
‘Kala ko
Na wala ng iibig sa akin
Na kabigha-bighanii ng tulad mo
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang nagtagpo
Ang ating puso…

Chorus:
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Di natigil
Sa maling akala
Ang ating kuwento
Buti na lang
Mali ang akala ko

Bridge:
Buti na lang
Tayo’y naniwala
Na ang tunay na pagibig
Ay galing lamang sa langit
Buti na lang talaga
Buti na lang

Chorus:
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Di natigil
Sa maling akala
Ang ating kuwento
Buti na lang
Mali ang akala ko

Ending Verse:
Alam ko
Na Ikaw lamang sa buong mundo
Humahawak at mayari ng puso ko
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang talaga
Buti na lang talaga

Buti na lang talaga
Ako ang pinili mo
