Original compositions from the heart:

The Philippines, Beyond Imagination

I
Life has its way of preserving nature
Have you explored the Philippines
See the natural beauty of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao
In our eyes

II
Exotic, wild, abundant and free
That’s the way it should be
Luxuries and Lifestyle of the rich and famous
Are here to stay, Yeah

Chorus
So, come with us and discover
The Philippines, Beyond Imagination
Another dimension next to paradise
“Cause it’s the Philippines
Beyond Imagination

Refrain
Now is the time of our lives
To enjoy what we deserve
Let’s go to the promise land
And witness the realization of a promise

III
Singing and dancing are part of our lives
Join the fiestas, our cultural heritage
Plus the modern nightlife of our times
It’s next to never, yeah
Pa para, pa para, papara papa

Beautiful Cebu

I
Waking up early in the morning
Feeling my empty heart is breaking
Longing to see you for so many years
Just like way back, when I left you

II
Money, prestige and popularity
Are nothing without you, my beauty
I’m yours and you’re mine and that’s forever
It’s written in the sky above, I belong to you

Chorus
My beautiful Cebu, and you said;
“Gihigugma ko ikaw” and that’s I love you
My beautiful Cebu, “guwapa man gyod”
“Hangtod sa kahangturan” (Forever)

Bridge
Now, I could feel your warm embrace
Like the morning sun, under the velvet moon
Soothing seabreeze, wonderful sights
Here is where I belong, my beautiful Cebu

Ang Dalagang Pinay Sa Amerika

I
Totoo ba? Na “maldita” kuno
Ang dalagang Pinay sa Amerika
Alam mo ba ang kanyang istorya?
At kung saan sya galing sa mundong ito?

II
Ito ang perlas ng silangan…ang Pilipinas
Dito’y malawak ang bundok, dagat at hangin
Pulitiko, magsasaka o artista ay puwedeng Presidente
Tunay na kaibigan ng marami, kahit walang pera

Chorus
Mahal ang pamilya, kultura at bansa
At kayang ipaglaban kahit saan man
Matalino, masayahin at marunong
Ang dalagang pinay kahit pa sa Amerika

Bridge
Oy Dong! Si Inday…Sikat…sa Amerikia
Kakaka, kokoko, hahaha
Yan ang Pilipina sa Amerika
Kakaka, kokoko, hahaha!

Along the Way

La la la la la lah
La la la la la lah
La la la lah la la lah

1st Stanza
Along the road an angel guides my way
Through night and day her guiding light will stay
And carry on, carry on through all the hardships
And turns darkness into rays that will shine
Light the way when I’m in sorrow
Until darkness simply fades away

2nd Stanza
Along the way she’s always there to stay
To hold my hand she leads me like a star
That will shine just in time when I’m in trouble
Looking for another way
She will come to light the way in times of sorrow
Until darkness simply fades away

Bridge
So time will pass and songs won’t last
But she’ll always stay
Ooh ho she’s there to stay
With me along the way

Repeat 1st and 2nd Stanza lyrics then fade

Whenever the Wind Blows

1st Stanza
Whenever the wind blows whenever the rainfalls
Whenever the sun shines my heart will stay
You’re still in my memories you’re still in my mind
And whenever I look back at my past
I know I can’t let go cause the mem’ries and feelings still come back to me

2nd Stanza
Across all the rainbows through summers and falls
Whenever the sun shines my heart will stay
You’re still in my mem’ries you’re still in my life
And whenever I look back at my past
I know I can’t let go cause the mem’ries and feelings still come back

Chorus
The stars still shine and I know I’ll be fine
The sun still shines and I know we’ll be fine
And I know I can’t let go cause the mem’ries and feelings still come back to me

Bridge
It’s clear I’m still hurting
And I know that there’s no ending
God help me carry my burden

2nd Chorus
The stars still shine and I know I’ll be fine
The sun still shines and I know we’ll be fine
And I know I can’t let go cause the mem’ries and feelings still come back
Whenever the wind blows
