Don't say you love me
Cause I might not say it back
I'm sorry I can't promise you anything
I can't tell you right now that we're okay

I can't promise you things
I won't say it back
I don't feel the same
And I will never feel the same

Please don't get mad
I'm telling you this now
For you not to get hurt
This is for you
Just please trust me now

I'd like to give you a chance
But honestly i don't feel the same
I can't love you now
I can't force these feelings
I'm truly sorry
Never fall in love with a poet
for their words are sometimes lies
on occasions they're a shield
on occasions a disguise

They will take you on a journey
upon which they bare their soul
in a bid to ease your burdens
in a bid to make you whole

But in every word they choose
for the stories that they tell
lies a little piece of heaven
and a little piece of hell

Tormented souls we poets are
sometimes quite broken and despaired
in search of lost expressions
missed by others who once cared

Never fall in love with a poet
unless you're prepared to share their pain
to hold them close on the darkest nights
over and again

"Did you fall for the brains?"

No. I fell for his soul. I fell for the person behind the facade. I fell for his cries behind smiles. I fell for his pains behind jokes.

It was beautiful - falling for someone who is as dented as you are.
Akala ko ikaw na
Akala ko kasi pwede
Akala ko may chance
Akala ko iba ka

Yun pala nauwi lahat sa maling akala
Umaasa ako
Umaasa na may pag-asa tayo
Umaasa na nagbabakasakali
Umaasa na maging tayo

Mahirap umasa
Pero sa totoo lang
Aasa ako para sayo
Baka pwede...

Sa isang sulyap ng ngiti mo
Natutunaw ang puso ko
Pilit na itinatago ang nararamdaman
O tila manhid ka lamang

Ngunit nakakapagod
Nakakapagod na habulin ka
Na bigyang saysay ang mayroon tayo
Ano nga ba ang mayroon tayo?
