Buhay ko’y Ikaw Lamang by Tricia Amper Jimenez

This is one of my favorite songs in Tricia Amper Jimenez‘ Close to you CD.

I remembered I sung this song when I visited my relatives in Mindoro… that was mid-90’s…payat pa yata ako noon. 😀 Some of my cousin’s friends went to their house and asked me if they could go back later at night para mang harana. I said sure why not! It would be a nice experience, I guess. Take note, nang harana sila to befriend me, hindi para manligaw…haha! Anyway, later that night pumunta na nga sila sa bahay, (there were 4 of them if I remember it right) with matching gitara pa talaga… and their voice were all nice, they sing well. Maybe that’s the reason why they have the guts na mang harana. 😀

They asked me if I could sing for them and I said, huwhaat? I was hesitant at first pero dahil kinukulit nila ako pati ng mga pinsan ko eh di sige, kanta! I don’t know what to sing then, but since Buhay ko’y ikaw lamang ang naisip ko, eh yun na ang kinanta ko. Mukhang okay naman, they seemed to like the song (yung kanta lang, hehe) and even asked for the lyrics, kasi in fairness maganda naman talaga ang message ng kanta diba? 🙂

October 12, 2008 Update: You can now listen to this song. 🙂

Buhay Ko’y Ikaw Lamang

Singer: Tricia Amper Jimenez
Composer: Andrei Dionisio
Album: Close to You

Kung ako ay bibigyan ng pagkakataon
Na ulitin pang muli ang panahon
Ako’y maglilingkod sa ‘yo ng tunay
Ibibigay maging aking buhay

Koro:
Dalangin kong ako’y turuan mong
Maging lugod maging tapat sa ‘yo
Kahit na kailan man kita’y paglingkuran
Dahil ang buhay ko’y ikaw lamang

Tulay:
Nais ko ng alipinin mo
Ang buhay kong para sa ‘yo
Nasayang lang ang pagkakataon
Ito’y di ko nagawa noon.

O hindi na maibabalik ang nagdaan
At ngayon ang kailangang tunghayan
Kanyang ihahanda na rin ang bukas
Sa bawat luha ko’y siya ang lunas

(ulitin ang Koro)

Kahit na kailan man kita’y paglingkuran
Jesus ang buhay ko’y Ikaw lamang.

  4. @Thess, I do want to upload the song so everyone can hear it, but unfortunately it’s in a CDA. I still have to convert it to MP3. LIke ko yung voice ni Tricia Amper. She’s also the voice behind “I can feel it” jingle in the Palmolive Soap commercial ni Alice Dixson, and “Milo Everyday” jingle. 🙂

    Happy New Year to you Thess, Pusa and 12thirteen. Thank you all for the visit. 🙂
