In all colors and in all grandeur they were all displayed
I looked around in search of the one perfect piece
I can buy more than one but that’s too much
It’s a sin
I saw one particular piece that’s almost hidden on a corner shelf
Timid, gentle and simple – just the way I like them
Approaching it makes the feeling stronger
Yes, this is the perfect piece, well, at least for today
Asking for more than that is a sin
I laid out the notes in exchange of the goods
Preference is unwrapped as they feel good in my hands
I left the shop with satisfaction up the brim
Today’s urge to splurge was fulfilled
Thinking of doing it again is a sin

walang laman ang daan, walang hadlang.
ngunit hindi ang aking kaisipan.
ito ay nag-uumapaw ng kung anu-anong mga diwa.
diwang hindi na dapat binalikan,
diwang pilit kinakalimutan subalit sila'y mapilit.
tinakbo ko ang daan na walang hadlang
sa paniniwalang ito'y mas makabubuti.
ngunit may mga taong nilagpasan na nag-aabang.
hindi na sila napansin, hindi na pinansin.
halos walang aninong nasilayan.
ginapang ko ang daan na walang laman.
pagod pero pursigidong makarating.
sa dami ng dala ay nahihirapang makausad.
ngunit itutuloy ang naumpisahan, paroroonan ma'y 'di na lam.
kanlungan ma'y 'di matanaw, kanlungan hindi mabatid.
kanlungan ma'y hinahabol, kanlungan na hinahanap nang pilit.
kanlungan na sa isang pikit ay tiyak masisilip.
hindi na kailangan pang lumakad, hindi na kailangan pang tumakbo
ngunit kailangan ipagpatuloy ang paglalakbay.
inaasam-asam na kanlungan nagtatago sa karimlan.

The music, the cinematography and most especially the lines weaved seamlessly and formed one very memorable clip. I wish I can bottle this clip up and have a drop or two in my morning cup of coffee so each day moving forth I will be inspired. I have the song in my phone and I imagine this each time I play the song. I guess, that would suffice.
Annette: I'm impressed.
Sebastian: Well, I'm in love.
"Pull me out from inside
I am folded and unfolded and unfolding
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside"

I just stumbled upon this video when I got home today when the television was tuned in to MTV with this video playing. The melody has that Jason Mraz feel to it and the lyrics are quite nice. I like how the word "MAÑANA" was incorporated in the chorus.
And oh yeah, Ricky Martin is so hot here!
I can just watch this video all day and adore Ricky Martin's sweet and sexy smile.
The Best Thing About Me is You
Ricky Martin feat Joss Stone
So Babe, don’t say no
Come on and just say yes
You know it’s time to keep it simple
Let’s take a chance and hope for the best
Life is short, so make it what you wanna
Make it good, don’t wait until mañana
I think I’m cool cause your name’s on this heart shaped tattoo.
Now best thing about me is you

From afar I watched you both.
At a distance I observed.
The way you laugh at his jokes.
The way you touch his shoulder for strokes.
So gentle yet not boring.
So exciting but never chaotic.
Purple. Yellow. Blue and more blue.
I’ve seen the colors on you two.
They burst like fireworks in the perfect night sky.
You both sparkle and I wish to stare and lie.
How endearing you are to your audience.
Every scene was a cinematic experience.
I longed for the day I would be introduced.
I cemented possibilities, enthused.
You and me, me and you, you and you.
A party of three --- a playful imagery.
Tossed in the air and let it be.
You and you and I --- free.
