words & music by tolitz rosel


Now just look at one another, your sister and your brother
Everythin’s alright, hand in hand holdin’ each other tight
Knowin’ that you don’t really care, goin’ out into the sun
On the roof and havin’ fun, yeah
You don’t worry if your mother calls
You don’t go runnin’ around right back into your house and
You’re so excited that you just wanna shout, yeah yeah
You say yeah

Oh yeah, you say yeah, oh yeah, you say yeah

You don’t get angry when your mother slams the door
You don’t get angry when your father whips your butt on the floor
You don’t get angry when no one cares at all
You just shut your mouth and just smile it away
And you just say to yourself “who gives a damn anyway?”
Because baby
You know that no one‘s gonna dare to try to stop your mouth
from shoutin’ yeah

You say yeah, up on the roof everyday
You’re just smilin’ at the top and you don’t care

And you feel exhilaration, you feel that jubilation
No matter what occasion, shakin’ your head in delight
Over and over, sing “palova lova,” get your shit together
Your sister is callin’ you down
You wanna fly like Superman, you wanna get up so high
right up into the sky and gravity is smilin’ at you
And it’s shoutin’, you know it’s shoutin’ yeah

Oh yeah, you say yeah, oh yeah, you say yeah

You don’t get angry when your old crappy car doesn’t work
You’re not mad when you see people who greet you with a smirk
You know they don’t understand why you think life is so hard
It’s all hard work
You just work it out and continue to play
And you just say to yourself “who gives a damn, anyway?”
Because baby
You’ll reach the sky if you open your heart, free your mind!
And say yeah

You say yeah, up on the roof everyday
You’re just smilin’ at the top and you don’t care

You don’t get angry when your father comes and punches your face
You’re not sad when your mother screams all over the place
You know that life is so hard when you can find no escape
There is no escape!
You just shut your mouth and continue to play
With your mind and your heart, who gives a FUCK anyway?
Because no one’s gonna dare to try to stop your mind from flyin’
No one’s gonna dare to try to stop your heart from smilin’
No one’s gonna dare to try to stop your mouth from shoutin’ yeah

You say yeah, up on the roof everyday
You’re just smilin’ at the top and you don’t care
Oh yeah, you say yeah, up on the roof everyday
You’re just smilin’ at the top and they don’t care
You’re just jumpin’ from the top and they don’t care
You’re just fallin’ from the top and they don’t care
You just died on the spot and no one cares..

EDSA
words & music by tolitz rosel


Lumiko sa may kanto ng Roxas, isang aircon bus ang sinasakyan
Dumungaw sa aking bintana, minamasdan ang takbo
ng buhay sa labas... ang buhay ng tao

Paikot ikot ang mundo, hindi mo malaman kung sa’n ka patungo
Kailangan pa bang alamin kung saan hihinto

Matindi ang trapik sa Makati
Nagkalat ang mga naglalako sa Guadalupe
Andaming sasakyan sa daan,
Walang tigil ang singitan at pag-uunahan... walang bigayan

Paikot ikot ang mundo, hindi mo malaman kung sa’n ka patungo
Kailangan mo bang alamin kung saan hihinto

Duon sa EDSA, duon sa EDSA, doon sa EDSA
Duon sa EDSA, mabuti pang maglakad

Sa Cubao nakakita ng bangaan
Malayo pa ako sa ‘king pupuntahan
Hindi mo ba napapansin ang mga babaeng nagbebenta ng laman
Sa tabi ng daan

Paikot ikot ang mundo, hindi mo malaman kung sa’n ka patungo
Kailangan pa bang alamin kung saan hihinto

Duon sa EDSA, duon sa EDSA, doon sa EDSA
Duon sa EDSA, mabuti pang maglakad

Nagising dun sa may Monumento
Lampas na ‘ko sa ‘king gusting puntahan
Gusto ko nang tumalon sa labas, ngunit hindi pupuwede
Umaandar pa ang bus na sinakyan

Paikot ikot ang mundo, hindi mo malaman kung sa’n ka patungo
Kailangan mo nang alamin kung saan hihinto

Duon sa EDSA, duon sa EDSA, doon sa EDSA
Wala na akong pera, Wala na akong pera
Wala na ‘kong pera, duon sa EDSA
Napilitang maglakad...

UNFORTUNATE SON
words & music by tolitz rosel


Saw you walkin’ at the fields the other day
You were smilin’, you had nothing to say
You were so quiet that day the people heard not a sound
They think you’re insane

Coz you’re talkin’ to yourself the other day
You were cryin’, I had nothing to say
But I remember the day back when you were just a child
Your heart was runnin’ wild

And they said you’re the unfortunate one
Coz they never knew the battles you’ve won
You always tried hard to be a part of the crowd
But they said you’re the unfortunate one

You were happy, a child without a care
Loved your daddy, you were mommy’s sweet bear
But no one knew that one day things really got out of hand
You went home to find no man’s land

Mom was drinking, she was crying because Dad was cheating
She can’t handle the loss
You saw your Dad’s bloody body lying dead on the floor
Mommy said she doesn’t want it anymore

And they said you’re the unfortunate one
Coz they never knew the battles you’ve won
You always tried hard to be a part of the crowd
But they said you’re the unfortunate one

As a young man you always knew what to say
told your girlfriend you’ll be married someday
She said she loved you but you found her in your bed one night
She was sleepin’ with another man

What possessed you to do the things you did
With the gun that you found in your house that night
The sparks were flying in your eyes when you shot her head
Forever changing your life

And they said you’re the unfortunate one
Coz they never knew the battles you’ve won
You always tried hard to be a part of the crowd
But they said you’re the unfortunate one

And the years went by, then we saw you again
You’ve been living your life in a valley of tears
One day you walked through the fields, we never saw you again
Your life was burned by the light

And they said you’re the unfortunate one
Coz they never knew the battles you’ve won
You always tried hard to be a part of the crowd
But they said you’re the unfortunate one

You always tried hard to be a part of the crowd
But they said you’re the unfortunate one
Coz you are always the unfortunate one
Coz they want to believe you’re the unfortunate one
Coz you’ll always be the unfortunate son

KAIBIGAN
words by tolitz rosel & mok oliveros
music by fred agustin, jay baloyo & gaylord garcia


Ang alaala ng pagkabata na hindi maiaalis sa isipan ko’y
ang mga kaibigan na katulad n’yo
Kahit na magunaw pa ang buong mundo

At tuwing tayo’y magkikita, umaagos muli ang bukal ng saya
Hindi mapapantayan ang pagsasamahang magbarkada
Gaano man ang agwat

Kahit kailan kaibigan, kahit kailan ay daramay sa iyo
Sa lungkot, o saya, o saan saan pa
Pare ko, hindi magbabago

Sakali ma’t tayo’y may alitan, mga bagay na di mapagkasunduan
Nandiyan ka, at ako, at ang bote ng beer
Problema’y alisin at huwag nang isipin

Kahit kailan kaibigan, kahit kailan ay daramay sa iyo
Sa lungkot, o saya, o saan saan pa
Pare ko, hindi magbabago

Hinding hindi malilimutan ang pinagsamahan
Iba ang may pinagsamahan

At pag tayo’y magkasama, umaagos muli ang bukal ng saya
hindi mapapantayan ang pagsasamahang magbarkada
Gaano man ang agwat

Kahit kailan kaibigan, kahit kailan ay daramay sa iyo
Sa lungkot, o saya, o saan saan pa
Pare ko, hindi magbabago

Iba ang may pinagsamahan, iba ang may pinagsamahan
Sa lungkot o saya, o saan saan pa
Iba ang may pinagsamahan, kaibigan
