I've had this song on repeat for the last 20 minutes. It's a beautiful uplifting song and this was a beautiful cover of the original.
The song is sung in Tagalog, which unfortunately I'm not that good at. But here's a rough translation of the song's lyrics. Again a beautiful uplifting song.
Don't look down on yourself Don't think that you're useless That's a damn big lie
Tomorrow the sun will rise again But only for those with the patience to wait
Don't give in my friend Keep your chin up high
Because nothing's going to happen There's nothing for us to gain Don't try to stop the rain from falling
There's time to be a king There's time to be down on the ground Because that's just the way life goes
It's sunny, it's raining That's just the way life goes
Heard this song on the radio last night, and it will not leave my mind. What a beautiful song.
“As Your love, in wave after wave Crashes over me, crashes over me For You are for us You are not against us Champion of Heaven You made a way for all to enter in” ♪ ♫ ♪
It's been what, 5 years, since Chester Bennington took his own life. He struggled with depression and substance abuse for most of his life. If you paid attention to the lyrics in their songs, you would know this to be true.
I'm five years late in sharing this, but this is such a fitting and wonderfully done tribute to Chester Bennington. Wherever you are man, I hope you found peace.
Ran into this hilarious channel on YouTube. What's awesome about these videos is that they actually got real band members to show up in them. If you're into emo music, or even just grew up listening to it, you might enjoy these videos.
