Dati, hindi kita trip.
Hindi ko din trip yung banda mo, and I always made sure na maging snob at mayabang sayo...or I would at least try, kasi di naman talaga ako ganun...pero gusto talaga kita yabangan everytime nagkikita tayo.
Ganun ako sayo simply because I was intimidated by you, your band, and your crowd.
Pero kahit anong gawin kong angas sayo, you would still always be consistently kind and soft spoken.
Hanggang wala nalang talaga akong magawa kundi maging mabait din sayo kasi wa-epek yung mga pa-angas-angas ko sayo.
Wala din choice kundi mabilib sa banda ninyo dahil sobrang professional at hardworking nyo lahat.
Malungkot ako na nawala ka agad, pero masaya ako na nakilala kita.
