TADHANA
Up Dharma Down

Sa hindi inaaasahang
Pagtatagpo ng mga mundo
May minsan lang na nagdugtong,
Damang dama na ang ugong nito
‘Di pa ba sapat ang sakit at lahat
Na hinding hindi ko ipararanas sayo
Ibinubunyag ka ng iyong mata
Sumisigaw ng pag-sinta.

Ba’t di pa patulan
Ang pagsuyong nagkulang
Tayong umaasang
Hilaga’t kanluran
Ikaw ang hantungan
At bilang kanlungan mo
Ako ang sasagip sa’yo.

Saan nga ba patungo,
Nakayapak at nahihiwagaan
Ang bagyo ng tadhana ay
Dinadala ako sa init ng bisig mo.

Ba’t ‘di pa sabihin
Ang hindi mo maamin
Ipa-uubaya na lang ba ‘to sa hangin
huwag mong ikatakot
Ang bulong ng damdamin mo
Naririto ako at nakikinig sa’yo.

Hooohh… hoooohh…
Hooohh… hoooohh…
Hooohh… hoooohh…

It’s kinda difficult and time consuming to translate the song word by word but this song is about Destiny making a way for two people to be together while the first person is trying to convince the second person, who definitely feels the same way, to let it just be and conquer the fear because it was fate who brought them into each other’s arms.

OPM or Original Pinoy Music is so unique you would close your eyes when you hear one and would let it bring you to some place the song is leading you. Savour the lyrics, so soothing and “tagos sa puso”.

*Maybe I’ll try to update this post when I have already translated it nicely… when my mind’s ready. 🙂 *
