Your Universe (Rico Blanco)

Another music find from our stay in Manila. It was one of the most frequently aired videos at the time but the first play already had me hooked. The video, shot in Tagaytay with Taal Volcano in the background, caught my attention due to our recent sojourn to said volcano. Lyrics are romantic simplicity; if anyone happened to serenade me with this song, I think I’d melt into a puddle of giggly goo. I also have to admit that even with my inclination to by turned off by Filipino men, Rico Blanco is not at all hard on the eyes.

Wish I had the presence of mind to grab the CD while we were in the Philippines. Can’t buy it from abroad. Pout.

Tell me something
When the rain falls on my face
How do you quickly replace
It with a golden summer smile?

Tell me something
When I’m feeling tired and afraid
How do you know just what to say
To make everything alright?

I don’t think that you even realize
The joy you make me feel when I’m inside your universe
You hold me like I’m the one who’s precious
I hate to break it to you but it’s just the other way around
You can thank your stars all you want but
I’ll always be the lucky one

Tell me something
When I’m ’bout to lose control
How do you patiently hold my hand
And gently calm me down?

Tell me something
When you sing and when you laugh
Why do I always photograph
My heart flying way above the clouds?

I don’t think that you even realize
The joy you make me feel when I’m inside your universe
You hold me like I’m the one who’s precious
I hate to break it to you but it’s just the other way around
You can thank your stars all you want but
I’ll always be the lucky one

Woo…

I don’t think that you even realize
The joy you make me feel when I’m inside your universe
You hold me like I’m the one who’s precious
I hate to break it to you but it’s just the other way around
You can thank your stars all you want but
I’ll always be the lucky one

You can thank your stars all you want but
I’ll always be…
The lucky one

I’ll always be the lucky one
I’ll always be the lucky one
