Lyrics
Dahil sa `yo nais kong mabuhay
Dahil sa `yo hanggang mamatay
Kung tunay man ako
Ay alipinin mo
Ang lahat sa buhay ko'y
Dahil sa `yo

Dahil sa `yo
Dahil sa `yo ako'y lumigaya
Pagmamahal ay alayan ka
Dapat mong tantunin
Wala ng ibang giliw
Puso ko'y tanungin
Ikaw at ikaw rin

Dahil sa `yo
Ako'y lumigaya
Pamamahal ay alayan ka
Kung tunay man ako
Ay alipinin mo
Ang lahat sa buhay ko'y
Dahil sa `yo

Beautiful
There is a strength behind your tender, sweet voice.
You must cultivate your gift. THis song has some
timing problems but they can fixed with practice.
Thank you for sharing. Also, try to record and mix
your voice in a way that will give it a little more
"presence"...this sounds a little bit distant although
that is not bad either. Makes it sound like a song
drifting across the sky from a faraway island.
Beautiful. Post more!

You Have a Fine Voice

Louder vocals
you have a really nice voice. It isn't loud enough in this though. Don't be afraid, I've heard people who cannot sing make some very touching and beautiful music.

Thanks!

I've never heard a Filipino folk song before. Now I'd like to

into posting.
