Independence Day

Philippine FlagOn this 109th year of Philippine Independence, I’m hanging the Philippine flag on this piece of online space to tell the world that I am forever proud of being a Filipino!

But, perhaps, talking of my beloved country, indeed, there’s no other place like home. Not even the wealth of the desert nor the beauty of the mountains, nor the skyscrapers of the crowded cities can ever replace that.

There can only be one home, and I’m homeward bound….

(in two or three months….) ๐Ÿ™‚

Homeward Bound
by: Simon & Garfunkel

Im sittin in the railway station
Got a ticket for my destination
On a tour of one night stands
My suitcase and guitar in hand
And every stop is neatly planned
For a poet and a one man band

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, where my thoughts escaping
Home, where my musics playing
Home, where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Everydays an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines
And each town looks the same to me
The movies and the factories
And every strangers face I see
Reminds me that I long to be

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, where my thoughts escaping
Home, where my musics playing
Home, where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Tonight Ill sing my songs again
Ill play the game and pretend
But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity
Like emptyness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, where my thoughts escaping
Home, where my musics playing
Home, where my love lies waiting
Silently for me
Silently for me
Silently for me
