Many of my best friends in the Philippines and around the world are Bisaya. My best friend Carlo is Bisaya (from Iligan) and even the photographer who shot my 2nd album cover; Rennan Quijano is Bisaya.
This song was originally written and recorded by the Cebuano band "Wet Slipperz".
There are many great Bisaya songs ...I love Chinita, Bisan Pa, Usahay, Gugmang Gi-atay ...etc. ...there should really be more famous Bisaya songs ...I mean, why not? ...many talented musicians in the Philippines are Bisaya ...and that's their native language but they still write only Tagalog songs. If the market was bigger I'm sure they'd write Bisaya songs as well :) ...so it's one of my new goals to help promote Bisaya songs, as well as the great songs of other dialects of the Philippines as well. I've done covers of hundreds of Tagalog songs and I love Tagalog, but I'm also excited about branching out into this new musical and cultural territory. ...I welcome you along on my quest :)
Big thanks to my duet partner in this song Anna Rabtsun from Russia for being brave enough to try singing in a new language when I suggested we cover this song. I think she did a great job!

English Translation by Sophia Lorene:
Forgetting you is not easy.
Until now I'm still waiting
For our yesterday to come back
Even if you've already forgotten me.
Even if you have someone else now
You're still the one I love
Even if I'll only get hurt
As long as you're happy, I'll accept everything
I see your situation now
It's really different when you were with me
In his side you're so happy
And here I am hoping for you to come back
Until now I'm still hoping
That time will come that you'll come back
