Can’t wait to sing this song…

I have always been a fan of Karen Carpenter ever since I can remember. I can sing most of her songs and can give them justice, too. My favorite is “I won’t Last A Day Without You”, hehehe. Oo, may continental value sa akin ang kantang ito. Take note, hindi po sentimental… talagang Continental po. Kasi po minsan sa buhay ko, nung ako po ay nakatira pa sa ibang continent na tinitirhan ko ngayon, ay naging makahulugan sa akin ang kantang ito. Pero noon lang po talaga yun.

Anyway, I found this in YouTube by accident. Ang kanta po ay sinulat ng kapatid ni Karen na Singer, Composer, at Song writer din na si Richard Carpenter. Natapos niya ito pero sa kasawiang palad ay hindi na ito nabigyang buhay ni Karen. Ngayon po ay pumayag si Richard na ang ating kapwa Filipino singer na si Claire dela Fuente ang magbiga buhay sa kanta. Oo na. Huli na naman po ako sa balita. Pero eto na siya. Ang gustong-gusto ko na pong kantahin sa karaoke. Can’t wait to get a new chip for my mic so I can actually sing this song, too.



There was a certain face
That filled a thousand nights
With all the sweetest dreams and promises
Of paradise
But that face was gone
When the dawn would come and steal you
Yet I still could feel you
Waiting just a kiss away

I’d surely know your face
When love would cast its spell
I’d recognize each curve and line of you
I knew it well
Now at last you’re here and I can tell

(*) Something in your eyes I see
Is all I’ve ever wanted
(And) Something in your smile for me
Is calling out my name
Your eyes it seems
Are mirrors of my dreams
In ways I can’t explain
And my heart will never be the same

We never said a word
As if we’d always known
That through the bittersweet of waiting
We were not alone
Now we’re close enough
For the touch of love to find us
Fantasies designed us
But they never really could
Begin to measure you
No pictures ever do
And as I watch you framed in sunlight
And a sky of blue
I know what my life’s been leading to
