OPM Lyrics

“Pasakalye” – Zia Quizon

This was a really difficult song for me translate. There’s some slang that I don’t really understand, so I had to ask family and friends for help on certain words. I tried my best on this one, but take the translations with a grain of salt.

Anyway, enjoy!

“Pasakalye” (Someone who’s indirect when wanting to express something)

Huwebes ng umaga nasalubong ko ikaw / Thursday morning I ran into you
Sabi mo “hello”, ang sabi ko ay “hi” / You said “hello”, I said “hi”
Tapos ay wala ka nang masabi pa, sabaw / And then you had nothing else to say, stupid
Sorry but I had to say goodbye

Pagtalikod ay tinawag mo ako again / When I turned away, you called me again
Medyo para bang naaalangan / You seemed hesitant
Di ko rin alam ano kaya ang gagawin / I also didn’t know what to do
Bawat hirit mo bitin naman / Every attempt you make always leaves me in suspense

Puro intro, pumoporma / You’re all intros, trying to look good
Tyumetiyempo lang pala / You were just trying to find the right timing

CHORUS:
Pumapasakalye 
/ Being indirect
Kung pwede lang naman na magpasimple / If you can just be simple
Ansabe? Anyare? / What did you say? What happened?
Puno ka ng paduday weh / You’re full of bullshit
Pumapasakalye / Being indirect
Ayoko nang nagbabasakale / I’m done taking chances
Answabe, kunware / Pretending to be suave
Ano na ba kase? / What’s going on?

Mismong magpakwela lalo’t pang nagbibiro / You’re easily gimmicky and you joke even more
Pero pag seryoso na’y panay kutob / But when it’s time to be serious you’re often nervous
Aandar, titigil, aarya at hihinto / You’ll move, then pause, move, then stop
Palakasan lang yan ng loob / It’s all about steeling your nerves

Puro intro, pumoporma / You’re all intros, trying to look good
Tyumetiyempo lang pala / You were just trying to find the right timing

(Chorus)

Puro intro, pumoporma / You’re all intros, trying to look good
Tyumetiyempo lang pala / You were just trying to find the right timing

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

Pumapasakalye / Being indirect
Pumapasakalye / Being indirect
