OPM Lyrics

“Pilipinas” – Quest

“Pilipinas” / “Philippines”

Meron akong pangarap / I have a dream
Alam ko ikaw din / I know you do too
Matagal ko nang hinahanap / I’ve long been searching for it
Liwanag sa dilim / Light in the darkness
Mailap ang tadhanang inaasam natin / The destiny we’re wishing for is elusive
Pero patuloy pa rin ang paglaban / But the fight continues
Patungo sa kapayapaan / Towards peace

Pagkakaisa / Unity
Tugma kahit may pagkakaiba / Harmony even amongst differences
‘Di lang pera ang yaman / Money isn’t the only wealth
Pati pag-ibig sa’ting bayan / Even love for our country
Pag-asa ay sagana / Hope is abundance
Pagka’t ay sa pangarap lahat may gana / Because in hope, everyone has a gain
Panahon na para lahat ng ito ay tuparin / It’s time that we achieve all of this
Dahil ang Pilipinas ko ay Pilipinas mo rin / Because my Philippines is also your Philippines

CHORUS:
Bayan ko, bayan mo / My country, your country
Walang iwanan / No getting left behind
Pilipinas natin ‘to / It’s our Philippines
Alam kong kaya mo, kaya ko / I know you can do it, I can do it
Bayanihan*, ipakita natin ‘to / Bayanihan*, let’s show it
Dahil ang bayan ko ay bayan mo / Because my country is your country
Walang iwanan / No getting left behind
Pilipinas natin ‘to / It’s our Philippines
Hindi ka na mag-iisa / You’ll no longer be alone
Tara, magsama-sama / Let’s go, altogether

Pilipinas sama-sama / Philippines, altogether
Sama-sama / Altogether

Wala nang lokohan / No more cheating
Tama na sisihan / Let’s stop the blame
‘Wag kang patay malisya / Don’t be malicious
Magkaintindihan / Let’s understand each other
Bawas reklamo, dagdagan ang aksyon / Less complaining, more action
‘Pag lahat tayo sama-sama na / When we’re all together
Makalakas noon / That’s powerful
Manatili lang sa tama / Let’s stay on the right path
Maliko man ang daan / Even if we’re strayed from the road
Ipagpatuloy ang liwanag / Continue the light
Gaano man kadilim yan / Regardless of how dark it is
Di ka na mag-iisa / You’ll no longer be alone
Kami makii-isa / We’ll join you
Di na pwede ang “pwede na” / “It’s good enough” is no longer enough
Panibagong simula / A brand new beginning
Para sa lahat, walang eksklusibo / For everyone, no exclusion
Kaunlaran sa lahat ng Pilipino / Progress of every Filipino
Angat ang andas / Let’s lift ourselves
Ituwid ang landas / Let’s straighten our path
Abutin ang inaasam hangga’t sa lumampas / Reach for our ambitions until we surpass them
Tayo’y mga bahaghari pagkatapos ng bagyo / We are the rainbow after a storm
Gaano man kahirap man natiling nakatayo / No matter how we struggle, we still stand
At muling pakinangin ang tatlong bituin / And let’s make our three stars shine once more
At yung liwanag ng araw muling pasilapin / And the light of the sun, let it break through again

(Chorus)

Para sa bagong simula / For a new beginning
Tara, magsama-sama / Let’s go, altogether

Hindi na pwedeng mag-isa / Being alone is no longer allowed
Pilipinas sama-sama / Philippines, altogether

*Bayanihan is a term for the collective effort of a group of people, usually those of the same village, or in this case, the same country
