OPM Lyrics

“Laro” – Autotelic

“Laro” / “Play”

Puso natin ay patintero* sa ulan / Our hearts are playing “patintero” in the rain
Pagsasama natin ay tagu-taguan / Our relationship is hide-and-seek
Langit ka / You are heaven
Ako naman ay nasa lupa / I’m on the ground
Lulukso / I will leap
Baka sakali abutin / Maybe [I’ll] reach [you]

REFRAIN 1:
Buntong hininga / Sigh
‘Di ba / Don’t you think so
Ang sarap makipaglaro / It feels good to play together
Laro tayo ng / Let’s play

CHORUS:
Mataya taya, mataya taya** / A game of tag, a game of tag
Pagkabilang ng tatlo / On the count of three
Takbo tayo papalayo / Let’s run away from each other
Mataya taya, mataya taya / A game of tag, a game of tag
Isa, dalawa, tatlo / One, two, three
Iiwanan mo ako / You will leave me

Ngayong ako naman ang kontrabida / Now that I’m the villain
Sa tagpuang ito / In this round of searching
Ikaw naman ang tatakbo / You will be the one to run

(Refrain 1)

(Chorus)

Dadayain (dadayain ko) / Will cheat (I will cheat)
Dadayain ko (dadayain ko) / Will cheat (I will cheat)
Kakayanin (dadayain ko) / Will endure (I will cheat)
Kakayanin (dadayain ko) / Will endure (I will cheat)

REFRAIN 2:
Buntong hininga / Sigh
‘Di ba / Don’t you think so
Ang sarap makipaglaro / It feels good to play together
Sa’yo / With you
(Repeat except last line)

(Chorus)

Oo~ / Ooh~

Dadayain ko / I will cheat
Pagkabilang ng tatlo / On the count of three
Mataya taya, mataya taya / A game of tag, a game of tag
Isa, dalawa, tatlo / One, two, three
Mataya taya, mataya taya / A game of tag, a game of tag
Iiwanan mo / You will leave [me]
Mataya taya, mataya taya / A game of tag, a game of tag
