    Little things such as this reaffirm my belief that Alphonse is smarter than most people.

    Wow, I never really took the time to notice the lyrics of this song before (I know, totally out of character for me), but they are indeed poignant and extremely meaningful.
    * I hate to say it, but I think the reason I didn’t really try to understand the lyrics before is because I was so distracted by Toni Gonzaga’s not-that-nice voice… I’m so mean! Don’t tell Alphonse na lang, haha 🙂

    that is so sweet.
    and incredible.
    how a song, like poetry, can touch individuals and have meaning in a very special way.

    i don’t know the song, so i looked it up in youtube. listening to it in alphonse’s voice gave a new and deeper meaning to the song. very touching.

    Thanks for reposting the lyrics. As i was reading the first part of the post, I was trying to re-call the song. Buti na lang you re-posted it.

    We can learn from Alphonse, maybe we can use songs to say the things that we can’t actually say. It’s even better because they it will be music to our ears;)

    Btw, you might want to join TBR 22. Topic is very light and timely. THE GIFT

    You know sis, my brother Allan likes that song as well. 🙂 I think he remembers the movie “Mac & Me” and the original version of that song as well (didnt know Toni revived it na pala). 😉
    What i’ve noticed with my bro’s song choices, sometimes talaga he uses it as a tool for expressing himself. Like when he’s happy, he keeps singing “I’m walking on Sunshine”, when mom makes him eat gulay, he sings “I’m Popeye the sailorman”, while swallowing the veggie whole (so as not to taste it!). lol 😀
    We’ve given him our spare dvd player and he usually listens to music rather than watch old sesame street shows. And he particularly likes the music he heard while he was a baby pa since that’s what he keeps hearing from our Dad & other relatives we visit. 😉

    Wonderful lyrics and it seems to reach out to one and asks for not just a hug but understanding 🙂

    Alphonse sure knows how to choose great songs.
