"THE YOLANDA SONG" by Jograd dela Torre

November 26, 2013

This is really one powerful, heartfelt song. Here's a short backgrounder about the song and Jograd.

It was a real labour of love between ourselves and activist singer/comedian Jograd dela Torre, who shows his serious side in an impassioned manner that will surely resonate with the millions of Filipinos who have had enough with the status quo and are bent on positive change. It was filmed in just half a day outside of an abandoned, half burnt down building on the outskirts of Makati, which was made to look like it was in the heart of Tacloban.

#YolandaSong -- this tribute video for the super typhoon victims in the Philippines is extremely touching and INSPIRING. Jograd dela Torre is speaking for all of us through this song. "Bumagon ka!"

Sa mga kababayang nasalanta ng bagyo - Kadamay nyo kami sa hirap na dinanas nyo. Nawa'y magsilbing babala ang trahedyang ito.


LOVE THE PHILIPPINES. HATE CORRUPTION.

Any and all proceeds will go to the aid of those effected by Typhoon Haiyan (in Tacloban, Samar Province, Palawan and beyond). The worst may be over but there's still hundreds of thousands of innocent and helpless people across the Philippines in dire need of aid. Please give whatever you can. No amount is too small - donate today!

THE YOLANDA SONG

Nagdurugo ngaun ang puso ko
Sa trahedyang nangyari sa bayan ko
Oh kay bagsik, ang lupit ng hagupit
Mga pagsubok na tila walang patid.

Nagdurusa ngaun ang bayan ko
Tao'y hirap, di alam san patungo
Pinagnakawan ng mga pulitiko
Nilumpo ng giera, ng lindol pa at bagyo. "Bridge"
Ngunit kahit
Gaano ito kapait

Dilubyong dumating
Dapat lang harapin

Ngunit kahit
Gaano ito kalupit
Dapat labanan

"Chorus"
Umahon ka kaibigan ko
Umahon ka't h'wag susuko
Hanggat ikaw may buhay pa
Tuloy tuloy ka! Umahon ka! Bumagon ka

Nanlulumo ako ngaun oh Diyos ko
Sa dinaranas ng mga kababayan ko
Bilyon bilyon na po ang donation
pero hanggang ngayon sila po ay gutom.

Umahon ka kaibigan ko
Umahon ka't h'wag susuko
Hanggat ikaw may buhay pa
Tuloy tuloy ka! Umahon ka! Bumagon ka

Nagdurugo ngaun ang puso ko
Sa trahedyang nangyari ngaun sa bayan ko Sana may bukas pang naghihintay

Sa tulad nilang parang patay na buhay

Umahon ka kaibigan ko
Umahon ka't h'wag susuko
Hanggat ikaw may buhay pa
Tuloy tuloy ka! Bumangon ka

Umahon ka kaibigan ko
Umahon ka't h'wag susuko
Hanggat ikaw may buhay pa
Tuloy tuloy ka! ........



THE YOLANDA SONG

My heart is bleeding
Because of the tragedy that befell my nation
Oh how fierce, how painful the attacks
The trials that seem never ending

My nation is heavily laden
People are suffering, they don't know where to turn to
Robbed by politicians
Crippled by war, earthquake, and storm "Bridge"
Even though
How bitter
The deluge that came
We have to face it
Even though
How painful it is
We have to fight it

"Chorus"
Rise up my friend
Rise up and do not surrender
As long as you are alive
Continue fighting. Rise up

I am very sad My Lord
Because of what is happening to my countrymen
Billions of billions donated
Still they are hungry and suffering

Rise up my friend
Rise up and do not surrender
As long as you are alive
Continue fighting. Rise up

My heart is bleeding
Because of the tragedy that befell my nation
Hopefully there will be a tomorrow that awaits
For those who are like live corpses

Rise up my friend
Rise up and do not surrender
As long as you are alive
Continue fighting. Rise up

Rise up my friend
Rise up and do not surrender
As long as you are alive
Continue fighting...

 Mwah!

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
