SITTING IN THE AIRPORT BAR, TRYING TO LOOK LIKE A SUPERSTAR

one way sunday – kanta ng isang musikero while on tour… sa isang banda, parang ako: biyahero at engineer na musikerong patago. in short, OFW na mahilig sa karaoke!

palagi ko itong pinatutugtog sa CD player ko. ewan ko kung bakit pero, para sa akin ang haunting na lyrics at musika nina mark-almond ay bagay na bagay sa tulad kong OFW na malayo sa pilpinas. actually wala namang connection ang musika nila sa pagiging OFW ko pero naantig ang puso ko tuwing papatugtugin ko ang CD nila. ang dating sa akin ay bitter-sweet na mga ala-ala.

mahirap nang makita ang greatest hits nila pero kung may makita kayo sa mga record bar o kung available ito on-line, bilhin nyo na agad. ang alam ko eh rhino records ang nag-release nito. highly recommended ang Mark-Almond sa mga nagsesenti… excerpts from the song, here goes:

one way sunday
mark-almond

Here in the morning light I stand
With a suitcase and a guitar in my hand.
One way Sunday
Sitting in the airport bar
And trying to look like a superstar
Waiting for the plane to take me far away

Still she finds a reason to stay (still she finds a way)
Still she finds a reason to see
What I have today…

Maybe when my travelling days are through
I’ll come on back and stay at home with you
All my Sundays
Sleeping in the early sun
Playing my guitar to no one
Making up to you all the things I’ve never done

Will you find a reason to stay (Will you find a way)
Will you find a reason to see
What I have today

  1. narinig ko to sa RJ radio (100.3 FM sa Pinas)ngayong umaga. first time ko marining pero natuwa ako. sinearch ko agad sa internet yung lyrics, at dalawang link lang ang lumabas.isa itong site mo.

    sana marami pang puso ang marating nitong awitin ni marc almond.

  2. GOOD MORNING YANG. great stuff isn’t it… mark almond is one of our family’s favorite group. we’ve been listening to them since the 70’s when they were still active.

    i don’t know where you can get it, but amazon.com would be my best bet. the greatest hits CD contains “one way sunday” plus all their other great songs. i got mine in 1991 and i recorded it in my iPod and still play it almost everyday when i go out on my bike.

    take care man.
    jay
