Love can be expressed in a myriad of ways. Aside from grand surprises, it can also be done through the little things—like serenading or simply sharing a love song that reminds you of them or your relationship.
We're not just talking about hit, catchy love songs from international artists. In the local music scene alone, there are a lot of heart-fluttering tracks that could easily bring kilig to your significant other this Valentine's Day. Here are some of them.
At habang ika'y yinayakap nang maigiBinubulong ang dalanging huwag sana maglaho sa hanginAng bawat piyesa na bumubuo sa 'yoBawat piyesang nawa'y mapasaakin habang-buhay
Bawat Piyesa is one of the hit tracks from Munimuni’s 2019 album Kulayan Natin. You can use this song to show how much you love every part of your special someone and make them feel seen and appreciated.
I don't think that you even realizeThe joy you make me feel when I'm inside your universeYou hold me like I'm the one who's preciousI hate to break it to you, but it's just the other way aroundYou can thank your stars all you wantBut I'll always be the lucky one
Released in 2008, Rico Blanco’s timeless song Your Universe still gives major feels to this day. Other than the kilig, love is also about commitment to being a part of your partner's life and its in-betweens no matter what. This four-minute song conveys the magical feeling of being with the person who makes you experience a love that’s simple and warm.
Hanggang dito na lamang ang 'yong mga luhaTama na, tahan naHihilumin ang iyong mga sugatPighati'y wakas na
Also by Munimuni, Tahanan puts the spotlight on love as a source of comfort. This OPM song talks about being willing to serve as a “home” to someone, especially when everything else becomes overwhelming.
Lalim sa 'king bawat paghingaNakatitig lamang sa iyoNaglakad ka ng dahan-dahanSa pasilyo tungo sa altar ng simbahan
Being committed to a relationship is not all sunshine and rainbows, but reaching the point of marriage is a milestone that’s worth celebrating. Pasilyo paints a love that’s long been prayed for and finally marks it for a lifetime with rings and vows.
Ikaw at Ako
Kung minsan ay di ko nababanggit
Pag-ibig ko'y 'di masukat
Ng anumang lambing
At kung magkamali akong ika'y saktan
Puso mo ba'y handang magpatawad
Johnoy Danao’s Ikaw at Ako talks about love that’s genuine. If you want to dedicate a song to the person you love the most in the most direct way possible, this is it. It’s like an internal monologue of a lover who opens up about their certainty with their loved one in the future and pledging their commitment for better or for worse.
My bones are safe, and my heart can rest
Knowing it belongs to you
Nothing beats the feeling of being secure with the right person. Reese Lansangan’s Home tells a love that’s been longed for and finally having someone by your side as you continue on with your journey.
Maligaw man at mawala
At umikot man sa kawalan
Dahil sa bawat kailan, sino't saan
Ikaw lamang ang kasagutan
Ebe Dancel’s Bawat Daan is undeniably one of the best love songs ever written. It's such an incredible feeling to be able to find your safe haven amid the complexities of life. This is the kind of love that you would not want to let go of, ever.
