ALWAYS – ATLANTIC STARR (Bagobo Version) by Nacky


The song is originally sung by Atlantic Starr and I translated it into my dialect. Each of the lyrics you hear and read here are there because they are special to me. This is my favorite song to listen to before going to sleep at night along with ‘’RIGHT HERE WAITING’’ by Richard Marx and ”This I Promise You” by Nsync. They’re just an AWESOME uplifting songs and it brings back memories. Translating songs into my native tongue can be a powerful way to present an idea or an emotion of a real bagoba. To my kataladz out there, Unleash the bagobo in YOU!
