JM de Guzman on Saturday turned to social media to perform for his millions of followers a song he had written while under quarantine.
The actor posted the song, “A Prayer”, which he recorded from his home, to his Instagram account with the caption: “Sinubukan ko pong magsulat ng kanta/dasal dahil ang mga nakaraang araw nahirapan akong itawid... at ihandle.”
Part of the lyrics went: “So hard to breathe / Like my heart gripped tight / Makes me want to scream, why? / It goes away when you remind me of your love / I veer away from You / When I feed my demons with hate / But you make me fly high / Makes me feel safe and loved inside.”
sinubukan ko pong magsulat ng kanta/dasal dahil ang mga nakaraang araw nahirapan akong itawid.. at ihandle. A prayer. I sit and cry like an immature grown man that searches the sky for the One who eases my pain Stay by my side I wanna runaway again from myself Lead me by signs I badly need your help. Chorus im ready to tell the world that You lifted me up from the dark..(2x) I used to cannot move a thing paralyzed by my pain and there you are.. (2x) my God and my friend verse 2 So hard to breathe like my heart gripped tight makes me want to scream why? it goes away when you remind me of your love. I veer away from You when i feed my demons with hate but you make me fly..high makes me feel safe and loved inside. Chorus then trying hard na lead. Bridge Nothing i want from you but your forgiveness and love. I have nothing really to tell you.. except ..thank you. and i love you.(3x) My God and my friend.
Under the community quarantine imposed to stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, JM has released two new singles—“Asa”, a song about unrequited love, and “Huling Liham”, a melancholic yet hopeful track written by singing couple Moira dela Torre and Jason Marvin.
Both songs are part of JM’s upcoming extended-play under Star Music, the flasgship music label of his home network ABS-CBN.
