Saranghae – Sabrina

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae

 

I

Gusto ko mang gawin

Ang pagpigil sa damdamin ay napakahirap nga naman

 

II

Pag nakakasama ka

Lalo lang aong nangangamba

Ba’t di ko masabi na

 

Refrain:

Lagi kang nasa isipan ko

At ‘wag ka sanang lalayo

 

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae

 

III

Talagang ibang-iba

Na itong aking nadarama

Sana’y ‘wag nang matapos pa

 

IV

Ngunit ‘pag nahalata

Ay wala na ‘kong magagawa

Aaminin ko na

 

Refrain:

Lagi kang nasa isipan ko

At ‘wag ka sanang lalayo

 

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae

 

Bridge:

Dahil d’yan lang sa piling mo

Nabubuhay ang puso ko

Natutong umibig

Sana ay ingatang tunay

 

At sana kung sakali man

Tayo ay mapagbigyan

Na magkatuluyan

Ako ay sa’yo lamang

 

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo mahal kita.

Lee Min Jung texts often with 2AM’s Seulong

Actress Lee Min Jung recently opened up about her surprising relationships during an appearance onKBS 2TV’s “Entertainment Relay – Guerilla Date.”

On January 1st, she revealed that she has gotten closer with 2AM’s Seulong after he chose her as his ideal woman, and even chose him as the person she sends texts to the most.  She then introducedBrown Eyed Soul’s Jung Yeob as a close friend she often goes out drinking with, impressing many with her close ties to the music industry.

When asked about whether she knew she’d become the top star she is now, she replied, “I never knew I would become a top star.  But you do have to become a ’star’ in order to film in projects you want.  My family is always careful with me, and although they have positive views, there’s a lot of concerns.”

At the mention of her sweeping various rookie awards at the year-end awards ceremony in 2010, she replied, “Actor Um Tae Woong told me, ‘You must be happy, why don’t you give me one?’”

Lee Min Jung’s segment was concluded with her New Year wish, in which she stated, “I’d like for my new projects to achieve great results and to hopefully meet my life partner.  I want to take on stronger and more depressing roles this year.  It’d be great if I could star in a movie like ‘Once.’
