I send you my kiss through the post
Hope it gets there to give you cheer
Quite tough being on coast to coast
I send you my kiss through the post
When we meet we will have a toast
And we just have to persevere
I send you my kiss through the post
Hope it gets there to give you cheer

sad I become when I think loud
love me now before it’s a game
when it’s over it’s not the same
my world will be covered by clouds

study shows
some don’t last long
misunderstanding
other factors
sad but true
love me now

won’t be part of statistics
try our best to be together
if we could just stay as we were
see the world and swim in the creeks

kisses in the park
hand in hand
by the moonlight
life is wonderful
and sweet
with you

hindi kita makakalimutan
hanggang sa huling hininga ko*
(I won’t forget you
until my last breath)
