I started writing this song way back in 2007 during my senior year in law school, right before the bar exams. Got to finish it in 2008 when I was already a lawyer, playing the part, in a big law firm. It was a time when I found myself at a crossroads. Should I pursue a law career or just go with my gut and be a musician?

Conventional wisdom would suggest that I go the safe route. "Be a lawyer. Times are hard and you're lucky enough to have a job that pays well." That's what the old folks say.

They have a point. Only, I believe that life must be spent doing something that makes you come alive. I believe that there's more to this than just breathing, eating, and accumulating. That's not what life is for me. I mean, back then, I was in a real soul killer. And I wouldn't want that for myself or for anyone else, actually.

This is a song about that moment before taking the huge step, about
choosing life, about leaving everything behind to follow your heart and fulfill your
passion.

HALINA

Halina't sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Ilang daang buwan na ba ang pinalipas mo?
Naghahanda ba o tuluyan ka nang sumusuko
Papayag ba na malimutan na ang alab ng puso
Akala mo may bukas pa
Oras ay tumatakbo, Papalayo sa iyo

Saglit lang ang buhay
Saglit lang

Halina't sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Heto na, wala nang ibang panahon
Ang pagkakataon ay laging nasa ngayon
Limutin mo na ang lahat
Nandito na ang sa iyo

Minsan lang ang buhay
Minsan lang

Halina't sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Halina't sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ang mga luha natin ay nagniningning mga bituin
