Ikaw Lamang by Silent Sanctuary (Video + Lyrics)

This video feature has been long overdue by a month. Every since I bought their CD three weeks since, Silent Sanctuary’s songs have been competing with Callalily’s and Eraserheads’ for playtime in my mp3 player.

Yes, this LSS has been with me since I first listened their single “Ikaw Lamang” more than a month ago on the radio. Most people I know found it a bit hesitant to like or even listen to Silent Sanctuary’s songs mainly because of the violin. Pinoys aren’t just fans of classical instruments. They often think of bands that combine the electric guitar and drums with the violin or cello as weird or “baduy.”

Silent Sanctuary’s continuing rise to popularity in the airwaves and hit charts today prove that times do change along with listeners’ preferences. I must say that if you’re not much of a violin fan, you probably got hooked to their music because of the simple yet powerful lyrics that reminds us of Parokya ni Edgar, Sugarfree and the legendary Eraserheads – words that are street-smart, honest, “makulit”, driven by experiences that either broke, pinch or causes the heart to burst because of love and relationships.

All this can be found in their hit single “Ikaw Lamang.” Below is the video (courtesy of makoy00) of and lyrics which I painstakingly typed from their album booklet. Enjoy!

Ikaw Lamang by Silent Sanctuary

Di ko maintindihan
Ang nilalaman ng puso
Tuwing magkahawak ang ating kamay
Pinapanalangin lagi tayong magkasama
Hinihiling bawat oras kapiling ka

Sa lahat ng aking ginagawa
Ikaw lamang ang nasa isip ko sinta
Sana’y di na tayo magkahiwalay
Kahit kailan pa man

Ikaw lamang ang aking minamahal
Ikaw lamang ang tangi kong inaasam
Makapiling ka habang buhay
Ikaw lamang sinta
Wala na kong hihingin pa
Wala na

Ayoko ng maulit pa
Ang nakaraang ayokong maalala
Bawat oras na wala ka
Parang mabigat na parusa

Huwag mong kakalimutan na kahit nag-iba
Hindi ako tumigil magmahal sayo sinta

Sa lahat ng aking ginagawa
Ikaw lamang ang nasa isip ko sinta

Sana’y di na tayo magkahiwalay
Kahit kailan pa man

Ikaw lamang ang aking minamahal
Ikaw lamang ang tangi kong inaasam
Makapiling ka habang buhay
Ikaw lamang sinta
Wala na kong hihingin pa
Wala na

Lastly, the girl (or woman?) reminds me a lot of my Biology 2 professor. hehehe

  5. Ikaw Lamang is a pretty jewel in itself. My friend, RJ Jacinto's first cousin simply adores the song. I won't deny I have a certain liking for it. The violin parts are tremendous!
