Pumulot tayo ng aral mula sa kanta ng Giniling Festival. Hindi nga. Serious! Paminsan-minsan, may katuturan din naman ang lyrics ng mga makukulit at seemingly walang kwentang mga banda hehe.
Mula sa kanta nilang, Psycho:
Mahal ko siya ngunit psycho siya.
Mahal ko siya kahit psycho siya.
Mahal ko siya dahil psycho siya.
So, I know. Tinawag niyang psycho ‘yung girl. Pero wala lang. Ang sweet. Hahaha! No, I mean, there is some discussion about whether you love a person “because” or “although”. There is a quote that says, “We like someone because. We love someone although. – Henry de Montherlant”. However, some people argue that you’re not supposed to say that you love someone despite their shortcomings, and are even supposed to love them because of it. But I do truly believe that in love, just like in most everything else (and yes that includes mathematics. haha! 2+2 does not always equal 4! hehe), there are no right or wrong answers. And as someone has said before, love is full of contradictions.
Therefore, I just found it so cute/sweet that in a song that describes the craziness of a person, it says that somebody loves her both despite and because of it. 🙂
But just so I won’t be branded as the person who called Giniling Festival (GF) cute/sweet, here’s another lyric quote from another band, which I don’t think has the same reputation as GF, Ang Bandang Shirley.
From their song, Sa Madaling Salita:
Ikaw ang puso ko, dahil sa’yo, dumadaloy ang dugo.
Ikaw ang puso ko, dahil sa’yo, dumadanak ang dugo.
At sa saliw ng isa’t-isa, tayong dalawa’y dakila.
At sa saliw ng isa’t-isa, tayong dalawa’y alila.
