Tingin Song Lyrics

Tingin by Cup of Joe


[Intro: Janine Teñoso & Gian Bernardino]
Dahan-dahan lang
Sa gitna man ng daan

[Verse 1: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino]
Mga saglit na inilikha, kakaiba ang tama
Ng sinag sa'yong kutis na kayumanggi
Oh, sa'n ba 'ko dinadala?
Bawat ngiting biglaang nabura iyong naipinta
Hiwaga ng 'yong tingin nang-aalipin
Kahit sa'n man madala

[Chorus: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino]
'Di pinapansin, ingay sa tabi
Magulong kapaligiran
Sa'yo lang ang tingin
'Di pinapansin, ika'y paiikutin
Nang dahan-dahan lang
Sa gitna man ng daan

[Verse 2: Janine Teñoso, Gian Bernardino & Raphaell Ridao]
Sa bawat sandaling ikaw ay pinagmamasdan
May dumadapong kiliti na 'di maunawaan
Walang imik, 'di mabanggit
Nasa aking isip ikaw lang ang nagmamarka
Kahit mabitin aking salita, mata'y ibinubunyag na
Sa'yo lang magpapaangkin, 'di palalampasin
'Wag ka sanang kumawala ('Di mawawala)
[Chorus: Janine Teñoso]
'Di pinapansin, ingay sa tabi
Magulong kapaligiran
Sa'yo lang ang tingin
'Di pinapansin, ako'y paiikutin
Nang dahan-dahan lang
Sa gitna man ng daan

[Interlude: Janine Teñoso]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Bridge: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino, Janine Teñoso & Gian Bernardino]
'Di man alam ang darating
Sa dulo at sa gitna ng dilim
Sa liwanag mo nakatingin
Sa'yo nakatingin, sa'yo lang ang tingin
'Di man alam ang darating
Sa dulo at sa gitna ng dilim
Sa liwanag mo nakatingin
Sa'yo nakatingin, sa'yo lang ang tingin

[Chorus: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino & Janine Teñoso, Gian Bernardino, Janine Teñoso, *All*]
'Di pinapansin, ingay sa tabi
Magulong kapaligiran
Sa'yo lang ang tingin
'Di pinapansin, ika'y paiikutin
Nang dahan-dahan lang (Dahan lang)
Sa gitna man ng daan
('Di pinapansin) 'Di pinapansin, (Ingay sa tabi) ingay sa tabi
(Magulong kapaligiran) Magulong kapaligiran
(Sa'yo lang ang tingin) Sa'yo lang ang tingin
('Di pinapansin) 'Di pinapansin, (Ika'y paiikutin) ika'y paiikutin
(Nang dahan-dahan) Nang dahan-dahan lang
*Sa gitna man ng daan*

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

[Intro: Janine Teñoso & Gian Bernardino]
Slowly, slowly
Even in the middle of the road

[Verse 1: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino]
Moments created, the impact is different
The ray on your brown skin
Oh, where are you taking me?
Every smile that was suddenly erased, you painted
The mystery of your gaze enslaves me
No matter where it takes me

[Chorus: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino]
Ignoring the noise on the side
In a chaotic environment
My eyes are only on you
Ignoring it, I'll spin you around
Slowly, slowly
Even in the middle of the road

[Verse 2: Janine Teñoso, Gian Bernardino & Raphaell Ridao]
Every moment I watch you
A tickling sensation I can't understand
Silent, unspoken
In my mind, only you are marked
Even if my words are cut short, my eyes reveal
I’ll only surrender to you, won’t let you slip away
Hope you don't disappear (Won't disappear)

[Chorus: Janine Teñoso]
Ignoring the noise on the side
In a chaotic environment
My eyes are only on you
Ignoring it, spin me around
Slowly, slowly
Even in the middle of the road

[Interlude: Janine Teñoso]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Bridge: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino, Janine Teñoso & Gian Bernardino]
Even if we don't know what's coming
At the end and in the middle of the darkness
I look at your light
I look at you, only at you
Even if we don't know what's coming
At the end and in the middle of the darkness
I look at your light
I look at you, only at you

[Chorus: Raphaell Ridao, Gian Bernardino & Janine Teñoso, Gian Bernardino, Janine Teñoso, *All*]
Ignoring the noise on the side
In a chaotic environment
My eyes are only on you
Ignoring it, I'll spin you around
Slowly, slowly (Just slowly)
Even in the middle of the road
(Ignoring) Ignoring the (Noise on the side) noise on the side
(In a chaotic environment) In a chaotic environment
(My eyes are only on you) My eyes are only on you
(Ignoring) Ignoring, (I'll spin you around) I'll spin you around
(Slowly, slowly) Slowly, slowly
*Even in the middle of the road*
