Anak

Freddie Aguilar

When you were born into this world 
Your mom and dad saw a dream fulfilled
Dream come true
The answer to their prayers

You were to them a special child 
Gave 'em joy every time you smiled
Each time you cried
They're at your side to care

Child, you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give 
To see you through and God it's true 
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you here

How many seasons came and went
So many years have now been spent 
For time ran fast
And now at last you're strong

Now what has gotten over you
You seem to hate your parents too
Do speak out your mind
Why do you find them wrong

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you near

And now your path has gone astray 
Child you ain't sure what to do or say 
You're so alone
No friends are on your side

And child you now break down in tears
Let them drive away your fears
Where must you go
Their arms stay open wide

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go 
To give you all their love can give
To see you through 
And God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you here

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go 
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you here

       Original Tagalog Lyrics 
******************************************

Nu'ng isilang ka sa mundong ito
Laking tuwa ng magulang mo
At ang kamay nila, ang iyong ilaw
At ang nanay at tatay mo'y
'Di malaman ang gagawin
Minamasdan pati pagtulog mo.

At sa gabi'y napupuyat ang iyong nanay
Sa pagtimpla ng gatas mo
At sa umaga nama'y kalong ka ng iyong amang
Tuwang-tuwa sa iyo.

Ngayon ng malaki ka na
Nais mo'y maging malaya
'Di man sila payag walang magagawa
Ikaw nga ay biglang nagbago
Naging matigas ang iyong ulo
At ang payo nila'y sinuway mo.

Di mo man lang inisip na
Ang kanilang ginagawa'y para sa iyo
'Pagkat ang nais mo'y masunod ang layaw mo
"Di mo sila pinapansin.

Nagdaan pa ang mga araw
At ang landas mo'y naligaw
Ikaw ay nalulong sa masamang bisyo
At ang una mong nilapitan
Ang iyong inang lumuluha
At ang tanong "Anak, ba't ka nagkaganyan?"

Pagsisisi at sa isip mo'y nalaman mong
Ikaw'y nagkamali.
Pagsisisi at sa isip mo'y nalaman mong
Ikaw'y nagkamali.

            Translation
********************************************

When you were born into this world 
How joyful your parents were 
And their hands were your light 
And your mother and father didn't know what to do 

They watched you even in your sleep 
And in the evening your mother stay up late 
To prepare your milk 
And in the morning your father places you in his lap 
And he is so happy because of you 

Now that you've grown up 
You want to be free 
Even if they don't agree with you 
They can't stop you. 

You have suddenly changed 
You've become more stubborn 
And you went against their advice 
You didn't enven think that 
What they were doing was only for you 

Because you wanted to follow your whims 
So many days have passed 
And you went astry 
And you succumbed to evil things 

And the first person that you went back to 
Was your mother who was crying 
And she asked you "My son, why have you become like this?" 
And tears roll down your cheeks 
Without you noticing it. 

Remorse on your mind when you found out 
That you have been wrong
