RARITY: Eyeliner/Pipikit Ako by Armi Millare

/ 3.8.10 /

I saw this short film in UP way back in college called Pirouette directed by Alina Co and Malyn Punay. I forgot what the story was all about but what I clearly remember was the song in the end credits. I've searched for it on the net and asked Armi Millare herself if she had a copy but I got none. After 5 years of searching, I finally got in touch with the director and the writer of the song Alina Co through Facebook and asked for the copy. She didnt hesitate and sent me the file so we can enjoy this poignant and emotionally driven song called Eyeliner/Pipikit Ako.

Here's the lyrics of the song

"Pipikit ako, pipikit at magpapatihulog. 
Tutuksuhin ng hangin ang tastas ng aking 
paldang lumalagpas sa gilid ng bato. 
Nais kong lumangoy sa kawalan, 
lumangoy sa kawalan. 
Pipikit ako't sisisid sa karagatan ng mga bisig mo. 
Pipikit ako't sisisid sa karagatan, sa nalalabing karapatan ko. 
Nakabukas man o sarado ... 
Pagkatapos, sasabak ang aking katawan sa kawalan. 
Bahala na kung ano ang makita pagbukas ng aking mga mata. 
Mga matang nakapikit, nagpupumilit sumilip. 
Ooooh pipikit ako't sisisid ... pipikit, sisisid ooooh."

"Pipikit ako't sisisid sa karagatan ng mga bisig mo.

Pipikit ako't sisisid sa karagatan, sa nalalabing karapatan ko."

The short film was about a crumbling marriage. Remembering it while listening to the song... made me choke on my own heartbeat. minus tears this time.

Hello to the poet :)

Hi! I really love UDD. And while surfing, I found your site. I just want to thank you for your efforts in getting hold and sharing this song. :) It's really beautifully sad and melting. It makes me want to see the film.
