Iba't Ibang Klase ng Babae!





1. Pa-conyo- sila yung super vain na kala mo everyday is “foundation day.” Magaling mag-ingles, hindi umiinom ng house water sa fastfood at kung magbihis e kala mo parating may party. Sila rin yung aakitin ka, pero hindi bibigay….agad. Kailangan ng matinding humor kung talagang trip na trip mo sya iuwi.

2. Top-of-the-line sosyalera- Sila yung mga pinanganak na may gintong kutsara sa bibig. Lumaki sa aircon, straight English kung magsalita pero mahilig din silang magmarunong na magaling silang mag-Tagalog pero ang sama talaga pakinggan. Di nakakarelate sa mga kanto jokes, nagtatawanan na ang mga tao di pa din nila nagegets yung joke. Lumaki raw sila sa kalye playing street games. Pero alam nyo kung ano yun? Street hockey, soccer, baseball, etc. Pffft! Batang kalye nga. Mahirap abutin. Pero kung masusungkit, pwede rin!

3. Feeling or Illusionaries- mga mahilig mag-ilusyon na magaganda sila at may sinasabi sa buhay. Pinsan si ganito, kilala si ganyan, may lupain sa hibok-hibok para ma-impress lang ang kausap. Sila ata ang tinutukoy ng Parokya sa kanta nilang, “Silvertoes.” Madaling kausap at minsan, isang sabi lang, gora na yan… walang paliguy-ligoy pa. 10/11 ang drama, sa sampung sinabi labing-isa mali. Dagdag-bawas magkwento kaya ingat lang lalo na kung kiss and tell sila.

4. One-of-the-boys. Sila yung “ideal bestfriend.” Cowboy ba… Pwedeng biru-biruin, masarap kasama sa inuman, naiintindihan ang kalokohan at kaberdehan ng kalalakihan, madalas gumamit ng “tsong” at “pare” pag kausap mo. Pero sila rin yung hindi nagsasalita sa totoong nararamdaman nila. Ingat din ang mga boys sa mga ganitong girls- lalo na pag nahuhulog na pala sa inyo. Kawawa sila pag nasaktan. Hmmmm…

5. Girlfriend-material. Sila yung sa unang tingin pa lang ng boys, abot-langit na ang respeto. Sila yung mga simpleng babaeng matipid ngumiti, makikipag-kwentuhan pero hindi may mystique pa rin. Na-c-curious ang mga lalaki kung anong meron sa kanila that they keep on looking for more of that person. Minsan ang hirap kausap dahil pabago bago ng isip. Usually, sila ang naliligawan, sinusuyo hanggang mapa-oooohh… OO.

6. Man-hater. Sa una, mapagkakamalan mo silang tibo dahil sobra silang “boyish.” Defense mechanism nila yun dahil galit sila sa past experience nila with an EX. Takot na daw sila masaktan. Mahirap din silang getlakin dahil matatakot ka sa kasungitan nila. Ang hindi mo alam, kulit lang ang katapat. Bibigay din yan. Pero syempre, sa mga lalaki, dapat armed ka with sympathy, timing and humor. Kahit hindi ka masyadong pogi, basta meron ka nito- malaki na ang chance mo.

7. Pa-Girl. OA sa pagka girl, mayat-maya ang retouch inaabot ng 30mins sa CR kahit nasa mall kayo suklay ng suklay ng buhok, mayat maya nananalamin. Super freak-out sa kaarteyhan. Malakas mag react ng “yuck!! Or eewwww” kapag nakakarinig ng mga maseselang usapin. Di nila gets o maapreciate ang ibang mga bagay bagay. Di mo alam kung makitid lang talaga utak nila o talagang slow sila makagets.. Basta ang hirap nila ispelengin!!! Ang masama eh kung 30 yrs old na pagirl pa din… awts!

8. Super Friendly. By the word itself, friendly siya sa lahat. Napakabait, Napakadaling i-aproach napakalawak ng pang-unawa on things. Masarap hingan ng payo. Pero minsan namimisinterpret ng iba. Aakalain ng guy na may gusto sa kanya si super friendly. Lalo na sa pagmimisinterpret sa kanila ng girls dahil pinagchichismisan sya ng masama, siguro kinaiinggitan kasi. Ang hirap din minsan ng masyadong mabait.

9. Doble-Kara. Eto yung matino or mataray pag normal, pero pag nakainom eh bigla na lang sasayaw sa ibabaw ng mesa, or iiyak ng walang malinaw na dahilan, or magiging robot na hindi na alam ang nangyayari, gumagalaw lang pero di nagrerespond sa kapwa, meron ding biglang nang aaway pa. Nakakatakot sila painumin kasi nakakahiya sila kasama pag nalasing.

10. Ms. Know-it-All.Gusto nilang i-impress ang lahat ng tao- especially ang mga kalalakihan, thinking na ma-g-getsung nila ito. They think na mas matalino sila sa guy at kaya nila itong paikutin. Pero wag ka. A good guy can recognize a smart girl. Boys, ingat sa mga tulad nila dahil yung pagka-Know-it-all ay pwedeng mauwi sa paninira sa ibang tao at mga buhol-buhol na kasinungalingan.

11. Problematic. Sila yung mga girls na kala mo kailangan lagi ng karamay o mag-aalaga sa kanila. Pa-emo minsan.. Hanap lagi yung instant Knight-in-Shining-Armour. Dapat mag-ingat ang mga girls na ganito dahil pag problemado sila, mas madaling nakaka-score ang mga kalalakihan lalo na yung magagaling mambola.

12. Babaeng-Bakla. Isa sa pinakagusto kong personality ng babae. Tipong laughtrip lagi pag kasama mo.. Hindi maarte, bulgar kung bulgar magsalita pero nasa timing. Punong puno ng humor. At minsan kung pikon ka maiinis ka sa pang-ookray niya pero ok lang yun lambing lang niya iyon.

13. Silent but deadly. Maria Clara ang datingan, Di sila masyadong palakibo, or masalita. Kung magsasalita man eh parang sila lang nakakarinig sa sinasabi nila. Pero wag matahin… Nasa loob ang kulo nila. Talagang mabibigla ka sa matutuklasan mong ibang side ng girl na ito….

14. Camwhore. Wala naman kinalaman to about sa pagkarir, share ko lang.. Sila yung kahit saan mapunta eh magpipicture ng sarili niya maya’t maya. Kahit di na sa kanya yung celfone puro mukha na nia ang laman. Iba-ibang anggulo pa pero magulo naman karamihan ng kuha. Pipiliting iphotoshop pero lalo lang sumasama. Tapos yung karamihang kuha naman eh nakaside lang yung mukha. Nakakapeke kasi ang ganung posing, nakakapagpaganda. Tapos di pa makukuntento may mga kuha ding nasa taas yung cam and nakaside pa din. Kasi nakakapayat yun, diba? Uuuyyy gagawin na nila yan lagi hehehe.. Daming picture sa fs, fb or multiply na puro mukha lang naman… na naka-side.

15. Flexible. Eto yung girl na akala mo sa unang tingin, di mo mareach mukhang snobbish, and maselan, pero pag nakuha mo ang loob at nakilala mo ng husto eh di pala maarte co-boy din sya na hindi one of d boys. Kahit saan nakakarating mula Rockwell hanggang Divisoria. Walang arte, Kakain kahit saan mapa Fridays or fishbolls sa kalsada. Ang sarap magkaroon ng girlfriend na tulad nila.

16. Flirt. In tagalog, Malandi, Syota ng bayan…. game! Kadalasang sila yung mga liberated, bombshell na talagang pansinin manamit, magsalita, at kumilos. Madaling pumatol lalo na kung gwapo or mayaman.

Feeling of Fulfillment





It was early September when me and Joey went back to Cebu together with Zhe (a recruit for review at CBRC). When we arrived at Tabunok Gaisano, my GPs fetched us. We then ate at Jollibee after that we went home at my GPs house at Talisay City (one of the city in Cebu). After we fixed our baggage there, then went to Metro Cebu to look for a dormitory where it would be easier for us to transport to our review center. Finally we've found a good dormitory infront of Cebu bus station then reserve a room there. Then we went to CBRC's office at Fuente to enroll for the December's review, after we're done we went back home at my GPs house to get our baggage so that we could transfer to our dormitory and my GPs drove us to our dormitory and we checked in.


The next day, we went to the PRC to file for the board for December 2010. We arrived there at 7am and the line was too long cos' a lot of newly RNs are also there filing for their license. After a long hour of waiting, with all the sweats and standing moments, our papers were approved and we're so happy thinking that we're on our way to take the board...


What a wonderful feeling it was, fulfilling something on your own effort.. and thanking God for that day and we went home with a wide smile on our faces.


In everything he did he had great success, because the Lord was with him. - 1 Samuel 18:14

NLE Results December 2010: Is There Still Reason to Be Hopeful?


Getting an education here in our country is a pride that most parents believe in. It is the highlight for most people’s lives and not being able to get one is tantamount to being a failure or being unsuccessful in life. That is why many people strive hard to attain a college degree as this does not only become a source of pride for them, it can also be a guarantee that they could get a decent paying job in the future.
In the country, there are some professions that become in trend for a certain period of time. These professions become so in demand that almost all of the enrolling students in college often prefer to take courses that are related to these kinds of jobs. Such has happened to the nursing degree. It was so in demand for a certain period of time that almost everybody who was planning to proceed to college only had one degree in mind and that was nursing. Yet, for those who have been fortunate enough to pass the NLE board exam results December 2010, and all the other Nursing board exams in the previous years, things may not be as bright as what they had expected when they first decided to take up nursing.
It was already quite evident yet people were not paying much attention. Added to this, a lot of people were saying that the demand for nurses abroad will still continue for years to come. That is why no particular actions were taken in order to help assess if those who were already taking up the said degree would have guaranteed jobs when they graduate, whether in the local or international scope.
The problem, though, is that the number of both registered and unregistered nurses that are unemployed is continuously rising, especially now with the Nursing Board exam results December 2010 more nurses will be added to the list of those who are in the brink of desperation to look for employment. In fact, the competition is so stiff that these nursing graduates often land in jobs that are far from what they have been trained in their education with salaries that do not come close to what their parents have spent for their nursing degree. Added to this, there are even those who had to pay hospitals and medical establishments just so they could be allowed to work.
Such will be the fate of those passers and non-passers of the NLE Results December 2010 and all the other Nursing board exams in the previous years. It is such a sad thing to happen for a profession that should get so much respect and admiration.

MAY YOU ALWAYS FEEL LOVED



May you find serenity and tranquility in a world
You may not always understand.

May the pain you have known and conflict you have experienced
Give you the strength to walk through life
Facing each new situation with courage and optimism.

Always know that there are those whose love and understanding
Will always be there, even when you feel most alone.

May you discover enough goodness in others
To believe in a world of peace.

May a kind word, a reassuring touch, a warm smile be yours
Every day of your life,
And may you give these gifts as well as receive them.

Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.

Teach love to those who know hate,
And let that love embrace you as you go into the world.

May the teaching of those you admire become part of you,
So that you may call upon them.
Remember, those whose lives you have touched
And who have touched yours are always a part of you,
Even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter that is more important than it's form.

May you not become too concerned with material matters,
But instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart.

Find time in each day to see the beauty and love in the world around you.

Realize that each person has limitless abilities,
But each of us is different in our own way.
What you may feel you lack in one regard
May be more than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present
May become one of your strengths in the future.

May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility.
Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.

May you find enough inner strength to determine your own worth by yourself,
And not be dependent on another’s judgment of your accomplishments.

May you always feel loved. 

This is from Martha, a friend of mine, she's the one who wrote this poem for me. She send it over my email and I just read it today... Thank you so much for this wonderful writing... Takecare always..Godspeed...

My Special Treat!







Every 20th of September, I always plan something special for Joey. Last 2009, I planned an outing on his birthday, we went swimming with our baby and we had so much fun together.
Last 2010, I planned a surprise party for him the moment we're in Cebu filing for my board exam. Together with our new found friend (Zhe), we had dinner at Shakey's and I surprised him with a cake from Red Ribbon which is our favorite (chocolate cake). I requested a crew from Red Ribbon to deliver it to our table and he was surprised and very happy about it!.. 
Not only that, the crews of Shakey's prepared a birthday presentation for him and gave him a free sundae after. Though I forget to bring a match for his candles, we decided to continue it over at Rizwood (dorm of Zhe). And there he makes his wish and blow his candles.
This September 20, 2011, I need some help from you guys... 
Please give some advise you think will be a great gift for my hunny's birthday.. 
Hoping for response sooner.. valid before the end of August 2011.

Thanks in advance!

Being a Winner


Perhaps the worst thing about being at school is being called a LOSER.
But to me, losers are only those who give up on their dreams
Imagine what would have happened if these losers just gave up without trying?

He got out from his high school baskeatball team,
That loser is Michael Jordan.

His first children's book was rejected by 23 publlishers,
That loser was Dr. Seuss.

He forgot to put a reverse gear in his first car,
That loser was Henry Ford.

And this loser flunked the college entrance exam on his first try,
His name is Albert Einstein!

See, no one usually gets it right the first time.
A loser is one who fails and simply gets off the tract.
Real winners are those who may fail flat on their face right there on the tract
But pick themselves up and dash all the way to the finish line.

You and me...
winners both, if we get high on the speed of life.

God Wants You to Know

The great advantage of having nothing is that everything becomes a gain...
Losing everything is at the same time the scariest, as well as the most liberating experience I can have. When I have something, - anything, I've got to protect it from disappearing. And so worry becomes a resident in my heart. When I've got nothing, my heart overflows with gratitude for every offering I receive...
What a wonderful message from God...

Most - The Bridge


This is one of the videos shown to us way back my review days at Carl Balita Review Center during our final coaching. And I would like to share to to everyone because I know it will also touch your heart...Hope you'll enjoy watching this!!!


I'll share my experience with you while watching this video...


It was during our break time when our review assistant show us this video. As it begins to play and flashes to the screen... I can't believe myself in tears...I admit I am very sensitive and emotional especially if I saw or read something that is very sad. Maybe it's because of the experiences I have in life that makes me a cry baby...but it depends if it really strikes me...and it did...even after the video is done, I'm still in tears...


It talks about a passage from the Bible John 3:16 "for God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son"... and while watching the video the memories I've had with my late sister flashed back on my memory...

I remember the sacrifice my parents did after the tragic moment that had happened in our family. It was when my dear sister died because of drowning at a beach resort in our place while we are having our family reunion. I can't forget that 2nd day of November 2003, around 1:30 pm...when my cousin came running and crying back to our cottage telling us about the drowning thing. They were 8 of them, 3 of my siblings and 5 of my cousins were drowned. And alas, it was my sister who wasn't able to survive. She was at her 1st year high when that happened and I was at my 4th year in high school. She was a very smart girl, a very talented and genius one, and also pretty, when you get to meet her, you'll say that she's almost perfect, but no one is, and maybe that's why God take her from us at a very young age of 13. She won the 1st place in the Talumpati and our school decided to send her to the ANOPSAI, a gathering of different private schools which each participants must compete with each other and aim for the 1st place in the overall competition. But
she wasn't able to reach that date because of what happened. And for me, I was very depressed at those times and I was questioning God "why her?" with all the other bad people around, why my sister, and I really don't understand His plans, and the next moment I was thinking of myself becoming a nurse. I've realized maybe that was God's way of sending His message for me, for my calling to be a nurse. The moment when my sister was drowned there was a nurse nearby who hesitated to help us, and that made me realized to be a good nurse someday. I wanted to help people in need, especially the less fortunate once, because I know the feeling of being one of them.


I really feel so blessed being one of His creations and am very thankful to Him for the Gift of Life that He has given me, despite of all the problems and trials I've faced still, I am grateful and contented. I know as human I am not perfect and also fragile and easily weakened. But at some mischief of my life, Ive realized that I wouldn't come this far if He knows I'm not strong enough to face all these problems...and after all these tears I've shed, it's worth it...knowing that I've made it through the tough times and never lose my hope and faith in Him. Despite my trespasses and sins I've committed still, He's willing to forgive me. And who am I not to forgive people who have wronged me...


Lastly, as human beings, we are so earthly and materialist, we don't seem to be happy and contented with what and whom we have. We only remember God in times we were in trouble. But when we are happy we tend to forget Him, and sometimes when we ask something in our prayers we wanted it right away and when He doesn't grant it the way we wanted it we get mad at Him saying that He isn't existing. One thing I've learned from these video, all we have to do is to open our hearts to Him, believing in all His plans. Sometimes we may feel that He never listens to our prayers, but God never says NO. He only says YES or WAIT.


Have a great day!!

Tips for Better Relationship


Don't talk about work or the kids. Talk about you. One of the best things you can do to better your relationship is to let your partner know what you want, what you dream about, and how you feel. Our emotions are what make us human. We make our connections with other people through our emotions. Learning how to talk about our feelings is vital in maintaining an intimate relationship with our partner.

Develop a ritual around your relationship. We all look forward to Christmas, Easter and birthdays as times associated with bringing us close to family and friends, but we don't often realize that what we are doing is using ritual as a means of connection. Ritual can be used every day to strengthen bonds with those we love – such as sitting down as a family every night at the same to talk about what has happened to us that day, or making one night of the week 'family night' when everyone sits down together to eat – with no distractions from the television. Rituals have been a vital part of human bonding behavior since the beginning of time – and we ignore the value of ritual, we ignore the enormous benefits they can bring to our relationships.

Learn to listen. Many people think they are good listeners, and this belief prevents them from understanding what it means to be a good listener. It does not mean trying to fix someone else's problem. When was the last time you listened to your partner or one of your children and were able to hear and understand their point of view without expressing an opinion or offering advice or defending your own position? Some people have this rare skill but for most of us listening means waiting quietly until it's our turn to talk. Can you remain curious about what someone else is saying, even if it is sensitive for you, or opposes what you think is right, or what you yourself belief? Are you able to accurately reflect back to someone what they have said to let them know you really get their point of view? It's a rare but vital skill in any successful relationship.

Don't react – reflect. The most common behavior seen in distressed couples is what I call 'chain reaction.' One partner says something – and the other reacts defensively. Then the first partner becomes defensive to their defensives – and within a minute or two there is a blazing row. To break this pattern couples need to learn to reflect, not react. Really listening to your partner's issues instead of reacting to them can be the difference between anniversary and alimony.

Stay separate together. Sharing love and sharing lives should not mean living in each other's pockets. It's vital that two people do not lose their sense of self. Couples do not have to share the same friends, tastes, or habits to have a satisfying relationship. Clone-liness can lead to loneliness. A significant number of couples begin to feel enmeshed in a suffocating relationship – and separate in order to rediscover their sense of self. There will be times when you or your partner need time alone – and times when you need to lean on each other. Maintaining relationships with friends and family and activities that you had before you met, can be very important to a relationship in the long term. It can also expand your own horizons!

Turn away, turn towards or turn against? Dr John Gottman describes these as the three alternative behaviours we can adopt when relating to our partner. Everyone makes daily bids for emotional connection of some kind. We may want our partners attention, interest, enthusiasm and excitement about something we are excited about or affection etc. If our bids are met with a 'turning torward' response a deposit is made into the emotional bank account of the relationship. The more positive responses we get the higher our emotional bank balance gets. This healthy balance acts as a buffer to get couples through difficult periods. Turning towards our partner simply means acknowledging attempts at connection with love, kindness and interest. In contrast 'turning away' means not responding to our partners bids. Research states that couples who 'turn toward' one another in the little everyday moments in life report much higher relationship satisfaction and are more likely to remain together. Hence the importance of Gottman's motto 'small things often'.

Do things together that are fun! This may seem obvious – but it's so obvious many couples forget to do it. In between paying the bills and raising children and going to work many couples tend to squeeze in time to … argue. Every couple should have at least one 'date night' per week. This does not have to mean a candlelit French restaurant; it can mean going to the movies together or participating together in a sport. Anything from bridge to mountain climbing! It's just an opportunity to connect and have fun together.

Learn to fight clean. Dr John Gottman tells us that conflict in a relationship is not necessarily bad. What is bad is verbal abuse, violence or chronic arguing. Conflict is not a case of one partner being wrong and the other being right; it means there is an issue that needs resolving. Don't ignore it, and don't try and get your own way either. Don't continue in an argument if it starts to heat up – that only leads to disaster. Dr John Gottman has shown that two thirds of all conflict in a relationship is never resolved - the goal is to manage conflict not to eliminate it. When you are both able to compromise it shows that you value the other person and recognize your essential differences.

Never take love for granted. Celebrate your relationship every day. You'll miss all those little everyday things that you love about your partner if they were gone. The best way to keep them - be grateful for them in the now. Thank them for making you dinner or taking the rubbish out; tell them you like spending time with them. Couples who appreciate each other are not only happier in their relationships, but happier in their lives.

Sweeping things under the carpet makes for a lumpy carpet! For many couples communication means discussing whose turn it is to take the kids to school and whether to install a new deck. Make time every day to talk about the things that matter to you – and don't hope that problems will just magically disappear. They never ever do – molehills can quickly become mountains when they are ignored. Remember to share your dreams with your partner – but also talk about your concerns too.

"Three Words That Make Relationships Better"







Three-Word Phrases, can be tools to help develop every relationship. 

There are many things that you can do to strengthen your relationships. Often the most effective thing you can do involves saying just three words. When spoken sincerely, these statements often have the power to develop new friendships, deepen old ones and even bring healing to relationships that have soured.

The following three-word phrases can be tools to help develop every relationship.

~ Let me help:
Good friends see a need and then try to fill it. When they see a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they jump in and help out.

~ I understand you:
People become closer and enjoy each other more when the other person accepts and understands them. Letting your spouse know - in so many little ways - that you understand them, is one of the most powerful tools for healing your relationship. And this can apply to any relationship.

~ I respect you:
Respect is another way of showing love. Respect demonstrates that another person is a true equal. If you talk to your children as if they were adults you will strengthen the bonds and become closer friends. This applies to all interpersonal relationships.

~ I miss you:
Perhaps more marriages could be saved and strengthened if couples simply and sincerely said to each other “I miss you.” This powerful affirmation tells partners they are wanted, needed, desired and loved. Consider how important you would feel, if you received an unexpected phone call from your spouse in the middle of your workday, just to say “I miss you.”

~ Maybe you’re right:
This phrase is very effective in diffusing an argument. The implication when you say “maybe you’re right” is the humility of admitting, “maybe I’m wrong”. Let’s face it. When you have an argument with someone, all you normally do is solidify the other person’s point of view. They, or you, will not likely change their position and you run the risk of seriously damaging the relationship between you. Saying “maybe you’re right” can open the door to explore the subject more. You may then have the opportunity to express your view in a way that is understandable to the other person. 

~ Please forgive me:
Many broken relationships could be restored and healed if people would admit their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. All of us are vulnerable to faults, foibles and failures. A man should never be ashamed to own up that he has been in the wrong, which is saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.

~ I thank you:
Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the companionship of good, close friends are those who don’t take daily courtesies for granted. They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely constricted often do not have the attitude of gratitude.

~ Count on me:
A friend is one who walks in when others walk out. Loyalty is an essential ingredient for true friendship. It is the emotional glue that bonds people. Those that are rich in their relationships tend to be steady and true friends. When troubles come, a good friend is there indicating “you can count on me.”

~ I’ll be there:
If you have ever had to call a friend in the middle of the night, to take a sick child to hospital, or when your car has broken down some miles from home, you will know how good it feels to hear the phrase “I’ll be there.” Being there for another person is the greatest gift we can give. When we are truly present for other people, important things happen to them and us. 

We are renewed in love and friendship. We are restored emotionally and spiritually. Being there is at the very core of civility.

~ Go for it:
We are all unique individuals. Don’t try to get your friends to conform to your ideals. Support them in pursuing their interests, no matter how far out they seem to you. God has given everyone dreams, dreams that are unique to that person only. 

Support and encourage your friends to follow their dreams. Tell them to “go for it.”

~ I love you:
Perhaps the most important three words that you can say. Telling someone that you truly love them satisfies a person’s deepest emotional needs. The need to belong, to feel appreciated and to be wanted. Your spouse, your children, your friends and you, all need to hear those three little words: “I love you.” Love is a choice. You can love even when the feeling is gone."

Because I'm a Girl

I just can't understand
the ways of all the men and there mistakes
you give them all your heart
and then they rip it all away
you told me how much you love me
and how our love was meant to be
and i believed in you
i thought that you would set me free
you should've  just told me the truth
that i wasn't the girl for you
still, I didn't have a clue
so my heart depended on you...


Been told a man will leave you cold
get sick of you and bored
I know that it's no lie
I give my all, still I just cry
never again will I be fooled 
to give my all when nothing's true
I won't be played again
but I will fall in love again


I love you so
now you leave me in the cold
how could this be?
I thought that you'd only love me
into the night,
I will pray that you're alright
you hurt me so
I just can't let you go


You took advantage of my willingness
to do anything for love
now I'm the only one in pain
will you please take it all away?


Never thought born being a girl
how i can love you and be burned
and now I will build a wall
to never get torn again


Although I'll say i hate you now
though I'll shout and curse you out
I'll always have love for you
BECAUSE I AM A GIRL
