How can I ever say goodbye, dear Makati?
You are the only place I want to live.
Your tall and mighty buildings are my comfort
The sound on your surrounding tells I am in harbor.
Nineteen years, you are my beloved home
You are greatly a witness how fine lady I become
Yet, it is true nothing is forever
I needed to be away, to be better
I ought to try something new
That is something I can’t find in you
You are my comfort zone that I needed to leave
So fully; Change, in me, can conceive
Here is my way to bid adieu
With a promise I’ll be back in you.
I won’t be long in the south.
It is your city I’ll always love, No Doubt.
