Paano Ba Ang Mangarap?

I was watching Sarah G Live earlier and she pays tribute to OPM. Filipino music is still the best. We have the best singers in the world. APO, Basil Valdez, Eraserheads, Sarah G to name a few.

Sarah’s finale song was Paano ba ang Mangarap. I haven’t heard this song for a very long time. I know that this was a theme song of a Vilma Santos movie but I can’t remember the title. The melody lingers in my mind but I can’t make the words so I had to Google it. Thanks Google. This is a Basil Valdez song.

Some of the lyrics of the song:

Di ko na alam muli pang mag-isa
Mula nang makapiling ka
Dahil ako’y umasa na lagi kang kasama
Laban sa mundo ay tayo lang dalawa

Paano ba ang mangarap kung bigo
At may sugat ang iyong puso
Di ba’t kailanga’y may kaagapay
Pagmamahal mo ay ang tangi kong buhay
