Journey frontman Arnel Pineda performed an original composition for the survivors of super typhoon “Yolanda” on “It’s Showtime” Saturday. The ballad, entitled “This Christmas,” invites everyone to extend a helping hand to the survivors of the calamity in Visayas during the Christmas season.
“Ang message ng kantang ito ay lahat tayo in our own little way, puwede tayong maging ‘Santa’ sa mga gusto nating tulungan at sa mga mahal natin sa buhay,” said Pineda. (The message of this song is that all of us, in our little own way, can be a ‘Santa’ to anybody we want to help, and to our loved ones)
THIS CHRISTMAS LYRICS
Through all these years, into crossfires of conflicts, buried in your eyes – a bloodstain of fears. You’ve trekked through a life all homeless and loveless, wounded and in near-death. Wonder if you’ll ever find the healing comfort of His cradle?
Can I be your Santa? Can I be the gift? Can I be your hero? Can I be your freedom…this Christmas.
Painful tears and cold roads are fading. Enough of darkness, days ahead are brighter! Angels’ little hands are reaching to grace you – the kindness of yuletide from the heavens!
So let me be your Santa, let me be your gift. Let me be your hero, let me be your freedom…this Christmas
I’ll never be our Savior in a manger; instead a friend who will stand by your side.
