A Safe Seclusion: Songs for the Heartbroken

Venting out emotions alternatively other than crying does help a lot in the "moving-on" process where we become so fragile and vulnerable, did you ever feel that you are nothing but a worthless lover trying to find your way back to the game? Sucks right? And when friends come over and share their awful experiences with their loved ones you too can say "been there, done that".

When get hurt or plainly get emotional about things, I vent it out through writing. I've got notebooks of random writings, it's either a plain heartless rant or in the form of bittersweet poetry.

I've written songs way back in 2006 and during my college life ( I graduated batch 2012 yay!) my friends heard some of my recorded songs, well I kind of forced them into listening to it. I didn't really wanna share the songs because it's like my diary, what I've written there are nothing but real emotions and I was afraid people might know too much about my life.
This is the first album art titled "A Safe Seclusion" with the help from Dani Dulay.

Some of my friends talked me into sharing these songs and at first it was a little uneasy but later on we were already creating an album cover and lining up the songs for release!

I titled it "A Safe Seclusion" because I think these songs can accompany hurting persons who want to be alone and just listen to music and stare at the stars.

So these are the songs included in the "a safe seclusion" mini album:

This is the first song, written in 2009 and recorded in 2011. "18 Last Letters" tells about the last love letters written to a loved one that was lost and there's nothing left but memories through these 18 Last Letters.

"Free" was written in 2008 and was recorded in 2012, it's about a person wanting to leave your life but this person is the one who completes you but you don't have a choice but to let go.

"In A Second" is about a love that slipped away too fast even before it was realized. Written by a friend of mine, let's just hide her in the name of "Theapots". It was a poem of hers that I asked if I could make a song out of it and so she said yes, written in 2011 and recorded in 2012.

"Manila Sky" is about love at first sight, I still believe in it. Written in 2010, Recorded in 2012.

-I hope you guys would like these songs I've written and you are all free to share and download it from youtube!
