(Dedicated to Romy, wife and kids)

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night,
Thought of things that meant so much for me and my wife -
Children, school and house, livelihood and life.
I can’t stop thanking God for these unanswered prayers.

[When I was young/Back then] my dreams were diff’rent
from what I have now.
I took a lot for granted, never cared so much;
Dreaming far away, I could never stay.
But now, I’m thankful, God, for these unanswered prayers.

[You/they] are the [answer/answers] to my unanswered prayers.
I swear to God [you/they] are my unanswered prayers;
I may not have known coz I was so young and alone
But now I realize you are the answer to my very prayers.

Funny but it seems like God had made plans all along.
Took a lot of twists and turns, had to let go of my own;
Funny it may seem, you know, how lucky have I been
Now I have you all beside me - my unanswered prayers.

God, I can’t thank enough, you’re the Lord of my life.
Coz I owe you so much, I fall down on my knees;
I couldn’t bear the thought of it had you answered all my dreams
I wouldn’t have my wife and kids - your very answer to my unanswered prayers.


(Repeat Refrain except last line)

But now I realize you are the answer to my very prayers.

Year 2009 is a trailblazing year for us as we embark on a new musical venture we've never tried before - collaborative songwriting and self-publishing. It's a dream we never dared explore in years past when our minds were clear, pure and innocent (LoL), and our imaginations, ambitions and dares were kinda at its peak (huh!). Even though we're both musicians who grew up - and played sports - together, and whose passion for music is beyond anyone's knowing and description, our respective musical journeys have never really crossed paths before except at informal and not-so-formal gatherings (e.g. barkada gatherings, music club gigs, etc) where one played and the other appreciated, in company of boyhood friends. Thirty something years, as a matter of fact, such life's arrangement seemed to be the soup du jour of a lifetime between us from years 1976 to 2008. Then 2009 came and all of a sudden, boom!(forgive us for sounding too cocky and ambitious, hahaha), like an old friend would like to say, an "ala-Lennon-McCartney/Bernie Taupin-Elton John" meeting of the minds and hearts almost instantaneously became the rule of the day and of our newfound fervor, writing songs together!


Roro Music is a combination of two musical minds both of whom are true Dagohoy-blooded Boholanos. It's a collaboration founded on years of friendship, common life experience and shared interest but whose current musical quest and aspiration go beyond the limits and boundaries of some home-grown and culturally-embraced influences of the present time (pop culture), in pursuit of something new and unfamiliar, yet very special (we're going country!), in the hope of breaking new grounds (for future performing artists), creating fresh perspectives (for budding songwriters) and laying new platforms for many ipodcasters (modern music lovers) to enjoy, celebrate and tread on in the many years to come.

Musically yours,

Romeo C. Mascariñas & J. Roel Lungay
