Utos Ng Puso

Alin ang aking susundin?
Ang isip ba o damdamin?
Ako’y naguguluhan sa aking nararamdaman
Ako’y laging nangangamba kung iibigin na kita
Ngunit walang magawa kapag ang puso’y nagyaya

Chorus:

Ano ang aking gagawin?
Hindi ko kayang pigilin
Inuutos ng puso ko ikaw ang ibigin
Kung sino man ang hahadlang
Ito’y aking ‘paglalaban
‘Yan ang utos ng puso ko
Na di makakaya na tanggihan
(na di matanggihan)

Bridge:

Ganyan talaga ang pag-ibig
Palaging handang magpakasakit

(Repeat Chorus 2x to fade)

Minamahal Pa Rin

Bakit nga ba di na maalala?
Ang pangakong di ka mag-iiba
Nakakita ba ng higit sa akin?
Kaya hindi na ako pinapansin

Chorus:

Di na ba ako ang nasa isip mo?
Kung kaya’t biglang-bigla kang nagbago
Di naman ganyan ang dating kilos mo
Hindi kaya mayro’ng ibang kasalo sa pagmamahal
Ngunit ano ang aking gagawin naman?
Kahit na malaman ko’y minamahal pa ri’y tanging ikaw

Di makaya kahit anong pagpigil
Iwasan kita at tuluyang limutin
Laging ikaw sa puso at damdamin
Dahil ika’y minamahal pa rin

Repeat Chorus 2x
Coda:

Kahit na malaman ko’y minamahal pa ri’y tanging ikaw…

Kay Saya Ko

Marami ang nagatatanong na
Kung bakit ikaw inibig ko sa dami ng manliligaw
Ang sabi ay sa ‘yo lamang natagpuan
Ang isang pag-ibig na tunay

Refrain:

Sino’ng magsasabing ikaw
Ang aking iibigin
Dahil maraming ayaw
At baka ako’y paluhain

Chorus:

Kay saya ko lagi sanang ganito
Nagkamali ang akala ng ibang tao
Ako’y ma’y nagulat sa pinakita mo
Di inaasahang ganyan ang pag-ibig mo
Kay saya ko sa piling mo

Sana ito ay hindi lamang sa simula
At sa huli ay hahantong sa pagluha
Dahil masasayang ang ating pinagsamahan
Kung di natin ipaglalaban

Repeat Refrain
Repeat Chorus 2x

Kay saya ko sa piling mo (kay saya ko); (2x)

For Your Love

You are the only one that really matters
I’ve never loved this way before
What should I do to make you mine forever
I can’t find the words to say to you
I’d do anything you ask me too
And for always you will stay here in my heart

Refrain:

You’re the only one that I have been waiting for
You’re the angel who’ve been sent here from above
I know I’ll never find another
And so now I thank the heaven’s for your love

A love like yours comes only once in a lifetime
I can’t find the words to say to you
I’d do anything you ask me too
And for always you will stay here in my heart

(Repeat Refrain)
Final Refrain:

You’re the only one that I have been waiting for
You’re my angel who’d been sent here from above
I know I’ll never find another
I was lost and you were there for me
All my sadness you just swept away
And so now I thank the heavens for your love
…So today I thank the heavens for your love

>>> back to top <<<

Forever

Now, while were here alone
And all is said and done
Now I can let you know
Because of all you shown
I’ve grown enough to tell you
You’ll always be inside of me
How many roads have gone by
So many words left unspoken
I needed to be by yourside
If only to hold you

Forever… in my heart
Forever here you’ll be
Even when I’m gone
You’ll be here with me
Forever…

Once I’ve dreamed that you were gone
I cried and tried to find you
I beg the dream to fade away
And please awaken me

But night took a hold of my heart
And left me with nothing to follow
The love that I’d lost to the dark
I’ll always remember

Forever in my heart
Forever here you’ll be
Know that when I’m gone
You’ll be near to me
Forever in my life
Always thought I’d be
I’d be yours…
Forever…

Heartbeat

You told me you love me babe I feel the same
We both know we’ll make it through the rain
Babe I know its true coz we made it through the ups and downs

There’s no other love like ours in this world
They know we stand out with this kind of love
All the angels are singin’ in the heaven’s above
I promise to you, my love will follow you
Even after you close your eyes, in the end…

Chorus:

And I won’t forget the day that I met you
Right there and then my heartbeat for you
The love I felt before is still the same and even more
You fill my world with all the colors of love

Repeat II
Chorus II:

And I won’t forget the day you said “I do”
You gave my world a new life to continue
So from this moment on I give my heart and soul to you
Cause my heartbeat belongs to you
Cause my heartbeat belongs only to you
True love I discovered comes only from you
The love I felt before is still the same and even more
Coz my heartbeat belongs… to you…

>>> back to top <<<

Di Mo Ba Alam?

Aking naaalala pa
Nang tayo ay unang magkita
Buhat noo’y inibig ka
At sa ‘yo ang buhay ko’y inalay na
Bakit ngayo’y wala ka na
Bakit ngayo’y nag-iisa
Di ba’t noo’y sinabi pa
Na pagmamahalan ay habangbuhay na

Chorus:

Sana magbuhat pa nang una
Ay nalaman ko’t nakita
Na damdami’y di magtatagal
Hindi sana nahihirapan
Kung hindi ka natutunan
Na dulutan ng pagmamahal
Di mo ba alam na ako’y nasasaktan

Repeat II
Repeat Chorus 2x
Coda:
Di mo ba alam na ako’y nasasaktan…  

>>> back to top <<<

My Heart Will Be With You

You have always said that I’m the only one
And that we could never ever be apart
But can’t help but notice that the feeling is gone
As I start to feel there’s crying in my heart

Refrain:

Tell me where I ever went so wrong
All the while I thought our love was strong
Tell how the love we had could ever end
I will always be inlove with you
Even if you leave me and you make me blue
My heart will be with you

I can still remember when we met before
When you told me I’m the one you’re living for
And you even said that you would love me even more
And that I’m the only one that you adore

Repeat Refrain
Bridge:

Can you ever make me understand?
Cause I think we’re really getting out of hand
All the hurt that I alone will ever spend

Repeat Refrain
My heart will always be with you… (2x)

>>> back to top <<<

Kahit Minsan

Kahit minsan ay ulitin natin ang mga lumipas
Mga sandaling akala natin ay hindi kukupas
Kahit na sa isang saglit man lamang
Ay makapiling ka sa ‘king kandungan

Chorus:

Kahit minsan ay hagkan ang mga labi
At kahit minsan pa pag-ibig ay maulit pang muli
Kung may pag-ibig pang sa ‘ti’y nalalabi
Kahit minsan ay maulit pang muli

Kahit minsan ay ulitin natin ang pagmamahalan
Mga sandaling puno ng saya at pagsusuyuan
Kahit na sa isang saglit man lamang
Ay makapiling ka sa ‘king kandungan

(Repeat Chorus)

Kahit minsan ay… kahit minsan ay…
Kahit minsan ay maulit pang muli…

Could It Be Magic

Spirits move me, everytime I’m near you
Whirling like a cyclone in my mind
Passive Peter, angel of my lifetime
Answer to all answers I can find

Refrain:

Baby I love you, come, come
Come into my arms
Let me know the wonder of all of you
And baby I want you now, now
Now and hold on fast
Could this be the magic at last

Baby take me, high upon a hillside
High up where the stallion meets the sun
I could love you, build my world around you
Never leave you till my life is done

Repeat Refrain
Coda:

Oh, could this be magic
Come, come, come, come, oh
Come into my arms
Let me know the wonder of all of you

About

8-aMichelle Draper in real life, a.k.a. JUSTINE DRAPER  is the eldest in a brood of four. Born to an Ilonggo-Antiqueño father, whose name’ s Dominador Draper and a Cebuana mother named  Victoria, Justine’s mestiza features bespeaks of her British ancestry from her father, and owes her Spanish blood from both genes as well.
          She thinks that she inherited her passion for music from her parents , her mom plays guitar and loves folk songs , way back in her young age. Her dad was a former session musician too in his younger years. Even her brothers and sisters had musical inclinations as well yet they’ve chosen to try  other fields of work.
           Justine advanced in her early years in Bagong Maria Clara Caloocan, when her family flew to Cebu to mourn for her grand fathers funeral that ended up to transferring her early grade school in Casay, Dalaguete . A year after, the family decided to go back to Manila for good. There she studied in Bagumbong Elementary to Bagumbong High School as a consummate top honor student with spontaneity, a Salutatorian grad and eventually a Valedictorian grad successively.
           It was here in Manila where her passion for singing developed. When she was little over eight years of age , she was urged by a friend to join amateur singing contests. It was one of Novaliches local singing contests where Justine was pulled out from the crowd , and urged to sing. That was her first singing contest , and luckily , she brought home the bacon.
           Discovering that she had a knack for singing , she further honed her talent by singing more , starting from time she wakes up until she sleeps. Her only break was to eat , nothing more. She joined more singing contests and even had a stint on television.
           Prior to becoming a professional singer , Justine was a part of the kiddie shows
Pen Pen de Sarapen and even guested with Sunshine and Friends, (a jumpstart career for Sunshine Dizon).
           She juggled singing and studying at the same time. In high school , thought she was busy singing as front act to some other recording artist like Geneva Cruz, Introvoys, South Border, and Ella Mae Saison, Chad Borja,etc.. yet she graduated valedictorian of her class. She even became the vice president, and eventually the president of their Student Council. She even won the hearts of her fellow youth when she ran for Councilor at  the Sangguniang Kabataan of their district in Caloocan by winning their votes. So as she served for four years.  She was judged as one of the Top Ten Most Outstanding Students in  Caloocan. A school paper editor, consummate essayist of their school’s essay writing champs. And even joined their schools, beauty pageants and brought honor to their school when she won as the First Runner-Up in KIPSIAM. (Kalookan Inter-Schools Athletic Meet). 
           Aside from singing , Justine also loves writing songs. She started writing poems first at eight. Her poems were about a cat , a dog , and about her school. In high school , she started translating her poems to a song and soon , her teachers would ask her to do a jingle for the school program.
           After high school , Justine took music composition at the UP Diliman Conservatory of Music while working and taking an Associate course in Computer Programming at the same time in STI, Novaliches , where she did won a trophy for the Championship at the SEARCH FOR THE SINGING PROGRAMMER in 1996. She was a former legitimate member of KATHA, and FILSCAP,( Filipino Society Of Composers, Authors and Publishers from 1997 to 2003. And spent her scholarship at the PSBA for BS Accountancy. But juggling for scholarship and working at night isn’t easy for a full loader, so she finally decided to drop school for a chance of a lifetime when offered a recording contract. She didn’t bother to think twice sacrificing studies for her passion in music.       
          To further developed her singing voice she underwent voice trainings at  Victor Canon, Kitchie Molina, Atek Jacinto and took private voice lessons in U.P. She was given the privilege to be trained at the Center for Pop Music Philippines under Butch Albarracin, and Joy, and later also took lessons at 
Ryan Cayabyab’s School for Music in her teens.
          Aside from pursuing her singing career , Justine was also a constant winner in many beauty contests. She was the BINIRAYAN dubbed as LIN-Ay Kang ANTIQUE”s FIRST-Runner Up. The so-called prestigious beauty contest in Panay Island. Where she joined a contest of mostly brain and beauty and how timely they excluded  the TALENT portion, that she expected but luckily she still brought the bacon.

          Justine, also unknown to some while studying in college, did some few mulitiplex for cover songs under Sonny Ilacad’s Sunshine Records. While singing at various Hotel lounge night acts. She even started as session to some few bands as The Crayons, Saint Tropez, X’S etc.

           Her crossroad to fame came after her frustration when she was not able to make it live and recorded the song she made to the finals for her fellow musician when she made a demo for the Metropop Songwriting Competition in year 1997.She was challenged, so she went on to join the Birit Queen, (song belting contest) in Eat Bulaga, (the reigning top-rated primetime noontime show in the Philippines’ Channel 7  to the present.) that same year and turned to be the First Runner Up and fortunately head on to be the chosen pioneer recording artist of Richsound Music Corporation, an independent recording company headed by Ricardo del Rosario, when she was spotted by Mel del Rosario. She debuted her first solo album, Just in Time, released year 1997 of September 28.Successfully, it top-billed the radio stations such as DWKC, WWR, Love radio, Cool 106, DM 95.5, and Yes Fm for months. And even rated as top 15 in the Philippine trade and Industry charts for its sales. The follow up was not as successful as the first, so she decided to accept international stints for better earnings as well.

          As an international performer, Justine had done shows in Tokyo and Kyoto Japan and Shanghai, China, singing at the Miyako Hotel Kyoto and Westin Shanghai respectively.  
          All these achievements prove that Justine is not just another face in show business. She is beauty and brains all rolled into one , and she has the potential to make it BIG.
