Amber Davis – Manila lyrics

Take me back to the place I love
Take me back to the place I love, uhuh uhuh
Take me back to the place I love
Take me back to the place I love

I remember when were kids
Having bar-b-ques in the bukid
When the brownouts came, we were never alone
We just played in the streets til the lights came on

Six o'clock in the mornin'
Bakery just opened
You can smell the bread, they was cooking from a mile away
Ain't nothing like a fresh piece to start your day in...

Chorus
Manila (Manila, Manila)
I'm comin' back to Manila
The only place that I call home (home)
I'm comin' back to...

Manila (Manila, Manila)
I'm comin' back to Manila
The only place that I call home (home)

Signal to the jeepney (pick me up)
Take me to the place where (I grew up)
Back to the kids in the park where we played all day
Some had a shed for a home but it was all okay

'Cause in Manila, we all the same
Everybody's waiting for things to change
In the barrio, that's how it is
We didn't care much 'cause we were kids, oh

Chorus
Manila (Manila, Manila)
I'm comin' back to Manila
The only place that I call home (home)
I'm comin' back to...

Manila (Manila, Manila)
I'm comin' back to Manila
The only place that I call home (home)

Rap
I've been gone for a minute but I'm on the next flight
And the plane man says we can make it by night
Can't wait to touch down in my old hometown
Had a girl, we used to kick it but I doubt she's still around, yo

It's all good 'cause I'm back in the jungle
Where the girls in bikinis all come in a bundle
And pain and poverty is everywhere
But when the smoke all clears, there's only love in the air

I've been gone too long
I'm coming home

Gone too long
I'm comin' home (comin' back to the place I love)
Gone too long
I'm comin' home (comin' back to the place I love)
I'm comin' back to Manila

Yo yo yo yo
I say, babalik ako sa Manila, Manila
Babalik ako sa Manila, Manila
Babalik ako sa Manila, Manila
Babalik ako, babalik ako, babalik
Babalik ako sa Manila, Manila
Babalik ako sa Manila, Manila
Babalik ako sa Manila, Manila
Babalik ako, babalik ako, babalik

I'm comin' home (Manila, Manila, Manila, Manila)
I'm comin' back to Manila (comin' back to the place I love)
I'm comin' back to Manila (Manila, Manila, Manila, Manila)
I'm comin' back to Manila (comin' back to the place I love)
(Manila, Manila, Manila, Manila, Manila)
(Comin' back to the place I love)
Comin' back to the place I love
Comin' back to the place I love
Comin' back to the place I love (whoa)
