YouTube user Anne Jou commented on their music video of Pagtingin, sharing her tale of unrequited love.
“I had a best friend during high school whom I liked but I never told him because I was scared of losing our friendship and also him, himself,” she starts.
“So instead of telling him what I actually felt, I hid and buried my feelings.
And you know what happens to feelings that are buried? They grow. The like I felt for him became love wherein I wrote poems, songs, and also books for him.”
“After 8 years, I attended his wedding last January,” she continues. “And guess what? The world is really overly-cruel. Before his wedding, he thanked me for being his best friend and told me that before he met the girl he got married to, he loved me for first. For 5 years.”
“But he was also scared of losing me so he just decided to keep it. I was shocked and I slightly had anger towards the world.
She makes the bittersweet conclusion: “We didn’t know that if only one of us dared to make a move, a lifetime was waiting for us. So people, while you can, please express how you really feel so that in the end you won’t regret anything.”
Ben&Ben have not disclosed any further details on the song, but you can bet we’ll be eagerly awaiting it.
