It has been more than a decade since Callalily was formed. Our transition period from grade school to high school were probably spent listening to them. Through the years, their songs became anthems on radios. Until now, their music has a certain charm that stays and grows with the listeners.


Now, let's all be nostalgic and pay a little tribute to our beloved band and to these songs that has contributed to our first heartaches and sing-alongs with the class.


Ex


Niyakap mong mahigpit palapit sa'yo
Wala na ngang hihigit sa pag-ibig mo
Pinawi mong lahat ng luha't kalungkutan sa 'king puso


The title might be taken out of a different context but the actual lyrics talks of being grateful for someone who loves you despite your flaws.



Pasasalamat


Sumabay kayo sa mga awit ko
Tungkol sa gabay at panaginip mo
Dahil sa inyo tuloy ang ikot ng mundo


This is a tribute to the loyal fans of Callalily, and we are more than honored to be part of the band’s journey.



Pansamantala


Bakit ba sa akin na lang
Palagi ang takbo
Sa tuwing kayo ay may away
Ako ang lagi mong karamay
'Di naman tayo, hindi
'Di ba't hindi


“Pansamantala” will hit us faster than we can say "friendzone". To those who are willing to be the crying shoulders of the one they love the most (who loves somebody else), we salute you.



Susundan


Susundan kahit san man magpunta
Di ka mawawala sa puso kong iyong iyo lamang
Di kita malilimutan


Remember this song's music video? Their desert setting is as "hot" as Kean Cipriano (oops).



Gabay


Andito lang ako
Gumagabay sa'yo
Laging Nakatitig
Kahit sa panaginip


A constant reminder that no matter how far apart you are with a certain loved one, distance shouldn’t be problem when it comes in expressing how you care.



Sanctuary


You are my light
You are my home
You are my sanctuary
You are my peace
You give me hope
You are my sanctuary


If someone would sing to you this Callalily song, we think tears of joy will overflow. To be called as someone’s sanctuary? That’s more than “awww-worthy”.



Pasan


At ngayon, pasan kita
Ngayon mo na makikita
Hindi ka na, sa akin ay luluha pa


This is the band reminding us that we are not alone. Thank you, Callalily.



Take My Hand


Take my hand
We'll fly to the sky
Close your eyes, I'm at your side
Tomorrows gonna be just fine


Callalily really knows how to comfort their listers since 2006.



Stars


If only I had wings so I can fly
I wanna be with you for all of time
My love
For you will never die


A perfect song for those who have loved, been apart, and lost. Still having a lot of feelings for this, tbh.



Magbalik


Wala nang dating pagtingin
Sawa na ba saking lambing
Wala ka namang dahilan
Bakit bigla na lang nang iwan


And, oh yes. The most well-known song of Callalily. We won't be surprised if you memorized every line of Magbalik. I mean, who wouldn't?



We know the lyrics are stuck in your head for the longest time. We can’t blame you. Callalily’s music already made it to our hearts and for sure, it will stay.


If we missed your favorite Callalily song, let us know!
