Realize your regrets with ‘Balita’ by I Belong to the Zoo

September 30, 2019 Shaina Dulay

Just wish them happiness together, even if it hurts that they are your best friend and ex. That is the message of I Belong to the Zoo’s latest drop, ‘Balita’.

We all know that recently, I Belong to the Zoo has been touching the hearts of many with their relatable music. ‘Sana’, ‘Balang Araw‘, and now ‘Balita’—how long will they keep us longing and emotional?

If you haven’t heard their latest single yet, you are honestly missing out! But don’t worry because we got you, as always.

Watch the lyric video for ‘Balita’ below!

Balita ko kayo ay masaya

Honestly, just the first line of the song struck us deeply. If you still haven’t caught up yet, the song talks about the singer’s friend and ex being happy together. Moreover, he sings about his regrets as he realizes how he still longs for his ex-lover.

Basta’t ‘wag mo lang hayaan
Na siya ay muli pang masaktan
Dahil di ‘ko inakalang
Hahanapin ko ang dating binitawan

However, now that his ex is with another person, he tells his friend instead the things that he must do to avoid hurting the person he loved. With this, he also expresses the weight he feels when he sees them happy together.

Balita ko kayo ay masaya
Bawat litratong aking nakikita
Dinidiin na siya’y wala na sakin
Wala nang talaga

Balita ko kayo ay masaya
Bawat buwan iba’t ibang bansa
Mga plano namin noon
Ginagawa niyo ngayon… ang ganda

Notice how that last line above also displays his sarcasm. Deep inside, it still hurts that it is now another person —and his friend at that!—who is making the person he loved happy. But hey, what else can he do but wish them both the best?
