  • regine-velasquezWhen Regine Velasquez marches down the aisle in a flam­ing-red gown by Monique Lhuil­lier “sometime in December, on a beach somewhere,” for her altar date with Ogie Alcasid,

    she will do so to the tune of Iniibig Kita, a song composed by Ryan Cay­abyab between 1992-1993 for Raul Mitra for Raul’s first CD re­cording but was not included in the final CD tracks. It was later re­corded by James Coronel (former Smokey Mountain member) in 1994; by the San Miguel Master Chorale and the San Miguel Phil­harmonic Orchestra in 2004; and by Sharon Cuneta in 2010.

    “It is a mildly known but most requested wedding song,” Ryan told Funfare. “I offered it as Regine’s bridal march, to be sung by my good friends The Tux who are also good friends of both Regine and Ogie.”

    Regine cried when she heard the song (part of it anyway) for the first time during the recent concert of Ogie and Ryan. Here are the complete lyrics of Iniibig Kita:

    Kulang ang araw at gabi ‘pag kita’y kapiling.
    Kahit ang bukas ay di rin sapat upang mamasdan lamang kita.
    Labis kitang minamahal, pagibig ko’y walang kapantay.
    Kung kaya ko lang abutin ang mga bituin t’yak ito’y gagawin.
    Malaman mo lang wala nang ibang mas hihigit pa sa pag-ibig ko sa ‘yo.
    Walang ibang nagmamahal ng tulad ko sana’y paniwalaan mo.
    Iniibig kita. Kulang ang araw at gabi ‘pag kita’y kapiling.

    Kahit ang bukas ay di rin sapat upang mamasdan lamang kita.
    Labis kitang minamahal, pagibig ko’y walang kapantay.
    Kung kaya ko lang abutin ang mga bituin t’yak ito’y gagawin.
    Malaman mo lang wala nang ibang mas hihigit pa sa pag-ibig ko sa ‘yo.
    Walang ibang nagmamahal ng tulad ko sana’y paniwalaan mo.
    Iniibig kita. Iniibig kita. Iniibig kita. Iniibig kita. Iniibig kita.
    Ooh…
