Ben&Ben wades through a bad breakup on angsty rock anthem “Langyang Pag-ibig”





Ben&Ben chronicles the inevitable disintegration of a romantic relationship on“ Langyang Pag-ibig ,” their latest single under Sony Music Philippines.

Witnessing how a burning love ultimately ends up in a disaster, the nine-piece Filipino collective writes a song that wades through a bad breakup with the stinging anger of someone struggling to put their life back on track.





Arranged with classic rock bigness and percussive elements, the song packs a devastating punch with a chorus that articulates one’s feelings of being betrayed.“It’s the song where we flexed our musicality the most,” says the acclaimed band. “It’s three songs in one song, but it still sounds like one song.”





“Langyang Pag-ibig” is recorded at Spryta Studios, the same place where Ben&Ben recorded the entirety of their multi-platinum debut album, Limasawa Street. It was produced by Ben&Ben and Jean Paul Verona, mixed by Sam Marquez and Verona, and mastered by Leon Zervos.

“We’ve always wanted to make a song with this vibe, and we think the songwriting in itself begged for it,” shares the chart-topping folk-pop group in a statement. “It helped that Jean Paul and Sam were very familiar with the vibe we were going for and that helped create the general mood and sound we wanted for Langyang Pag-ibig.”

According to the band, “Langyang Pag-ibig” was approached in the familiar way their songs were recorded. They jammed it first a couple of times, and arranged it together slowly as if building a house of cards. “We also balanced elements and see how high we could take the themes,” adds the band.

Ben&Ben’s “ Langyang Pag-ibig ” is out now on all streaming platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines.

Ben & Ben – Langyang Pag-ibig Lyrics

Langyang pag-ibig ‘yan
Ang dami mong isusugal
Kung balak mo akong iwan
O bat’ mo pa’ko minahal?

Tanda ko pa and panghuli mong
Katamis na mga salita
Sabi mo, ‘di mo na’ko mapapasaya’
Kaya’t aalis ka na

Pasensya na’t ‘di nagparamdam
Ayaw humilom ng hapdi
Kailan ba tayo magkikita?
May mga hinanakit pang gustong isigaw

[Chorus]
Langyang pag-ibig ‘yan
Ang dami mong isusugal
Kung balak mo akong iwan
O bat’ mo pa’ko minahal?

Alam kong ‘di tayo tinadhana
Ang dami lang tirang mga sana
Ba’t ka pa nag-abala?
Kung magsasawa ka lang rin pala





Nasayang ba’ng mga taon
ng buhay kong inalay sa’yo?
Ba’t ba kasi nangyari ‘yon?
O hanep ka namang magdesisyon

Sayang ba ang oras nating magkasama
At sinundan ko pang mga payo ng mga tala?
Kung pupunitin ko na ang mapang
Pabalik sa’yo, pabalik sa’yo

[Instrumental]

Kung ika’y magmamahal uli
‘Wag kang magpapangako
Kung ‘di mo kayang panindigan
‘Wag kang magpapangako
Kung ‘di mo kayang panindigan

[Repeat Chorus]

Sana masaya ka na
sa piling niya, sa piling niya
At kahit sinagad ko pa
naglaho ka, naglaho ka

Alam kong ‘di tayo tinadhana
Ang dami lang tirang mga sana
Ba’t ka pa nag-abala
Kung magsasawa ka lang rin pala

(‘Wag kang magpapangako
Kung ‘di mo kayang panindigan
‘Wag kang magpapangako
Kung ‘di mo kayang panindigan)

Ikaw ang aking pinakamatamis na pagkakamali
