You’ll Never Walk Alone

Some of you may have chanced upon this blog because you’ve been clicking around for information on “Dili Kamo Nag-Iisa”, the football match for the benefit of Typhoon Sendong victims, which will be held on Saturday, January 7th, 4 p.m. at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila.

For the uninitiated, “Dili Kamo Nag-iisa” was derived from the song “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, originally a show tune from the 1945 Rogers and Hammerstein musical “Carousel”. Eventually, the song has been adopted as an anthem by various football clubs around the world, but it has been inextricably associated with Liverpool F.C. (You may wish to read more about it here.) The song’s most popular recording has been the 1963 version of Gerry and the Pacemakers, a British musical group that also came from Liverpool.

For fellow Filipino football fans that have yet to hear this song, you can download the MP3 here.

What strikes anyone listening to the song is the powerful message of hope that it brings, despite the most trying of times. We hope that those badly affected by the impacts of Typhoon Sendong in the southern portions of the Philippines—the ones that lost possessions, properties, and loved ones—would find comfort in the words of this song. We hope that even in their dire situation, they would find the strength to walk on and continue living—because no matter what, there will always be the ones who would walk beside them.

We hope that you will all join us in singing this song on January 7th.

You’ll Never Walk Alone

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark.

At the end of the storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver
Song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind

Walk on through the rain

Though your dreams
Be tossed and blown.

Walk on
Walk on

With hope in your hearts

And you’ll never walk alone

You’ll never walk alone.
