    WHAT. These aren’t cheesy at all. No hate, no shade. But maybe these are overplayed songs people can’t admit they actually like? They’re love songs, but they aren’t the CHEESIEST. They are far from cheesy – except Ed’s!!

    Try Ang Bandang Shirley’s Patintero/Habulan/Larong Kalye:
    magtago ka
    ako na muna ang taya
    di ako titigil
    hangga’t di kita nakikita
    kasi kung ika’y aking mahuli
    di ko kagad masasabi
    kung ano ang una kong gagawin sayo
    at kung ika’y maaabutan
    hinding-hindi ka bibitawan
    kasi kanina pa tayo
    naghahabulan (http://angbandangshirley.bandcamp.com/track/patintero-habulan-larong-kalye)

    IT’S PERFECT. Right?!

    I also want to add this cheesy song: If I’m James Dean, You’re Audrey Hepburn (Acoustic version) by Sleeping with Sirens. Here’s the lyrics:
    [Intro:]
    Stay for tonight
    If you want to
    I can show you
    What my dreams are made of,
    As I’m dreaming of your face
    I’ve been away for a long time
    Such a long time
    And I miss you there
    I can’t imagine being anywhere else
    I can’t imagine being anywhere else but here

    [Verse 1:]
    How the hell did you ever pick me?
    Honestly, I could sing you a song
    But I don’t think words can express your beauty
    It’s singing to me
    How the hell did we end up like this?
    You bring out the beast in me
    I fell in love from the moment we kissed
    Since then we’ve been history

    [Chorus:]
    They say that love is forever
    Your forever is all that I need
    Please stay as long as you need
    Can’t promise that things won’t be broken
    But I swear that I will never leave
    Please stay forever with me

    [Verse 2:]
    It goes to show, I hope that you know that you are
    What my dreams are made of
    Can’t fall asleep, can’t fall asleep
    I lay in my bed awake, in my bed awake at night
    As I dream of you
    I’ll fall in love, you’ll fall in love
    It could mean everything, everything to me
    I can’t imagine being anywhere else

    [Chorus:]
    They say that love is forever
    Your forever is all that I need
    Please stay as long as you need
    Can’t promise that things won’t be broken
    But I swear that I will never leave
    Please stay forever with me

    [Bridge (2x):]
    The way that we are
    Is the reason I stay
    As long as you’re here with me
    I know I’ll be OK

    [Chorus:]
    They say that love is forever
    Your forever is all that I need
    Please stay as long as you need
    Can’t promise that things won’t be broken
    But I swear that I will never leave
    Please stay forever with me

    (I couldn’t love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)
    They say that love is forever
    Your forever is all that I need
    (I couldn’t love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)
    Please stay as long as you need

    (I couldn’t love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)
    Can’t promise that things won’t be broken
    But I swear that I will never leave
    (I couldn’t love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)
    Please stay forever with me
