GMA-7 actor-singer Mikoy Morales recently launched his second single titled "Sana," which he wrote himself.
Mikoy's composition can also be added to the long list of hugot songs since it is about hoping to get a second chance with an ex-lover.
However, what makes the song more dramatic and relatable is that the lyrics reflected how he felt while writing this song.
In his blogcon, Mikoy admitted that he composed "Sana" when he and girlfriend Thea Tolentino temporarily broke up sometime in 2016.
He disclosed, "Yung lyrics nito, dumating ito sa time when I was going through a break-up.
"Although it was closed na, parang umasa pa rin ako kasi.
"Ito yung times na nagsusulat ako, talagang nagkikita pa rin kasi kami kahit noong break na kami.
"Friends pa rin kami, so which is really hard, friends pa rin daw kasi kami. So andun pa rin, hindi nawawala yung thought na hopeful ka pa rin na may chance ulit.
"So I came up with a song kasi I was in a point na parang tapos na yung kontratahan, e.
"Masyado nang lalala pa kapag every now and then, pupunta ako doon para sabihin lang sa kanya yung mga iniisip ko, e. Wala na, e. Tapos na.
"Yung song, it's very hopeful, it's very mellow, soft, intimate, ganun siya kapersonal sa akin.
"Tungkol siya sa mga umaasa pa din kahit tapos na kasi meron kang gut feeling na hindi, after all, please.
"Sa dulo, parang feeling mo, one way or another magiging kayo pa rin."
Was it difficult for Mikoy to compose a song for an ex-girlfriend who became a friend?
Frankly, he answered, "In a way, mas difficult, kasi kaya nga ako nakagawa ng kanta kasi di ko masabi ng diretso nung time na yun, kahit friends pa kami.
"Ang hirap kasi sa sobrang desperado mo, parang mindset ko noon na friends na nga lang kami, so baka masira pa yun lalo pag inamin ko na naman lahat sa kanya yun."
After going through that rough patch, Mikoy and Thea are once again a couple. In fact, the 23-year-old singer admitted last April that they have been in a relationship for the past four years.
Mikoy pointed out Thea heard the song only after they got back together.
"Nalaman naman niya na may ganyan, nagkabalikan na kami.
"Proud nga siya. Narinig na niya. Alam naman niya na may buong album para sa kanya!"
After the blogcon, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Mikoy regarding his relationship with Thea, who is known as one of GMA-7's new-generation kontrabidas.
He answered with a smile, "Okay kami, sobra!
"Nag-mature kami, at the same time, mas naging super… ewan ko, siguro isa sa mga symptoms noon na parang hindi na kami nag-aaway.
"Everything's so chill! Sometimes, it's scary but everything's so chill! Mas nagkakaintindihan kami."
Aside from being real-life sweethearts, Mikoy and Thea were also finalists of GMA's artista search Protégé: The Battle For The Big Artista Break, aired in 2012.
Currently, Mikoy can be seen in television portraying gay roles in the sitcom Pepito Manaloto and the afternoon drama series D' Originals.
Meanwhile, Thea is set to appear in an upcoming afternoon show titled Haplos.

Mikoy also performed his first official single titled "Pusong Hindi Makatulog" which was also his own composition.
