We are literally holding our breath as we wait for the night when Secondhand Serenade takes the stage once more, filling the air with the heartfelt lyrics and haunting tunes that made them a staple in our playlists. Known for their emotionally wrenching songs, the band’s return is sure fire way to an evening of nostalgia as they sing to us their timeless tracks, such as:

Fall for You

The ultimate emo anthem that had us all singing along and feeling every word as if we were actually in a relationship full of challenges and at the edge of an upcoming breakup.

Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find

Fall For You – Secondhand Serenade

Your Call

A beautiful ballad that spoke to our hearts and made us believe in the power of love and longing as we wait for the call of our beau. It was the ultimate waiting song.

I was born to tell you I love you
And I am torn to do what I have to
To make you mine, stay with me tonight

Your Call – Secondhand Serenade


A song that perfectly shows the fragility and intensity of young love. Also, it was the song that was featured in most Wattpad stories (remember when Wattpad used to be read on our keypad phones?), such as Voiceless by HaveYouSeenThisGirl.

Tell me, tell me
What makes you think that you are invincible
I can see it in your eyes that you’re so sure
Please don’t tell me that I’m the only one that’s vulnerable

Vulnerable – Secondhand Serenade

These tracks, among many others, became the soundtrack of our youth as it dug deeply into the pangs of heartache and the bittersweet joy of love.

As Secondhand Serenade returns to the Philippines, fans can expect a performance that will transport them back to simpler times. While their tickets are to go on sale this June 29, they are expected to sell out fast.
