Moira Dela Torre just sang a special and moving version of her song, "Paubaya."

The singer rewrote the lyrics and performed the song on June 25, Friday, during the wake of former president Noynoy Aquino, who passed away on June 24 due to "renal disease secondary to diabetes." 

"Gusto kong magpasalamat kay Moira because she rewrote the lyrics so that it could be dedicated to Noy," said Kris Aquino before Moira and her husband Jason Hernandez's performance. "I would like to thank both of them for the effort that they made to be here, to be able to sing for Noy, and to sing for all of us."

"This is the only time we will hear this version and again, Moira, salamat. I actually got my dream because I got to co-write with you. Salamat. And just to let all of you know that Noy loved music so much and that's why this was very important to me to be able to do this for my brother."

We're sure you're all very much familiar with the original lyrics, and this version's lines will make you cry.

Saan nagsimulang magbago ang lahat?
Kailan nung kami ay 'di na naging sapat?
Ba't 'di ko nakita nung una pa lang?
Ikaw ang kailangan, at ikaw ang mahal

Saan nagkulang ang aming pagmamahal?
Lahat ay binigay nang mapangiti ka lang
Ba't 'di ko nakitang nahihirapan ka?
Kami ang kasama, pero kailangan mo na Siya
Ika'y masaya na sa piling Niya
Hindi ko na pipilit pa
Ang tanging hiling ko lang sa Kanya
Huwag ka nang paluhain at alagaan ka Niya

Marami pa ring tanong ang nasa isip ko
Hindi na alam kung alin ang totoo
Ngunit nahirapan ka na rin pala
Kaya habambuhay kitang alaala

Ika'y masaya na sa piling Niya
Hindi ko na 'pipilit pa
Ang tanging hiling ko lang sa Kanya
'Wag kang paluhain at alagaan ka Niya

Ba't 'di ko naisip na merong hangganan
Salamat sa oras na nakapiling ka

At kita naman sa iyong mga mata
Kung bakit maligaya ka na
Mahirap labanan ang tinadhana
Nagpapaalam
Pinapalaya
Pinapaubaya ko na sa Kanya
