Ben&Ben released the official lyric video of the song on its YouTube channel, also today. It is also available on Spotify, Apple Music and various other streaming platforms.
“But I apologize / For coming into your life / Just to break your heart to pieces / And then leave you in the night ,” the band sings.
Guico opened up on the inspiration behind “The Ones We Once Loved” on his own Instagram page yesterday, Aug. 25.
“[A] few years ago, I was in a long-term relationship which you’ve known much about, [because] we shared a bit of our journey with you. And then, it ended. The time that passed since then has been an incredible journey of self-discovery, healing and growth for both of us, individually,” he said. “Eventually, peace, acceptance, respect for the past, and closure came. It wasn’t easy, and there were many emotions that went into that process.”
“Those emotions are in the song you are about to hear. So, my prayer is that if you are going through your own process right now, or there are unspoken feelings or thoughts you may still have, may this song help you through them. May you have the closure you search for, and the happiness you deserve,” he added.

Ben&Ben first teased “The Ones We Once Loved” by leaving cryptic quotes on its social media accounts and a billboard last week.
This comes after the nine-piece music act released the songs “Paninindigan Kita” and “Langyang Pag-Ibig” last June. It also recently collaborated with Indonesian singer-songwriter Pamungkas for the English version of “Paninindigan Kita.”
