You came along, unexpectedly
I was doing fine in my little world
Oh baby please don't get me wrong
'Cause I'm not complaining
But you see, you got my mind spinning

REFRAIN:
Why can't it be
Why can't it be the two of us
Why can't we be lovers
Only friends
You came along
At the wrong place, at the wrong time
Or was it me

Baby I dream of you every minute
You're in my dreams
You're always in it
That's the only place I know
Where you could be mine
And I'm yours (Baby I'm yours)
Only till I wake up

REFRAIN:
Why can't it be
Why can't it be the two of us
Why can't we be lovers
Only friends
You came along
At the wrong place, (you came along) at the wrong time
Or was it me

REFRAIN:
Why can't it be
Why can't it be the two of us
Why can't we be lovers
Only friends
You came along
At the wrong place, (you came along) at the wrong time
You came along at the wrong place
At the wrong time
Or was it me (Or was it me)

Why can't it be...

    its sad talaga when you have a change of heart and you dont even have the courage to fight for the new founded love just because di mo kayang saktan yung taong sobrang nagmamahal sayo...
    even though how much you love the other girl and you know she loves you too, di pwedeng maging kayo, because you are committed to someone else..kahit na alam mong di ka na masaya, you have to sacrifice your own feelings.. and the saddest part of it, you're also hurting the one you really love and you doest even have a chance to show how much you love her and how broked you are not having her in your life...WHY CANT IT BE?

    Hiasstt.. I really love this song because this song is reminds me of someone i think i truly loved!!.. But we can't it be because we're both committed.. I have my boyfriend for 7yrs.. And the worst is he's married.. We really love each other and we can't fight this feeling anymore!! But we both know that our loved for each other is so much wrong!!.. So sad because we're only boyfriend girlfriend we can't be as one! We can't be a husband and wife! , we can't be till death do us part!!! Hu.. -=love you marison 21=-

    WHY CANT IT BE? why can't it be the two of us? its sad to love someone na committed na sa iba. and the saddest part is you need to let go and sacrifice your own feelings para na rin sa nakakarami.. kahit na alam mong hindi ka masaya and the saddest part of it is pareho kayong masasaktan.. :(

    -bakit ba kasi? Why can't it be the two of us? mahal naman natin ang isa't isa... sana tayo nalang.. sana tayo nalang ulit. pero ang hirap na ng sitwasyon natin committed na ako sa iba at marami na tayong masasakatan.. ayoko sanang gawin but i need to let you go and also my feelings for you.. mahal kita pero YOU CAME ALONG AT THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME... OR WAS IT ME? Iloveyou Goodbye EHB.

    i love this song, sobra! its sad when you have falen in love with someone else yet the time wont let the two of you be together because either one of you is already committed and all you have to do is to stay simply by just being friends.
