Barry Manilow – Somewhere Down The Road lyrics

We had the right love
At the wrong time
Guess I always knew inside
I wouldn't have you for a long time

Those dreams of yours
Are shining on distant shores
And if they're calling you away
I have no right to make you stay,

But somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesnt't't't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours
Will come to see
That you belong with me

Sometimes goodbyes are not forever
It doesnt't't't matter if you're gone
I still believe in us together
I understand more than you think I can
You have to go out on your own
So you can find your way back home

* and somewhere down the road

Letting go is just another way to say
Ill always love you so

We had the right love
At the wrong time
Maybe weve only just begun
Maybe the best is yet to come

Cause somewhere down the road

    Somewhere down the road, we had a right love at the wrong time dito maihahambing ang love natin, I still remember after 23 years na walang communication, May 2013 in our batch reunion we saw each other siguro parehas kaming nahiya pero dahil alam ko sa sarili ko na ako ang unang di pumansin sa kanya noong naghighschool kami at marahil siguro na miss ko na ang dati kung kaibigan kaya ako na ang lumapit para kumustahin sya. Akala ko ako lang ang nagkaroon ng feelings sa kanya at yon ang dahilan kung bakit ko sya iniwasan noong highschool, pero nagkamali ako. Sa gitna ng celebration may lumapit sa akin na kaklase nya at pasimple akong sinabihan na hangang ngayon patay pa rin ang kaibigan nya sa akin, na hangang ngayon hindi pa rin nya ako nakakalimutan na kung maaari ayaw na nya akong layuan. Hind ako naniwala sa sinabi sa akin, after how many months Dec 2013 nagtext sya sa akin para masave ang number nya at sinabi nya na nakuha nya number ko sa isang ka batch namin. Dec 24 he again text me at nung time na yon sinabi nya sa akin kung anu ang nararamdaman nya dati at hanggang ngayon ganun pa rin. Nagsisisi sya kung bakit di sya nagsabi akin noon. Hindi ko sukat akalain na our feelings are mutual. Masaya na malungkot ang naramdaman ko. Masaya kasi mahal pala nya ako, malungkot kasi hindi na pwedeng ipagpatuloy kung ano man ang nararamdaman namin. Hangang ngayon patuloy pa rin ang communication at pagkikita namin. Hanggang ngayon walang sawang nagsasabi na mahal nya ako na kahit huli na nasabi nya pa rin ang pagmamahal nya sa akin. Pero dahil sa situation namin ngayon alam kung di pwede pero alam ko rin sa sarili ko na hindi ko sya kayang layuan, kaya kahit bilang kaibigan nandito ako para sa kanya. Ang pag ibig namin sa isat isa ay nasa di tamang panahon.

    I've been to a long relationship but we didn't end up because he marry other girl goshhh. For almost 10 years. At first its really hard for me to move on. After a year it was accidentally cross our path in supermarket. Maybe in the right time and in gods time the pain he gave to me will healed eventually. Now I'm happy with my new found love with my husband. Who love me completely.

    Why do you need to let go of someone? Simply because it is right love at the wrong time. It is hard to be in this situation most especially if one is virtuous and concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior. There will always be your consciense, that inner feeling within you. You can't be happy either. Letting go doesn't mean you don't care, in fact, you do, and it takes a lot of courage and sacrifice. This is because you want the person to be happy and be taken care of by the right one wherein the two of you can love freely and harmoniously. Maybe that's the meaning of real and true love.

    This song really means to me a lot! A story of my love life that's full of frustrations and regret. I got marriage to a guy which I don't loved as much as my ex. And after 5 yrs we met again somewhere here in the same place where we meet before and we both committed to each other we got talked and we both still in loved to each other. I loved him very much thou its been so long time! If only I can turn back the time! Ilove you ex. Mwah!

    This song really represent my love story.
    We broke up at early 2009 after 4. 5years. The reason was bcoz his mom still didn't like me, didn't want to accept that her son was having relationship with a girl which almost 6years older than him. She didn't care the reason her son felt in love with me becoz I remind him of his mom, the way I care and treat him, since loong before we became lover (actually he's my ex 'sunday school for teen' student).
    At that time whenever I listened to this song, I kept hoping that oneday 'our roads are gonna crossed again. His heart will come to see that he belong with me. '
    I really dedicated this song to my love story.
    Until oneday, months later, we accidentally met and at the end of that week he came again to my place. And we finally started over again, take the consequences.
    It's been quite long, and now he already become my husband for 2 years (and the mother still doesn't like and accept me. She just wants her son and granddaughter.).
    I still remember those moments whenever I hear this song.
