Lately I see clouds of sorrow in your eyes
Some deep sadness you can never quite disguise
I was scared to ask where it's leading to
But I'm more afraid of not asking you.

***
Is there something that you want to tell me?
Is there something that I ought to know?
Are we something that's still worth fighting for
Or should I simply let you go?
Is there something I can do to reach you?
Are we something more than history?
I'll find some way to convince you to stay
If you just tell me honestly
Is there something left of you and me?

You've got secrets you've been keeping for too long
I'm going crazy acting like there's nothing wrong
I can taste the truth every time we kiss
But I can't go on
At least not like this.

Repeat***

I don't want to lose you
But what's the use of holding on
I don't really have you
If the feeling's gone.

Is there something I can do to reach you?
Are we something more than history?
If there's no way to convince you to stay
Then be the way it used to be.
But there's something that I want to tell you
And I want you to believe it's true
We had something that I'll never forget
Even if I wanted to
A part of me will always be with you.

    is there something that you want to tell me?--if you want me to set me free just go on and do it,.don't hesitate to tell me that you dont love me anymore.kasi mas matanggap ko pa un na sabihin mo hindi mo na ako mahal kaysa magmuka ako tanga at umasa na mahal mo.i knew its hard for us to be frends after this..but i make it sure that our frendship will remain..

    Sad song i also remember my bff, when i told him i have a bf he was teary eyed, said goodbye and went home, i was laughing at him at that time bec i didnt expect that he would react like that... Ang pride nga nmn, kse naman ayaw nya ng commiment ano ako ... Waiting hay... Ayun until now sad pa rin cya.. Still single.

    I miss malo so much... I dont know if i can still hold on... We part ways but we still see each other... We are still sweet when were together! But i know im not the one who own ur heart right now... Minsan i can feel na u still love me... Dko alam kung totoo ba un or guilty ka lng... The sad part was matagal na pala na d na ako ang laman ng puso mo pero i was blind enough not to find it out... Just so sad that this has to happen.. Mahal pa dn kta! 4 1

    really is a sad song, u r afraid of asking what's wrong or what is happening, suddenly u felt that he doesnt like u anymore but hesitant to ask question, pretending that everything is alright, thru this song hope i can find an answer to my question, afraid of letting u go, despite the fact that i can never have u, no chance for us to be together... :(

    It's a sad song...letting go of the one you trully love and holding on to the memories you had. To you bff, we had somethng that I will never forget even if I wanted to...part of me will always be with you...
