[Verse 1:]
Take time to realize,
That your warmth is
Crashing down on in.
Take time to realize,
That I am on your si-i-i-de
Didn't I, didn't I tell you.

But I can't spell it out for you,
No, it's never gonna be that simple
But I can't spell it out for you

[Chorus:]
If you just realize what I've just realized,
Then we'd be perfect for each other
And we'll never find another
Just realized what I just realized
We'd never have to wonder if
We missed out on each other now.

[Verse 2:]
Take time to realize
Oh-oh I'm on your si-i-i-de
Didn't I, didn't I tell you.
Take time to realize
That this all can pass by
Didn't I didn't I tell you
[Refrain:]
But I can't spell it out for you,
No it's never gonna be that simple
But I can't spell it out for you.

[Chorus:]
If you just realized what I just realized
Then we'd be perfect for each other
And we'd never find another
Just realized what I've just realized
We'd never have to wonder if
We missed out on each other but.

[Verse 3:]
It's not that the same
No it's never the sa-a-ame
If you don't feel it too.
If you meet me half way
If you 'd meet me half way.
It could be the same for you.

[Chorus:]
If you just realize what I just realized
Then we'd be perfect for each other
And we'd never find another
Just realize what I just realized
We'd never have to wonder no-o-w

Just realize what I just realized

If you just realize what I just realized

Oh...

Missed out on each other now
Missed out on each other now
Missed out on each other now

Realize, realize
Realize, realize

    well...
    do you know the line between friendship and love,
    it like taking risk...
    but its good if you fall inlove with your best friend coz
    you know him so much..
    you have no doubts..
    a perfect combination...
    but,
    lovers do fight...
    even though friends...

    but its a challenge in your relationship w/c you must get through...

    he doesn't see the relationship the same way as she does she can't make him understand where she is with it he has to get to the same place she is at on his own or it won't be everlasting love

    when pride prevails over love, you will never be able to realize the worth of a person. when you enter into a relationship be sure that you can handle everything. both parties should be matured in dealing with whatever problems that come in their way. when you had misunderstanding, talk it out...be humble to accept each others differences
