We laugh until we had to cry
And we love right down to our last goodbye
We were the best,
I think we'll ever be
Just you and me
For just a moment

We chase that dream we never found
And sometimes we let one another down
But the love we made,
Made everything alright
We shone so bright
For just a moment

Time goes on,
People touch and they're gone
And you and I will never love again
Like we did then

Someday when we both reminisce
(We both say) We both say
There wasn't too much we missed
And through the tears
(And through the tears)
The smile when we recall
We had it all
For just a moment

Time goes on... Ahh...
People touch and then they're gone
But you and I will never really end
Will never love again...
Like we did then

We laugh until we had to cry
And we love right down to our last goodbye...

    we are first love when i was in HS. but i lost him thrice. but he said you never lose me. you are here in my heart. we both love each other but we have our own spouses already. but if we are meant for each other i believe it will happen.we just have to wait. we just can't forget each other. he said he has faith that it will happen and that i have to hang on to that faith. oh...so hard.

    This song really touch my heart. I met this filipino guy in my office in kuala lumpur where he was there for 3 months on special assignment. We have become so close and i have fall in love with him regardless of his warning not to fall for him because he's going back. In the end, he admit that he also felt something for me but he needs to go back to manila. It's really broke my heart. He gave me this song two weeks before he left and we danced together. I think i will never be able to forget him in this lifetime.

    For me this song emplies not all things that we have right now wud stay no matter how we hold on to things if they were not meant to be for us then we must learn to accept the fact that we have to let go

    What a beautiful song! This song reminds me about my first love, the most beautiful love i've ever felt. I lost her for over 15 years and recently we found each other again. I'll keep you forever in my heart, garnindia! :)
