David Foster – Just For A Moment lyrics

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...

    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.

    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.

    I just chatted with my sister, she's over 10, 000 of miles away - this song was playing the whole time, while we exchanged messages: I have never been touched so deeply before that I began to have tears in my eyes. You know, I have the best sister that one could ever wished for, I love her so much! She's one of the greatest blessings that I have received in my life, there's no precious gift as my sister, her name is Ivy. Thank you for giving me your time reading this. I wish you a happy life on this planet.
