I met you on a springtime day,
You were minding your life and I was minding mine too.
Lady, when you looked my way,
I had a strange sensation and Darling, that's when I knew...

That it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.

Oh, I wake up in the night,
And I reach beside me hoping you would be there.
But instead I find someone,
Who believed in me when I said I'd always care...

Oh, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.

So I'll live my life in a dream world,
For the rest of my days.
Just you and me walking hand in hand,
In a wishful memory...
Oh, I guess it's all that it will ever be...

I wish I had a time machine, I could,
Make myself go back until the day I was born.
Then I would live my life again,
And rearrange it so that I'd be yours from now on.

Oh, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.

Oh, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.

Oh, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.

Oh, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else,
When the right one comes along.

    So sad and yet so painfull, that's what i feel right now, we're both commited so we're trying to hide our feelings on ourselves... But everytime we see each other, the way we look and the way we smile at each other says it all...

    All your life, you've been waiting for somebody who will love you for real, but there was that point in our lives where we dreamed of being with prince charming. I guess all the girls out there, somehow, has asked for their prince charming. Then suddenly, there's this almost perfect boy next door (first love, crush, etc.). You were blinded by the looks, the charm, and everything about him for you, was perfect. So you went on having the best of your live being more than friends. But days, months, years have passed, you soon realized that the love you found was not a fairytale. You suddenly felt so incomplete. Then came along this guy whom you just met. Simple, nice to be with,. Everything you were looking to make your life complete is in him. By and by, you started to fall for the other guy. There's this feeling of being with him always. But you just can't. Why? It's simple. You're committed with another guy. The feeling of longingness to be with that other guy is unexplainable. But you just can't. Because you are already committed. It's really hard to be in this kind of situation. The debt of gratitude is holding you back. Just follow your heart. We only have a once in a lifetime gift. The gift of life. So, be yourself. Come out of that shell and be with the one you love.

    It's really hard to love somebody when you are already committed. So if I were you, don't rush on things. Think not only once, twice or thrice, but many times. Just settle for the one who makes you happy. Love the person completely despite of his imperfections. Because love is not about finding the perfect person, but loving him, despite his imperfections.

    His married but has been separated for 7 years... I loved him and his heart was mine but i dunno if he can be mine for real... He said he has plans for us and his working on it.. But how long will it take? Our love felt so right.. It's just that someone still owns him..
