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.

    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.

    How I wish I could turn back the time when he has the courage to show his affections to me. I really regret the day I didn't gave him a chance to do so. And now, I am stuck in a relationship where happiness is nowhere to be found. I guess I had made the wrong choice to be with somebody I don't love anymore. I have had these regrets long time ago and it still keeps on haunting me even today. I wish I will be given a chance to be with the one I truly love. To the one who made me feel that I should free myself inside my own cage, thanks a lot for everything. We may never become a couple but I've enjoyed spending time with you. All my problems were easier to handle because your always in my side. I'm still glad that we hang out as friends even though I wanted us to be more than that.

    Well, I kept singing this song to my boyfriend for quiet some time now. We both know what this song really means. For him, whenever I sing the lines of sad to belong, he thinks that I am only joking. But sad to say, I mean it. I've been in love with another guy. He came into my life just in time when I needed someone whom I can share my problems with. But I can't be with this other guy. I badly want and need him. I'll just hope that someday, somehow, our paths will cross and we will be given a chance to be with each other. I'am always finding ways to notice flaws in my relationship with my boyfriend to be with the one I truly love by he (my boyfriend) could easily patch things up.

    It's not only sad but heartbreaking if you'll discover that the person you really want to be with, is not your boyfriend. Despite this, I am contented seeing the man I truly love happy. I know he is searching for the girl, who would love him for the rest of his life. I think he already found her but is hesitant due to the girl's attitude. But whatever it's, I'll continue to secretly love him against all odds. For he is my happiness and a confidant as well.

    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.
