Met you on a springtime day
You were mindin your life
And I was mindin mine, too

Lady when you looked my way
I had a strange sensation
And, darlin thats when I knew...

That its sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along,
Yes, its sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along.

Oh, I wake up in the night
And I reached beside me
Hopin you will be there

But instead I find someone
Who believe in me when I said
Id always care.

Oh its sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along,
Yes, its sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along.

So I lived my life in a dreamworld
For the rest of my days
Just you and me walkin hand in hand
In a wishful memory
Oh, I guess thats all
That it would ever be.

Wish I had a time machine
I could make myself go back
Until the day I was born,
And I would live my life again
and rearrange it so that Ill be
Yours from now on.

Oh its sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along,
Yes, its sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along.

    I was in my 40's, was in okay but boring marriage. Then I met him who was in the same boat. It's so sad to belong to someone else when the right one comes along. We met when we could, so painful. We lost each other when he moved and so did I. Found each other again, living in the same town, 10 years later, only blocks away. Still felt the same, we were much older, but wiser, stayed away from each other. Saw him again in the hospital, dying. He's gone now. I will never forget this song! I am 73 now but I have my memories and this song.

    I can actually relate with this song because he belongs to someone else now. It's just so sad knowing that person will never be mine so I lived my life in a dream world for the rest of my days. It hurts though but it will be more painful if I see him suffering because of the wrong decision that one day he'll soon regret.

    It's really a sad song, do we really need to fool ourselves and the one around us and keep on pretending that we really love the one we are with right now when the real truth is you really love somebody else? We only live once, do we need to waste this one chance to be true to ourselves and be happy or just be contended leaving in a dreamworld?

    That's when a man with a gun insist to marry you. Or your parents owed big amount of money to this man and as payment you are force to marry without love at all.
