Under the silver stars,
Right where he broke your heart.
Girl you know, I'd give you anything.
I wanna hold your hand,
And say the words he never said.
I'll make you promises you can believe.

[Chorus]
Let me be the one,
Telling you it's alright
Sharing the smiles and tears you cry.
Let me be the one,
Loving you when you're weak.
For all of the strength you need,
You can come to me.

When you're down and you feel so lonely
Turn around, you can come to me
When you're down baby, i will be the only
Come to me

You can just be yourself,
'Cause I don't want nobody else.
All of your secrets are safe with me, yeah,
For the kind of love you can trust,
For more than just a crush,
Baby, why don't you just come to me?

[Chorus]
Let me be the one,
Telling you it's alright
Sharing the smiles and tears you cry.
Let me be the one,
Loving you when you're weak.
For all of the strength you need,
You can come to me.

When i've got you in my arms (got you in my arms)
Say it's where you wanna be (where you wanna be, yeah)
'Cause girl i'm down on my knees
Promising my heart oh, my heart

[Chorus]
Let me be the one,
Telling you it's alright
Sharing the smiles and tears you cry.
Let me be the one, (let me be the one)
Loving you when you're weak.
For all of the strength you need,
You can come to me.

Telling you it's alright
Sharing the smiles
Sharing the smiles
Sharing the smiles, baby

Let me be the one,
Loving you when your weak,
For all of the strength you need,
You can come to me

Whenever you need me, oh (always here)
Whenever you need me, girl
Whenever you need me, oh (right here)
Oh, I'll be there
Whenever you need me, oh (treat you)
Whenever you need me, girl
Whenever you need me, oh
Oh, I'll be there
Reach out, reach out, reach out for me...

    1988 Gerald was my first love, but I was young then, I want to fly, I enjoy and was blinded with so much can offer and forgot the one that matters. When I turn around he was gone, I looked for him to tell him that I love him, but I cannot find him anymore. Years pass and I've heard that he was crushed because of me, he ruin his life and it's all my fault. I try to make the best of my life but not a day pass that I did not think of him, all I wanted was to say I'm sorry, but I never got the courage. 21 years later I found him but were both married now, he say he marries her because she helped him picked up the pieces, and I told him that I marry mine because he was the best that ever happen to my life after him. Instead of I'm sorrys we found out that were still in love, crazy thoughts came up to our head, but now is not a time for us, we will be hurting the people that mean so much to us, we have been planning of running away to continue the love we once shared, but Its not right. I think one day there will be us, Gods will. But as of this moment, I want to tell him I love him so much but as for now let's live our lives and try not to make another mistake.
