Somebody told me you were leavin'
I didn't know
Somebody told me you're unhappy
But it doesn't show
Somebody told me that you don't want me no more
So you're walkin' out the door
Nobody told me you've been cryin'
Every night
Nobody told me you'd been dyin'
But didn't want to fight
Nobody told me that you fell out of love from me
So I'm settin' you free

[Ref:]

Let me be the one to break it up
So you won't have to make excuses
We don't need to find a set up where
Someone wins and someone loses
We just have to say our love was true
But has now become a lie
So I'm tellin' you I love you one last time
And goodbye
Somebody told me you still loved me
Don't know why
Nobody told me that you only
Needed time to fly
Somebody told me that you want to come back when
Our love is real again

Let me be the one to break it up
So you won't have to make excuses
We don't need to find a set up where
Someone wins and someone loses
We just have to say our love was true
But has now become a lie
So I'm tellin' you I love you one last time
And goodbye

[Bridge:]

Just turn around and walk away
You don't have to live like this
But if you love me still then stay
Don't keep me waiting for that final kiss
We can work together through this test
Or we can work through it apart
I just need to get this off my chest
That you will always have my heart

Let me be the one

[Ref]

    Haha..kaiba ako sa inyong lahat..if you ask y? Because i Smile everytime i hear this song..Because this song inspired me to let go..to leave the Only person..the Only man I ever Wanted..=( Before I don't care for the people who cry for me..lagi akong nkakasakit until HE came... I want him so much..but things don't go on our way..i even fight for him..but im just a choice, it hurts but what can i do..He loves me and i love him but it's not yet our time..Kya sabi koh sa knya..maybe SOMEDAY!!! He just said..someday? Ryt..I know he understand what i mean..kung kme..kme..I don't believe in destiny but i do believe in us..In our LOVE,were to young to bind ourselves in what they call..LOVE,") I Love Him..i truly do but i must face the saddest part of loving him and that is to set him free..for him to grow..for him to enjoy his life and if the times comes nah maisip nyang ako tlga yung gusto nya then he may come and find his way back home ..I wait for you okay? I love you BOo..i already do and i will continue doing that..-Nica,")

    Everytime na marinig ko to... Lagi akong nalulungkot,, why? Dahil nakakarelate ako sa kantang to.. May isang tao akong naaalala at naalala ko rin ung mga happy moments namin na kailangan ko ng kalimutan... Pero dahil rin sa kantang to.. Nakaya kong magmove on... And i realize that it is life.. Lahat masasaktan pero sa bawat sakit na pagdadaan ng isang tao mayroong mga aral ang iiwan ito sa atin... Aral na magpapakita ng tunay nating pagkatao... We need to accept the reality... Kaya nga kht namay naaalala akong tao sa kantang ito... Favorite ko to... Dhil sa kantang ito naging matatatag ako..

    .. hahaii, ang sakit naman ng song... its the irony of life.. not all are really meant to stay and you can't do nothing but to let it go even though it hurts a 100x more...some people came in and out of our lives some leave us with a wounded heart but it doesnt meant that we dont deserve to be happy..it just manens that soneone is better for us we just nave to wait!!...you cant force somebody to be yours!! therefore and cant force HIM to be myn foreve!!! i really love this song!!

    ang kantang ito . pra sa mga nag lelet go .
    ang paglet go kasi sa isang tao may mga kadahilanan .
    katulad ko , nag let go aq , pero it does'nt mean na ndi q na mhal ung babaeng un o wala na syang halaga para sken .
    ac2ali sya ung inspiration q .
    haiss . bket ganito ang pagibig . ahehe . :/
    wew . anhirap tlga mka move on .

    brenntot.
