Michael Martin Murphey – Maybe This Time lyrics

Two old friends meet again
Wearin' older faces
And talk about the places they've been

Two old sweethearts who fell apart
Somewhere long ago
How are they to know
Someday they'd meet again
And have a need for more than reminiscin'

Maybe this time
It'll be lovin' they'll find
Maybe now they can be more than just friends
She's back in his life
And it feels so right
Maybe this time, love won't end

It's the same old feeling back again
It's the one that they had way back when
They were too young to know when love is real
But somehow, some things never change
And even time hasn't cooled the flame
It's burnin' even brighter than it did before
It got another chance, and if they take it...

Maybe this time
It'll be lovin' they'll find
Maybe now they can be more than just friends
She's back in his life
And it feels so right
Maybe this time, love won't end

She's smilin' like she used to smile way back then
She's feelin' like she used to feel way back when
They tried, but somethin' kept them
Waiting for this magic moment

Maybe this time
It'll be lovin' they'll find
Maybe now they can be more than just friends
She's back in his life
And it feels so right

Maybe this time...

Maybe this time
Maybe this time love won't end

    10 years ago college days we were friends. Our own circle of friends would even tease us even until we graduated that we were more than that, but we are not. Then we lost our communication. 10 years later we met again and somehow maybe our friends were correct back then that maybe we do really have feelings for each other. We are still both single but have been to many failed relationships. Then who knows whatever it is, this would finally decide what would really become of our fate.

    This song really fits me and my lover. We had same feelings when we were still in 1st year hs. We were too young to know when love is real. He transferred to other school, after then we didn't see each other anymore. 17 had passed. Now we meet each other again. It is hard for us to let each heart's go. But the problem is we are now both married to different persons. :(.

    This song, "maybe this time.. " it reminds me about my first love, 9 years ago, I fell in love with this guy, anjuval dantes, and yes he did too. But he was too shy to let me know what he feels. Until the time comes, that he left. After 9 years, someone messaged me on a social networking site, for 9 years all he did was look for me, his first love. And now, he became my best friend. We're hanging out together and have fun. We're making the best out of it, cos of 9 years being away. And right now, we're totally planning to get married after 5 years, I've never been this happy since he came. Destiny is real. We must believe in it.

    We used to be the best of friends for 10 years. Unintentionally, we fell in love with each and had this affair when we about to graduate in college. I had to end that foolishness even it really broke my heart for the sake of my studies and future. I just hope that when we meet again, I won't feel the same deep feeling of love anymore because I am now committed and will have a family.

    13 years ago. We broke up. After that, I have no news about her, not even a single letter. We live our own lives separately. I married a girl I didn't love. After 13 long years we finally met each other again. She is married but also to a man she did'nt love. The same old feeling back again. Maybe even more intense and expressive because we were much older now. After 13 years. Truly even time hasn't cool the flame. Love you janice santos 07042011.
