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

    This song just shows that it is never too late to find the love that was lost a long time ago. No matter how many times two people have been kept apart, how many years have passed and how much difficult it seems; love will, and always will, find a way.

    This song reminds me of my childhood sweetheart. We see each other during summer days way back in elementary. We play together. We made happy days. Though we didn't know much about love because we were too young then. All we know is that we are happy when we are together. But time changes things. We parted ways as he went in high-school & I was still in elementary. Time ran so fast & we didn't see each other. I was forgotten I guess. He event went to another country to be with his mom. We had our own lives. I am now a single mom. Just last year I have found out that he is back home but he has already a girlfriend. I saw him in front of their house one day, fixing something. The old feelings I had is back. My heart was beating so fast. But I don't know if he remembers me. Because I am now a grown up woman. Not that young girl with a very long hair & always in braids. I know & still hoping that Love will win over. No matter how long we've been apart, no matter who we have been with, maybe now is the time. maybe now we can be more than just friend & continue what we had back when we were young.

    I had this girl way-back before college her name was abby and yhap I'm his bf way-back and then love didn't work out that time until after 4 years we've met again, were both reminiscing the past every places we've been and visited and a lot of stories to tell. When we met again unexpectedly I realize she was my one true love. I hope and I pray that abby and me will be together. If there will come a time, if I'm gonna have my chance again I'll Promise to be the right man for her, I'll promise to take care of her always and forever.

    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.

    2 old friends havent seen each other for a long time, maybe if they will meet again by destiny, they could be more than just friends. I hope this will happen to me. I miss my friend im inlove before.. But not almost 5 years w/out communication.
