I've known you for so long
You are a friend of mine
But is this all we'd ever be?
I've loved you ever since
You are a friend of mine
But babe, is this all we ever could be?

You tell me things I've never known
I've shown you love you've never shown
But then again, when you cry
I'm always at your side
You tell me 'bout the love you've had
I listen very eagerly
But deep inside you'll never see
This feeling of emptiness
It makes me feel sad
But then again I'm glad

I've known you all my life
You are a friend of mine
I know this is how it's gonna be
I've loved you then and I love you still
You're a friend of mine
Now, I know friends are all we ever could be

You tell me things I've never known
I've shown you love you've never shown
But then again, when you cry
I'm always at your side
You tell me 'bout the love you've had
And I listen very eagerly
But deep inside you'll never see
This feeling of emptiness
It makes me feel sad

But then again
Then again
Then again I'm glad

    Yap sometimes the more you confide each other the more chances na mag ka developan tlga kayo., masarap masaya pero syempre mahirap lalo na pag din kayo pwede sa isa't isa. It's hard to hide those feeling lalo na kung di mo nman alm kung mhal ka rin nya, sometimes nag aasume k lang or pwede ring may feelings din sya sayo, pero dahil sa npaka complicated na para sa inyo, you're trying to pretend nlng na there's no something special between you and him.

    Its when you have this very good friend. Where you share times together. Where you listen to every word he says. The problems and fears he had to face --- that you are there to comfort him in every way. It is when you give up everything you have. Every dream you have. Just to make him be you first priority. When you give him the material things he had longed to have. When you make love to him knowing that there are no commitments after living the room. When you always listened and read his sms everyday. Not knowing one day he has to leave you for he is now in love with someone else.
    Yes it hurts. But you must have to understand that you are just friends. Since the start, now and forever.

    I've been loving my best friend for a couple of years I'm the only one who knew it all this time because he's the boy friend of my close friend (well they broke up allready) still nobody knew that I love him. My close friemd cann't move on she still love the person that iam also loving all this years, I don't want to hurt my close friend at the same time I don't want to break my heart into pcs. I though that it is already enough to be happy for the both of them but I can't go through it, I think it will just be worst if I will tell that I love him untill now iam still loving him but I'm no longer hoping to know what he feels about me. I'm not the type of person who believes in fairy tales in happly ever after story but I'm the girl who believe about past is already past it does no longer affect your life anymore but why is it I can't forget him why I'm still loving and still looking forward to be happy with him, to hold on together.

    Nung huli mo akong niyakap, sobrang na feel ko yung pagmamahal mo. Nandun yung caring. Sobrang nagulat ako nung hawakan mo ang kamay ko. Tinignan ko ang mga mata mo. Gusto ko sanang tanungin kung may gusto kang sabihin. Pero di ko magawa baka ma frustrate lang ako. You're morethan friend to me. Cguro nga tlgang friend yung love ko sayo. Sobra lang tayong naging attached sa isat' isa. Kya sobrang sakit nung nagpaalm kana. Sana nagkaroon pa tayo ng mahabang oras para nakapag usap. Anyway ilang beses ko na rin nman nasabi kung gano ka kaimportante sa kin. At gano kita kamahal. Ang hindi ko lang makakalimutan. Yung araw n hawak mo ang aking kamay na sobrang higpit.
