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

    haaayyy, tagos..heheheh..hmm, ngayon ko lang napansin ang meaning ng song na to'..hmm, so hirap talaga sobra, na mainlab sa bestfriend mo..kagaya ko, ganito sitwasyon ko ngayon..matagal na kong inLove sa bestfriend ko, pero di nya pa rin napapansin..4 years na kaming magbestfriend,since nung una pa lang may feelings na ko sa kanya..ang hirap..di ko mapakita sa kanya kung ano gusto kong gawin, kasi pinipigilan ko sarili ko kasi baka mahalata niya..baka kasi pagnalaman nya,umiwas na sya, at iwanan nya ko..huhu, yoko nun..pero kami as friend, we are sweet and taking care for each other...parang di lang as best friends..maraming nakakapansin samin na parang di lang friend ang turingan namin sa isa't-isa, parang may sumthing naman daw kaso lang pinipigilan lang namin ang isa't-isa kasi dahil mgbestfriend nga kami, pero mahal talaga namin ang isa't-isa, wala nga lang malisya, pero for him lang, sakin talaga meron...hmm, kaso masakit kasi nun, may mahal syang iba ngayon...haayy, di ko nga lam kung ano gagawin ko..baka magsisi ako sa huli..pano ba?..sabihn ko ba o hindi?haayy..

    sobrang sarap daw kung kayo ang magkakatuluyan ng bestfriend mo sa huli...haayy, sana nga..

    im still waiting for him, kahit alam kong matagal pa..

    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..

    Haiii.. Sobrang sakit ang mainlove ka sa bestfriend mo.:'(
    Halos 3 years kong mahal bestfriend ko, Nung nalamn niya.. Lumayo siya. Masakit pa dun, nilalayo niya sarili niya saken..
    Sobrang masakit ang magmahal.. Sa totoo lang, hindi naman mawawala yun.. Tingin ko nga, sa lahat ng mga tao diyan na minahal ang bestfriend nila.. ako ang pinaka malas.. Iba ang inisip niyang dahilan ng paglapit saken.. ang hindi niya alam dun siya mas naging malapit sa puso ko.. Sa totoo lang, gusto ko siyang burahin sa buhay ko.. Pero siya ang pinakaunang taong minahal ko sa buhay ko, Masakit.. Kaya sa totoo lang, hanggang ngayon.. Nahihirapan akong kalimutan siya. Iba ang pagmamahal na pang kapatid at pagmamahal na tunay. At ngayon, na hindi na kame nagkikita, this time.. I hope he'll realize my importance, You left a hole in my heart..:'(, But still... I loved you. It's time for me to move on with my life... I will move on.. Pero, malaking bahagi ka ng buhay ko, Even though it hurts alot...

    I'm glad that you.. atleast ONCE CAME IN MY LIFE...
    Minahal kita...:'(

    ...:((
