Wish I could be the one
The one who could give you love
The kind of love you really need
Wish I could say to you
That I'll always stay with you
But baby that's not me
You need someone willing to give their heart and soul to you
Promise you forever, baby that's something I can't do
Oh I could say that I'll be all you need
But that would be a lie
I know I'd only hurt you
I know I'd only make you cry
I'm not the one you're needing
I love you, goodbye

I hope someday you can
Find some way to understand I'm only doing this for you
I don't really wanna go
But deep in my heart I know this is the kindest thing to do
You'll need someone who'll be the one that I could never be
Who'll give you something better
Than the love you'll find with me
Oh I could say that I'll be all you need
But that would be a crime
I know I'd only hurt you
I know I'd only make you cry
I'm not the one you're needing
I love you, goodbye

Leaving someone when you love someone
Is the hardest thing to do
When you love someone as much as I love you

Oh I don't wanna leave you
Baby it tears me up inside
But I'll never be the one you're needing
I love you, goodbye

Baby, it's never ganna work out
I love you, goodbye

    When you find someone... who can deeply connect to your soul, who can understand you even when u need not to say a word, who is not afraid to tell you something that may hurt because he wants to be honest with you in every way, who still stands by you even if he has seen you @ your worst of your weakness, who shows you his perspective of building a family, who sees his unborn children in your eyes... then he is made for you. Your relationship will be tested like how gold is tested by fire but be strong coZ you know there is no one else like him and he's all worth fighting for. Never aim for people to understand the kind of love you both have because some never will... you are the only one who knows what you feel, how you feel, and why you feel it. Time will prove that you are for each other when the world sees you happy and still together forever.

    To those who left a comment here, kindly read my advice:

    No one knows what will be happened into your life. Once you love someone, you know the possibilities, you know the risks and sacrifices about to happen. Its nice to know when you both love each other. But we cannot deny the fact that time will come to dare your relationship, to test how strong your faith and trust to one another. The hardest things to do is to let him/her free knowing that he/she could find happiness that he/she is looking for with somebody else. But you dont have to feel regrets, because it is not your loss. You make him/her to stay but still he/she wants to go, you did all the things to make him/her happy, but he/she didnt appreciate it...Those people are not worth to be loved. They dont have contentment in their lives. Common, stand up, failures are not there to make you weak instead, its there to make you strong, trials are the spices of our lives, without it, life could not be meaningful. So cheer up, life is the best things we have from our God. Maybe you failed this time, but on the other side, there would be a really good things awaiting for you...THE HAPPINESS THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR..

    very hard to loose someone if you really love him,but if you are not meant to for each other you cn't do anything to set him free.maybe there is someone who can give the more than he could gives you,more than he do,you have to accept the fact you hurt so much.but life is go on db?you dont deserve him .
