I can't fight this feeling any longer.
And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow.
What started out as friendship,
Has grown stronger.
I only wish I had the strength to let it show.

I tell myself that I can't hold out forever.
I said there is no reason for my fear.
Cause I feel so secure when we're together.
You give my life direction,
You make everything so clear.

And even as I wander,
I'm keeping you in sight.
You're a candle in the window,
On a cold, dark winter's night.
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might.

And I can't fight this feeling anymore.
I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
It's time to bring this ship into the shore,
And throw away the oars, forever.

Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore.
I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
And if I have to crawl upon the floor,
Come crushing through your door,
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you.
I've been running round in circles in my mind.
And it always seems that I'm following you, girl,
Cause you take me to the places,
That alone I'd never find.

And even as I wander,
I'm keeping you in sight.
You're a candle in the wind,
On a cold, dark winter's night.
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might.

And I can't fight this feeling anymore.
I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
It's time to bring this ship into the shore,
And throw away the oars, forever.

Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore.
I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
And if I have to crawl upon the floor,
Come crushing through your door,
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

    I think its all about a guy who has fallen in love with his best friend. He's been afraid to tell her, and he finally has realized its her. She's the one for him. He has to finally tell her or risk losing her. What a wonderful song. This is exactly my story.

    Ahhh. This means so much pin to me.

    I can't fight this feeling any longer.
    And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow.
    What started out as friendship,
    Has grown stronger.
    I only wish I had the strength to let it show.
    Pano nga ba?. Hindi ko alam kung pano ko ba sasabihin sayo ung nararamdaman ko kahit anung iwas ung gawin ko hindi ko kaya lalo na lagi kitang nakikita. Ang hirap sa kaibigan ka pa nainlove dun pa sa taken at kung kelan may mahal ka na. Magulo diba pero bakit ganun. Nahihirapan ako. Ayokong makasakit kaya aun hanggang dedication nalang. Haist.
