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 say there is no reason for my fear
'Coz 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 every thought I might

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

Coz, I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I've started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Or come crashing 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 runnin' 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 window on a cold dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I every thought I might

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

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

    It's time to bring this ship into the shore
    And throw away the oars forever

    Is it finally time to give up singlehood and marry the woman who i've known for 3 years and is in love with me? This is the dilemma i face.

    Your feelings for a friend has grown stronger.. But you really cannot tell her coz you are afraid to lose her.. You know that you cant be together.. It will never happen, so whats the use of saying and ruining the friendship.. Things will never be the same if you say it to her.. Coz if you tell her and she doesnt want anything other than friendship, i dont think you should stay as friends, you cannot move on... But now you cannot help it, you just cannot fight it anymore..

    My soul mate of 5 years played this for me one night after he had drive 80 miles to find the cd. We had been friends for a long time and the night he played this changed my whole life. He recently passed away, but the memories of that night will live forever. This song will forever remain with me, as will he.

    Exact words that i'm going through right now.. You're not dumb, that's for sure.. But why can't you see me the way i'm seeing you? We've been close for more than 3 years now, didn't you feel how much you mean to me? I don't care about your past. All i care about is about us :(
