We often fool ourselves
And say that it's love
Only cause when it's gone
We end up being lonely
So how are we to know
That it just isn't so
That we just have to let each other go

There were many times
When we shared precious moments
But later realized
They were only stolen moments
So how are we to know
That it just wasn't so
That we just had to let each other go

CHORUS:
If loving you is all that means to me
When being happy is all I hope you'd be
Then loving you must mean
I really have to set you free


Each day we meet my love for you
Keeps growing stronger
But everytime we meet
Makes leaving you so much harder
So how are we to know
That this just wasn't so
That we just have to let each other go

CHORUS:
If loving you is all that means to me
When being happy is all I hope you'd be
Then loving you must mean
I really have to set you free

BRIDGE:
Letting go is not an easy task
When smiling feels like I must wear this lonely mask
It hurts deep inside
And I just cannot hide
That there's anguish at the thought
That we should have to part

CHORUS:
If loving you is all that means to me
When being happy is all I hope you'd be
Then loving you must mean
I really have to set you free
If loving you is all that means to me
When being happy is all I hope you'd be
Then loving you must mean
I really have to set you free

    The first time I saw her, I thought it was love at first sight. I had her so many times and I thought it was forever and endless. I was wrong to believe that the relationship we had was something to hold on to. That we could grow and be more happier each day. I decided let love go and let her be on her way to whatever she likes to be.

    I felt guilty for what happen. Pero desisyon nya yun. Eventhough n mahal p kita I had to let you go. Mahirap man tanggapin na hindi mo na ako mhal kkyanin ko. Hindi na ko aasa pa na mahalin mo p ngah ako. Dahil pagktpos ntin parang hindi mo ko minhal, parang nasayang lang yung mga panhon n pinagsamhan natin. Pero para sakin isa na yung kayaman na habang buhay kong alalahanin. Walang mkkpalit sa tayo mo dito sa puso ko. Magmahal man uli ako, ssiguraduhin ko na iba yun kesa sa sayo.

    For me, this song means having right love at wrong time that leads to letting go. The love was there. The magic was there. The spark was still there. It's just that due to unavoidable circumstances, we have to let go of someone so close to our heart not because we doesn't love him or her but because it's the right thing to do.
    The line, "there were many times when we shared precious moments, but later realized they were only stolen moments," signifies that when you love someone what matters most is the "moment"-the "now. " so for those who are in love out there, just treasure every moment and face the day when you have to let go this "someone. " for those who our "out" love, don't be afraid to fall in love and get hurt again because life without love and pain is worthless.
    _treseh_.

    Letting go of that person you love the most is the hardest thing to do. After all those times you spent with each other, the plans for the future, the sweet and bitter moments, the challenges you surpassed, all the love you shared, it's hard to accept that you will just end up being back to friends. But that's love. Nothing is certain in this world. Everything ends. So treasure every moment and live everyday as if it was your last! : c

    Para saken its not easy to let go of someone you love. Lalo na kung nakikita mo siya lagi. Ang hirap kaya non. Pero kung kinakailangan tlga na yun ang gawin mo no choice ka kesa naman magtiis ka nlang na ikaw lagi ang nsa2ktan. Parang ako dami ko na ginawang effort para di siya mwala saken pero hbang nkikita ko na wala siyang pakialam sa mga gingwa ko mas pinili kong pakawalan nlang siya dhil alam ko lalu lang akong msasaktan. Dun siya msaya eh. Kya masay na rin ako para skanya but it doesn't mean na hindi ko na siya mahal. I set him free but I'm still hoping that he will come back to me soon. :(
