It's funny when you find yourself
Looking from the outside
I'm standing here
But all i want is to be over there
Why did i let myself believe
That Miracles could happen
Cause now i have to pretend
That i don't really care

I thought you were my fairytale
My dream when i'm not sleeping
A wish upon a star that's coming true
But everybody else could tell
That i confused my feelings with the truth
When there was me and you

I swore i knew the melody
That i heard you singing
And when you smiled
You made me feel
Like i could sing along
But then you went and changed the words

Now my heart is empty
I'm only left with used-to-be's
And once upon a song

Now i know you're not a fairytale
And dreams are meant for sleeping
Cause wishes on the star
Just don't come true
And now even i can tell
That i confused my feelings with the truth
Because i liked the view
When there was me and you

I can't believe that i could be so blind
It's like you were floating
When i was falling
And i didn't mind
Because i like the view
Oooh hoo hoo
I thought you felt it too
When there was me and you

    i wished for one year to the stars still she wont come
    I hardly miss our maid she had been everything to me all my life
    she was there when I am all alone and she she was there in every single corner and second of my life she always supported me
    anytime
    everywhere
    she was my fairytale
    i dreamed that she will come
    but dreams are just for sleeping
    and it did
    this song was very dedicated to my beloved maid
    Erlaine Gela Gequiniana
    and me
    Mary Christelle Geronimo
    I always had a nightmare every night
    I cant sleep sometimes
    and sometimes i almost didnt wake up for 5 days at the 4th night at last i woke up and when i woke up i was in trauma for 7 months
    how bad is it
    it happened 3 times and that was my
    maids name 3 names


    my mother said I was too young to experience a terrible thing like this she begged for our maid to come back but no luck it was my seventh birthday i saw our maid I kept chasing her but she cant reach me she was asking for help
    they thought I was crazy cause they saw nothing I am the only one one who saw it until i stopped wishing cause it was now impossible the are in ilo ilo this time it was worst than ever they said i have been in comma
    in 1 year And to everyone read this please add Erlaine Gela Giquiniana
    in facebook and say "pls. come back to your old friend Mary Christelle Geronimo" please support me and dont tell her what happened

    'when there was me and you' is a song about when you're trying to prove to yourself that you've moved on somehow, and that the past could be forgotten. It also means that when an incident occurs that could prove your love wrong, all could change. Even if the relationship was built for more than years, one wrong move could change everything :))

    For me, this song can relate so much to my life right now. The guy i'm with, we're not meant to be. I'm not supposed to be with him. But i we still go on loving each other. And lately, i realize that i shouldn't be taking this all seriously because, yeah, he is sweet to me, but not only to me, if you guys get it :>
