3rd Avenue – Why Can't It Be lyrics
You came along, unexpectedly
I was doing fine in my little world
Oh baby please don't get me wrong
'Cause I'm not complaining
But you see, you got my mind spinning

Refrain:
Why can't it be
Why can't it be the two of us
Why can't we be lovers
Only friends
You came along
At the wrong place, at the wrong time
Or was it me

Baby I dream of you every minute
You're in my dreams
You're always in it
That's the only place I know
Where you could be mine
And I'm yours (Baby I'm yours)
Only till I wake up

Refrain:
Why can't it be
Why can't it be the two of us
Why can't we be lovers
Only friends
You came along
At the wrong place, (you came along) at the wrong time
Or was it me

Refrain:
Why can't it be
Why can't it be the two of us
Why can't we be lovers
Only friends
You came along
At the wrong place, (you came along) at the wrong time
You came along at the wrong place
At the wrong time
Or was it me (Or was it me)

Why can't it be...

    Its sad talaga when you have a change of heart and you don't even have the courage to fight for the new founded love just because di mo kayang saktan yung taong sobrang nagmamahal sayo.
    Even though how much you love the other girl and you know she loves you too, di pwedeng maging kayo, because you are committed to someone else. Kahit na alam mong di ka na masaya, you have to sacrifice your own feelings. And the saddest part of it, you're also hurting the one you really love and you doest even have a chance to show how much you love her and how broked you are not having her in your life. Why can't it be?

    Why can't it be? Bakit huli ang lahat ng makilala kita. You have a gf now. I know kahit di mo sabihin na you feel something between us pero ramdam yun ng puso ko sa tuwing mag. Kasama tayo. Hindi man pwedeng maging tayo ngayon baka sa ibang panahon tayo na ang nakala. An sa isa't-isa. Maybe you were right. We've met and get along with but its too late for everything we've felt. You came at the wrong place and at the wrong time or was it me :(

    Haist! "why cant it be the two us? " it so sad to know that the person who you really love, cannot be really yours! Huhuhu I just met this man, & I really like him, but his 12 years older than me. & it seems that there's no "us" because there's so many hindrances. Just when I thought that I already found the right man, he can never be mine for now. Hope everything will change, in the right time. I'm still positive ^_^.

    Why can't be the two of us. Bkit nga ba hindi na lang tayong dalawa. Bakit ba huli na ang lahat nung makilala kita. Sinabi ko sayo ang totoo na my asawa ako pero hindi kami kasal. Sinabi mo sakin wala kang ka relasyon. Umasa ako. Sobrang sakit. Pag sinasabi mo sakin na mgkasama kayo. Hindi ako mapakali ewan ko kung bakit? Hindi ko masabi sayo na mahal kita kahit alam kong mali.

    Mabuti nga kayo malayang mag isip ang taong mahal nyo, eh ang taong mahal ko walang freedom na gawin ang gusto nya kc seminarian sya,. Hindi ko maamin na mahal ko sya kc ayoko na dahil sa pag amin ko eh dun mawawala lahat ng pinaghirapan nya, pinipigilan ko ang sarili ko na mahalin sya, pero habang pinipigilan ko, mas lalong lumalalim, kayo nakakasama nyo ang mahal nyo sa buhay, ako hindi, handa akong hintayin sya hangang sa araw na makatapos sya at sana ipaglaban nya ang nararamdaman nya, dahil ako, kayang kaya kong maghintay kahit gaanu katagal bastat sa huli maging kami. Pero paanu? Hindi nga pwede kasi hindi sya malaya, ilang taon nalang magiging pari na sya, panu kung sabihin ko na mahal na mahal ko sya, at magulo ang isip nya, tapos ako ang pinili nya pero hindi naman bukal sa isip nya na ako ang mas matimbang, mas mahirap saakin tangapin na ako ang pipiliin nya ngunit hindi naman sya magiging masaya saakin pag naging kami, mas gugustohin ko nalang na itago ang nararamdaman ko kahit sobrang nasasaktan na ako, kung talagang mahal din nya ako, sya mismo magsasabi at aamin na ako ang gusto nyang makasama, mas magiging makasalana sya kung pari na sya tapos magigign kami balang araw.
    Sa puro at isip ko, ikaw lang, mahal na mahal kita eec.

    This song reminds me so much of someone I really love. Actually, it only started with a joke when I first saw him. I said "pwede n" without even thinking that I will be deeply attached with him later. Now, I don't know what I'm gonna do because I can't imagine myself being with other man. He's the only one I want to be with for the rest of my life. I'm trying to be open and give chance to others who show their love to be but I just can't bear with it. Ganito pala talaga pagnagmahal ka ng totoo. He's actually kidding me n kami nalang daw since he's also single at present but I just don't know if he's sincere with it. Some of my friends actually say that they notice that he likes me. How I wish that's true and I want to believe that but I don't want to expect so much because that would just cause me so much pain if what I expected is not actually true. How I hate this feeling!

    Hiasstt. I really love this song because this song is reminds me of someone I think I truly loved!. But we can't it be because we're both committed. I have my boyfriend for 7yrs. And the worst is he's married. We really love each other and we can't fight this feeling anymore! But we both know that our loved for each other is so much wrong!. So sad because we're only boyfriend girlfriend we can't be as one! We can't be a husband and wife! , we can't be till death do us part! Hu. -=love you marison 21=-

    My bf and I been together for 2 and a half years, then I have a friend of mine who is very close to my ♥. I love my bf so much. Yet this friend of mine keep telling me and shows me that he loves me too even though he knew that I have a bf. And I think I'm falling for him. Its not fair for my bf. And I think its time to let him go and set him free. Until I decided to stop communicating with my friend. "he came a long at the wrong place, at the wrong time... or was it me..."

    Hart y can't "WE" be? I don't know why I have this intense feeling towards you! I have loved you since I first met you! You are always in my mind every minute of my life. When I see you in facebook, when I text you & when I buzz you on ym and you don't have any respond, you don't know how painful it is to me. I don't mind if you only wanna play with me, but I will be the happiest person in d world when you once spend your day with me. But now your so far away with me, I guess I will just wait for a genie to come out of his bottle to make my great dream come true. But that's only a fairytale, so I guess I will be waiting for nothing. I miss you so very much! I love you only in my own world!

    Why can't it be? Why can't it be the two of us? Its sad to love someone na committed na sa iba. And the saddest part is you need to let go and sacrifice your own feelings para na rin sa nakakarami. Kahit na alam mong hindi ka masaya and the saddest part of it is pareho kayong masasaktan. :(
    -bakit ba kasi? Why can't it be the two of us? Mahal naman natin ang isa't isa. Sana tayo nalang. Sana tayo nalang ulit. Pero ang hirap na ng sitwasyon natin committed na ako sa iba at marami na tayong masasakatan. Ayoko sanang gawin but I need to let you go and also my feelings for you. Mahal kita pero you came along at the wrong place at the wrong time. Or was it me? Iloveyou Goodbye ehb.

    Khulet'z coh, why can't it be the two of us? Sana kaya ko pang ibalik yung time na tayo pa. Pero pano pa ngayon? Committed na ko sa iba. Mahal kita khulet'z kahit na alam kong mali na magmahalan pa ulit tayo. Mas mahirap magpanggap na hindi kita mahal. Nung sinabi mo sakin na mahal mo parin ako sobrang saya ko nun pero may takot kasi alam ko sa huli at sa pangalawang pagkakataon masasaktan lang ulit tayo. Sabi mo kahit na committed ako hindi ka mawawala sa tabi ko pero hindi naman ako sanay na pati ikaw nasasaktan ko. Why can't be lovers only friends? It kills me inside khulet'z ko. Sana ikaw nalang. Sana tayo nalang bhebhe ko. Mahal na mahal kita kahit ang sakit2 na.

    Babe I Love You Very Much, I cannot show you how I really love you co'z I think it's unfair to you. You know from the that I'm married and your getting married, ayoko mging hadlang s kaligayan mo at mas lalong ayoko mkasakit. Much better n ako nlang ang masaktan kesa ikaw. Ngayon mo lang ako nkilala in wrong time ang place, but you make feel important and be loved. Kung ako lang tatanungin mo ayoko makasal k gusto ko skin k nlang. Nung cnbi mo n love mo ko I know you really love me, pero cnbi ko p din sau n ituloy mo ung kasal mo at ibgay mo s mpapangasawa mo yang puso mo n buong buo. Masakit para skin ung cnbi ko pero alam ko yun un tama. I really love you babe, if time comes n ikasal k, magging masaya ako s inyo. Kakayanin ko babe. Cguro hndi lang ako ready pag nwala k skin ng bigla, kahit makita lang kita ok n skin un hangang makalimutan n kita. But for now I want to be with spend time with you kc pg kinasal k n, I never be with you. I love you babe!

    He came to me in an unexpected circumstance. I have my own life until the time I met him. I thought everything was enough but when we met I felt I'm willing to be him through the fire, He also has his own world, a world that is different from mine. He conveyed he can't reciprocate my feelings for him, it hurts coz I'm, willing to give up my family for him.(angel).
