Lea Salonga – Friend Of Mine lyrics

(Odette quesada)

I've known you for so long
You are a friend of mine
But is this all we'd ever be?
I've loved you ever since
You are a friend of mine

And babe is this all we ever could be?

Refrain:
You tell me things I've never known
I shown you love you've never shown
But then again, when you cry
I'm always at your side
You tell me 'bout the love you've had
I listen very eagerly
But deep inside you'll never see
This feeling of emptiness
It makes me feel sad
But then again I'm glad

I've known you all my life
You are a friend of mine
I know this is how it's gonna be
I've loved you then and I love you still
You're a friend of mine
Now, I know friends are all we ever could be

You tell me things I've never known
I shown you love you've never shown
But then again, when you cry
I'm always at your side
You tell me 'bout the love you've had
I listen very eagerly
But deep inside you'll never see
This feeling of emptiness
It makes me feel sad
But then again
Then again
Then again I'm glad

    Its about loving a friend and would rather stay friends than loose a friendship. You can be seated right next to the person but they just seem so far away and you ask yourself is it worth chancing a relationship or loose a great friendship for good? Some things happens when its too late but then some gets second chances.

    For me this song is for those person who fell in love with there special friend. But then, they were afraid to confess there feelings. Cause if their going to admit it maybe they will loose the friendship. Coz I've already experienced it. I'd choose to keep it on my own for the sake of friendship. But every time we talked about the girl he loved I feel so sad. But I just listen very eagerly. So that he can say that he has a friend like me. And no matter what happen I'm just here at his side. And right now his very happy with his girlfriend and I need to be happy too. In order for me to moved on.

    This song reminds me of my friend but the last time we talked we didn't get along well, it's been severals months and I wonder how is she doing right now? Haven't heard form her since then. There are times I don't like the way she talked and treated me but a friend is always a friend. I care for her. Wherever she is, I hope she's still doing fine. She's a special friend.

    I stumble upon this song when I was streaming live on one of the filipino radio channel. This song is truly a testament to what is going on in my life at this moment. This song reminds me of the girl I used to (and still) have a crush on. I still remember vividly all the things we used to do together and with our other friends too. My friend and I would go to her house and we'll play guitar and sing a song to each other. We would hangout like there is no tomorrow. We would talk about our problems, laugh, joke and sing more. We were like brother and sister. However, at one point, I tried to follow my heart and wrote a letter (old school) to her expressing my feeling and I failed. At that moment, I realized that we will never be more than just friends. So I decided to move on with my life and she was one of the reason why I left my hometown because deep inside it hurts me seeing her with someone but i'll always tell her that I'm happy that she found someone she loves. To make the story short, I decided to go back to my hometown for a family reunion and had a chance to reunited with her. My heart was jumping up and down my chest when I first glance at her especially I haven't seen this girl for more than 20 years. I had mixed emotions when I looked at her. I was speechless! So invited her to have dinner with me one night and we've talked for hours like we used to. We told story about our past for the last 20 yrs. She told me that her son is my godson from her first marriage and he wanted to meet me. I was shocked but excited! That night brought back a lot of memories and heartaches because even after many years of no communication and not seeing her. I didn't expect to fall in love with her all over again!
    It was a struggle for me to ask her out again because she is married and I am committed with someone. I was so confused because my feelings for her grew stronger than ever. I find myself wanting to be with her more and more! So she agreed to go out again and for the first time, she told me how she truly felt about me then and now. I wanted to jump across the table and kiss her for the very first time but I couldn't move. All I could think of. She loves me too! It was one of the happiest night of my life!
    Sadly my vacation ended, we said goodbye to each other and promised that we will stay in touch. We agreed to respect our current relationship and be happy for each other. We believe that if we really meant for each other. We can wait and that only time can tell. I loved her then but I love her now more than ever.

    This is the song that i'll be singing together with my beloved siblings for their pahpah. I dedicate this song to him because this is how I feel everytime I think of him. Everytime I see him, I smile. Everytime I hear his voice, I listen. Everytime he sing, I feel every word he says. Everytime I talk to him, I can't help to smile even my heart is crying inside. I do love him for eternity even we're only friends now. I still and forever will love him for all of my life. .
