Met you on a springtime day
You were mindin' you life
And I was mindin mine, too
Lady when you looked my way
I had a strange sensation
And, darlin' that's when I knew...

(That/Oh) it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along,
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along.

Oh, I wake up in the night
And I reached beside me
Hopin' you will be there
But instead I find someone
Who believe in me when I said
"I'd always care."


So I lived my life in a dreamworld
For the rest of my days
Just you and me walkin' hand in hand
In a wishful memory
Oh, I guess that's all
That it would ever be.
Wish I had a time machine
I could make myself go back
Until the day I was born,
And I would live my life again
And rearrange it so that I'll be
Yours from now on.

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is clearly stated. But, it is true for so many and so sadly beautiful.

    MemoryYes, and right around the time I first heard this song, I was in that exact situation. I had found my soul-mate (trite but so true) in my 15th year of marriage to another. She felt the same, but her husband had (has) a debilitating illness and she felt she needed to stay with him. Unfortunately, I did get divorced and much later re-married but not to her.

    Even now, 21 long years later, we still speak and, while we both try to keep the regrets out of our voices, the longing is still there. I love my wife (which is more than she can say about her husband) and I will not hurt my wife. So, I think about her daily, and wait...
