Can We Still Be Friends by Mandy Moore




***Just sharing this very cute yet meaningful song by Mandy Moore, a remake of Todd Rungren's song. It's sad for love stories to end but I also believe that some former lovers can also be the best of friends, if only we keep an open mind.


All's well that ends well :)***

We can't play this game anymore, but
Can we still be friends?
Things just can't go on like before, but
Can we still be friends?


We had something to learn
Now it's time for the wheel to turn
Things are said one by one
Before you know it's all gone


Let's admit we made a mistake, but
Can we still be friends?
Heartbreak's never easy to take, but
Can we still be friends?


It's a strange sad affair
Sometimes seems like we just don't care
Don't waste time feeling hurt
We've been through hell together


La la la la, la la la la
Can we still be friends?
Can we still get together sometime?


We awoke from our dream
Things are not always what they seem
Memories linger on
It's like a sweet sad old song

TIME

TODAY WILL BECOME YESTERDAY TOMORROW
WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE NEXT DAY NOBODY KNOWS
THE SEED THAT YOU HAVE PLANTED WILL SOON GROW
CHERISH EVERY MOMENT AND GO WITH THE FLOW

LEAD YOUR OWN LIFE, YOU HOLD YOUR OWN CLOCK
MOVE FORWARD, DO NOT BE STUCK LIKE A ROCK
THE SUN WILL SET BUT SOON WILL RISE
TIME PASSES BY RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES

YOUR DREAMS LIE ON YOUR HANDS
YOU CAN BUILD YOUR OWN CASTLE OF SAND
OPEN YOUR EYES TO A CLEARER VIEW
THAT WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE PROFOUND AND NEW

YOU ARE A HUMAN WITH SO MUCH CAPACITY
 YOU KNOW THE MEANING OF DIGNITY AND INTEGRITY
YOU KNOW HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE GOOD FROM BAD
BECAUSE YOU RE CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD

EVERYBODY IS GIVEN THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF TIME
TO BE KNOWN AND FAMOUS, THE OPPURTUNITY TO SHINE
THE TIME TO LEARN FROM MISTAKES, TO BE DOWN FOE A WHILE
BUT AFTER ALL THAT, YOU AR BOUND TO TRAVEL A THOUSAND MILE

“TIME IS GOLD”, WHAT PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY
IF YOU ARE YOUNG, ENJOY BEING YOUTH AND PLAY
LOOK AT THE BRIGHTER SIDE OF LIFE AND DO NOT BE DISMAY
FOR THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A BRAND NEW DAY

HOLD ON TO WHAT YOU HAVE
BUT STILL AIM FOR THE NEXT LEVEL
TAKE THE STEPS ONE AT A TIME
AND ENJOY EVERY MOMENTS LIKE RIDDLES THAT RHYME

New Version of Me

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN I FELT DREADFUL
BECAUSE LIFE SEEMS SO SOROWFUL
BUT THEN I WOKE UP FEELING BRAND NEW
THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN I DON’T FEEL SO BLUE

I TOLD MYSELF TO BE JUST SIMPLY ME
AND I ASKED MYSELF; CAN I BE THE NEW VERSION OF ME?
THEN I REALIZE THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH ME
BECAUSE GOOD AND POSITIVE THINGS ARE WHAT I SEE

LOVE

IT’S YOU AND YOUR LOVE THAT SETS ME FREE
THE ONE WHO GIVES ME HAPPINESS AND GLEE
THE ONE WHO KEEPS ME STURDY LIKE A TREE
THE ONE ONE WHO KEEPS ME CALM LIKE A CUP OF TEA

THIS LOVELY FEELING DEEP WITHIN
IS THE REASON THAT KEEPS ME SMILING
THAT WHICH MENDED MY BROKEN HEART AND SPIRIT
IT PAVED THE WAY FOR A FRESH START

YOU ARE ONE OF THE  REASON
THAT MADE ME LOOK AT LIFE WITH SO MUCH APPRECIATION
THE ONE WHO PROVIDED ME AN INSPIRATION
THE ONE WHO GAVE MY LIFE RHYTHM AND MOTION


I AM GRATEFUL THAT I HAVE FOUND YOU
BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT ME THAT LIFE IS TRUE
YOU TURNED MY SKIES INTO LIGHTER BLUE
ONCE AGAIN ALLOW ME THANK YOU
