  • Met you on a springtime day
    You were mindin' your 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 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 reach beside me
    Hopin' you will be there
    But instead I find someone
    Who believe in me when I said
    "I'd always care"
    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
    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
    Your's from now on
    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 Writer/s: RANDY GOODRUM
