Somewhere Down The Road - Barry Manilow

To some, this is a love song but to our high school batch of 1993, this is our graduation song. Yes, 16 years ago, the "leaders" of our class decided this should be our graduation song perhaps because there were too few songs related to graduation to chose from during those days.

This would remain a love song for me but it would remind me of a dear friend - Agnes. This song would definitely always remind me of her because I've known her to be fond of love songs. I remember she was so happy when our class president announced that this would be our graduation song. This kinda tickled her heart which enabled her smile to shine the brightest when such announcement was made.

She is a very dear friend, very sweet, very thoughtful. I could hardly believe I was her friend. She would give me encouraging words, she made a poem for me, she is very open, she never fails to make me smile, she is everything a real friend could be. We still get in touch until today.

To all of you, maybe this song will really make a good graduation song... it is for me... because it reminds me of a friend like Agnes.

LYRICS OF SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD
We had the right love at the wrong time
Guess I always knew inside
I wouldn't have you for a long time
Those dreams of yours are shining on distant shores
And if they're calling you away, I have no right to make you stay

But somewhere down the road, Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when, but somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours will come to see
That you belong with me

Sometimes goodbyes are not forever
It doesn't matter if you're gone
I still believe in us together
I understand more than you think I can
You have to go out on your own
So you can find your way back home

And somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again, it doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road I know that heart of yours
will come to see that you belong with me

Letting go is just another way to say I'll always love you so

We had the right love at the wrong time
Maybe we've only just begun, maybe the best is yet to come

'Cause somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours will come to see
That you belong with me
