Quotes: Childhood Friend Romance

Unlucky Childhood Friends subtrope:

At all the silly things we did

If this is love, it breaks my heart!

Sowing teardrops in the snow

That I've know you too long for us to have a thing.

just treat me as your most precious.

It is you I have loved all along

I know we've been
Friends forever
But now I think I'm feeling something totally new
And after all this time
I've opened up my eyes and now I see
You were always with me
Could it be you and I
Never imagined
Could it be suddenly I'm fallin' for you
Could it be you were right here beside me and I never knew
Could it be that it's true
It's you and it's you

That I have hoped for

Means so much more
Now we can be
Together forever
Forever just you and me
Be here for you
You here for me
