[Alisha] The Friend That Once Loved Me [Original Song]

The Official Video (YouTube's playing up, so I have to link it)

Hello guys~ I'm back with another 'original' song, that technically isn't 'original',
since I didn't write the music myself... e.e
The music was originally the acoustic instrumental for YUI's 'TOKYO'.
However, I fell in love with it and decided to write my own piece to the music.
I'm really hoping I don't get copyrighted, but since I'm not trying to claim any credit for the music...
I only own the lyrics... And my vocals, of course. T-T

I feel that this piece is a lot more emotional than stuff I usually write, and I feel that I've managed to convey the feelings that I wanted to quite nicely through this song, so, over-all, I'm happy with it.
However, in regards to the recording, I need to re-do it at some point. For now, it's a 'trial'.
Because, I wasn't sure how well the song itself would turn out, so I threw-together a quick cover to test it, rather than spending hours mixing something that would just sound awful anyway. *shot*

Note about the song's origin:
The song tells a story of a girl whom had accidentally fallen in love with two people at the same time, at some point in her past. And, ultimately, had to choose between them. She made her decision, but is starting to feel that she made the wrong choice, and that the one she truly wants to be with is the friend that she left behind, someone that was always there for her, but only now is she starting to realize just how much he meant to her. Of course, a long time has passed since she made her choice, and the other guy has moved on and left her behind, so she's singing this song to him, knowing that he'll never have the chance to hear it, and that she's stuck with the guy she chose.

I, personally, am in a perfectly happy relationship right now, and I have been for a very long time, (13 months today, 'yo), and so the song's lyrics do not apply to me in any way... However, I've wanted to write a song about this kind of scenario for a long time, and finally, the right lyrics found their own way to me, and luckily, I thought to write them down...

So, without further ado... The lyrics are:


You stood beside me when no-one else would
And slowly took my shaking hand
You weren't afraid to tell me what you thought
Only you could truly understand

I found myself caught in this trap they call 'love'
And now, there's surely no way out
No where I could run now

Though I've told myself time and time again
What I chose was the best
I can't believe a single word that's said
No matter how many nights I have spent
Left unable to rest
Memories of you are all that I have left

So, before you fall in love
Make sure you only do it once
Or, you'll find yourself in the same mess

You took my hand when no-one was watching
We stood there, blushing in the sun
I thought that it could turn into something
I ruined things before they'd begun

A cowardly me would blame this thing on 'love'
And the choice I've made is done
There could be only one

Though I love him again and again
It is you who remains
Forever allowing my cruel heart to fray
And though I know that it should be him
That I dream of at night
Still, I think of you when I turn out the light

A dear friend I used to know
Had once loved me long ago
Now, it's me holding memories close

Though I've told myself time and time again
What I chose was the best
It's the only thing I'll let myself regret
If I could rewind time right now
I'd let us never have met
That way, our hearts would never have to fret

If I could choose to fall in love
I would've only done so once
And I would keep that dear person close
