I have loved you for so long
I tried to hide it but the feeling is too strong
I know angel that loving you is wrong
But what can I do if you are my heart's only song 

Would it be better if I just forget about you?
Tell myself to stop feeling the way I do
Go out with other girls, try to find someone new
Convince myself that I could still find love that is true 

Would your life be better if I just stay away?
Tell me dear and your wishes I will obey
I will do whatever you want, whatever you say
Even if having a broken heart is the price I have to pay 

My heart is already bleeding at the thought of it all
Angel you have a way of making me feel so small
Sometimes I just want to bang my head against the wall
For I know that your heart already belongs to Raul.
