Why did you come now?

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5#6#7
Why did you come now?
Why now when my heart
already has someone?
I wish I knew
That you would come
Then maybe, I would've waited
 
Refrain:
It should've been you that I'm hugging,
It's your hands that I should be holding
And not his/hers (see NOTE #1)
 
Chorus:
Why did you come into my life now?
Forcing to open my already closed heart
Are you really for me?
Should I forget him/her? (see NOTE #2)
I want to know
Why did you come now?
 
Refrain 2:
It should've been you that I'm hugging
It's your hands that I should be holding
And not his/hers
And not his/hers
 
Chorus:
Why did you come into my life now?
Forcing to open my already closed heart
Are you really for me?
Should I forget him/her?
I want to know
Why did you come now?

NOTE #1: The word was 'KANYA', the possessive pronoun for the third person in singular form. Tagalog is a gender-neutral language and there is no distinction between 'he' or 'she'. 'KANYA' can either be 'HIS' or 'HERS', depending on the usage.

NOTE #2: The word was 'SIYA', the pronoun for the singular third person. The same explanation applies. It can either be 'HE' or 'SHE'.
