It's a Sunday afternoon. Ron called Kim up. Kim heard her phone ring. "Hey Ron."

"Hey KP, please turn on your radio and tune to 105.9."

"Why, what's on?"

"Just please turn on the radio ok?"

"Ok Ron, you sure your ok?" Kim was wondering what Ron was up to.

"Everything's fine. I'll take to you later. Bye Kim"

"Bye Ron"

Kim got off her bed and walked over to her stereo and turned on the radio. It was in the middle of a commercial. Then she heard the American Top 25 countdown.

Welcome back to American Top 25 Countdown. I'm Casey Kasem. We are now up to our request and dedication. Today's letter is written by Ron from Middleton, Colorado. Ron writes:

Dear Casey,

I have known Kim since we first met on the 1st day of pre-school and we have been best friends ever since. We've always had a special connection that neither of us have ever had with anybody else. Due to some unusual recent events, we've discussed dating but we both are extremely fearful that we would endanger our friendship which means more than anything to both of us. We decided it was best to remain just friends. However, lately I've been feeling something that I can't explain. I've recently come to realize that I'm starting to develop romantic feelings for Kim. Lately, when I'm around her I get this pain in the pit of my stomach. I am having trouble coming up with the words to tell Kim exactly how I feel. So Casey, can you please play "Can't Fight This Feeling" by Reo Speedwagon.

Thank you,

Ron from Middleton.

Ron, here is your Request and Dedication:

I can't fight this feeling any longer
And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship, has grown stronger
I only wish I had the strength to let it show

I tell myself that I can't hold out forever
I said there is no reason for my fear
Cause I feel so secure when we're together
You give my life direction
You make everything so clear

And even as I wander
I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window
On a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crashing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
I've been running round in circles in my mind
And it always seems that I'm following you, girl
Cause you take me to the places that alone I'd never find

And even as I wander I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window on a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crushing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

That was "Can't Fight This Feeling" by Reo Speedwagon. A request and dedication from Ron to Kim. Now back to the Countdown.
