Love in Secrecy

under the dark sky and constellations of stars,
we lie on this grass away from all the noise of the cars.
comfortably, we try to rest our weary hearts
tonight, we take the joys and leave the lonely parts.

it feels good to be next to you and hear your voice
you speak to me as if you're communicating with my soul.
I guess that falling in love tonight is not a choice,
but a feeling that I just cannot hold back, I just can't control..

I'll forget our possibilities because I know it's impossible.
they only exist in my dreams, I can't tell you- you make me whole.
and so I guess I just have to take a chance granted me
by God Who knows that I've always loved you in secrecy..

you fall asleep, I still love your eyes though closed.
I'm crazy about your eyes and I guess nobody knows.
I faint inside everytime you wake and your eyes look for me
you think that I'd leave but no, I'm just here watching you sleep.

I wonder why am I so scared if my love is just so pure and sincere..
It's just so real and true, I know I've no reasons to fear.
but I still can't tell you how much you mean to me..
I can't even make a good look at you when you look back at me.

I realized, this is love and it's just so real..
Probably, it's a good way to understand and feel
that true love does exist like it's happening to me..
Yes, I'm drowning here in this deep emotion sea..
and you're not aware of what you do to me
as you fall asleep next to the one who loves you in secrecy.
