Secret Love

Our relationship had to be a secret,
A secret that i couldnt tell,
So i loved you and treasured u quietly,
And that i did quite well.
I wanted to shout from the rooftops,
But kept all my love deep inside,
Cos if we told your family our relationship would never survive
I could understand your reasons,
I could understand this was best,
But sometimes it pushed me so far it really put our love to the test,
As time grew i began to wonder if maybe this was right,
If maybe on a spontaneous burst we could elope one night,
But that would never happen
I knew it would never come true,
But deep inside il always hold my secret love for you
