Can't Tell You


I can't hide it, nor can I show it...
I am in love with you... but I can't even tell you...
I can't hide it, nor can I show it...

I write your name on my palm, and then erase it.
It's you who I love, yet why is it you I hide it from? Yet why is it you I hide from?
The words are on my lips, but I can't find a way to tell you.

I am in love with you... but I can't even tell you...
I can't hide it, nor can I show it...

Will someone explain to me how to love?
Otherwise my whole life might go by without my love. My whole life might go by without my love.

I can't find any excuses to meet you.
I am in love with you... but I can't even tell you...
I can't hide it, nor can I show it...

On the sly, I keep looking at you
Yet I don't know why I am afraid to tell you about the state my heart is in. I don't know why I am afraid.
How crazy is my heart... I can't seem to pacify it...

I am in love with you... but I can't even tell you...
I can't hide it, nor can I show it...

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
