For so long, I kept my love for you hidden in the darkest part of my heart,
Afraid to ever let it show, miserable because it had to be my secret.
Yet all the while you suffered with a secret of your own;
So sure I could never feel as you did, you never even planned to give me a chance.
Then one day the feeling grew too strong to keep it locked away
And the words came rushing out as though they possessed a will of their own.
Now the love's been shared and we're faced with twice as much sorrow and despair,
Which we must face in our own private, silent Hell once more.
