It's okay you don't have to say
What I think I already know
It's very clear that something's changed
That neither of us can ignore

There's something a little sweeter
In the way that we relate
Something in the way we linger
At the very kiss of it something in the way

You're keeping secrets from me
That's so much from yourself, keeping secrets
Oh, but this one's going to tell itself
You're guarding sweet dreams tightly
You turn around the truth, lie blindly
But it's in your eyes I can see that you're falling for me

It's up to no one else but you
Whatever you decide
The hardest part is giving up
The feelings you deny

It's what I see in you
Only a reflection of my own dreams
It's what I see in you
Only the heart and soul in me, well

You're keeping secrets from me
That's so much from yourself, keeping secrets
Oh, but this one's going to tell itself
You're guarding sweet dreams tightly
You turn around the truth, lie blindly
But it's in your eyes I can see that you're falling for me

As long as we have our freedom
We think that we are safe
There's an unspoken commitment
That love initiates, it doesn't matter how long we wait

You're keeping secrets from me
That's so much from yourself, keeping secrets
Oh, but this one's going to tell itself
You're guarding sweet dreams tightly
You turn around the truth, lie blindly
But it's in your eyes I can see that you're falling for me
