Hiding our love, there is no freedom
as we are sheltered from the world.
I can't hold you in my arms, feel your warmth,
taste the sweet nectar from your lips, or inhale your essence.
I want to be free, unleashed from these bars that cage me.
I weep in silence for what could be,
for the love that knows no boundaries,
yet can't be spoken freely.
Hiding the one thing I long to share, secrets I've only written down,
and smiles that are masked by sealed lips of untold tales.
Holding these feelings like a tightly bound rope,
for others wouldn't understand my unwavering love of dreams and hopes.
I feed on our love as we are truly one.
It's embedded in my soul, it's a part of who I am,
It's all I've come to know, without you I don't feel whole.
You whisper, "Have I told you lately I love you."
I hold my breath until the day it's no longer written in words,
but spoken by your lips and sealed by mine.
Dreams of being together where we roam free,
that's when I feel weightless and truly me.
Warm summer nights, clear skies,
millions of stars, before making love at sunrise.
I'm reaching out, can you feel my pull?
Come away with me, I'm waiting for you.
Help me tear down the walls that separate our fate,
True love won't abandon us if we are truly soul mates.
Breathless, I long to be with my other half,
The one who is the keeper of my dreams,
Who owns my heart's past.
To be truly free,
Where can our love reside if we are trapped by this gilded cage.
Where can we continue to grow as friends, lovers, soul mates,
If our love is forever silenced.
