Longing To Tell You So

diffident, shy, uncertain
lacking the strength to draw back the curtain
letting timidity run and rule the show

in secrecy admiring
but holding back, too soft and retiring
keeping the things I feel trapped and held below

and that courage required to express
that I love you is nevertheless
what I stupidly hide and suppress
I know

as waters gush from fountains
love gives you faith, and faith can move mountains
faith to reveal the things I want you to know
and I'm longing to tell you so

all these secrets I keep in my head
I should open to you, but instead
I recoil and I leave them unsaid
I know

timid and unrevealing
reticent with my heart still concealing
I fell in love with you somewhere long ago
and I'm longing to tell you so
