Once I had a secret loveGet it? Get it?
That lived within the heart of me.
All too soon my secret love
Became impatient to be free.
So I told a friendly star,
The way that dreamers often do,
Just how wonderful you are,
And why I'm so in love with you.
Now I shout it from the highest hills,
Even told the golden daffodils.
At last my heart's an open door,
And my secret love's no secret anymore.
