hey everyone. I need some songs about loving someone secretly and not being able to let the feelings show. i like all kinds of music except rap and the real hard "smash your face off of stuff" rock. Anyone know of any?

I always found the best song about loving someone from a distance was "My Eyes Adored You" by Fankie Valli and the Four Seasons. I'm biased, though, because that was popular when I had my first crush. Probably 11-12 years old. Had no clue what girls were for, but I knew it wasn't just playing right field when we were short players.

Anyway, it's a wonderful song, and it always makes me smile when I hear it. It used to crush me, though, back in the 70's.

Alanis Morissette's hidden track on "Jagged Little Pill" is very haunting and beautiful.

I, went to your house

Walked up the stairs

Opened the door without ringing the bell

Walked down the hall

Into your room

Where I could smell you

And I, I shouldn?t be here

Without permission

I shouldn?t be here?

Would you forgive me love?

If I dance in your shower

Would you forgive me love?

If I laid in your bed

Would you forgive me love?

If I stayed all afternoon oh

I took off my clothes

Put on your robe

Went through your drawers

And I found your cologne

Went down to the den

Found your cd?s

And I played your Joni

And I shouldn?t stay long

You might be home soon

I shouldn?t stay long

Would you forgive me love?

If I dance in your shower

Would you forgive me love?

If I laid in your bed

Would you forgive me love?

If I stayed all afternoon

I burned your incense

I ran a bath

I notice a letter that sat on your desk

It said ?hello love?

?I love you so love?

?Meet me at midnight?

And no, it wasn?t my writing,

I better go soon

It wasn?t my writing

So forgive me love

If I cry in your shower

So forgive me love

For the salt in your bed

So forgive me love

If I cry all afternoon oh?

A good current suggestion would be Maroon 5's She Will Be Loved, if you ever see the video for this; they play it occasionally on VH1; it depicts the singer's emotional feelings wrapped up in his own secretive desire for his love?s mother. She is an abused wife, & he has a plan to sweep her off her feet, which he successfully does, leaving his current love disturbed & empty handed.

I agree with jrownsdega

about Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons :bow:

another song - Can't Take My Eyes Off You

____

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off you

You'd be like Heaven to touch

I wanna hold you so much...

also Sinatra - Songs for Swingin' Lovers album ('55) -

I've Got You Under My Skin

and Otis Redding - These Arms of Mine

classic R & B

off the Pain in My Heart album (1964)

Secretly - Skunk Anansie

"I've been biding my time,

Been so subtly kind,

I got to think so selfishly,

'Cos you're the face inside of me.

I've been biding my days,

U see evidently it pays,

I've been a friend,

With unbiased views,

Then secretly lust after you..."

Good list XXX, I actually wouldn't mind owning a compilation with those songs on it. ;)

"See You" and "If You Want" by Depeche Mode

I never knew See You was about secret admiring, I always thought it was more of a take on an obsession with her, that she is aware about, almost to the point of stalking her & not letting go.

All I want to do is see you again

Is that too much to ask for?

I just want to see your sweet smile

Smiled the way it was before

Well I'll try not to hold you

And I'll try not to kiss you

And I won't even touch you

All I want to do is see you

Don't you know that it's true

I remember the days when we'd walk through the woods

And sit on a bench for a while

I treasure the way we used to laugh and play

And look in each others eyes

You can keep me at a distance if you don't trust my resistance

But I swear I won't touch you

All I want to do is see you

Don't you know that it's true

Well I know five years is a long time

And that times change (oh that times change)

But I think that you will find

People are basically the same (basically the same)

If the water's still flowing, we can go for a swim

And do the things we used to do

And if I'm reluctant you can pull me in

And we can relive our youth

Oh but we'll stay friendly like sister and brother

Though I think I still love you

All I want to do is see you

Don't you know that it's true?

Stalking is sort of loving someone obsessively in secret - unless there's a restraining order =:P I thought the song was more about two friends and one wanting something more, yet still keeping the pretense of a Platonic friendship.

Aqua Lung- Strange and beautiful

Its on the Wicker Park sound track, you should see it..

I've been watching your world from afar,

I've been trying to be where you are,

And I've been secretly falling apart,

I'll see.

To me, you're strange and you're beautiful,

You'd be so perfect with me but you just can't see,

You turn every head but you don't see me.

I'll put a spell on you,

You'll fall asleep and I'll put a spell on you.

And when I wake you,

I'll be the first thing you see, lyricstop

And you'll realise that you love me.

Yeah...

Yeah...

Sometimes, the last thing you want comes in first,

Sometimes, the frist thing you want never comes,

And I know, the waiting is all you can do,

Sometimes...

I'll put a spell on you,

You'll fall asleep,

I'll put a spell on you,

And when I wake you,

I'll be the first thing you see,

And you'll realise that you love me.

I'll put a spell on you,

You'll fall asleep 'cos I'll put a spell on you,

And when I wake you,

I'll be the first thing you see,

And you'll realise that you love me, yeah...

yeah...

yeah...

yeah...

yeah...

A song that came to mind immediately was Olivia Newton John's "I Honestly Love You"

I Honestly Love You

Maybe I hang around here

A little more than I should

We both know I got somewhere else to go

But I got something to tell you

That I never thought I would

But I believe you really ought to know

I love you

I honestly love you

You don't have to answer

I see it in your eyes

Maybe it was better left unsaid

This is pure and simple

And you should realize

That it's coming from my heart and not my head

I love you

I honestly love you

I'm not trying to make you feel uncomfortable

I'm not trying to make you anything at all

But this feeling doesn't come along everyday

And you shouldn't blow the chance

When you've got the chance to say

I love you

I honestly love you

If we both were born

In another place and time

This moment might be ending in a kiss

But there you are with yours

And here I am with mine

So I guess we'll just be leaving it at this

I love you

I honestly love you

I honestly love you

"Ghost" by the Indigo Girls

Dark and dangerous like a secret, that's whispered in a hush

When I wake the things I dreamt about you last night make me blush

Then you kiss me like a lover, and you sting me like a viper

I will follow to the river, play your memory like the piper

And I feel it like a sickness, how this love is killing me

But I'd walk into the fingers of your fire willingly

And dance the edge of sanity, I've never been this close

In love with your ghost

Now I see a face before me that would launch a thousand ships

To bring your heart back to my island, as the sand beneath me slips

'Cause I burn up in your presence, and I know now how it feels

To be weakened like Achilles, with you always at my heels

My bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep

It poisons me, I can't swim free, the river is too deep

Though I'm baptised by your touch, I am no worse at most

In love with your ghost

Frank Sinatra- I Get A Kick Out of You

I never realized that this song was about a love from afar, but one day I was paying attention to the lyrics and he says:

"I get a kick every time I see you standing there before me

I get a kick though it's clear to me that you obviously do not adore me"

Interesting, eh?

That Sinatra tune is awesome. I'm listenin' to some Sinatra right now. All that Jazzy/Bluesy stuff is tailored for hopeless romantics :headphones:

I think Rod Stewart had a few like that, but I can't remember any at the moment. And, kinda of a stretch, "I Know You're Out There Somehwere" by The Moody Blues. :guitar:
