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?
We create our own unhappiness. The purpose of suffering is to help us understand we are the ones who cause it.
~ Willie Nelson

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..."

Blue on blue
Heartache on heartache
Blue on blue
Now that we are through.

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

Quote:

"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.
If you got bliss, I will follow.

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...
Quod me nutrit, me destruit

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

New artist Rachael Yamagata's "Worn Me Down" is allegedly about having a crush so long, it's worn her down. Debut album is "happenstance"
..."and the band played on"
