I cannot take you to parties
Or take you to meet my family
I can’t talk about you to anyone
or tell them I’m proud you are mine.
I can’t wake up with you each morning
Or lie down in your arms as you go to sleep
I’m alone in my bed because you’re not mine.
I love to hold your hand but when out
We have to keep distance as friends do
The smile I give you is friendly
In my head replays the passion we have.
Everyone knows that I’m single because in theory I am
I can’t belong to you and you’re not
Allowed to be mine.
We keep each other a secret
And the thoughts we have are just ours
I have no right to your time or emotions
I have no rights at all
You will always belong to another
And I know you will never really be mine.
