What you look like
Snow white and so on
Reminds me of what I can't quite put my finger upon
The key piano and otherwise
Secret upon secret I promise to hide

I love you but I'm gonna keep quiet about it
I love you but I'm keepin' my mouth shut about it

Walking back in to the living room
Where I do nothing like sing
Or play piano until the cow comes home
And when the phone rings
I don't dare answer

I love you but I'm gonna keep quiet about it
I love you but I'm keepin' my mouth shut about it

Outside the window a shower scattered
Drop after drop of sound pitter-pattered
Pitter-pattered, pitter-pattered

The wall is white and streaked and splattered
The pipes are broken, the leak, oh, no matter to me
'Cause I prefer this distraction
When the piano calls off key

I love you but I'm gonna keep quiet about it
I love you but I'm keepin' my mouth shut about it

    General CommentEasily analyzed, this song is simply about a girl hiding a crush, hence "I love you but I'm gonna keep quiet about it, I love you but I'm keepin' my mouth shut about it."
    Even though it's a pretty simple song, I believe there's something unique and amazing about this song. Maybe it's the simplicity in itself, or Jaymay's amazing voice, but either way, this song is pure genius.

    My InterpretationI agree. I definetly think this song is about a girl who is in love but too shy to tell the guy. so she simply stays inside thinks about him but is too nervous maybe scared to talk to him
