"Secret Love" as written by and Sammy/webster Fain....
Once I had a secret love,
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 hearts an open door,
And my secret love's
No secret anymore.

    General CommentIve heard alot about this song being her being a closet gay. I do think its just metaphor for her "secret love"
    fair enough shes singin about a him...I could be wrong but listen to her music and shes infact singin alot of being a lesbian and not feelin she can come out but she cant be any other way.

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is pretty straightforward and it's nice coming from a female perspective which seems kind of rare. Girl is with a guy but likes another guy who's with some other girl. She trys to tell him how she feels and wants to be open about it (open love vs. secret love) but she's not sure if he has the same feelings as her;
    "I looked in your eyes
    Without sayin' a word
    I told you what I am
    And I hoped that you heard".
