"Private Emotion (Feat. Meja)" as written by and Robert Andrew/bazilian Hyman....
Every endless night has a dawning day
Every darkest sky has a shining ray
And it shines on you baby can't you see
You're the only one who can shine for me

It's a private emotion that fills you tonight
And a silence falls between us
As the shadows steal the light
And wherever you may find it
Wherever it may lead
Let your private emotion come to me
Come to me

When your soul is tired
And your heart is weak
Do you think of love
As a one way street
Well it runs both ways,
Open up your eyes
Can't you see me here,
How can you deny
It's a private emotion that fills you tonight

Every endless night has a dawning day
Every darkest sky has a shining ray
It takes a lot to laugh as your tears go by
But you can find me here
Till your tears run dry
It's a private emotion that fills you tonight

    General Commentthe emotion can be anything felt by the other person. i think in this case it's fair to say that it's 2 people realizing their feelings, one is willing and able and the other isn't sure.....

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has given up and been so hurt by love, hence the line 'Do you think of love as a one way street?'. The other person wants them to realize that they will always be there for them, either for love or just friendship. This person is tired of seeing the other person so hurt & upset.

    My InterpretationBeen listening to this song for a long time and never quite knew what it meant.
    I think I know now.

    I think by private emotion, they mean something very personal, that makes you very vulnerable and probably, has negative connotations. Things you usually keeps to yourself, and don't share even with your partner. something like insecurities, fears, things you don't want anyone to know about yourself.

    But when those feelings take over you, (It's a private emotion that fills you tonight) it creates a rift in the relationship, (silence falls between us, as the shadow steals the light) because whatever you are going through, your partner can't know if you don't say it, and they can't understand you/help you.

    So the lyrics is from the perspective of someone who is in love with someone who is down for whatever reason, and is trying to make them understand that they are there for them, and to open up and share that "private emotion" that is making their soul tired and heart weak, that makes the sky seem so dark. To not think of love as a one way street, where they only have to give the best of themselves, but to open their eyes and see the other person is there for them, thick and thin (But you can find me here, till your tears run dry)
