Slim Whitman - Secret Love Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

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

Now my heart's an open door

And my secret love's no secret anymore

 

[Verse 2]

Now I shout it from the highest hills

Even told the golden daffodils

Now my heart's an open door

And my secret love's no secret anymore
