Nothing Ventured


You walk into the room,
I'm a million miles away.
I don't know what to do,
I don't know what to say.
My hands start to shake and
I can't control my voice.
You walk by, you say "hello"...
I just nod my head and smile.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained,
My friends all say to me.
But I can't say what's been on my mind,
I guess I'll let it be.
My secret love for you remains a secret.

We find a quiet corner,
in our favorite coffee shop,
Have a cup and share some light conversation.
I gaze into your eyes,
suddenly they just don't look the same
I wake up from my daydream and
I walk home alone, again.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained,
My friends keep telling me.
But I can't tell you what's on my mind,
I guess I'll let it be.
My secret love for you remains a secret.
Yes,my secret love for you is just a secret.
