DENY


My best friend gets the girl I love. Everybody said they were meant to be. I
didn't say anything. Some things you just don't talk about. What could I do?
Destroy their happiness and mine together? No. It was enough to just be
part of their circle of light. Around them I was always fired up and when by
myself I had little pieces of memory to keep me warm. After a while it's
almost sweeter to go without.

I have loved you for a long time
and I'll take this secret to my grave
Such a sweet thing, to deny all you desire
everyday

It's not as hard to do as you'd think
You just gather everything you love
Cut the rope, then watch it float away, hey
is that so rough

Look around, you'll see the sound
All those lovers coming down
One at a time, they cross that line
One by one until they're gone...
Such a sweet thing, to deny all you desire
then fade away...

I have loved you for a long time
and I'll take this secret to my grave
Such a sweet thing, to deny all you desire
then fade away.
