You and I

You and I both know
we can’t let this go
on the way it does.
Yes, you and I both know
we can’t let it show
what's between us...

And we’ll just go on being
the greatest friends you’ve ever seen;
revelling in each other
in groups of three or more,
and I’ll never let it show
You mean everything to me.

And we’ll invent a place and time
to see each other; it’s no crime
to meet by accident...
and stop awhile to chat and smile
and hide the love we feel inside;
it's never mentioned.
