I guess you could call this piece nostolgic. It's about that one person you would give the world for. The one person who you thought actually cared. To bad he's in love with someone else.

I hide my thoughts in secret
for me alone to see
if only you knew
what you meant to me

Every smile that you spare me
every hug around the waist
every word whispered faintly
is carefully stowed away

Each kiss atop the forehead
each time you push my hair aside
there is one more reason
I can never leave you behind

Your arms come to surround me
when there are tears dangling from my eyes
you press my head against your chest
and you let me cry

I'm thankful for your love
I'm thankful for your care
I'm thankful for your protection
and the good times that we've shared

But when you turn your back
I see your love towards she
you rush to kiss another girl
a girl who is not me

I hide my thoughts in secret
for me alone to see
if only you knew
how much you meant to me
