I reach for you like I'd reach for a star,
Worshipping you from afar,
Living with my silent love.
I'm like a flame dying out in the rain,
Only the ashes remain,
Smouldering like my si - lent love.
How I long to tell all the things I have planned,
Still it's wrong to tell, you would not understand.
You'll go along never dream - ing I care,
Loving somebody somewhere,
Leaving me my si - lent love.
