   If you never knew the way I felt,

That would be all right -

And I would be satisfied.

You'll never know my tears the way the night did,

Nor the daydreaming smile sun always gives me,

You'll never know my dreams - or fears -

And I won't let you protect me, not ever.

If you never knew the way I walked,

Down the hall with my heart in my throat,

I wouldn't really care.

Because the fact is you don't, and the reason is you can't,

For I stand mute, with a smile on my heart,

If not on my face,

Knowing that the way life twists events

is for the better.

If you never know the way I feel,

My comrade, my hero, and all the above,

I don't really mind,

Your presence is enough,

And your smile, though not directed at me,

Gives me satisfaction for a thousand joys
