We talk in secrecy

No one knows we do

For if they did it would

Be the beginning of the end

For every day that we talk

We grow stronger in courage

To face those people who

Disgrace our talking and

Our love for one another

Yet as our courage is building

We talk to each other around different people

Who don’t care if we talk

Our bond has grown stronger

Through this period of silence

But that break in the silence

Those moments are the moments
That we treasure the most.
