i can’t keep this from you lyrics – elton john

i can’t keep this from you
i’ve held it in so long
it’s time to tell the truth
keeping it from you is wrong
i can’t keep this from you
it’s so simple i’m afraid
when i tell you how i feel
you’ll just laugh and call me crazy

and i can’t keep
this love a secret
and i don’t want
to go on longing
i just want a chance for me to prove
my love and i can’t keep this from you

i can’t keep this from you
it’s hard to breathe in here
i just seem to act the fool
every time i feel you near

i can’t keep this from you
no matter what you say
anything is better now
than going through my life this way

and i can’t keep
this love a secret
and i don’t want
to go on longing
i just want a chance for me to prove
my love and i can’t keep this from you

and i love every move you make
can’t you hear every heart you break?
and don’t you know when i hear your name?
just the sound of it shoots me down in flames

and i can’t keep
this love a secret
and i don’t want
to go on longing
i just want a chance for me to prove
my love and i can’t keep this from you

i can’t keep
this love a secret
and i don’t want
to go on longing
i just want a chance for me to prove
my love and i can’t keep this from you

i just want a chance for me to prove
my love and i can’t keep this from you
oh no i just can’t keep this from you
