“We Kiss in a Shadow” LYRICS

Lun Tha:
We kiss in a shadow,
We hide from the moon,
Our meetings are few
And over too soon.

We speak in a whisper,
Afraid to be heard.
When people are near,
We speak not a word.

Alone in our secret,
Together we sigh
For one smiling day to be free,

To kiss in the sunlight
And say to the sky:
“Behold and believe what you see!
Behold how my lover loves me!”

Tuptim:

We speak in a whisper,
Afraid to be heard.
When people are near,
We speak not a word.

Alone in our secret,
Together we sigh
For one smiling day to be free,

Both:
To kiss in the sunlight
And say to the sky:
“Behold and believe what you see!
Behold how my lover loves me!”
