Deep down inside
I know I still love him
But he'll never know
Cause I'll never tell

I'll confide that I'm thinking of him
And wishing him well
I can't walk up to him and say to him

Baby, what you been doing
I still love you like I did
You know, nothing's really changed here
But being the way I am
I keep it hid

Lately I've seen
That look in his eyes
That just breaks my heart
He needs me so
To lean on at this moment
Oh why can't I walk up to that old love of mine and say

Baby, what you been doing
I still love you like I did
You know, nothing's really changed here
But being the way I am
I keep it hid

Maybe someday I'll throw off my foolish pride
This ain't so good
Watching him die this way
Cause he's the same guy inside
Oh why can't I walk up to that old love of mine and say

Baby, what you been doing
I still love you like I did
You know, nothing's really changed here
But being the way I am
I keep it hid
