about

A man is tortured by his love for someone forbidden...but what if he told her?

lyrics

If I told you,
Would it have to be the end?
Would you smile your nervous smile?
Could you pretend I'd never said it?
If I told you,
Would your eyes fill up with blame?
Would you slap me on the face,
Or tell me that you feel the same?

Cos I can't bear it any longer.
I prayed the feelings would fade,
But they grew stronger.
Got the weight of the world on my shoulders.
Could it be any worse,
Would I feel any worse.

If I told you,
Would I become the enemy?
Would you hide yourself away
And make excuses not to see me?
Would you grab me by the wrist,
And tell me not to go?
Say 'it's just our little secret,
No one else need ever know'?

Cos I can't bear it any longer.
I prayed the feelings would fade,
But they grew stronger.
Got the weight of the world on my shoulders.
Could it be any worse,
Would I feel any worse.
If I told you.

Could it be any worse?
Would i feel any worse?
If I told you?
Would I feel any worse?

And if I told you,
Would it end the fantasy,
To deal with you as a person,
To face reality?
And if I told you,
Would it break the spell?
You'd be you and I'd be me,
Tracks to cover, lies to tell?

Cos I can't bear it any longer.
I prayed the feelings would fade,
But they grew stronger.
Got the weight of the world on my shoulders.
Could it be any worse,
Would I feel any worse.
Cos I can't bear it any longer.
I prayed the feelings would fade,
But they grew stronger.
Got the weight of the world on my shoulders.
Could it be any worse,
Would I feel any worse.
If I told you.

about

Rumour Den County Antrim, UK

Formed in the late 1990's by Al Gilmore & Steve Simms, Rumour Den did a lot in a short space of time including a self- financed single 'Under A Cloud' and album 'Melancholics Anonymous' - both to critical acclaim. However, problems outside music meant the band had to split up for several years. But now Gilmore & Simms have put a new line-up together and are determined to make up for lost time ... more
