Timo Schmitz: “Missing communication” (2013)

I feel you like me a bit,
But you don’t pay attention to me,
So I feel very sad,
Because maybe the way you like me is just “like”,
And not “love”.

I don’t know what I shall think of you,
Because I love you very much,
But you don’t know it,
And I can’t tell you.

I don’t want others to know it,
Because if you will refuse,
Then I will feel bad,
But I want you to know my love,
I just can’t tell you.

Some days have passed now,
And I saw you rarely,
And I miss you much more,
But you don’t know it,
And I can’t tell you.

I feel ashamed,
I don’t want to ask for a date,
I want you to ask me first,
But I can’t let you know.

What do you think of me,
Give me a sign,
I will answer you,
But you don’t tell me.
