Secret Love Lyrics

Artist: Doris Day
Album: Secret Love

Secret Love
Doris Day
- written by Sammy Fain and Paul-Francis Webster
- written for the movie "Calamity Jane"

- #1 song of January 1954
- Tommy Edwards (#28, 1954); Ray Anthony (#29, 1954);
- Billy Stewart (#29, 1966);
- Freddy Fender (#20, 1975)


Once I had a secret love
That lived within the heart of me
All too soon my secret love
Became impatient to be free

So I told a friendly star
The way that dreamers often do
Just how wonderful you are
And why I am so in love with you

Now I shout it from the highest hills
Even told the golden daffodils

At last my heart's an open door
And my secret love's no secret anymore

-------------------------------------------------------------------

"When I first heard 'Secret Love' I almost fainted, it was so
beautiful.... When we finally got around to doing the
prerecording, Ray Heindorf, the musical director at Warner's,
said he'd get the musicians in about 12:30 so they could
rehearse. That morning I did my vocal warm up, then jumped on my
bike and rode over to Warner's (we lived in Toluca Lake at the
time, which was just minutes from the studio). When I got there,
I sang the song with the orchestra for the first time. When I'd
finished, Ray called me into the sound booth, grinning from ear
to ear, and said, 'That's it. You're never going to do it
better.' That was the first and only take we did."

- Doris Day

When I heard the songs' introduction in the radio, I though it was going to be a very sweet song, but when I picked up the lyrics and the melody, I found it much more than that, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!

First heard the song in 1954 while waiting outside the open air cinema at R.A.F. Ismalia, did not see the film until many years later when it was shown on tv.

Once, when I was young, I had a secret love, but could never get the nerve to tell this wonderful person that I had these feelings for her ... I was too young and stupid and lost my chance for real love. Years later, Doris Day made the recording of "Secret Love" and many years later, I still think of ... MY secret love.

I was cleaning the house yesterday and this move came on, i sat down for a minute and ended up watching the whole thing, i was in complete heaven, basking in all its glory, i can't stop singing that song, it's truely wonderful and you can feel the beauty, love and warmth in her voice!
by Lisa 9/27/2011 on 9/27/2011 9:06pm
A beautiful song, my mom used to sing around the house when I was young. She actually sounded like Doris Day to me...,what beautiful memories of happiness and youth and the wonder of love. I am a hopeless romantic,this song helped foster it I believe.

I loved Doris Day.she was a great actress and I could watch her movies all day especially the ones with Cary Grant.
by Lily C on 2/16/2012 11:28am
Roland Williams, a professional singer dedicated this song to me. He was a friend of my family. I was very young and because of the difference in our ages what we felt had to be a secret. No doubts he was real and I thank him for giving me the gift that i sing today.

My mam has dementia and I have discovered her singing snippets of songs to hereself. I listen to the lyrics and then try and find them on this site. I then use the lyrics to help her remember and I cannot say what a joy it is to see her connecting to the eworld again.
Thank you

I will be singing this song to my Girl. She is a secret to my family as they are very predictable when it comes to race issues. She is Black, I'm white and we're in love. It's not a secret....Anymore

As an ex entertainer, I'm always thinking of songs and how I can re-arrange them - the other day this great song came into my head - and I created a beautiful arrangement- starts with angelic voices and violins then the song starts on a 4/4 slow beat with bongos and includes the angelic voices - WOW... it's great - cannot keep it out of my head and heart
by PRIYA H. on 1/16/2013 4:22pm
THIS SONG COME TO ME IN MEDITATION. i HADN'T HEARD IT SINCE I WAS A SMALL GIRL,BUT I REMEMBERED ALMOST EVERY WORD.

Pure beauty. One simple take for such grace and love for a single song.
by Ramiz Iqbal on 7/18/2013 7:36pm
Are you the full moon or the dazzaling sun? Whatever you may be, I swear you are beyond compare.
Like a cloud, your hair falls over your shoulders, your eyes brim with the wine of love, you are the very intoxication of wine.
Are you the full moon or the dazzaling sun? Whatever you may be, I swear you are beyond compare.
Your face is like a lotus in a flowing brook, Your face is like a sonnet tuned by the music of life, My love, you are the inspiration of a poet.
Are you the full moon or the dazzaling sun? Whatever you may be, I swear you are beyond compare.
The hint of a smile plays on your lips, The universe bows in you presence, you are the essence of love and beauty in this world.
Are you the full moon or the dazzaling sun? Whatever you may be, I swear you are beyond compare.
