ACT 1   -  Scene 3
Performed by

Leonardo

 Salai pities Leonardo, thinking that he is a stranger to romance,  Leonardo reflects that a man like him can love like any other, but he has to keep his true feelings hidden.

Lyric

    LEONARDO 

 

IF ONLY I COULD TELL HIM,

IT ISN’T EASY TO EXPLAIN

I HAVE LOVED LIKE ANY OTHER

BUT IT’S A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

         

DEAR GOD GIVE ME ONE GOOD REASON

WHY I HAVE TO HIDE IN SHAME   

AND CAN NEVER SHOW MY FEELINGS

FOR IT’S A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

 

I WANT TO CLIMB THE HIGHEST HILL

AND SHOUT IT FROM THE SKIES

AND PRAY THAT THOSE WHO JUDGE ME NOW

WILL ONE DAY REALISE

 

THAT GOD HAS NOT DISOWNED ME

I KNOW HE UNDERSTANDS MY PAIN

FOR DID HE NOT REWARD ME

WITH A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

(A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME)

    

THE DIE IS CAST, AND WE CANNOT CHANGE

WHAT NATURE HAS DESIGNED

IF A MAN MUST WALK A DIFFERENT PATH

THEN CAN THIS JOURNEY REALLY BE A CRIME

 

MY GOD! I’M ONLY HUMAN

I CAN’T IGNORE THIS BURNING FLAME

YES, I HAVE LOVED LIKE ANY OTHER

BUT IT’S A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

    

AND I HOPE ONE DAY HE’LL UNDERSTAND

THAT I CAN LOVE

BUT IT’S A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME
