A Siren call brought you to my shore
Gold and diamonds like you've never known
I gave it all 'til there was no more
Buried in a treasure chest of heart-shaped stones

I am a Muse, tell no one
Your secret love, your special friend
I am a Muse, tell no one
Tell no one you will love me
Until the very end of time

Comes the day your attention turns
Your gratitude, in platitudes, so sincere
Come what may, with a heart that burns
Silent in the ether, I watch you disappear

I am a Muse, tell no one
Your secret love, your special friend
I am a Muse, tell no one
Tell no one you will love me
Until the very end of time

The Graces say I've got to move on
From spending every moment in the cloud
Just walk away and don't hold on
Don't wear your disillusionment like a shroud

Love among the mortals is never without risk
In the end I'm grateful, no shackles on my wrist
Eons of detachment changed my point of view
Now I understand, you were my Muse too

I am a Muse, tell no one
Your secret love, your special friend
I am a Muse, tell no one
Tell no one you will love me
Until the very end of time
