Secret Love Song Lyrics

When you hold me in the street
And you kiss me on the dance floor
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't it be like that? Cause I'm yours

We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you, I die a little more
Stolen moments that we...

    The lyrics that Little Mix sing are clearly about a relationship which is not socially acceptable (being LGBT+ myself, this is the way in which I view it - as an LGBT song - although it could be for interracial, cousins, step siblings ect. relationships). However, Jason Durulo's part is clearly talking about being with a girl who is still with someone else. It may seem hash, but I think the song would bs better without hos part. Anyway, that's just my opinion.

    It's a very touching song for LBGT and for everyone,
    For it being about LBGTs not being able to do the same things as straight people, like being with them in public and kissing in public.

    I think the song could mean about a forbidden love however you want to think of it is. An incest love, loving someone else but you already have a partner that you're supposed to be with, a same gender love and of the sort. It's the kind of love that prevents you to do the things you want to do with the person you actually love but society around you doesn't want that and judges you. Therefore, your love is just a secret to keep yourselves and is part of you heart being locked up inside.

    I love how the person who wrote the article about half way through started saying LBGT instead of LGBT lol

    i think this song is about a boy and a girl who are secretly in love and they are afraid to tell their friends and family incase they don't accept their soulmate. they cant live without them and may have to lose some friends or family members respect as they obviously have to choose love over friends and family and aren't ready to let go of them yet.

    In my opinion, the song is about two individuals who are in love with each other but are separated by public criticism.

    It’s about being in love with someone that you are not allowed to be with in the public eye. Perhaps two celebrities who were/are in love with each other (not gender specific) but due to them being carefully watched by the public, they are not allowed to publicly show their love for each other. Explains their wants to be able to show affection for each other publicly but something is stopping them (management, contracts etc).

    The girl is in love with a guy who is in a relationship. They both love each other, but they cannot be together.

    In my opinion the song means to me, after being in an abusive relationship and not wanting to accept love. Meeting someone as fucked up as you who still understands and loves you but use both are scared of getting hurt so you try to deny and hide your love for each other.

    It's a song about a guy in love with a girl who is taken, but she doesn't want to leave the person she's with because she doesn't want to start any drama.

    I think it’s about being gay or bisexual and you love someone who is also gay or bisexual. but you can’t be with them for reasons. “why can’t I hold you in the street why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor I wish that it could be like that why can’t it be like that cause I’m yours”

    This is Secret Love Song Pt I with Jason Derulo. Little Mix’s part is wanting to be with the guy that she cannot be with. Almost like Romeo and Juliet. And Jason’s part is about being with a girl that is having an affair. Secret Love Song Pt II is different from this version with Jason.

    For the original song (with Jason derulo) it seems to be about a man and a woman, where the woman is already with someone else. However, the woman is also in love with the man singing, so it's kind of a cheating story. For the part II of the song, without Jason derulo, it's a completely different story. This one is about a relationship that's not socially acceptable. Personally, as a semi-closeted lesbian in a relationship with a girl who's parents do not and can not know she's dating me, the song is about the fear of other people finding out about our relationship. If we ever want to be open about our relationship, we have to do it when we're alone (which for us is pretty much never).
