"We Kiss in a Shadow" is a show tune from the 1951 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, The King and I.
In this song, Tuptim and Lun Tha declare their love for each other, even though they fear that the King of Siam would know about it.
In the original Broadway production it is sung by Doretta Morrow and Larry Douglas. In the 1956 film version it was sung by Reuben Fuentes dubbing for Carlos Rivas and Leona Gordon dubbing for Rita Moreno.
We kiss in the shadow, We hide from the moon, Our meetings are few And over too soon.
We speak in a whisper, Afraid to be heard, When people are near, We speak not a word.
Alone in our secret, Together we sigh For one smiling day to be free.
To kiss in the sunlight, And say to the sky, Behold and believe what you see, Behold how my lover loves me.
Alone in our secret, together we cry For one smiling day to be free. To kiss in the sunlight, and say to the sky, Behold and believe what you see, Behold how my lover loves me.
