Minor key, steady jazz groove and tempo, maybe a sax solo in the interlude. Lyrics could be easily tweaked for a female nightclub singer.

(v1)
I had a secret love
I met her in the attic of a lonely place
She was my secret love
I knew I’d never forget her face

(v2)
When I talked with my secret love
No one understood the things we shared
We kept it a secret love
Only she could know how much I cared

(Bridge 1)
They cannot know what we know
My secret love never can show
A simple smile across a crowded room
Two strangers nobody would presume

(v3)
But she’s my secret love
No one in the world can make me feel so fine
Only my secret love
That’s why the world can never know she’s mine

(Instrumental)

(Bridge 2)
Someday we won’t have to close that door
And this secret love will be a secret no more
Someday we won’t have to hide away
I know that we’ll be together one day

(v4)
But till then, my secret love
Had to take the early morning train
So I’ll cry for my secret love
Though in time, she’ll be in my arms again

(Coda)
(Ooh) secret love
(Ooh) secret love
(Ooh) secret love

Nice! Got a good rhythm to it. I can easily imagine this in a jazz style.

Good song.

(There IS a standard, Secret Love---and it has the line 'My secret love's not secret anymore. Just sayin')...
