I love you but I dare not hope, I love you just as my friend


Explanation:
It is a little difficult to translate without knowing what the song (?) is all about. This is the way I interpret it, but more context might make things different. I see it as someone who is in love, but all she can hope for from this man is friendship. Does that make sense?
