Liner Notes: 

Song #1 of my Quarantine Album

Think Deacon Claybourne with slide guitar and harmonica (or the female version anyway LOL)

We are in NZ quarantine, day 2. Haven't gone insane yet. We did some exercise and them came back to our room and my wife went to the balcony for a wee rest in the sunshine. Within seconds I was inspired by her and this is what I wrote, probably within 15 mins

She's flattered of course, and I don't really write her love songs, but for years she has told me that I'm the only one who really knows her - hence the title.

Technical question - have I written a refrain at the end of the verse or should it defined as a chorus?
Cos I kinda like it the way I've written it, as the chorus sort of stays with the same tempo and melody, rather being different like most verses and choruses in songs.

Lyrics: 

Her, But Me

Inspired by my wife’s moment of bliss / peace on the balcony in quarantine

V1
She sleeps in the sun
Dark eyes closed at last
A picture of bliss
Escaping the past
NOBODY KNOWS HER
NOBODY SEES
HER, BUT ME

V2
Watching the horizon
Lost in her thoughts
Water’s hypnotising
Her as she walks
NOBODY KNOWS HER
NOBODY SEES
HER, BUT ME

Instrumental

V3
She tells me her worries
She tells me her fears
I carry them all
I worship her tears
NOBODY KNOW HER
NOBODY SEES
HER, BUT ME
HER, BUT ME
HER, BUT. ME.

Such a clear picture of that moment. Will be a great song!

To answer your question, I think it would be categorized as a refrain, since it's less a separate section and more of a repeating line at the end of each section. This is a really beautiful lyric, nice, vivid imagery. What a sweet love song.
