NO SECRET

Copyright 2008 Ė Robert E. Shandor

 

Sneakiní down the backroads so we wonít be seen
My conscience should feel guilty but itís somewhere in between
I know I shouldnít think that I can make her change
When Iíve got as much chance as herdiní cats in the rain

 

Her husbandís at his office, her kids are off to school
She says that itís our secret, she MUST think Iím a fool
Iíd bet her lips go flappiní when she knows Iím not around
Telliní whispered stories to all her friends in town

 

She tells me not to worry, that everythingís fine
Iím wound too tight for comfort,Ďcause I know that sheís lyiní
My daddy once told me from his dyiní bed
That two canít keep no secret lessín one of themís dead

She sings her sirenís song and it leads me to mistake
I recklessly oblige her, pretend our secretís safe
Hope we wonít be caught if we donít stay out late
But you never want to draw to an inside straight

 

She tells me not to worry, that everythingís fine
Iím wound too tight for comfort,Ďcause I know that sheís lyiní
My daddy once told me from his dyiní bed
That two canít keep no secret lessín one of themís dea

That two canít keep no secret lessín one of themís dead
