our little secret

the turn of a key, the click of a lock-
and all it took was for someone to talk
you enter the room; you enter her heart-
who knew that this would only be the start

of a new song, a new beginning
sometimes the bitter loser ends up winning
just one more whisper can lead to just one more lie
a lifetime of which could cause a heart to die

and he’d say “this is just our little secret,
and i think you can keep it,
yeah can you keep it?
can we keep our love alive?”

and somehow my naivety let it survive.

‘cause he’d claim he just wanted to see my smile,
so we could stay for a while, just a little while
and didn’t I notice the way I could light up a room
with just my eyes, the kind of eyes that could take away the gloom?

the aching torment of what he had to do.
but he didn’t have to; he never had to
“you never knew how much I needed you-”
but somehow the pain’s still leaking through.

I never knew I could hate anyone,
Half as much as I hated you
But then again I guess I never knew
The gravity of what dangerous secrets can do.
