Here’s my secret
Don’t you want to keep it
Put it in a pocket
Shut it in a locket
Crumple it
Burn it
Spread the ashes wide
Crumple it
Burn it
Set my soul aside
(X2)
You sent me to the garden
Well, I soaked my skin in sun
Climbed a tall tree to the sea
Above oh and I knew I’d won
All I could see
Reminded you of me
I’m an exile
But I drive you wild
So dream as you please
With the disease
I gave you
That secret it tease –es you so

Here’s my secret
Don’t you want to keep it
Put it in a pocket
Shut it in a locket
Crumple it
Burn it
Spread the ashes wide
Crumple it
Burn it
Set my soul aside

Oh you may catch your fingers
In the tangles of another girl
Oh you may think the weather’s
So hot because it’s your world
But I know the rain is coming
It’ll fall all over your face
And every little drop is a mirror
With my name inside
You try to erase
And you’ll hide them all
But they’re already fallin
Down on you
Down, so

Here’s my secret
Don’t you want to keep it
Put it in a pocket
Shut it in a locket
Crumple it
Burn it
Spread the ashes wide
Crumple it
Burn it
Set my soul aside

My secret’s in the infection
Of my brain inside your veins
My heart’s beating in your mouth
Every word you spit just sounds insane
And you try to move your body
But my absence is the chill in your spine
My soul is the air you breath in
I’m not present but you’re still mine
Well, I left like you wanted
Smiled sad
And slipped out of your sight
But my secret is that your confronted
By what I didn’t leave every night.
And you’ll fight it, but

Here’s my secret
Don’t you want to keep it
Put it in a pocket
Shut it in a locket
Crumple it
Burn it
Spread the ashes wide
Crumple it
Burn it
Set my soul aside
(X2)

Well I know you’re gonna try…

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER WRITTEN LYRICS WOOHOOO!!
Just got bored.
And then WHAM! this chorus hit me
And then it was catchy.
And then I tried to sing them and immediately stopped myself.
So I tried writing them down. That worked a little better. TADA!!!
