Secret Lyrics

by Missy Higgins

You were from the North, I was from the South
We were from opposite places, different towns
But I knew it was good and you knew it was too

And so we moved together like a ball and chain
Minds becoming two halves of the same
It was real, but in the shadows it grew

'Cause youve got a secret
Dont you, babe?

I would shout it aloud, broken through
I wouldve given it all to belong to you
But there were different plans and different rules

You said, Where Im from is a lock and key
If youd be so kind as to follow me
I will show you the way to the rest of my sins

'Cause youve got a secret
Dont you, babe?
Yeah you, you got a secret
Dont you, babe?
And I should know, oh yeah
Yeah, I should know

So this room was damp where your sins laid
There was that smell in the air of an old place
That hadnt seen much daylight in years

And you threw me down, said, If you dont mind
Im gonna leave you here to night time
Then we can do what we want, my baby, out of the spot light

'Cause youve got a secret
Dont you, babe?
Yeah you, you got a secret
Dont you, babe?
And I should know, oh
Yeah, I should know

For I am your secret
Arent I, babe?
Yeah, I am your secret
Arent I, babe?
Arent I, babe?
Arent I, babe, babe?

Arent I
Arent I, babe?
