The Man Who Stole A Leopard
 Lyrics

by Duran Duran

Do you know where we are?
I'm longing for the dark
Of our nocturnal life
It begins and ends with you

Don't spill my secret

You were once running wild
Hiding in the morning mist
Game demands
I make you mine

I thought that I could resist
But the leopard in you
Silently preyed on me

I made my way back home
(Did you follow her?)
I handled her with care
(Were you in control?)

So elegant and sleek
(Were you not afraid?)
I need her to be near
(Does she belong to you?)

Don't spill my secret

You were once running wild
Hiding in the morning mist
Game demands
I make you mine

I thought that I could resist
But the leopard in you
Silently preyed on me

Deserted by my friends
(Don't they understand?)
She's so much more than them
(How could they compare?)

So now she's just for me
(No one else can see?)
I watch her while she sleeps
(Be sure she dreams of you?)

Don't spill my secret

(It's been quite a while)
Since we were last outside
(And do you miss the chase)

Now that we've both been tamed
(Inside this gilded cage)
Prisoners of our thoughts
(You saved me from myself)

Don't spill my secret
Don't spill my secret
Don't spill my secret
Don't spill my secret

Don't spill my secret
Don't spill my secret
Don't spill my secret
