Secret Songs

She loves to write, she loves to dance,
She’d change the world given half the chance,
But there’s nothing that she loves more than to sing…
She has a smile for everyone,
And she loves writing secret songs,
But she knows you only want her for one thing.

So she keeps it all inside,
Every thought in her mind.

She’ll brighten up your day,
Leave little notes around to say,
That all she ever thinks about is you…
But she knows deep in her heart,
And she knew it from the start,
In her life, love is too good to be true.

So she keeps it all inside,
Every thought in her mind.

Hoping there will come a time,
When she’ll no longer have to hide,
And that maybe you’ll reach out a helping hand…
But she’s been down this road before,
She’s now too bruised to ignore,
That you’re never really going to understand.

So she keeps it all inside,
Every thought in her mind.

And when it all becomes too much,
You don’t listen, you just touch,
So she tries for a while to pretend…
That she can mould herself to be,
The girl that you used to see,
But the story is already at its end.

So she keeps it all inside,
Every thought in her mind.

Then you’ll say that you’ll still talk,
Go for a drink, go for a walk,
And she’ll hope it will be like it was before…
So you’ll go out for a pint,
And then ask her to stay the night,
But when she leaves, post the keys back through your door.

So she keeps it all inside,
Every thought in her mind.

She’ll tell herself to move on,
And she’ll keep writing secret songs,
Pour her feelings out for nobody to see…
Every day her heart keeps breaking,
As she writes her hand is shaking,
And I know all this because that girl is me.
