The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret
Lyrics
Well Iíve got a secret, I cannot say
A modern movement to give it away
Youíve got somethin that I understand
Hold it in tightly, call on command
Leap of faith, do you doubt?
Cut you in I just cut you out

Whatever you do
Donít tell anyone
Whatever you do
Donít tell anyone

Look for reflections, in your face
Canine devotion, time canít erase
Out on the corner or
Locked in your room
I never believe them and I never assume
Stuck in believe, there is a lie
Promise is promise, an eye for an eye
But weíve got something to reveal
No one can know how we feel

Whatever you do
Donít tell anyone
Whatever you do
Donít tell anyone

I think you already know
How far Iíd go not to say
You know the art isn't gone
And Iím taking our song to the grave

Whatever you do
Donít tell anyone
Whatever you do
Donít tell anyone
