lyrics

Can you keep a secret and guard it with your life
Can you keep a secret, cross your heart, hope to die
Would it stay between us, just simple words between us
Can you keep a secret this time

If I kept a secret and didn't tell you
If I kept a secret but you found out the truth
Would it be strange between us, tense and blue between us
If I kept a secret from you

I don't see what the big deal is
Come on, be a realist
I can't tell you everything
Now I can't tell you anything

Can it be a secret if everybody knows
Can it be a secret if words are words and anything goes
Nothing stays between us, nothing's simple between us
Can it be a secret if you know

I don't see what the big deal is
Come on, be a realist
I can't tell you everything
Now I can't tell you anything

Can you keep a secret and guard it with your life
Can you keep a secret, cross your heart, hope to die
Would it stay between us, just simple words between us
Can you keep a secret this time
