Just because we were young
Girl, I kept your secrets
Because both of our kids were young
I pray their minds will be free of your deceptions.
Secrets, O how much they can harm
Couples dirty little secrets
How many deaths have you caused?
Dirty little secrets, O how you mar the soul and heart.
Secrets, prognosticate the lies that now come
Why always the need to bury a truth?
Secrets, used to skirt life’s real issues
In the mirror, what is that looking back at you?
Do you even know what you are, dirty little secrets.
The human experience, we all keep some secrets
Sometimes to protect the heart of a friend
We all know it’s okay to lie, to deceive
I’ll just pretend I don’t know, your dirty little secrets.
I wish that perfect I could be
A disgrace is all I see
When I see the secrets inside of me
Lord I come to you on bent knees
Please cleanse me of all, my dirty little secrets.
