no one wants to be a best-kept secret,
+++ like a habit or a scar,
no one wants to make a perfect exit
+++ through the trapdoor in your heart,
+++++ so I won’t tell you what I’m thinking,
+++++ like before, that’s for sure,
‘cause I don’t wanna be your best-kept secret anymore..

if it’s so good, somebody would’ve bought it,
+++ like a record on the bargain shelf,
& if we’re so good, you could’ve told your parents,
+++ or your best friend, or yourself,
+++++ but you keep all your options open,
+++++ in this world of either/or,
so I don’t wanna be your best-kept secret anymore..

(it’s) a cloudy day, but still the sun is somewhere,
+++ somewhere hidden from our eyes,
& there’re no clouds that I can make out either,
+++ just a thickness across the sky,
+++++ I won’t be there when you need me,
+++++ like before, now I’m sure,
that I don’t wanna be your best-kept secret anymore…
