you may have a secret that you’re afraid to tell,
quiet coin-tossed wishes that you whisper to yourself,
no one needs to know it, and you’re sure that’s just as well,
until your little secret is your secret little hell,
+++ but it’s not a habit, it’s not a sin,
+++ it’s somewhere underneath your skin,
+++ they say that God won’t like it,
+++ have you asked Him yourself lately?

reaching for a reason for someone you could touch,
so you choose your profession but you can’t choose who you love,
you speak a secret language, and you hope someone picks up,
ah, but it’d be so much simpler to shout out at the top of your lungs
+++ that it’s not a habit, it’s not a sin,
+++ it’s somewhere underneath your skin
+++ you can try to fight it, but you can’t win,
+++ (who’d be the winner if you did?),
+++ if this whole life’s holy (and I say it is),
+++ surely you’re lovely just like this?
+++ and God’s not worried about a kiss,
+++ She’s got better…

you may have a secret that you’re afraid to tell,
don’t let your little secret be your secret little hell,
please don’t let your little secret be your secret little hell…

    Brad,

    This song is mine!! Although sometimes I blurt out my ‘secret’ out all over the place. Many, any, all can relate to this. Another good story. KJV
