Track Name: The Secret's Always Safe With Me
This should be good
Exaggerated, misunderstood
Everyone has taken a side and now they’re tongue-tied
I wouldn’t if I could
For the very first time I can see with my eyes
How to be unhappy
And now I know I’ll never be

This should be fun
A little student demonstration
Everyone has stated their rights, God gave them rights
Let me know when they’re done
For the very first time I can see in your eyes
What it means to be happy
(The secret’s always safe with me)

and if it means I’m wrong then it means I’m wrong
it’s not surprising
(would you) stay and just be wrong with me?

and if it means I’m poor then it means I’m poor
it’s not alarming
(would you) stay and just be poor with me?

For the very first time I can see in your eyes
What it means to be happy
(Your secret’s always safe with me)

For the very first time I can see with my eyes
How to be unhappy
And now I know I’ll never be
I’ll never be
Track Name: Soft Sins
There are many needs
But I wouldn’t call them love
You thought I laughed
When I heard you wore gloves
But I only laugh
When everybody does
Self-destruction only takes a little shove
I only look when everyone does
At least you were exciting
I never was

‘Cos you were ruined before you even knew what goes on in a bed
And you were ruined before you even ever had a chance
And you were ruined before you even ever said…

What do I care
if you are all alone?
All of these years
And still you’re not sure
Well, it could be the flesh
And it could be the thorn
These soft sins never leave you alone
In your bed at night you hear me at the door
These soft sins never leave you alone

You thought I laughed when I heard you were dancing
You thought I laughed when I questioned your clothes
You thought I laughed when I caught you just looking
I understand you even more than you know
In your bed at night I am standing at the door
Do you understand me more than I know?

‘Cos you were ruined before you even knew what goes on in a bed
And you were ruined before you even ever had a chance
And you were ruined before you even ever said…
