In My Secret Life

I saw you this morning
You were moving so fast
Can’t seem to loosen my grip
On the past
And I miss you so much
There’s no one inside
And we’re still making love
In my secret life.

I smile when I’m angry
I cheat and I lie
I’ll do what I have to do
To get back
But I know what is wrong
And I know what is right
And I die for the truth
In my secret life.

Hold on, hold on my brother
My sister hold on tight
I finally got my orders
I’ll be marching through the morning
Marching through the night
Moving ‘cross the borders
Of my secret life.

Look through the papers
Makes you want to cry
Nobody cares if the people
Live or die
And the dither (?) wants you thinking
That’s it’s either black or white
Thank God it’s not that simple
In my secret life.

I bite my lip
I buy what I’m told
From the latest hit
To the wisdom of old
But I’m always alone
And my heart is like ice
And it’s crowded and cold
In my secret life.
