Can you keep a secret?
Promise not to tell?
I swear, please, try to keep it.
But you see, there is this person,
They've grabbed me by my heart and steadily pulled,
What could I do? I simply let myself be lulled.
I swear, please do not tell,
I have kept this secret, for so long, so well,
I promise I will always confide,
If you hold this secret, so I can keep my pride.
He is sweet, with a confident look,
With a sincere demeanor, never following life by the book,
He enraptures me, but no one understands.
Dark hair like a thunder sky,
With a glimmer of hope in his eye,
A smile to brighten up my life--
He has a love, yet concealed,
That I wish can be revealed.
So please, do not tell, please do be silent,
Keep it deep my confidant,
My heart is like a pendant,
If he were to find my truth, the shine would be gone,
The picture within destroyed and lone.
I have a secret that you must keep,
Please, as hard as must, please, in your heart let it sleep.
