"Secrets" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
She ain't waiting til she gets older,
Her feet are making tracks in the winter snow,
She got a rainbow that touches her shoulder,
She be headed where the thunder rolls,
Ah,ah,ah
She got rhythm,
Got that rhythm,of the road
Ah,ah,ah
She get crazy,
Woman get crazy if she can't go
Ah but ah,she just looking good.
She comes like the secret wind
She's as strong as the mountains,walks tall as a tree.
She been there before,she'll never give in,
She'll be gone tomorrow like the silent breeze.
Ah,ah,ah
She got rhythm,
Got that rhythm,of the road
Ah,ah,ah
She get crazy,
She get crazy if she can't go
Ah but ah,she just looking good.
You know how sometimes,you got to rush,
You're running blind,but she jumps the gun.
Question is,not does love exist,but when,she leaves,where she goes.
I got a feeling she don't know either,
Wait like the wind,watch where she blows.
Oh,oh, got that rhythm,
That sweet rhythm,of the road
Oh,oh,oh she get crazy,
Woman get crazy,if she can't go
Oh,oh a looking good
Ah yes!

    General CommentThis was written By David Lee Roth when he was in broke his foot doing a photo shoot for Van Halen 2 (the pix on the back where he's jumping) . He recived a bunch of get well cards from fans from Albuquerque NM, the cards were all native american themed with little proverbs in them ie:"She got a rainbow that touches her shoulder,
    She be headed where the thunder rolls". He just took all the little sayings and wrote around them about his favorite subject "Women"

    General CommentThis is a love song
    falling in "love" with a young girl on the rock tour

    She aint waiting til she gets older, (11-16 years old)
    Her feet are making tracks in teh winter snow,(feel her makin tracks'- she is a coke groupie, snorting or shooting the 'snow')
    She got a rainbow that touches her shoulder,(she is bi-sexually experimental)
    She be headed where the thunder rolls,(she is a rocker, played live, the lyric was often "where the silence goes", ie. she won't last long)
    Ah,ah,ah
    She got rhythm, (Hot sexual natural!!!!!)
    Got that rhythm,of the road (party girl)
    Ah,ah,ah
    She get crazy, (sexually wild and party wild)
    Woman get crazy if she cant go ("she can go"- like crazy in lust, or can't be trapped)
    Ah but ah,she just looking good.(cannot blame her, she is caught up in her powerful attractivity)
    She comes like the secret wind (her sexuality is secret, secrets, she arrives as a surprise- not all the time, 1 in 20)
    Shes as strong as the mountains,walks tall as a tree. (she is strong willed and strong presence)
    She been there before,she'll never give in,(will not love you, no matter what you try, she will not stay, been hurt, etc)
    She'll be gone tomorrow like the silent breeze.(bye bye, heart breaker that she is, she is going to go)
    Ah,ah,ah
    She got rhythm,
    Got that rhythm,of the road
    Ah,ah,ah
    She get crazy,
    She get crazy if she cant go
    Ah but ah,she just looking good.(still was worth it, so to speak)
    You know how sometimes,you got to rush,
    You're running blind,but she jumps the gun.(she still needs her sex)
    Question is,not does love exist,but when,she leaves,where she goes.(pride, who will get her next?)
    I got a feeling she dont know either,(she is drifting, no goal)
    Wait like the wind,watch where she blows.(sexual innuendo of a blow job)
    Oh,oh, got that rhythm,
    That sweet rhythm,of the road
    Oh,oh,oh she get crazy,
    Woman get crazy,if she cant go
    Oh,oh a looking good
    Ah yes!

    the song has a melancholy ending, especially live, reminiscent of "little dreamer" ending

    General CommentI was listening to it again, and if you listen to the last part again, dave changes the lyrics, "she got that writha', the sweet writher, of the rug", another sexual reference in disguise...

    General CommentI can't believe noone gets it; This song's about riding a motorcycle, probably a Harley. The guy hates to see her sitting in his living room so he takes her out, even on a sunny winter day in the snow. He doesn't know where he's gonna ride her to, just ride the wind wherever she goes. Got that rhythm of the road.
