"Secret" as written by and Golde/roberts....
We lead two different lives
Just like two lines that never cross
And here we are together
Standing closer than we are
But we're still standing here untouched
Too scared to make a move
We want so much to touch
And we can't wait forever
We know it's dangerous
For us to be together

How do we ever keep this secret
How do we keep it in the dark
And if we dare to taste our weakness
How could we tear ourselves apart
Why do we keep this love together
Didn't we know right from the start
That we would have to keep this secret
Or forever stay apart

I watch you coming to me
Walking in the pouring rain
I can't help looking at you
Wishing I could stay away
So many times I've tried in vain
To close my eyes and pray it goes away
But I can't stop myself from feeling
To let you go would be too much
For me to take

How do we ever keep this secret
How do we deep it in the dark
And if we dare to taste our weakness
How could we tear ourselves apart
Why do we keep this love together
Didn't we know right from the start
That we would have to keep this secret
Or forever stay apart

I can't help thinking
When I look into your eyes
How much I need you
It's so hard to hide

How do we ever keep this secret
How do we keep it in the dark
And if we dare to taste our weakness
How could we tear ourselves apart
Why do we keep this love together
Didn't we know right from the start
That we would have to keep this secret
Or be doomed to stay apart

    General CommentThis song came out about the same time I discovered that the person I was married to was not the person I was in love with.

    General CommentIts so sad to see this song only have 1 comment. Its such a great song, I think its the greatest song I've ever heard in my life. I wish more people would hear this song and appreciate it today.

    To me, this song is about being in love with a person we shouldn't be inlove with.

    Its such a beautiful song. There's no any modern songs that are as good as this. Nor there is any modern band that's as good as Heart.

    General CommentThis song really means a lot to me... In every way possible... This is about a Love that is never meant to happen, This song tells us of a unconventional couple caught in a situation that they themselves didn't anticipate to grow into a beautiful relationship. At first they are just looking for fun or just an escape form reality, to divert the true situation and hoping that they will forget whats really happening in the real world. But Love came and they are hooked with each other. The want to keep their relationship but how? how long? and when to give up? They have different partners for so long but they found comfort in each other in other words they are "Perfect" and bound for each other..

    This song is the most beautiful ive ever listened... I hope that I can give justice to its real meaning... very sad song but its true and it really happen literally...
