"The Secret" as written by Chris Carter and Cosey Newby....
On the way to grey
I could hardly wait
To see you again
To feel your hands

Covering me
Til the storm is done
What seemed to be the end
Was not the end at all

When I hear the rain
Should I be afraid
For my, for my
For my... life

Why do you look at me that way?
I told you
That I was too busy to see you
I would never
Keep a secret from you
From you
From you

Is it over?
I am fine
Thank you dearly
For your time

I'll be leaving
Don't you cry
I'll be back soon
At least I'll try

Can't you see
There is no time to think
Selfishly

Yesterday's gone
Tomorrow's here
Can't turn back now
I won't quit

I still love you
I swear
I always will

    General Commentthis is a great song over all the best of the album, and possibly the band, im not sure if many of you are aware there is 2 versions of the song, not that they really differ just one is the album version, and the other is slower, like 8 minutes i believe. over all great song from a great band.

    General Commentthe ending from the EP demo is better...but overall the mastered version from The Weaks End is good as well.....but the reason i like the other one is cause the ending reminds me of Pink Floyd it's just so mellow and trippy and good

    General Commenti think that was metaphorically speaking . it sounds like a realationship put on hold to take care of buisness .

    the ending is very nice . it makes me feel lost .

    General Commentthis song is absolutely beautiful. it is driving with a rather listless and serene undertone. as if he's at peace with being desperate. it's so hard to try to explain the meaning because it is so relaxed and random... like a dream.

    General CommentHere's my interpretation of the song, because I have been in a similar situation I think it fits: He is with a girl who he depends on utterly, but he has to take care of things in his life... meanwhile she thinks he doesn't love her, he fights this ("I told you I was too busy to see you, I would never keep a secret from you") but only half-heartedly, not enough to convince her, so she breaks up with him. He is resigned, tired, and too withdrawn to fight it, so he closes up inside and lets her go... and his new secret is that he doesn't want it to end at all, he loves her to death and needs her.

    General CommentAt one of their concerts, i remember them saying this song meant alot to them because it was about their relationship with God.

    General CommentThis sounds like a Staind song... take that how you want to. Disappointment, but other than this one, I really like this band. Sure sounds like he's talking about God. Are they a Christian band?

    General Commentthis song is about a relationship that is very hard and they both thought they were over and done... but their love keep eachother together. like these lyrics "what seemed to be the end was not the end at all. "

    General CommentI believe this song to be a love song about two people who are deeply in love, and they are goin through some rough times (the storm) and they must rely on thier love to get them through..he is saying not to cry he will be back soon, and he will love her always. they thought they were through, but it was not the end at all....only the beggining if they hold on.
