"Your Secrets" as written by and Martin/murdoch/colburn/cooke/geddes/jackson/kildea....
To step out of your cradle is like coming down
I just had somebody tell me I was introspective to a fault
I'll be a dozer if I can
But I will contented be right now if we could keep our secret

You could tell me all your secrets
All you ever do is run and hide
You can keep it inside
If you tell me all your secrets
All I have to do is let it ride
I can keep it inside
But if it's as it seems, and I keep having dreams
About the two of us, then it's obvious
You should stop treating me like I was just a child
You should start treating me like I was just the same as you

To step out of your cradle is like coming down
I just had somebody tell me I was introspective to a fault
I'll be a dozer if I can
But I will contented be right now if we could keep our secret

We could be a little closer
The mystery you're trying to preserve
You don't need in reserve
We should be a little closer
Intimacy has the greater charm
And it would do no harm
To give a little way, oh, please stop holding away
You could even read me your poetry
If you would stop treating me like I was just a child
You should start realising that I'm just as wild as you
Stop treating me like I was just a child

    General CommentI think these lines sum up the whole song:

    "We should be a little closer
    Intimacy has the greater charm
    And it would do no harm"

    General Comment"I just had somebody tell me I was introspective to a fault" is seriously one of my all-time favorite song lyrics. From any band.

    This song is such a perfect lyrical conclusion to the Books EP -- you've got "Your Cover's Blown," with this shy guy who's trying, and failing miserably, to present himself as a player (and who writes poetry to woo the woman); "Wrapped Up In Books," about, I think, two people who are too introverted to ever admit their true feelings for each other; and this, which just seems like the culmination of the previous two songs -- the shy guy trying to finally get somewhere with this standoffish girl by appealing to her own apparent bookishness ("You could even read me your poetry"). It's like a collection of anthems for romantic nerds, which is awesome.
