"Dear Diary" as written by and Matthew John Herbert Roisin Murphy....
Dear diary
My dear
Got to keep it all inside
Got to keep it locked behind a
Golden wall of silence

You see I have my pride
And I won't be telling him
Anytime soon
Too afraid to say it
I wouldn't want to embarrass myself
Telling everybody the truth

No I
I won't send this Valentines
(Oh my)
Violets are blue
(I won't send it)
And if you don't receive this Valentines
(I won't pretend that)
Doesn't mean that is ain't true
And I'm not thinking of you

We won't kiss
I won't tell
Never cross these lips
Never break the spell
I decided to go on denying myself
Living alone
Living a lie

No I
I won't send this Valentines
(Oh my)
Violets are blue
(I won't send it)
And if you don't receive this Valentines
(I won't pretend that)
Doesn't mean that is ain't true
And I'm not thinking of you

(I)
I keep living a lie
(Oh my)
I keep living a lie
(No I)
I keep living a lie
(Oh my)
I keep living a lie

To never speak of it
Or hear the music of it
We'll play a symphony
In my wildest dreams

No I
I won't send this Valentines
(Oh my)
Violets are blue
(I won't send it)
And if you don't receive this Valentines
(I won't pretend that)
Doesn't mean that is ain't true
And I'm not thinking of you

No I
I won't send this Valentines
(Oh my)
Violets are blue
(I won't send it)
And if you don't receive this Valentines
(I won't pretend that)
Doesn't mean that is ain't true
And I'm not thinking of you

I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie

(I won't send this Valentines)
(Violets are blue)
(And if you don't receive this Valentines)

    General CommentIts a really good song one of the best on the album. I really like the use of organic sound making with kitchen appliances etc - Roisin admitted in interviews that the sounds were made like this.
    Meanings are fairly self explanatory. The woman in the song won't reveal her feelings to this man but she would write them in diary.
