"Secrets" as written by and Sean Francis Caleb/mccabe Payne....
Everyone's got secrets
Dirty little secrets
Have I got one on you
(Have I got one on you)
Although they may be secrets,
They may show your weakness
Well are they really true
(well are they really true)

Don't tell your mates
On the council estates
'Cause there's no one to trust
Don't tell the sky as it spits down in your eye
But tell the priest if you must

'Cause everyone's got problems
Everyone's got problems
And everyone's got stress
Controlling our relations avoiding situations
That end up in a mess

Don't be afraid
If your thoughts are mislaid
'Cause there's nothing to fear
Don't get upset if your memories
Make regrets because we've all got them here

Secrets , secrets, secrets
Are for keeping, keeping, keeping
And if you tell them
They lose their meaning

Don't tell your mates
On the council estates
'Cause there's no one to trust
Don't tell the sky as it spits down in your eye
But tell the priest if you must

Secrets , secrets, secrets
Are for keeping, keeping, keeping
And if you tell them
They lose their meaning x 2

Everyone's got secrets
Dirty little secrets
Have I got one on you
(Have I got one on you)
Although they may be secrets,
They may show your weakness
Well are they really true
(well are they really true) x 3

    General Commentdoesnt mean that at all.
    I think its about everyone having their own problems but hiding them from everyone else. It appears from outside that nobody else has problems. the upbeat, happy go lucky tone of this tune hides the "dirty secrets" or problems of the Zutons.

    General CommentI partly agree with person above me, but I think that the singer thinks that everyone should keep their secrets to thelselves because everyone has them, and if they were all out it would be a mess of everyones problems. I think that the singer is telling you that you are not the only one to have problems, and just because you have them does not mean that everyone needs to know. That's my interpretation anyway- there isn't a wrong or right interpretation of any song.

    General CommentStatement to Rupert Murdoch and the tabloid phone-hackers perhaps? Only joking :)
