"Secret Garden" as written by Carol Ann Decker and Ronald Phillip Rogers....
There's more than a feeling than a differing mind to anatomy

On my own who's going to hold me?
A burning heart lifts me up to my life

I can't run from the truth and I won't try
'Cause it wouldn't matter who you were in this world

There's nothing on earth that we can't change

But on the inside I could never be the same

Came into the garden
Babe
Oh
You got to come on in

Come into the secret garden
We're changing the way we're made

And in our own eyes
We're going to move the mountain

So how do you see me now? Can you see me?
Don't butter me up and tell me lies

I've seen the black and white coloured in your eyes
But trapped in a cage is not the place

You can leave me or cover it up to ease your mind
In this confusion I can always see the light into the garden

Come into the garden
Babe
Oh
Come on in
...

You'll never know it feels not to be one thing or the other
If there was a world without hypocrisy

You never know I might just be something you need

It wouldn't matter who you were in this world

Knowing yourself is so much more

Take one step forward and you open up the door

Come into the garden
Babe
Oh
Come on in
...
Come into the garden
Babe
Oh
Come on in
...
Come into the garden
Babe
Oh
Come on in
...

    General CommentBelieve it or not, this song is about gender realignment. Really! When I first found that out, I was amazed, but it really is written from the point of view of a transexual. (Read it and check out the references.) I suspect Decker was widening the issues and using it as a metaphor for the way many of us have to confront our own natures and realise that those round us might struggle to handle the truth. I can't imagine she has any real experience of a sex-change operation (it was a staggering success if so!!)
