"Can You Keep a Secret?" as written by Matt Squire, Alexander Deleon, Alex Marshall, Ian Crawford, Cash Colligan and Alex Johnson....
It's true that I'm a silver shadow
And you are always on my mind
You, you need to get over here
We'll disappear

Your secrets safe
And no one has to know
I'm your getaway
And a little bit more than you can take
I can make
Everything feel so damn good

I could have sworn
We danced right here tonight
Come on and dance with me
Come on and dance with me, baby
And don't you know
I'm just here tonight?
You wanna dance with me
You wanna dance with me all night
Nobody there will ever see your eyes
Don't talk, don't walk
Just the two of us
Dance with me
Dance with me
Come on and dance with me
Dance with me, baby

Soon we're heading to a place
Where I'll prove
I'm all you want and more
You, you need to let it unfold
Just like you're told

Your secrets safe
And no one has to know
I'm your getaway
And a little bit more than you can take
I can make
Everything feel so damn good

I could have sworn
We danced right here tonight
Come on and dance with me
Come on and dance with me, baby
And don't you know
I'm just here tonight?
You wanna dance with me
You wanna dance with me all night
Nobody there will ever see your eyes
Don't talk, don't walk
Just the two of us
Dance with me
Dance with me
Come on and dance with me
Dance with me, baby

Soon we're heading to a place
Where I'll prove
I'm all you want and more
You, you need to let it unfold
Just like you're told

Your secrets safe
And no one has to know
I'm your getaway
And a little bit more than you can take
I can make
Everything feel so damn good

I could have sworn
We danced right here tonight
Come on and dance with me
Come on and dance with me, baby
And don't you know
I'm just here tonight?
You wanna dance with me
You wanna dance with me all night
Nobody there will ever see your eyes
Don't talk, don't walk
Just the two of us
Dance with me
Dance with me
Come on and dance with me
Dance with me, baby

    General CommentWhen i listen to this song i always think of
    a girl who's going to get married with her fiancee picked out by her family.
    The guy is waiter at their weddinglocation and they fall in love.
    In a week time they go out do fun stuff with eachotherr

    nd the bridge they having sex for the 1st time
    after that she needs to make a decision
    so i see a woman walking down the ile looking at him, instead of her fiancee with tears in here eyes

    UH HUH

    General Commentthis song just makes me want to dance,
    by myself or with someone in a club.
    it's just great.

    i think it's about using dancing to escape.
    the way he says -
    I could have sworn
    We disappeared tonight
    Come on and dance with me


    this song was great.

    General CommentI’m pretty damn sure it’s about a guy who’s a girl’s fuck-around
    And he wants them to be more than that, he wants them to be
    A real couple not just fuck buddies and obviously something
    Bad is happening in her life in order for her to need someone to
    Fool around with and he wants to help her but she doesn’t want to
    Be in a serious relationship or whatever so he stays with her anyways.
