I
Lost your toy lover boy
In the mirror take a look
You're much older now

II
You used to be twenty-three
Suddenly the summer ends
And you don't know how

III
It was in this fun, hit and run
Sweet talk was your middle name
Always on the prowl

IV
Just one dance, no romance
Living like an alley cat
And you sure could howl

Chorus:

Your secret's safe with me
You're tired and lonely
The only cure will be love

Your secret's safe with me
Ain't no contender
You got no fist in your glove

Your secret's safe with me
You're searching for someone
Whose got no lies to conceal

Your secret's safe with me
Waiting for someone
Whose eyes will tell you it's real

Whose eyes will tell you it's real
Whose eyes will tell you it's

V
Live and learn wait your turn
Don't you know the deepest love
Comes to those who wait

VI
Why be smart, hear your heart
Leading you to someone who
Know it's not too late


Chorus 2:
Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Tired and lonely
The only cure will be love

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Ain't no contender
You got no fist in your glove

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
You're searching for someone
Who's got no lies to conceal

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Waiting for someone
Whose eyes will tell you it's real
(Will tell you it's real)

Whose eyes will tell you it's real
(Whose eyes will tell you it's real)
Whose eyes will tell you it's real
(Whose eyes will tell you it's real)
Whose eyes will tell you it's real
(Whose eyes will tell you it's real)

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Tired and lonely
The only cure will be love

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Ain't no contender
You got no fist in your glove

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Searching for someone
Who's got no lies to conceal

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Waiting for someone
Whose eyes will tell you it's real

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)

Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)
Your secret's safe with me
(Your secret's safe with me)

    General CommentAnother song by Michael Franks that dishes out sound advice to "men on the prowl", looking for one-night-stands, no permanent relationships, "wham-bang thank you ma'am" type. Despite this seemingly "fun, hit and run" lifestyle, the song tells about how tiring and loneliness it can be and with a warning that time flies so fast. Living a double life - which is a paradox of having fun all the time yet feeling lonely at the end of the day is a secret that most guys (or gals) might be experiencing. The only cure is to find true love (a soul mate) and feel the love in one's heart, not the mind - the source of sweet talk, lies, and deception. Love is and will always be the answer! :D Note: See my comments on MF's song SOUL MATE for more sound advice.
