"(We Have) No Secrets" as written by and Carly Simon....
We have no secrets
We tell each other everything
About the lovers in the past
And why they didn't last
We share a cast of characters from A to Z
We know each others fantasies
And though we know each other better when we explore
Sometimes I wish
Often I wish
That I never knew some of those secrets of yours

The water was cold
The beach was empty but for one
Now you were lying in the sun
Wanting and needing no-one
Then some child came, you never asked for her to come
She drank a pint of your rum
And later when you told me
You aid she was a bore
Sometimes I wish
Often I wish
That I never knew some of those secrets of yours

In the name of honesty, in the name of what is fair
You always answer my questions
But they don't always answer my prayers
And though I know you say that it's me that you adore
Sometimes I wish
Often I wish
That I never, never, never knew
Some of those secrets of yours
Some of those secrets of yours
Some of those secrets of yours
We have no secrets
Telling each other most everything now

    My OpinionLOVE this song because off it's catchy beat,The jumpy piano playing off of the acoustic guitar. The writing is sharp to (although that's expected with Carly Simon) Off course the song is about a person in a relationship waiting to know more about their partner but at the same time afraid of the truth.

    General CommentThe meaning seems straightforward - the pros and cons of honesty in a relationship. I too love the arrangement and music along with Carly's great delivery.
