"Secrets" as written by Anastacia L. Newkirk and Brion James....
Mm. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Late in September,
The mem'ries I can't erase
That shivered through Autumn,
The memory of your face.
As I grow much older, I wonder
Whatever I could have done
To fight all the madness.
But I close my eyes
To find truth in what I'm saying.
They thought it was all a lie.
How could they deny it
When I was just a little child?

Secrets I kept inside me,
No one can understand;
Secrets I had to hide,
'cause no one would hold my hand.
Well, secrets for me to know
And never for you to see;
Secrets for only me.

Emotions so bother my soul
To know that I felt such pain
I thought it would go far away
It did for the moment
Bind truth in what I'm saying
They thought it was all a lie
How could they deny it
When I was just a child?
Babe, come one now.

Secrets I kept inside me,
No one can understand;
Secrets I had to hide,
'cause no one would hold my hand.
Well, secrets for me to know
And never for you to see;
Secrets for only me.

The little ones they could not escape
The pain and misery.
Would no one ever set them free?
Why do you pretend to see
All the pain they had to go through?
Can't you hear them cry to you.

Secrets I kept inside me,
No one can understand;
Secrets I had to hide,
'cause no one would hold my hand.
Secrets for me to know
Never for you to see;
Secrets for only me.

Secrets I kept inside me,
No one can understand;
Secrets I had to hide,
'cause no one would hold my hand.
Secrets for me to know
Never for you to see;
Secrets for only me.

Oh, babies crying,
People are dying;
There's secrets inside their heart.
Oh yeah oh yeah
Come on
Come on and sing with me

Secrets I kept inside me,
No one can understand;
Secrets I had to hide,
'cause no one would hold my hand.
Secrets for me to know
Never for you to see;
Secrets for only me.

Secrets I
I know
There's nobody up in here
That can hear the cries I hear
Inside my mind
But I cry

    General CommentThis is about girls in abusive relationships, which Anastacia was in. She's saying that she was just a child, meaning young, and this man took advantage of her. Shee loved him, though, so she kept those secretes inside of her and let know one know the pain she was going through. She's telling other people to be strong and make yourslef happy as soon as possible if theyre in the same situation.
