Shhhhhh, do you wanna know a secret?
I can't wait to tell you,
That I know something you don't know.
I swore I'd tell nobody,
but I've just got to let you know.
Now cross your heart and hope to die,
Now hold your hands up nice and high,
Don't cross your fingers, don't you lie,
Now let me look into your eyes so,
Can you keep a secret?
And give your word you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And promise that you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
Can you keep a secret?
Shhhhhh.
I'll have to whisper something,
I don't want no one else to know.
If I don't tell somebody,
I feel like I just might explode.
Now cross your your heart and hope to die,
Now hold your hands up nice and high,
Don't cross your fingers, don't you lie,
Now let me look into your eyes so,
Can you keep a secret?
And give your word you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And promise that you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
Do you wanna know a secret?
Can you keep a secret?
Promise you won't tell anyone?
Can you keep a secret?
Do you promise?
And promise that you'll never, promise that you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And give your word you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And promise that you'll never, promise that you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And give your word you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And promise that you'll never, promise that you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And give your word you'll never tell?
Can you keep a secret?
And promise that you'll never, promise that you'll never tell?

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
