Once we rode together in a metal firecracker
You told me I was your queen
You told me I was your biker
You told me I was everything

Once I was in your blood, you were obsessed with me
You wanted to paint my picture
You wanted to undress me
You wanted to see me in your future

All I ask is don't tell anybody the secrets
Don't tell anybody the secrets I told you

Once we rode together in a metal firecracker
You told me I was your queen
You told me I was your biker
I used to think I'd always be your girl

And we turned on ZZ Top, turn it up real loud
I used to think you were strong
I used to think you were proud
I used to think that nothing could go wrong

All I ask is don't tell anybody the secrets
Don't tell anybody the secrets I told you
