Dirty Little Secret Lyrics

Let me know that I've done wrong
When I've known this all along
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away
Find out games you don't wanna play
You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone
Or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret; hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret
Who has to know?

When we live such fragile lives
It's the best way we survive
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away
Find out games you don't wanna play
You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone
Or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret; hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret
Who has to know?

The way she feels inside
(Inside)
Those thoughts I can't deny
(Can't deny)
These sleeping dogs won't lie
(Won't lie)
And all I've tried to hide
It's eating me apart
Trace this life out

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone
Or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret)

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone
Or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret; hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret
Dirty little secret
Dirty little secret
Who has to know?
Who has to know?

sometimes i pee in the sink, when the bathroom is busy

Is that your dirty little secret then? I like squeezing melons until they burst!

This song is so good! It has a really good, anthemic vibe! It could be about any secret you don't want anyone to know (like in the video with the cards), but I think it's more about a secret relationship. Not like a mistress or cheating on someone, but the fun of keeping the relationship quiet. Or maybe about seeing someone you know you shouldn't, like your best friends brother/sister, or your sister/brothers partner, that kind of thing. I LOVE THIS SONG!!!

@paperprincess - I love this song too!!!

All of us have so many secrets. Keeping them a secret is the best way to survive and live our fragile lives. The underlying thought in this song is definitely about keeping our dirty little secrets a secret.

Though it does sound like a guy wanting to keep his girlfriend a secret because certainly their relationship would not be accepted by his or her circle.

I totally agree with this song meaning.

@mydoglucky This meaning is Right on Man. thanks.

the first time i herd the song i thought it was about cheating, but now i think it's more along the lines of how everyone in the whole world has things they don't wanna tell other people about because they're scared of what they'll think or do or say. "When we live such fragile lives It's the best way we survive" secrets like not loving you're boyfriend or cutting yourself or being bulimic.

I just saw this guys at UA on their college tour and they rocked! They kicked things off with this song, one of my favorites. If you ever have a chance to see them live definitely do it, cause they were great

hmm yea im not even sure those lyrics are right and i could quite make out the (?) parts. ill edit em out as soon as i find out what it says,

An error occured.

i don't know if they are right. to me it sounds like he says "i'll keep you, my dirty little secret." but i could be wrong.

good song though. i wonder how the new album will measure up to the old.

Here are the CORRECT lyrics....

Let me know that I've done wrong When I've known this all along I go around a time or two Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away Find out games you don't wanna play You are the only one that needs to know

Who has to know When we live such fragile lives It's the best way we survive I go around a time or two Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away Find out games you don't wanna play You are the only one that needs to know

Tyson to me is singing about the secret to the secret.. "i'll keep you my dirty little secret...dont tell anyone"

But that doesnt really make much sense.. im assumeing it is 'give' kinda hard to tell though. But give makes awhole lot more sense then keep. It fits in more.

the meaning is really clear.....listen to it again..

"i'll keep you my dirty little secret. don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret." it's about tyson who has a dirty little secret... now the person he's saying don't tell anyone or you'll be another regret...could be a person or a secret....

the point is it's about tyson having a secret that no knows.....
