lyrics

I see you keep a secret
you must never let them know
if they learn the truth
they will never let you go

You walk amongst the lions
you act the part in daylight
yet in the darkness you cry
they would all know why

they must never know
you must never let it show
tears give you away
can't let them see you cry
it is better to obey
you don't want to die

They must never know
you must never let it show
let your lips speak the words
their ears wish to hear
save the truth for the birds
you wouldn't want to disappear

Just keep hoping for the day
you can run away
but you know they'd see it coming
somehow it's safer just to stay

I see you keep a secret
I bet they already know
but don't give them a show
they will never let you go
