lyrics

SECRET LIFE

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



If you wish to be the very one,
That you really ought to be,
You may be just afraid,
That people will let you down.
Though your inner voice is saying, that you have to run
From all that sympathy
With the man you play,
You can’t hurt them anyhow.

So you have to fool them
By playing in the dark
Just the honest real man, that you are.

But what’s in a secret life, that cannot bear the light?
What’s in a secret life and being torn inside?
What’s in a secret life, having to lie and hide
And keep it a secret.


So you simply choose to sacrifice
The natural man in you
To a world that loves
The man, who does not exist.
But your inner man will always catch you in your lies
And remind you of the truth,
Until you’ll have enough
Of having to resist.

Wishing, you needn’t fool them
By playing in the dark
Just the honest real man, that you are.

For what’s in a secret life, that cannot bear the light?
What’s in a secret life and being torn inside?
What’s in a secret life, having to lie and hide
And keep it a secret.
