Dirty Little Secret

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET - Written by Carroll Bryant 


You always made me believe that the sun
Would always shine
And then you made a path 
And headed in another direction

You gave your words to me and
Wrapped them up in pretty paper 
And with a pretty smile
Gave it to me without affection

Did you think that I would never learn?
You must have thought that someday
Surely
I would never keep it
So now I give it back to you 
So take it
And with it
You can keep your dirty little secret 

I read about you in the paper that I just invented
Another glass of something and 
I knew that I was hallucinating  

I couldn't act uninterested in it
So I just pretended that I read it twice
And still
I didn't know what it was saying

Did you think that I would look away?
Or see right through the wall
That you instigated
And so now I will knock it down
On top of you
And your little dirty secret

And take heed upon these words that I have written
Hearts and all that have been bitten
Spell it out in English with the blood you couldn't drink
And here me now
And screw you later
My heart's been broken by much greater
People than you are
So there!
So now
What are you gonna do?

You always made me believe that tomorrows another day
And then you made some kind of break
And headed for a new connection

You gave your words to me
And sent them with a bow
And with a gestured wink 
Gave it with some kind of power

Did you think that I would never learn?
You must have thought that someday
Surely
I would never keep it
So now I give it back to you 
So take it
And with it
You can keep your dirty little secret
