Secret Desire

Secret Desire

Well, you tell me that you love me, I’m the “Only One” for you,
that no other in this overpopulated World will do.
And you tell me that you “need me” and “desire me’, and such,
But I’m beginning to suspect the lady doth protest too much!

Because I’m starting to hear niggling little voices in my ear,
And they’re whispering and hinting things that i don’t want to hear:

Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
She’s on fire for someone else, you see.
Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
You’re such a liar, you’re holding out on me.

Now each time I try to call, I get your answering machine,
It says you’re ”unavailable” – what exactly does that mean?
You tell me I’m your north and south, that you love me the best,
But there’s a cold wind from the east: looks like our love is heading west!

Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
Oh, don’t deny it, I see it in your eyes.
Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
I’m sick and tired of all your stupid lies.

It’s a self-fulfilling prophesy so it should not surprise me:
Once again I’ve loved too well but not too wisely.
And maybe it’s unworthy of me to be so suspicious,
But, let’s face it, your behaviour’s nothing short of meretricious!

Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
She’s on fire for someone else, you see.
Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
You’re such a liar, you’re holding out on me.

Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
Oh, don’t deny it, I see it in your eyes.
Secret Desire! Secret Desire!
I’m sick and tired of all your stupid lies.
I see it in your eyes.
Don’t give me any more of your lies.
I’m sick of all your lies!
