The Secret

The sound of the engine, the feel of the tires
Your hands on the wheel and the smell from the fires
Streetlights and headlights on a road that goes nowhere
She left you, but you know she’s still out there
And somehow it always seemed like you were waiting for something
And somewhere they’re dancing the night away madly
The sweat fills their eyes as they’re clutching so sadly

So you struggled for words you could never find somehow
And there’s nowhere to hide ’cause the secret’s out now

Somehow it always seems like you would wake up from a dream

She never knew you. She only knew what she heard, so just once you’d pull her close and you’d whisper the words:
That you hated yourself for the things that you gave her
What you stole with your mind when your heart was impure
So you think you’ll forget all these nights like a sickness
And there’s nothing for miles everywhere in the darkness

But somewhere they’re dancing the night away madly
And the tears fill your eyes as you’re clutching her sadly
And you searched in yourself but could not find an answer
Now the feeling grows inside of you like a cancer

And the roar of the engine on a road that’s just endless
Her ghost is with you everywhere in the darkness
You struggled for words you could never say somehow
But there’s nowhere to run ’cause the secret’s out now

Somehow she always knew.
