DARK SECRETS

Old dark secrets, how they haunt me, they’re always very near,
Old dark secrets, how they taunt me, how they whisper in my ear,
When I’m dreaming that I’m flying,
and shining with the stars,
above my past,
I’m free at last.
From those old dark secrets.

Old dark secrets, how they track me, I can never lose this tail
Old dark secrets how they stalk me, they’re always on my trail
When I’m trying to make some distance,
to find a resting place
a breathing space,
before I face
those old dark secrets.

Standing on the beach, gazing out to sea,
the rhythm of the waves, the sound of what will be,
the ebb and flow of days, rise and fall of years,
counting up our hopes to trade against our fears.
we try to find our feet, we try to find our voice,
lose our clean hands on a wrong turn.
when we make a foolish choice
and find our self a long, long way from home.

Old dark secrets, how they haunt me, they’re always very near,
Old dark secrets, how they taunt me, how they whisper in my ear.
When I’m yearning for a future
where I can leave the past behind,
and I can find
some peace of mind
from these old dark secrets.
