Lyrics

Cherished Secrets

Written By: Tom Crider

CHERISHED SECRETS

TELL ME ALL YOUR DIRTY SECRETS
YOU CRY THE RIVER AND I’LL DAM UP A LAKE
HOPE IT’S DEEP AND DARK I’M A FISHING FOR DETAILS
WE’LL MAKE PRIVATE MATTERS OUR OWN GIVE AND TAKE

CHERISHED SECRETS, I DESIRE
RAISES PASSIONS, HIGHER, HIGHER
THRILLS ME, PLEASE ME, SETS ME ON FIRE

I ADMIRE YOUR OBSESSIONS
LONELY LONGINGS SAFE WITH ME
I SO CHERISH THESE CONFESSIONS
A MESSY LIFE CAN BE SUCH SWEET AGONY

(CHORUS)

CHERISHED SECRETS, HUSH HUSH, HUSH HUSH
CHERISHED SECRETS, HUSH HUSH
PRIVATE MEETINGS, INCOGNITO, UNDERCOVER, SHY, SLY PEOPLE
CHERISHED SECRETS, CHERISHED SECRETS

TELL ME ALL YOUR CHERISHED SECRETS
I’LL TELL YOU MINE FROM TIME TO TIME
YOU CAN TRUST ME WITH YOUR QUINTESSENCIAL
I AM NONJUDGMENTAL, I'LL BE GENTLE

(CHORUS, BRIDGE)

IN THE CLOAK ROOM, IN THE KITCHEN, IN YOUR OFFICE, IN A CAR
ON THE GOLF COURSE, ELEVATORS, BATHROOM STALLS OR ON THE BAR
CHERISHED SECRETS, OH, OH, OH, CHERISHED SECRETS, OH,OH….

Invisable Walls

Written By: Tom Crider

INVISABLE WALLS

I'VE SPENT A LIFETIME BEHIND INVISIBLE WALLS
A LOT OF ME AND MY TIME BEHIND INVISIBLE WALLS
BUILT UP FOR SELF DEFENCE, HOW IT HINDERS ACCOMPLISHMENTS
NOW THEY TORMENT WHILE I LAMENT ABOUT INVISIBLE WALLS

THE THING ABOUT WALLS IS, NO ONE KNOWS THEY’RE THERE
YOU CAN’T REALLY SEE ME AND I DON’T KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH TO CARE
BRICK BY BRICK STONE BY STONE, BUILD IT HIGH TILL NOTHING SHOWS
LOST IN DARKNESS, ALL ALONE BEHIND INVISABLE WALLS

SOME LIVE IN ISOLATION, AN INTERACTION STARVATION
PLACE US ALL ON PROBATION, TO STEP OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES

ADD A BRICK FOR LOW SELF- ESTEEM
INSECURITES IN OUR BLOOD STREAM
THROW ON A STONE FOR THE WAY WE LOOK
AND OTHER PSYCHOLOGICAL GOBBLEDEGOOK
I CAN’T FIND YOU, YOU CAN’T FIND ME
IF WE STAY HIDDEN NO ONE WILL SEE
LET’S TEAR THEM DOWN AND LET THEM FALL
AND STEP OUT FROM BEHIND INVISABLE WALLS…

(INSTRUMENTAL)

SOME LIVE IN ISOLATION, AN INTERACTION STARVATION
PLACE US ALL ON PROBATION, TO STEP OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES

LONELY SHOULDN’T DEFINE US
IS YOUR STOIC STRENGH’S A FACADE
UNLOCK THIS FORTRESS, LET’S TRUST
LOVE TO BRIDGE INVISIBLE WALLS

I'VE SPENT A LIFETIME BEHIND INVISIBLE WALLS
A LOT OF ME AND MY TIME BEHIND INVISIBLE WALLS
BRICK BY BRICK STONE BY STONE BUILT HIGH TILL NOTHING SHOWS
LOST IN DARKNESS, ALL ALONE BEHIND INVISABLE WALLS
TEAR THEM DOWN AND LET THEM FALL
AND STEP OUT FROM BEHIND INVISABLE WALLS
YEH HOW THEY TORMENT WHILE I LAMENT ABOUT INVISIBLE WALLS
