Lyrics

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET
(SPEACE/PASSADA-RAO/COOPER/JAGODA)

My dirty little secret's not a secret anymore
I can't even keep it from myself
Everybody's secret looks the same behind closed doors
If I had only known before I fell
Can you even recognize the better part of me?
Under cover in disguise where I want to be
Anywhere but me

My dirty little secret spills out on the kitchen floor
As you pour your second cup of tea
I can't clean it up the way I always did before
On the sly so no one else can see
Can you even recognize the better part of me?
In my lies and alibis - where I want to be
Anywhere but me

If I'm good enough for you, am I good enough for me?

Can you even recognize the heart inside my sleeve?
What is left for me to hide, who's left to believe?
Anyone but me
