Secret Life

By Bruce Clifford

Secret life
What's my name
Who am I
It's not a game

Late at night
The edge the cure
Secret life
It's what I live for

Certain things are important to me
Where do I begin to tell my story

Secret life
To the other side
What did you say
I will show you off with pride

Late at night
The lines are drawn
Secret life
A new world is born

Secret life
I feel so torn
Who am I
My mind is worn

Late at night
The fear and rage
Secret life
Don't go away

Secret life
You are so dear
Hold me close
Never disappear

In my secret life it's not the same
I'm free to be me, for all to see
My thoughts are mine and mine alone
It's a place where I'm safe and free

Certain things are important to me
Where do I begin to tell my story

Secret Life
You're here today
Sing me a song
You're here to stay

Secret Life
It's not a game
Who am I
What's my name

5/4/12 Bruce Clifford
