Stan Davis: Music

18 I Need a Secret

words & music by Stan Davis
THERE’S RUMOURS ABOUT ME
FROM INSIDE OF THE K-G-B
WITH WORD I’LL GET THE AXE
AS A SPY KNOWN TO HIDE THE FACTS
THEY REALIZED SOON
THE CRASH WAS NOT A BALLOON FROM THE CIRCUS
SO WE NEED TO DEVISE
SOME MADE-UP CLASSIFIED LIES THEY’LL BELIEVE

I NEED A SECRET
TO OFF-SET THIS THREAT
VY NE MOZHETE SKAZAT N’YET
I NEED A SECRET
OTHERWISE I
WILL BE SAYING “GOOD-BYE” FOREVER

THEY’LL WANT SOME CLOSURE
AND I’LL/YOU’LL BE DEAD OR ABOUT TO BE
BUT FIRST, THEY’LL TORTURE
TO TRY TO GET THE TRUTH
OUT OF ME
FORCE ME TO TALK
UNLESS WE SOMEHOW CONCOCT A GOOD STORY
WE WILL NEED A GOOD STORY
THAT CAN THEY BE TOLD
TO SHOW THAT I’M/YOU’RE NOT WITH-HOLDING THE TRUTH

I/YOU NEED A SECRET
TO OFF-SET THIS THREAT
FIND SOME WAY TO GET
SOMETHING TOP SECRET
OTHERWISE I WILL BE SAYING “GOOD-BYE” FOREVER
