(Foster / Mercury / Gerrard)

Your secret's safe inside me
Closet man
Safe under lock and key
Understand
What you're thinkin' is important
Isn't really so, you'll see
But your secret's absolutely safe with me

Your lover's songs and nights
Turn into tears
Your tattoos and your muscles
Disappear
And the ring that I once gave you
Now, you're wearin' in your ear
But your secret's absolutely safe my dear

Oh, your secret's safe with me
Oh, your secret's safe right here with me
Oh, your secret's safe with me
Oh, your secret's safe right here with me
You know, it's all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man

There's nothing new at all under the sun
You've got company
You're not the only one
Why, it's older than religion
And, quite honestly, more fun
But your secret's absolutely safe my dear, don't worry

Oh, your secret's safe with me
Oh, your secret's safe right here with me
Oh, your secret's safe with me
Oh, your secret's safe right here with me
You know, it's all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man, yeah

You know, it's all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man
You know, it's all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man
