I know what you want
I'm gonna take you a midnight show tonight
If you can keep a secret
I got a blanket in the back seat on my mind
And a little place that sits beneath the sky
She turned her face to speak
But no one heard her cry
Drive faster, boy
Drive faster, boy

I know there's a hope
There's too many people trying to help me cope
You got a real short skirt
I wanna look up, look up, look up, yeah, yeah

We were just in time
Let me take a little more off your mind
There's something in my head
Somewhere in the back said
We were just a good thing
We were such a good thing

Make it go away without a word
But promise me you'll stay
And fix these things I've heard
Oh make it go away!
Drive faster, boy

Well, crashing time can't hide a guilty girl
With jealous hearts that start with gloss and curls
I took my baby's breath beneath the chandelier
Of stars in atmosphere
And watch her disappear
Into the midnight show...

Faster, faster, faster...
Oh no, no, no, no, no...
If you can keep a secret
Well, baby, I can keep, if you keep a secret

If you can keep a secret, I can keep a secret
If you can keep a secret
Well, baby I can keep, if you keep a secret. . .

    It's about a guy stalking a girl and killing her. He wants to fix his problem but can't. It's a "Midnight Show"
