Red Hot Chili Peppers – Silent Partners lyrics

We have to take our chances, we have to keep it down
We have to steal our kisses when nobody's around
We have to hide the tenderness inside
To make love on the sly, you say it's for the better

We have to speak in riddles to cloak the things we say
We have to watch our whispers, not to give ourselves away
We have to run in shadows in the dark
We have to stand apart when they see us together

So we're livin' like silent partners, sneakin' like thieves in the night
Can't let it show, gotta keep it low, so no one knows
We're silent partners, never come to the light
It'll never be right, whatever we do
You need me too much and I'm just not givin' up on you

We have to keep the secret burnin' on our lips
We'd both be hurting someone if they caught us here like this
We have to bear this burden that we share
Knowin' our affair just can't go on forever

And we're livin' like silent partners, sneakin' like thieves in the night
Can't let it show, gotta keep it low, so no one knows
We're silent partners, never come to the light
It'll never be right, whatever we do
You need me too much and I'm just not givin' up on you

Silent partners
I can't let it show, we gotta keep it low, so no one knows
We're silent partners, are we ever gonna come to the light?
It'll never be right, whatever we do
You need me too much and I'm just not givin' up

Silent partners, sneakin' like thieves in the night
Can't let it show, gotta keep it low, so no one knows
We're silent partners, are we ever gonna come to the light?
Can't let it show, gotta keep it low, so no one knows
We're silent partners, sneakin' like thieves in the night
Can't let ... [fade out]
