It's a shame we'll never let this see the light of day
But don't be afraid,
Your secret's safe with me
And only Heaven knows how far we'll go
To keep them on their toes,
And don't you dare be scared with sins to bare,
'Cause this is who we are

I'll be the reason you're wrong,
But I don't want to be the reason they find you out
Somebody's got it in for you
So don' make a sound, don't make a sound,
Don't let them get the best of you, the best of you
They'll sink their teeth in
If you let them catch you

If these streets could talk
Then I'd know just what they'd say,
"You're reckless at best but you got carried away, you got carried away"
We can really be some devils,
And these stories have a way of telling themselves
Are we don't raising hell?
This time we'll keep the best ones for ourselves

I'll be the reason you're wrong,
But I don't want to be the reason they find you out
Somebody's got it in for you
So don' make a sound, don't make a sound,
Don't let them get the best of you, the best of you
They'll sink their teeth in
If you let them catch you

This city was built on secrets,
It's where all the good ones come from
You must have missed me,
'Cause you don't have a thing to say every time I go away
So this is what we're up against
In this city of secrets
Oh my God, forgive me for who I'm not!
We'll all steal looks when we can,
Driving by the accident,
But we never stop

I'll be the reason you're wrong,
But I don't want to be the reason they find you out
Somebody's got it in for you
So don' make a sound, don't make a sound,
Don't let them get the best of you, the best of you
They'll sink their teeth in
If you let them catch you

I'll be the reason you're wrong (you're wrong),
But I don't want to be the reason they find you out
Somebody's got it in for you
So don' make a sound, don't make a sound,
Don't let them get the best of you, the best of you
They'll sink their teeth in
If you let them catch you
