Set It Off – Shhh It's A Secret lyrics

Once upon a time there was someone just like you,
Who lived without a care in the world,
Just a regular girl,
With a secret no one knew...
Or so the story goes

You see the way her lips move
Just trying to get in the groove
You think you hear the truth but the lies keep creeping in

City lights illuminate
Innocence but it's too late
Cause I never wanted it to be this way
Just know that I'll always be here no fear
Let me make one thing clear

That's why you never see it coming,
Cause I could never see the lies behind those eyes
So baby take off your disguise and you'll see sunsets and starlit skies.

That's why you never see it coming,
Confusion boiling like the water that's been heated
Just like my temper when I needed some clarification
But I got it now.

I found these skeletons inside your closet
Tell me my friend what you think I should do?
I am almost 100 percent positive.
That all these skeletons belong to you

Tip top in the bottom bag
Is where she keeps her favorite mag
And I won't fall down in the murky mess of it all

City lights illuminate
Innocence but it's too late
Cause I never wanted it to be this way
Just know that I'll always be here no fear
Let me make one thing clear

That's why you never see it coming,
Cause I could never see the lies behind those eyes
So baby take off your disguise and you'll see sunsets and starlit skies.

That's why you never see it coming,
Confusion boiling like the water that's been heated
Just like my temper when I needed some clarification
But I got it now.

Take my hand I'll guide you there
To a quiet place where no one stares,
It's all you need
To make your life complete

Now that it's all said and done
All I ask of you is be the one
To never hide
Who you are inside

City lights illuminate
Innocence but it's too late
Cause I never wanted it to be this way
Just know that I'll always be here no fear
Let me make one thing clear

That's why you never see it coming,
Cause I could never see the lies behind those eyes
So baby take off your disguise and you'll see sunsets and starlit skies.

That's why you never see it coming,
Confusion boiling like the water that's been heated
Just like my temper when I needed some clarification
But I got it now.
