Got a secret,
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save.
Better lock it in your pocket,
Taking this one to the grave.
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said.
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead.

Why do you smile
Like you have told a secret?
Now you're telling lies
'Cause you have sworn to keep it.
But no one keeps a secret,
No one keeps a secret.
Why when we do our darkest deeds
Do we tell?
They burn in our brains,
Become a living hell.
'Cause everybody tells,
Everybody tells.

Got a secret,
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save.
Better lock it in your pocket,
Taking this one to the grave.
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said.
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead.

Look into my eyes,
Now you're getting sleepy.
Are you hypnotized
By secrets that you're keeping?
I know what you're keeping,
I know what you're keeping.

Got a secret,
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save.
Better lock it in your pocket,
Taking this one to the grave.
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said.
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead.

[Spoken]
- Alison?
- Yes, Katherine?
- I have something I want to tell you, but
You have to promise never to tell anyone.
- I promise.
- Do you swear on your life?
- I swear on my life.
[End spoken]

You Swore you'd never tell.
You swore you'd never tell.
You swore you'd never tell.
You swore you'd never tell.

Got a secret,
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save.
Better lock it in your pocket,
Taking this one to the grave.
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said.
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead.

Got a secret,
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save.
Better lock it in your pocket,
Taking this one to the grave.
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said.
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead.

Got a secret,
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save.
Better lock it in your pocket,
Taking this one to the grave.
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said.
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead.

Yes, two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead.

Yes, two can keep a secret
If one of us is...
Spoken -Dead

    Alright so everyone knows that this is the themesong to pretty little liars. The meaning for "two can't keep a secret, if one of them is dead" is for allison being dead and courtney (her twin) is alive so if you tell both of them a secret and one dies, its just weirdo all over. End of this discussion.

    I believe that much of the meaning of this song is in the lyrics in the first part of the song: "cause two can keep a secret if one of them dead. " meaning if you expect to keep your secrets, secret, then don't tell anyone; not even your most trusted :d

    It is something you cannot tell to anyone. Not to anyone you can't trust. A secret is between group or only a person that is hiding something from every one else. It is a thing that no one must know.
