THRUTS SECRET

DOUG SHARP LYRICS
CHARLIE MIDNITE MUSIC

YOU LAUGHED WHEN TO LAUGH WAS FORBIDDEN,
AND THE CURSE REMAINS TO THIS DAY
STRANGLING THE TENDER EMOTION
YOU'VE GROWN SO ASHAMED TO DISPLAY.

YOU'RE SEEKING THE SOURCE OF THE LAUGHTER
YOU CAN'T QUITE SEEM TO FORGET.
ALL YOU CAN FIND IS A SMALL, BITTER SMILE
WHICH YOU USE TO CONVEY YOUR REGRET.

CHORUS:

COME CLOSE, AND I'LL WHISPER A RIDDLE
MORE VIVID BY NIGHT THAN BY DAY.
I AM NOT LOST WHEN YOU HOLD ME.
EYES CLOSED, I SEE THE WAY.
STAY CLOSE AND THINK OF AUGUSTINE.
HIS ARMS ARE OPEN WIDE.
HE'S AWAITING A GLIMPSE OF THE SECRET
JUST LIKE YOU AND I.

YOU LIED TO A PRIEST ONCE AT VESPERS,
BUT HE BLESSED YOU AND KISSED YOUR HAND.
IT WAS A LIE FOR FUN NOT FOR PROFIT
THOUGH YOU'VE USED IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.
THE SOUND OF YOUR LAUGHTER IS FOREIGN
A JOY I NEARLY FORGOT
TOGETHER WE CAN FIND ITS VOICE
AMID TREASURES STILL TO BE SOUGHT.

CHORUS:
COME CLOSE, AND I'LL WHISPER A RIDDLE
MORE VIVID BY NIGHT THAN BY DAY.
I AM NOT LOST WHEN YOU HOLD ME.
EYES CLOSED, I SEE THE WAY.
STAY CLOSE AND THINK OF AUGUSTINE.
HIS ARMS ARE OPEN WIDE.
HE'S AWAITING A GLIMPSE OF THE SECRET
JUST LIKE YOU AND I.
