Words and Music by Timothy Suckow, written in 1988

 

"A Secret Never Told" was another garage band tune from the 1980's that was revived for this album.  Written about helping a friend through emotional problems.

Lyrics

You're a secret never to be told

You're a story waiting to unfold

You're an impact about to explode

and you're a message that we've got to decode

 

You're hiding somewhere in the night

Someone told me you're looking for a fight

You feel useless in your unending plight

Your emotion you keep locked up oh so tight

 

I'm a little less understanding

When it comes to people like you

You can't hide your feelings too long

But I'll help you make it through

 

Don't hide your love inside

Let your true self preside

Make it warm outside

Don't hide your love inside

 

You know I love you no matter what you've done

I won't deny you because we've had so much fun

But you can't deceive me with all your tricks and ways

God knows I've been there but I made it through to maze

 

I've got a message - a secret never told

No matter what the odds are you've got to be bold

And now I see you laughing once again

It's nice to know that you're still my best friend

 

I'm a little more understanding when you finally made it through

You couldn't hide your feelings too long and you won your battle too

 

Don't hide your love inside

Let your true self preside

Make it warm outside

Don't hide your love inside
