Secrets and Lies

Hello and goodbye.

Whisky and rye.

Born on the fourth of July.

Time for your flight.

Listening and sight.

Know your plight.

It’s within your sight.

What’s in a name?

What is the game?

Are you in pain?

Free your soul

Like an actor in his role,

like a footballer who scores a goal.

Dead or alive.

Honey and the bee-hive.

Coffee and tea,

Swimming in the sea at dawn.

Do you know when you were born?

What is your age?

Are you going to turn the page?

Read the story.

What price glory?

Winter, Spring and sun behind the lake

We’re all playing for high stakes.

What you know

is what you take.

The sea and the lake.

Asleep and awake

rest thy weary head

and go to bed,

sweat dreams my love!

You’re free, just like the beautiful white dove.
