Dark clouds may hang on me sometimes

Dark clouds may hang on me sometimes, but I'll work it out...

Secrets, Secrets, are no fun.
Secrets, Secrets, hurt someone.

Everyone has secrets. Everyone. Most people will deny it. A lot of people will say they've got nothing to hide. Some people will even say they're an open book. The truth is, it's all lies.

Unfortunately, everyone has something to hide. Everyone has some deep dark secret that they keep hidden from the world because they're embarrassed or ashamed. Or they're afraid that they will be treated differently, or never looked at the same way again. But look around. There are things you'll never know about your best friend, a family member, the person you love. That's just the way it is. I'm sure you've got a few things that will never pass through your lips too.

And what's worse than keeping secrets from the people we care about? Keeping secrets from ourselves. Sometimes there are things we don't want to admit. Things we don't want to own up to. Things we don't want to remember. Things that we just don't want to deal with and by not thinking about them, hope that they go away on their own. Deep down we know that will never happen, but we keep hoping anyway.

The worst part about secrets is that sometimes they find their way out. No matter how hard you fight to keep them buried under lies and explanations, they find a way to surface. And at the most inconvenient times too.

"Whoever wishes to keep a secret
must hide the fact that he possesses
one."- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
