In My Secret Life

Leonard Cohen


I saw you this morning, you were moving so fast
Can't seem to loosen my grip on the past
And I miss you so much, there's no one in sight
And we're still making love in my secret life

I smile when I'm angry, I cheat and I lie
I do what I have to do to get by
But I know what is wrong and I know what is right
And I'd die for the truth in my secret life

Hold on, hold on, my brother
My sister, hold on tight
I finally got my orders
I'll be marching through the morning
Marching through the night
Moving cross the borders of my secret life

Looked through the paper makes you want to cry
Nobody cares if the people live or die
And the dealer wants you thinking
That it's either black or white
Thank God it's not that simple in my secret life

I bite my lip, I buy what I'm told
From the latest hit to the wisdom of old
But I'm always alone and my heart is like ice
And it's crowded and cold in my secret life
