Chelsea Lankes – Secret Lyrics:
Don’t leave tonight
Stay here no one will find us
We’ll be all right
We’ve got time left to hide us
It’s still the way you want me to
I lost myself when I’m with you
I want to hear my body talk
And we start don’t ever stop
‘Cause every time every time
You tell me pull me closer
Feeling like feeling like
Feeling like it won’t get over
Between you and me
You are the secret I keep
Every time every time
You tell my haters save it
Feeling like feeling like
Feeling like I can’t contain it
Between you and me
You are the secret I keep
It’s too much, you know
We touch and I’m barely breathing
Our love, you know
We touch and no need for speaking
It’s still the way you want me to
I lost myself when I’m with you
I want to hear my body talk
And we start don’t ever stop
‘Cause every time every time
You tell me pull me closer
Feeling like feeling like
Feeling like it won’t get over
Between you and me
You are the secret I keep
Every time every time
You tell my haters save it
Feeling like feeling like
Feeling like I can’t contain it
Between you and me
You are the secret I keep
Every time every time
You tell me pull me closer
Feeling like feeling like
Feeling like it won’t get over
Between you and me
You are the secret I keep
Every time every time
You tell me pull me closer
Feeling like feeling like
Feeling like it won’t get over
Between you and me
You are the secret I keep
Every time every time I tell my haters save it
Feeling like feeling like
Feeling like I can’t contain it
Between you and me
You are the secret I keep
You are the secret I keep
Secret I keep
You are the secret I keep
