Queens Of the Stone Age The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret Lyrics

Last updated: 05/31/2011 11:00:00 AM

Well, I've got a secret, I cannot say.
They might've moved me, to give it away.
And you've got somethin', I understand.
I hold it tightly, come on command.
Leap of faith, do you doubt?
Cut you in? I just cut you out.

Whatever you do,
Don't tell anyone.
Whatever you do,
Don't tell anyone.

I look for reflections, in your face.
Canine devotion, time can't erase.
Out on the corner, or locked in your room.
I never believe them, and I never assume.
Stuck in belief, there is a lie.
Promises promise an eye for an eye.
We've got reveal.
No one can know, how we feel!

[repeat chorus 2x]

I think you already know.
How far I'd go not to say.
You know the art isn't gone.
And I'm taking my song to the grave.

[repeat chorus 2x]

@Chris- I imagine this varies by recording. The live recording from... one of these albums (a very good recording, and that's from a guy who doesn't care for live music) definitely includes the "and." To be fair, it's not fully pronounced or given its own full syllable, something like "never believe them, n'I never assume"- almost as a grace note.

mini correction | Reviewer: Chris | 6/2/07

it aint nothin big but i thought i might point it out anyway but where it says "I never believe them, and I never assume" theres no "and" just to let you know it screwed me up at a karoake so it might be a ball buster lol :)
