Secret World - Peter Gabriel

I stood in this unsheltered place
'Til I could see the face behind the face
All that had gone before had left no trace
Down by the railway siding
In our secret world we were colliding
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

So I watch you wash your hair
Underwater, unaware
And the plane flies through the air
Did you think you didn't have to choose it
I alone could win or lose it
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

In this house of make-believe
Divided in two, like Adam and Eve
You put out and I recieve
Did you think you didn't have to choose it
I alone could win or lose it
All the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

Ah the wheel is turning, spinning 'round and 'round
And the house is crubling but the stairways stand

With no guilt and no shame, no sorrow or blame
Whatever it is, we are all the same

Breaking it up
Shaking it up
Making it up
In our secret world

Seeing things that were not there
On a wing on a prayer
In this state of disrepair
Did you think you didn't have to choose it
I alone could win or lose it
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

Shh, listen...

Breaking it up
Shaking it up
Making it up
In our secret world
