I'm going to take you to
My special place
It's a place that you
Like no one else I know
 Might appreciate
I don't go there with anyone--but
You're a special case
For my special place
For my secret place

 People talk to tell you something 
Or to take up space  Guess I'm only talking 
To be talking to
Your pretty face
I don't talk much to anyone, but
You're a special case
For my special place
My secret place

I was born and raised 
In New York City
I'm just getting used to Colorado,
Oh street bravado
 Carry me
Why did you bring me to
A place so wild and pretty?
Are there pigeons in this park,
 Muggers after dark,
In these golden trees,
In the secret place?

I'm going to take you to
My special place
It's a place no amount of hurt and anger 
Can deface 
I put things back together there
It all falls right in place,
In my special space
My special place

Once I saw a film
In New York City
That was shot in Colorado,
Girl meets desperado
In the trembling mountain trees 
Out of all of the girls that you see
In bleachers and cafe windows 
Sitting, flirting with someone  Looking to have some fun
Why did you pick me?
For the secret place
