[Chorus] Can you be private when the juice is sweet And the secret is crimson Can you be quiet when my hands are heat And the riptide rises? Can you be blind and a beggar on your knees? And live on our desire alone Can you ride the tide in this insanity And still keep as still as the shadows? When the cry is so wide on the inside When the truth jumps quick to the heart When the wind or the stars are violent Can you be silent? Here's a little something that the wizard said: "You can kiss, but never tell All the wisdom you need And you'll be needing some Can be heard in the mouth of a seashell" [Chorus] Just the wide grey sky And the hunchback moon Will keep our memories Not a living soul will remember us This is just for you and me 'Cause if you;re out with the boys one night If you;re out with the boys and there's braggin' If you break, speak and call me your lover, I'll lie, I swear, I'll lie, and it will all be over
