IN MY SECRET LIFE
by LEONARD COHEN

Refuge
Refuge
(2017)
I saw you this morning
You were moving so fast
I can't seem to loosen my grip
On the past
I miss you so much
There's no one in sight
And we're still making love
In my secret life
In my secret life

I smile when I'm angry
I cheat and I lie
I do what I have to do
To get by
But I know what is wrong
And I know what is right
And I'd die for the truth
In my secret life
In my secret life

Hold on my brother
My sister, hold on tight
I finally got my orders
I'll be marching in the morning
Marching in the night
Across the borders
Of my secret life

I looked at the paper
It makes me want to cry
Nobody cares if the people
They live or they die
And the dealer wants you thinking
That itís either black or white
I thank God itís not that simple
In my secret life
In my secret life

I bite my lip
I buy what Iím told
From the latest hit
To the wisdom of old
Iím always alone
And my heart is like ice
And itís crowded and cold
In my secret life
In my secret life
In my secret life
In my secret life
