Songtekst

So if I stand in front of a speeding car
Would you tell me who you are
What you like, what's on your mind
If I'd get it right
How I love that no one knows

And the secret's all that we've got so far
The demons in the dark
Lie again, play pretends
Like it never ends
This way no one has to know

Even the half smile
Would have slowed down the time
If I could call you half mine
Maybe this is the safest way to go

We're singing
Heya heya heya heya
Heya heya heya
This is the safest way to go
Nobody gets hurt
We're singing
Heya heya heya heya
Heya heya heya
You go back to him
And then I'll go back to her

So if I stand in front of a speeding car
Would you give your little heart
Say the word and do it to
Just me and you
This way everyone will know

Cause the secret's all that we've got so far
The demons in the dark
Lie again, play pretends
Like it never ends
This way no one has to know

Even the half smile
Would have slowed down the time
If I could call you half mine
Maybe this is the safest way to go

We're singing
Heya heya heya heya
Heya heya heya
This is the safest way to go
Nobody gets hurt
We're singing
Heya heya heya heya
Heya heya heya
You go back to him
And then I'll go back to her

So if I stand in front of a speeding car
Would you tell me who you are
What you like, what's on your mind
If I'd get it right
How I love that no one knows

And the secret's all that we've got so far
The demons in the dark
Lie again and play pretends
Like it never ends
How I love that no one knows

Advertise my secret
I don't really need it
I know you can feel this
So advertise my secret
I don't really need it
I know you can feel this
So advertise my
Advertise my secret

We're singing
Heya heya heya heya
Heya heya heya
This is the safest way to go
Nobody gets hurt
We're singing
Heya heya heya heya
Heya heya heya
You go back to him
And then I'll go back to her

If I stand in front of a speeding car
Don't know who you are
Don't know who you are

Heya heya heya heya
Heya heya heya
You go back to him
And then I'll go back to her
