Your Secret's Safe (for Ansel from Eve)

We may both be broken
Just a tiny bit imperfect
But each of us can detect
What the other leaves unspoken
You feed your neo-pet
And I’ll take it for a walk
We don’t even have to talk
‘Cause we’ve got it as good as it gets

Your secret’s safe with me
I see through those shy brown eyes
You’re just a prince in disguise
My secret’s safe with you
I may dress like a schoolgirl
But one of these days you and I could rule the world

So take a bow with me
For no reason at all
Get on my shoulders and we can be
Ten or twelve feet tall
We make quite a team
The perfect balance of brains and beauty
So let’s go after our dream
It is our civic duty

Your secret’s safe with me
I see through those shy brown eyes
You’re just a prince in disguise
My secret’s safe with you
I may dress like a schoolgirl
But one of these days you and I could rule the world

We’ll make the city sweeter
We’ll keep the firehouses open
We’ll bring back the fifty-cent subway token
And eliminate all parking meters

Your secret’s safe with me
I see through those shy brown eyes
You’re just a prince in disguise
My secret’s safe with you
I may dress like a schoolgirl
But one of these days you and I could rule the world
