The Untold Secret Chicago, Illinois

"The Untold Secret" originally started as an album name back in 2010 when I had my temporary name "Struckdown" (don't ask why, I'd prefer not to remember that haha).

Anyway, since then, I've been working on my craft, my voice, and my sound. I'm the only member and that may or may not change. Only God knows.

But don't be afraid to stick around and enjoy yourself. I'll keep your secret.

Track Name: Party Crasher
She's, just a human being
Making the same mistakes
Having the same regrets
That we all share

He's, one that lacks sympathy
He only cares about, only goes on about
Himself

(And he'll never hold your heart the way you want him to)

{Chorus}
He's got
He's got
He's got the biggest ego
He'll take
He'll take
He'll take your heart
And pierce it, slowly
He's spent time with nearly every other girl
After promising you that you're his world
'Cause he's the party crasher
In the party scene he calls life

Remember last Saturday
Whenever you'd call
He'd put you on speaker and speak to you
As if you're all alone

He tells it like it isn't
But he'll say it like it is

(And he'll never hold your heart the way you want him to
Never hold your heart the way you want him to)

{Chorus}
He's got
He's got
He's got the biggest ego
He'll take
He'll take
He'll take your heart
And pierce it, slowly
He's spent time with nearly every other girl
After promising you that you're his world
(Na, na, na...)
'Cause he's the party crasher
In the party scene he calls life

{Interlude}

(And he'll never hold your heart the way you want him to)

And he'll never hold your heart the way you want him to

{Chorus}
He's got
He's got
He's got the biggest ego
He'll take
He'll take
He'll take your heart
And pierce it, slowly
He's spent time with nearly every other girl
After promising you that you're his world
'Cause he's the party crasher
In the party scene he calls life

{Outro}

And he'll never hold your heart the way you want him to

And he never will...
Track Name: Caught Off Guard
Oh, what have you done to me...
Oh, what is inside me...
I feel like this
I feel like that
Yet I feel so at peace with what could stab me in the back

{Chorus}
What's strange is I don't know what you want
I don't even know you but I want what you've got
I'm not sure what makes me move to you
But...
All I wanted to was
(Pass you by)
'Cause all I wanted to was
(Pass you by)
And all I wanted to do is
(Pass you by)
Didn't think you'd catch my eye

Hope, it's a funny thing
It'll keep you alive long enough
Just to keep you breathing

I don't quite understand
What exactly is your plan

Can you help me comprehend?
Can you help me comprehend?

I can be a pretty pessimistic optimist sometimes

Even in all of the tough moments when you would think
That I'm right

{Chorus}
What's strange is I don't know what you want
I don't even know you but I want what you've got
I'm not sure what's making me move to you
But...
All I wanted to was
(Pass you by)
'Cause all I wanted to was
(Pass you by)
And all I wanna do is
(Pass you by)
Didn't think you'd catch my eye

{Interlude}

{Chorus}
What's strange is I don't know what you want
I don't even know you but I want what you've got
I'm not sure what makes me move to you
But...
All I wanted to was
(Pass you by)
'Cause all I wanted to was
(Pass you by)
And all I wanted to do is
(Pass you by)
Didn't think you'd catch my eye
Track Name: Say You're Okay
I'm waking up to a banging on my door
I've barely gotten dressed yet...
(Is anybody home, is anybody)
All of a sudden I hear a series of uproars...
Yeah...
(Is anybody home, is anybody)

I'm walking down Michigan Avenue
Just to see you and only you
But it feels like everything has gone wrong

All of the lights in this Chicago sky
Never seemed so bleak at night...

{Chorus}
Darlin' pick up the phone I've been trying to reach you
No connections, no way home this noon
I just wanna know you're ok
(I just wanna hear your voice say)
Darlin' respond to my letter
I've been trying to write you
No ink, no paper
Guess I'll write in the sky if I have to
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay

Oh...

I'm walking up to a house you used to live in
Made with all the blood and love I've given
(Is anybody home, is anybody)
Now it's all dried up, like a scab
(Is anybody home, is anybody out there)
(Anybody home, is there anybody out there)

I make it to the bedroom
Wondering if you're still dying
From a broken heart to another I yell
(Is anybody home, is anybody)

All the lights I feel like I should be seeing
Never felt so dead at night...

(Is there anybody home, is there anybody out there)

{Chorus}
Darlin' pick up the phone I've been trying to reach you
No connections, no way home this noon
I just wanna know you're ok
(I just wanna hear your voice say)
Darlin' respond to my letter
I've been trying to write you
No ink, no paper
Guess I'll write in the sky if I have to
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay

{Interlude}

{Chorus}
Darlin' pick up the phone I've been trying to reach you
No connections, no way home this noon
I just wanna know you're ok
(I just wanna hear your voice say)
Darlin' respond to my letter
I've been trying to write you
No ink, no paper
Guess I'll write in the sky if I have to
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay
Just say, you're okay
Track Name: Healing Heartbreak
Yeah!...

Carry on
There's no use, there's no use
In singing sad songs
Don't do this, don't do this
To yourself
Just wait and see
Things will get better if you, believe

But you're all like:

"You don't know me. You can't know me.
You don't know, what I'm feeling!
Leave me be! I'm not as strong as you may think."

Can't you see?

{Chorus}
The strongest strengths, lie in weakness
The most beautiful girl, lies in the ugliest past
You can last
You can last
Doesn't matter what happened back then
The future's not...


Move along
There's a love, there's a love
For you to claim
And He's looking your way
Don't distress or regret
Everything, you believed in

It's ok to cry but you deny:

"It's not easy. I just wanna hide. Just let me die.
I don't wanna look ahead. I'd rather stay dead.
And leave all the fragments of my heart behind."

So I'll say it again

{Chorus}
The strongest strengths, lie in weakness
The most beautiful girl, lies in the ugliest past
You can last
You can last
Doesn't matter what happened back then
The future's not, your past...

(You can last)
The future's not your past
(Doesn't matter what, doesn't matter what)
Track Name: Reach Further
Running mouths, accursed clouds
Keeping you from your goal
From your destiny
That was meant for thee
And now there’s an afterglow

Blame the wind, blame the sounds
Keeping you from your full potential
From who you really are
And now you’re lying frozen in snow

Take a trip, get a grip
Of your own surroundings
It’s not too late
It’s not too late

Don’t give up
It’s gonna get better
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give
Don’t give

{Chorus}
Speak, up!...
Get up! Get up!
You are still sleeping
Shut up! Shut up!
Quit complaining, saying it’s just a mess
You’ve gotta realize that it’s just a test

Don’t mind the outcasts
That tell you everything’s worthless when you try
They claim to have their own alibis
But that’s just a piece of paper filled with words and no silver lines

Get away from the castaways
They want you to be this way
They want to convince you that what the shadow says is true
But that won’t matter, no it won’t matter if you fight
If you fight
You can win

{Chorus}
Speak, up!...
Get up! Get up!
You are still sleeping
Shut up! Shut up!
Quit complaining, saying it’s just a mess
You’ve gotta realize it’s just a—
Shut, up!...
Shut your pessimistic mouths
It all gets better with prayer and time
Reach further until you reach the finish line

{Interlude}

Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Don’t give
Don’t give
Don’t give

{Chorus}
Speak, up!...
Get up! Get up!
You are still sleeping
Shut up! Shut up!
Quit complaining, saying it’s just a mess
You’ve gotta realize it’s just a—
Shut, up!...
Shut your pessimistic mouths
It all gets better with prayer and time
Reach further until you reach the finish line
Track Name: Just Drag Me Along
I don’t have much time for pauses
So let me just get this out quick and straight

I’ve been doing just fine and I have you only you to thank
Of course I had a struggle here
And couple bloody tears there but other than that I’m doing great
I released a couple songs about you but, no one can tell but you, is that ok?

How’s your boyfriend doing, tell me how is Frank?
‘Cause I’ve been keeping close tabs on your dates
He ignores you
Teases you
Mistrusts you
Leads you on

{Chorus}
And you just drag me along
Like an overplayed song
A song you barely listen to anymore…
How can you forget that?
That I’m alive!

Let’s write a story and make it gory
Since that is what turns you on
And let’s not forget the party scene that plays your most hated songs!
Let’s write-in your boyfriend Frankenstein
You can be his wife
And let’s end it like Shakespeare, end it with a knife
In the back!
I’ll even add your mourning dad!

{Chorus}
And you just drag me along
Like an overplayed song
A song you barely listen to anymore…
How can you forget that?
That I’m alive!

How can you?
Oh how can you?
How can you forget, that I'm alive?
Track Name: Meeting Her Dad
Bought a suit for nearly thirty grand
Since that is what he demands, she’d date, that kinda man
Yes that kinda man

The kind with money
The kind yet unfunny
The “no-BS” kind of fan

So—

{Chorus}
Sorry pops, your princess is my queen
Doesn’t matter what you want, if you get what I mean
I’ll admit, I’m not Prince Perfect
But who are you to say whether or not I’m worth it?
Who are you, to judge me?

I never gave a care about authority
At least not when it’s so misleading

So—

{Chorus}
Sorry pops, your princess is my queen
Doesn’t matter what you want, if you get what I mean
I’ll admit, I’m not Prince Perfect
But who are you to say whether or not I’m worth it?
Who are you, to judge me? {X2}

{Interlude}

Your baby’s all grown up
Your baby’s all grown up good sir
Your baby’s all grown up
Your baby’s all grown up good sir!

Your baby’s all grown up
Your baby’s all grown up
Your baby’s all grown up oh my word
Who're you? Who're you?
Your baby’s all grown up
Your baby’s all grown up
Your baby’s all grown up good sir

What an angry face you make with that strong jaw
Is that anyway to treat your future son-in-law?

{Chorus}
Sorry pops, your princess is my queen
Doesn’t matter what you want, if you get what I mean
I’ll admit, I’m not Prince Perfect
But who are you to say whether or not I’m worth it?
Who are you, to judge me?
