Diary - Secrets Part 2

continued from here....

Diary - Alicia Keys

Lay your head on my pillow
Here you can be yourself
No one has to know what you are feeling
No one but me and you

I won't tell
Your secrets
Your secrets are safe with me
I will keep
Your secrets
Just think of me as the pages in your diary

I feel such a connection
Even when you're far away
If there's anything that you fear
Call 489 4608 and I'll be here

Only we know what is talked about baby
I don't know how you could be driving me so crazy
So when you're in town
Why don't you come around?
I'll be the loyalty you need
You can trust me

I won't tell
Your secrets
Your secrets are safe with me
I will keep
Your secrets
Just think of me as the pages in your diary

My earlier post was sort of inspired by that single from Alicia Keys' second album "The Diary of Alicia Keys". It's a lovely album and that song is one of my favourites. There's something very beautiful and even sensual about the tone, the words and the song in general. I am a rather private person, and I don't open up much. In today's world, having a guard and a safe zone is always a good thing, because we've just grown accustomed to not trusting a living breathing soul. We read of heartache and betrayal on every corner, and every person we meet tells us about how they were stabbed in the back and taken by surprise about it, summarizing it all with the eventual ".. but I should have seen it coming".

Wouldn't it be nice to share our secrets, freely, without fear of blackmail or condemnation?

Hope you enjoy the cover, though covering Alicia Keys is always going to be difficult so I had to try and change it up a little bit. As always, the original is here and you can download the audio over here.

*wolf whistle at the falsetto* ;-)

Lovely song, and that album is amazing! Alicia Keys is pretty awesome.

Maybe it's just me, but I felt the vocal could've been a tiny bit louder...?
