The Secrets Of My Heart

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:32

With author's note (Cynthia Haagens)

I wrote the lyrics to "The Secrets of My Heart" and in the CD package they were mistranslated by a Japanese translator who transcribed the lyrics after listening to the song and getting the words completely wrong!! This has been a huge source of both laughs and irritation for me since I wrote the lyric!

Here is my actual lyric:

Private dreams I never told you
Come to hold me in the dark
Moonlit skies and long embraces
Eyes that shine from lovers' faces

You'll never know
The secrets of my heart

Unknown worlds you'll never share,
love
Call to you, we'll sleep apart
Empty arms will wait so lonely
I'll touch the night and let it hold me

You'll never show
The secrets of your heart

Private dreams are meant for living
Trace them with a treasure chart
Tell you all my hidden wishes
And never fly from lovers' kisses

If you could share
The secrets of my heart

Music John Barry
Lyrics Cynthia Haagens and Graeme Clifford
Performed by Kristina Nichols
