Gettin' Gone

Don't tell me you see right through me
It ain't healthy I like to keep a little mystique
You never know when you'll need some mystery man
Coming to you
Remember that whenever you can
Oh whenever you can

Old memories can keep you company
Nobody should steal those secrets away
You give a few to the very best of friends
Keep the rest
You'll be needing them again and again

Gettin' gone, moving on
I'm a mum as I can be
I fall in love
What you know
The secrets roll right out of me
Gettin' gone, rollin' on
On my own as I can be
I fall in love
What you think
The secrets fly right out of me
Remember that whenever you can

So many rules to follow
W're already trying to find the right one to break
It's so far getting out beyond that fence
It ain't a real one
Remember that whenver you can
Oh whenever you can

Oh don't we go around in circles
Can't see it all from where I stand
We let go of what they say this world is
We'll be living in a better land

I'm gettin' gone, moving on
I'm a mum as I can be
I fall in love
What you know secrets roll right out of me
Secrets roll right out of me

An old lady and two old gentlemen
They waltz by me, I hear them
As they turn and they spin
Remember y'all, when we used to be such kids
It ain't over
Remember that whenever you can
Oh whenever you can

Oh don't we go around in circles
Can't see it all from where I stand
We let go of what they say this world is
We'll be living in a better land
